MEZZANINE PLAY LAST SHOW EVER Mezzanine have decided to call it a day, with the band officially hanging up their collective boots in January. As champions of the indie rock underground and mainstays of the effervescent Perth grunge pop scene since 2008, the last seven years have seen the band release two EP’s, one album and tour the nation five times.
They’ve survived three line-‐up changes, racked up over 150 shows and supported the likes of The Black Angels, The Laurels, British India, Dappled Cities and Even to name just a few. Most times they were great, some times they were bad.
Awkward, obnoxious, dramatic and loud are adjectives you’d often hear at a show depending on who you asked. But one thing was for certain; they had an unmistakable passion for the music they were playing which was channelled at ear bleeding volume through the enigmatic behaviour of front man Cory Rist and his more reserved song writing partner in crime, David Jago.
They will leave a legacy as a hard working band, type cast as an underdog in a scene that often favoured musical trends over substance. Mezzanine will delve deep into their back catalogue and perform one last time at Amplifier Bar on Saturday January 10th. Support comes from Tired Lion, Pat Chow, Black Stone From The Sun and Surf Rabbits.
Tickets are just $10 (plus bf) from Oztix or $15 on the door if available. Click here to purchase.
