MOST DISAPPOINTING GIG
Crooked Colours @ Mr. Lonely Fremantle/The Monastery (19 August 2017)

Not so much for the performance (that seemed pretty good) but the night overall, I suspect the gig would have been awesome if it wasn’t for the poor event planning didn’t do the band any justice. Late doors open, poor entry management, and venue not adequate for what felt like a way oversold show. Why force people who have a ticket in hand to wait while those buying on the door were let through?
