“Entering the Gershwin room at The Espy for the first time, I notice local act Mushroom Giant setting up their equipment ready for their set. Their psychedelic-metal vibe and complete array of songs was an experience to say the least. The first thing I noticed was that this band was experienced and definitely had a large following. They really knew how to create an atmosphere that would enchant the older audience. This started with the visuals – it was really something else. The backdrop began with a journey through space, accompanied with the lights ranging between magenta and baby blue, giving an experience that was not just aural but took you on a visual journey too. Songs like “Woman Heroin” and “400 and Falling” were the crowd favorites at Rock The Bay, with people grooving along at their own pace with organic fluid motions. A spectacular show from Mushroom Giant! I did not expect such an intense vibe. It was incredible.”
