The Living End are one of Australia's greatest treasures.
And they proved exactly why on Saturday night, with an incredible show in front of a home-town crowd at the Forum, Melbourne.
Playing a career-spanning set (with a healthy dose of their latest album, Wunderbar, the 3-piece showed exactly why they continue to draw crowds, and improve like a fine wine.
Here's what we thought:
While West Thebarton were the only support act of the night, they proved that they're set to headline shows of this calibre very soon. Drawing from their somewhat short discography so far, they nevertheless put on a live show that meant there were more than a few new fans in the audience.
However, it was clear to see that everyone was there to see the Living End. There were more than a few The Living End t-shirts in the crowd, spanning different eras, and it's a testament to the band that they continue to attract new fans to this day.
Frontman Chris Cheney had the crowd in the palm of his hand from the first song, and rather than the ebbs and flows of a normal concert, this kept building and building. Even the band had to stop to catch their breath, but every time they lifted in intensity, the crowd matched them.
Songs from Wunderbar sounded right at home amongst the Living End's earlier work, and if you haven't seen the Living End live, you're missing out.
