As the night grew colder on Saturday, October 29, 2022, everyone eagerly gathered in their Halloween costume waiting to see their favorite Australian rock band. The entrance line warped around Stubb’s with fans and the venue was packed to the brim with people of all ages. Fans were waiting patiently in GA expressing their excitement for their favorite band to come out to perform. However, before the band could perform their Day 2 set they had two openers set to perform before them.

Suddenly there was a flash of light migrating everyone’s attention to the stage and there they were one of the openers, The Murlocs, ready to set the tone of the night. As soon as they played their first song they already won the heart of the fans. They had people bopping their heads and swaying side to side enjoying the Australian rock bands' music. They continued rocking on with the fan's approval leaving people dancing until their last song. They left people wanting more and left the next band with a group of fired-up fans.

While fans waited for the next band to take the stage they continued to talk about how amazing The Murlocs set was, as they bonded over this their attention moved to the stage once again the lights started flashing. Then another Australian rock band took the stage, Tropical F*ck Storm, and captivated the audience with their amazing songs. People immediately started dancing, swaying from side to side, and continued with this energy throughout their set. Tropical F*ck Storm ended their set with their popular rendition of “Stayin’ Alive” by Bee Gees. This caused the audience to scream out of excitement and jump up and down out of joy at hearing this energetic cover. Once they left the stage fans, began to anxiously wait, only minutes before they saw their favorite band take the stage.

Everyone in the audience had a smile from ear to ear, communicating their enthusiasm as they anticipated the main act to take the stage for the second time at Levitation. As fans continued to talk amongst themselves suddenly the lights turned off, people started screaming, and once they heard the first guitar string people started moshing. In all their glory King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard took the stage for the second time at Levitation with their banging hit “Rattlesnake.” For the entirety of the song, for 7 minutes and 48 seconds, people did not miss a beat. They were moshing, dancing, swaying, and everyone’s face was full of joy. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard bought a night full of energetic filled songs. They played many of their hits leaving their fans in awe. Throughout their set, the members of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard matched the energy of the fans. Both the fans and the band gave all the energy they got into their set. From their very first song all the way to their last song the fans did not stop moshing and dancing, not even for a second. Finally, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard played their last song and walked off stage leaving the fans cheering and showing their support for them. Their set may have been loud but the cheering of the fans was louder.

Overall, for it being my first time seeing King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard live, it was a night filled with a very loud yet fun set and a night filled with moshing. Their fans were all very nice, they made sure everyone was safe while moshing and they were respectful to the people who didn’t want to mosh. If you ever want to have a fun night filled with music that will make you want to mosh then I definitely recommend going to a King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard show. I had such a fun night being able to see the Australian bands The Murlocs, Tropical F*ck Storm, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, and would encourage you to check them out.
