Sydney, it was time to hop into your spaceships and fly into The Goods universe for an intermit gig at Waywards, The Bank Hotel. With their space funk, low slung house and club soul sound; I knew it was going to get groovy. The Goods are currently on tour to promote their latest EP, Make Your Move. To keep you moving, they brought along their friends Milan Ring and Mike Who.

As I entered the intermit Waywards, it was buzzing. DJ Mike Who, was filling our ears with a funk soul and RnB mix that was setting up a soulful night.

Up next, we had Milan Ring with a chilled RnB set that featured four originals and one cover. Milan Ring started off strong with her latest track Obscured; followed by Chop Suey from her EP, Venus Fly TrapMilan Ring’s set was mesmerising to watch as she holds her own on stage with her smooth, mature voice. As she recreates her song through loops and electric guitar the crowd was getting down and grooving along.

DJ Mike Who, appeared again to keep the good vibes coming, with his seamless transition between songs. Music was endless.

The time of the night came, when The Goods provided us with “The Goods”. Rosario on the drums and Badmandela on bass began their set. Frontman, Black Tree walked on stage with swagger from the back curtain that was met with cheers and excitement from the crowd.

The Goods delivered with their own sound and style; while keeping their dynamic and tight presence on stage. During their set Rosario and Badmandela killed their two solos, which showcased their individual strength and favour as musicians. Black Tree jumped into the crowd and danced along, supporting his fellow band members. Black Tree’s vocals are smooth and sexy that fits perfectly with their sound. The Goods where vibeing off the crowd and grooving along, which showed they were connected to their music and as a band.

A special part of The Goods live shows for their Make Your Move EP Tour, was their colourful and detailed projections and lighting. Darkcinema was the designer behind this production element. I could tell they were carefully designed to fit the vibe of each individual song in their set. The projections and lighting washed over the stage that lit up the band. This element was visually stunning. It was an artistic choice that is rarely seen at an intermit gig, like this one. It really made their performance unique.

The Goods put on a killer set playing their entre EP, Make Your Move and songs from their 2016 self-titled album.

Next stop is Melbourne at The Gasometer, this coming Saturday 23rd of June. So Melbourne, don’t miss out on this funky gig. Get your dancing shoes on and make your move.
