FRINGE REVIEW: BASKET CASE (WITH SPECIAL GUESTS-RIPCORD), ARKABA HOTEL, 2019

On Sunday night, Basket Case showed off the goods in a full-concert experience of everything Green Day.

Fans came to celebrate the 25th year of Dookie, Green Day’s third studio album and start of their success in the music biz.

Warming up the stage were the folks from Ripcord- who delivered a fine-tuned version of old-school garage band days.

With youth and humour, these South Aussie kids played to a shy crowd, showing off their talent and resilience.

Next, Basket Case graced the stage starting off strong and showing people how they get stuff done.

Lead singer/guitar Jamie captivated through crowd interaction, and the attitude that one could only hope a lead could deliver.

The band delivered high-impact energy, even through a few minor tech glitches.

By the end of the night, voices were lost, and feet were sore, but all worthwhile to sing and dance along to the favourites and have a wicked time.

With claims from multiple crowd members that the experience was true to Green Day form, it is recommended you catch these guys if you ever had the chance!
