Indie darlings, Camp Cope returned to Hobart for the first time in 4 years to deliver a masterful set of their “power emo”.
Playing to a capacity audience at The Republic Bar, the now four-piece band belted out a strong, and popular selection of their songs from their self-titled debut LP, through their highly-regarded sophomore release, How To Socialize & Make Friends to their recently-released 3rd album, Running With The Hurricane.
There wasn’t a single song that was sung by Georgia Maq that the assembled fans didn’t sing enthusiastically along with, a fact that didn’t go unnoticed, and was certainly welcomed by the band . The adoring crowd engaged proudly with the band throughout the entire performance, with a large outpouring of love for bass-player, Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich who was playing her last show with the band for the time being due to her pregnancy.
Camp Cope are taking a short hiatus to draw breath before hitting the shores of the US and Canada throughout July and August.
