Converge -- Sydney, Australia -- February 16th, 2013
Fourth time seeing Converge, and I have to say they keep getting better. Sounded amazing, Jacob was as frenetic as ever and they put on a killer set. Only complaint is that for a band with a back catalogue as big as they do, they could probably fit a few more songs in!
As an added bonus, Old Man Gloom were the support for this tour, with Stephen Brodsky replacing Caleb Scofield on tour duties. I have to say, with Genghis Tron as support for their last Australian tour and OMG as current support, Australia has done pretty well with Converge tours!
Good on Nate Newton for doing double duties for the whole tour too!
