Sydneysiders braved the sudden rainstorm on Wednesday night to see Gypsy & The Cat perform at The Oxford Art Factory. The audience soon forgot the dismal weather as beautifully crafted harmonies and Xavier Bacash’s impressive vocal range filled the air. Jumping between the keyboard, guitar and vocals, Lionel Towers made up the other half of the Melbourne Duo, who only started writing together in August of 2008.
From the opening bars of ‘Time to Wander", it’s clear why the song was chosen for the Kitsune Maison 9 compilation. Xavier paused with a cheeky grin to ask the crowd “Do you like this song?” Judging by the amount of punters jumping around, I’d say that was a big fat, 'Yes'.
Jessica Mauboy even took some time away from recording with Snoop Dogg to pop backstage at OAF to say hello.
