Just a note, l was half an hour late cause I was eating 😂 and then had to leave before Linc’s ‘Buddy Holly’ cover to pick up my mum, but Lincoln le Fevre shows are always some of my absolute favourites.
Tonight’s show at The Retreat was a songwriters session, which involved Linc talking about writing, performing and music in general and I was glad to have caught the end of cause it’s always entertaining watching Linc ‘talk shit’ as he calls it. For those expecting a professional set when they think ‘Hey, let’s go see Lincoln Le Fevre tonight,’ you will be sorely disappointed. However, those who are out for a really good time, you will be granted that and then some.
I’ve only been going to his shows for a little under a year, but there is a certain endearing quality to Linc as a performer, and this is one of the main reasons why I continue to go to his shows. The other reasons include the lack of structure, the forgotten lyrics, the (bad) jokes, the heckles and his incredulouness when there aren’t any, the fact that I spend half the set grinning like a goofball and of course the music. The set tonight was no different and I’m so grateful my request for ‘Tracey’ was fulfilled, even though I’m always happy with whatever he chooses to play. The rest of the set that I got to see included ‘On and On’, ‘Dilletantes’, ‘Get Drunk, See Bands’, ‘Sweet Sin’ and ‘Hope and Crown.’ 💖
Linc is playing a full band set on Sunday night to support The Sugarcanes during their Old Bar residency. Head on down for some guaranteed good times, I’ll be seeing Albert Hammond Jr. so unfortunately won’t make it, but please go support all these legends!
