We were first introduced to NAO a couple years ago when one of our favourite producers, IAMNOBODI, shared a link to one of her songs. Ever since then we’ve been patiently waiting for the chance to see her perform live and last night that came to fruition when she played in Sydney to a sold-out crowd. Check out our review of the show.
The 5 to 9 Life team has already had the exciting opportunities of reviewing more than a handful of live gigs in 2016 thanks to the local and international acts that have been in town for such events as Falls Festival, Twilight at Taronga and Laneway Festival.
From the latter, we’ve caught The Internet and Vince Staples perform intimate shows in Sydney, and now we have a review of the highly anticipated sold-out Goldlink show that occurred last Friday night. Read on for the review.
