Ball Park Music @ The Tivoli

Ball Park Music enjoyed a raucous homecoming last night at The Tivoli as part of their national Puddinghead Tour and they did not disappoint their fans, ripping through a sensational set spanning all three albums. Songs new and old were well received with iFly and Fence Sitter proving particularly popular. There are few bands this early in their careers who could play for the best part of 90 minutes and have the audience singing along to every track, but such was the case last night. New songs such as She Only Loves Me When I’m There and Everything is Shit Except My Friendship With You contain all the humour synonymous with the band, yet are much more than just witty ditties. With tracks such as Literally Baby, It’s Nice to Be Alive, Happy Healthy Citizen of the Developed World Blues, Coming Down and Surrender also featuring, there was an infectious vibe amongst the crowd from the outset that never let up.

The obligatory encore produced shock and awe as they ripped out a superb version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody to finish the evening on a rousing note. The quintet was in great spirits all night, their musicality only matched by their good time vibe and what seemed a genuine appreciation of their fans.

Support acts Holy Holy and Papa vs Pretty laid the foundations for what proved to be a great night.

Ball Park Music play Byron Bay tonight and then return to Brisbane on Sunday for an under 18’s show at the Alhambra Lounge.
