Civic @ Hi Dive, Denver CO, 2023-10-14


Civic is an Australian punk rock band that formed in 2017.  They sound a bit like their fellow country men Radio Birdman with a mix of Iggy and the Stooges.  A bit of a darker menacing edge.  Their new album 'Take By Force' has been in almost constant rotation since it came out earlier this year.  So catchy and rocking.  It was also produced by Radio Birdman's Rob Younger.   

I was super stoked to see that they were coming to my favorite room in Denver the Hi Dive.  On a weekend too so even better.  On the bill as well were locals Cleaner and Public Opinion.  Both played great sets.  

Civic treated us to lots of tracks from the new album but the setlist spanned their entire catalog.  Such  a high energy and fun show.  Certainly in the running for show of the year for me.  Looking forward to hearing more from these guys and hopefully seeing them again someday.  It sounds like they had a really nice time touring the US based on an interview I read recently.   Check them out on bandcamp and support them and all independent artists.  It's hard work and most aren't getting rich pursuing what they love.

Love the sound in the Hi Dive and this one didn't disappoint either.  Turned out really nice I think.  Enjoy.
