Sticky Fingers performance at the Corner Hotel on March 30th was the second of their three consecutive sold out shows, and it definitely stuck with their growing reputation. The Sydney based five-piece know how to put on a performance.
Support act Little Bastard set the scene for a great night ahead. Good vibrations filled the packed out room as the seven-piece Sydney band whipped out their jubilant country-style tunes. Patrons were dancing left, right and centre – it was difficult not to. Their track Baby I’m Bored evoked the biggest response, and they concluded their set with High for You; the first single from their self-titled debut album, set to be released May 9th.
Little Bastard was a great pre-empt to Sticky Fingers performance, as they exhilarated the crowd by shouting, “are you all excited for Sticky Fingers?”
Yes they were.
The crowd went wild at 10:10pm when Sticky Fingers opened their second show of the week with Freddy Crabs. The piano score reached the heavens, as did the room while the enthusiasts took to crowd surfing; legs and arms were flying everywhere. The brooding guitar electrics added gravity to the electronic driven soundscape.
The room was further energised by the blue, yellow and pink LEDs and circling strobes. This effect seemed only natural to accompany the vibes when Sticky Fingers front man Dylan Frost sung the tantalising “so I say, I hate when you’re away” lyrics to the recognisable 2012 hit Caress Your Soul. Everybody was begging for more.
The room then slowed down to the reggae-like style of How to Fly. The arpeggio piano chords were matched with the steady play of the four-chord ukulele, with a mix of enigmatic guitar notes. The pace sped up again as the set came to a close with triple j’s 2013 hottest 100 hit Australia Street. The band walked off stage only to be summoned again by the roaring crowd. Sticky Fingers performed an encore of How to Fly and Australia Street. A well spent Sunday night at The Corner.
