Good on them for coming to Adelaide and Perth, those cities get overlooked by a lot of acts. Fowlers Live isn't a bad venue either -- I have seen Saosin, Frenzal Rhomb and even Rise Against there.
It's basically a pub. Next time I saw RA was at a theatre. Next time at the city's biggest non-sporting stadium.
Great news for SA fans. They'd overlooked Aus in general apart from a Soundwave addition. Unfortunately for me I'm in Europe so will have to wait till they tour here to see them again.
Fowler's Live is a great venue in terms of set up and location but the sound quality there isn't the best. That being said I've had some of my fave shows there - Thrice, Calling All Cars, Motion City Soundtrack, etc.
