Tonight I cherished the privilege of once again seeing Kate Tempest perform live. This time, I saw her in my hometown of Perth while wearing the same Doc Martens I wore-in at her Festival N°6 set in the lush wonderland of Portmeirion.
Tempest began the show by ravaging the Perth crowd with highlights from her first two albums. Notably, my faviourite of her tracks, Europe is Lost.
But what made this show truly special was the way in which she transitioned transitioned tenderly into the hopeful notes of her latest album, The Book Of Traps And Lessons, which she then performed in full.
Supported by the electric homegrown rap-poetry talent Omar Musa, This evening was a gig you should be sorry you missed.
