YouTube sensations, Alex Goot and Against The Current were in town last Thursday for a one night show. Held on the 21st of August at Scape the Ground Theatre, the showcase was graced by opening acts, Gentle Bones and The Summer State.
Gentle Bones (aka Joel Tan) was first up and the local performer was joined by violinist Josh Wei on stage to perform songs from his latest Extended play. Their acoustic performance was very well-received by the audience and songs such as “Elusive” and “Until we Die” were the crowd’s favorites.
Local pop/rock band, The Summer State was up next and they played their self-compositions, “I Do I Don’t”, “Trying Was My Only Regret” and many more. The band’s energy on stage was infectious and they got the audience hyped up with their thundering beats, setting the atmosphere for the next act of the night – Against The Current.
Loud screams can be heard as members of Against The Current stepped onto the stage. Chrissy Costanza, front woman of Against The Current brought in the most screams as she appeared on stage with her all black assemble, exposing her midriff and showing off her slim and toned figure.
The band played their original compositions such as “Comeback Kid” and “Infinity” with Chrissy running around all corners of the stage and engaging the entire audience. However, it was the familiar tunes of popular hits such as The 1975’s “Chocolate” and Paramore’s “Ain’t It Fun” that got the audience most hyped. The band delivered a solid performance and the crowd were left wanting more.
Alex Goot, joined with the band members of Against The Current providing band support, ended the night by serenading the fans with a keyboard on stage. Alex mesmerized the audience with his melodic vocals and skilled keyboard playing as he did an awesome job with his rendition of Owl City’s “Good Time” and The Fray’s “How to Save a Life”.
For the encore, Oasis’ “Wonderwall” and The Script’s “Breakeven” were performed by Alex together with the band members of Against The Current. It was a magical moment as the audience sang along to the tunes, leaving a lasting impression and ending the showcase on a good note.
