King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard took the stage at The Roxy to an antsy, sunburnt, straight-from-Coachella crowd and were greeted like old friends. Australia mates ORB opened and were very reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne, and the perfect intro to King Giz. Stu and the boys took the stage shortly after and the crowd simultaneously exploded into a sweaty, cramped, painful, yet perfect hell-hole. “Rattlesnake,” “Gamma Knife,” and “Robot Stop” prodded everyone in the crowd to get as close to the band as humanly possible, forcing a couple attendees to get up and sit on the edge of the stage to avoid being crushed.
The band is set to release the second of five albums this year Murder of the Universe in June.
