The Dirty Mags – Horseshoe Tavern – NXNE 2011
The very late 3 am time slot meant that a lot of people missed out on seeing this act but I’m glad we managed to catch them.
Knowing nothing about an act means you can view them with a completely open mind, the immediate appeal of The Dirty Mags stage presence made us want to see more. Slightly emulating The Cults Ian Astbury, the lead singer’s swagger and an vocals kept the audience’s attention and tight sound from the rest of the band made the act worthy of a better time slot.
Perhaps when they perform at Rifflandia Festival in Victoria in September they’ll get a time that enables them to win over the West Coast audience.
