Clubbing, gigs and shows
AUSSIE hip hop duo Spit Syndicate are proud of the open relationship they share with their fan base. Nick Lupi and Jimmy Nice prefer small-venue shows without ‘‘crowd barriers’’ and meet and greet fans after gigs. Lupi says the pair are passionate about the ‘‘intimate side’’ to gigging. ‘‘When we get off the stage, we are happy to take pictures with people and we thank them for coming to the gig,’’ he says. ‘‘I think both parties gain a lot from interaction. We are extremely grateful and it’s important to share that.’’ Spit Syndicate released their third album, Sunday Gentleman this year and hit the road to celebrate their latest single, Amazing. ‘‘The song really sets the scene for what we have been up to the last few years,’’ Lupi says. ‘‘ Amazing captures what we have been through and where we are right now – what is going through our heads. It’s not all smooth sailing and sell-out shows, but that feeling you get on stage, performing, makes it all worth it.’’ Spit Syndicate are working on new material and have a few surprise collaborations in store for 2014. ‘‘It’s too early to start describing the direction of the next album, but it’s going to be a real step up in terms of production, choruses and guests,’’ Lupi says. Fans can expect to get close when the rappers bring their ‘‘intimate show experience’’ to The Loft, Chevron Island, tonight. ‘‘There will be lots of interaction and energy and we have some surprises planned,’’ Lupi says.
Spit Syndicate, Joyride, Stalkz & Ozborn and Lane-Harry x Ike Campbell play The Loft on Chevron Island tonight.
