Club­bing, gigs and shows

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - CONTENTS - – ROSE SADLEIR

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.
