We had a chat with local legends TrickGypsy

If you can’t tell, we’re big fans of TrickGypsy. After recently having them at our Fresh Music Night, the band are also playing the In Bloom stage at the Geelong Show this weekend.

Find out a little bit more on the band below.

Can you please tell us a bit about your band/act/artist?

We are a punk three-piece made up of Felix on vocals and guitar, Josh on bass and vocals and Tom on drums. We currently have an EP ‘Devil Teddy’ that is available everywhere online and physical CDs.

How long have you been in the band/act/performing?

We’ve been around for about two and a half years.

Do you remember your first gig and what was it like?

We played at the Black Hatt in front of a hundred or so older bluesy musicians. They weren’t that keen on us but hopefully it was because our genres clashed and not because we sucked.

What can we expect to see from your performance at the Geelong Show?

Something to break, whether it be eardrums or guitar strings, and maybe some music here and there, we’ll see.

Who’s another Geelong act (or from around the region) you’d love to collaborate with and why?

It would be a crime not to say King Gizzard, but if we’re talking current local acts I’d have to say Snake Oil Psychics, some punk-psych would be an interesting sexy mix. Hi Rugge if you’re reading this ❤

What do you think of the current state of the Geelong music industry and where do you think it is headed?

The Geelong music scene has always been thriving and has always been really raw and influenced by other Geelong music around. I think that there will be more music venues popping up for local acts in the next couple years, which will be good for the scene and is much-needed nowadays.

What are you social links so people can follow you?

You can find and like us on Facebook for updates on gigs and music, we’re also on spirit and iTunes and all that good.

TrickGypsy are taking to the In Bloom stage at the Royal Geelong Show from October 20-22.
