GZA (Wu-Tang Clan) and Pharoahe Monch @ Waves, Wollongong 8.01.2012

One day after playing to a packed out Metro Theatre in Sydney, Pharoahe Monch and GZA traveled down to little old Wollongong to play in front of 100 people. ONE HUNDRED. I was initially embarrassed for my home town when I got there but the poor turn out (due to late announcement of show when most probably already had Sydney tickets) was a blessing in disguise. The small crowd made it a very intimate couple sets from the guys from NYC and it was amazing. Pharoahe rocked with the same energy he did the night before and got the fans going. Simon Says goes off, regardless of how many people are around. Desire was much better than the night before as well because they used the original backing vocals of the singer that did the chorus. GZA? I didn't want to wait for him to come out an hour late but decided to stick around and boy was I glad. He came out and spat for a minute, then took a seat for a minute at the edge of the stage, got up and proceeded to perform his one hour show smack bang in the middle of the moshpit. It was unreal. It was special. The Genius. The Wu-Tang legend playing in front of 100 white kids in the Gong. Wow.
