Completing a two-night sold out stand at Brisbane's Tivoli Theatre, Aussie (Perth) rockers Birds of Tokyo impressed me last night with how far they have come since I caught them at the same venue nearly 2 years ago.

Tonight the sold out crowd was entertained by a matured, polished band backed up by a vastly improved lighting setup which added the finishing touch to an already fantastic experience.

Drawing on past hits like "Plans", "Silhouettic" and "Wild At Heart" from their back catalogue of albums, the band also performed a solid selection from their recently released "March Fires" album with tracks like "This Fire" and the anthemic "Lanterns"... songs which have brought them so much success already this year.

For me, a highlight of the night was definitely the inclusion of their beautiful 2012 release "The Lake", a song which was included way down the back of their 2012 EP release "This Fire". Good stuff and a great way to launch into a well received encore.
