Hot Swiss Mistress with Onanon

Sooooo looking forward to the smoking ban...

But I digress. It has been a couple of months since my last encounter with Onanon, which may or may no have been at National Anthem. Not sure if it was a combination of musical growth, or previous bad mixing (esp. at National Anthem), but I really really enjoyed their set.

I'm not sure if I'd ever heard a Hot Swiss Mistress song previously, so was a little unsure of what to expect. The mellow grooves were great, although a little more slap bass wouldn't have gone astray. I had a few more profound thoughts, but half a week's work has already erased them. L* was so impressed that she pinched the poster on the way out, and it now has a prominent place on our wall. The music was a clear highlight for her, as she found The Crown itself a bit puzzling. She was a bit taken aback when I pointed out there was no eftpos, and scurried off to get some money out from the other bar. She was further taken aback when she found there was no cider, she then requested a vodka & pineapple (the bartender did check to clarify that there was no pineapple juice), before settling on a vodka & orange. From Auckland? Really?
