I had no idea this was on until about an hour before it started. So out in the rain and into Ric's where a small but friendly crowd saw Melbourne based NintyNine deliver a highly enjoyable set. The band is led apparently by one of the two keyboard/guitarist/percussionists but seriously, the spotlight was literally on the drummer and it was hard to take your eyes off someone who so obviously enjoys his work. Unfortunately the vocals were under amplified esp the second mic and can be hard to hear on a couple of songs.

Bonus: indiie has video of the gig up on youtube
You'll see what I mean about the drummer.
