Seth Sentry’s Strange New Past at the Astor Theatre

– By Carla Avendano

As soon as we reached the Astor you could feel the buzz roaring through the crowd. Seth Sentry was back in town touring his latest album Strange New Past. Although a little different from his previous release, This Was Tomorrow, there was definite excitement to see this lyrical bogan genius spit his shit.

 

Opening acts Ivan Ooze and Dylan Joel, also from Melbourne, set the night off to a great start, getting the crowd pumped for what was to come. Ivan Ooze treated us to a few tracks from his album The Social Alien Mixtape. ‘District 9’ and ‘Mt. Moon’ were among the few that got the crowd loose. Dylan Joel hit the mic with some fresh bests off his latest release That’s Good, including ‘No Reason’, ‘There it Is’ and ‘Treat Her Mad’. They brought life to the stage, and amped up the fans, but we couldn’t wait for Seth.

 

Finally, blasting through the theatre the start to ‘How Are You’, Seth Sentry appeared on stage alongside DJ Sizzle. Seth followed on with ‘Vacation’, which would unfold to become one of the longest singsongs I’ve ever been apart of. ‘Float Away’ and ‘Dumb’ also had fans singing along with their favourite rapper, word for word.

 

Seth, always so humble, thanked everyone for being there and apologized for being a little crook. I was so glad he chose to preform at The Astor this time round, a way better choice than the last time I saw him in Fremantle. It sounded so much better. ‘My Scene’ and ‘Run’, a great combination of both This Was Tomorrow and Strange New Past, seemed to be the theme of the night. Taking it a little further back with ‘Dear Science’, and even further back with ‘The Waitress Song’, fans showed Seth with continuous love, singing along word for word.

Some crowd surfing followed ‘Campfire’, with everyone trying to help out and get the main man back on stage. Afterwards, Seth got Ivan Ooze and Dylan Joel back out to help him finish off ‘Fake Champagne’. Seth showered his fans in real champagne, before thanking the crowd and DJ Sizzle. His fans gave him equal thanks with a roar of applause, whistles and cheers. As much as Seth Sentry loves Perth, Perth loves Seth Sentry.
