Southern Australia’s own King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard released a full-show video of their performance at New Belgium Brewing Company in Asheville, NC this week.
Unlike a typical show video, however, the Melbourne sextet didn’t have an official film crew on hand to capture the moment. Instead, the band pulled cellphone clips from dozens of fans in the crowd and edited them together with official soundboard audio.

The 17-song set began with “Evil Star” before two Infest The Rats’ Nest tracks, “Self-Immolate” and “Venusian 1”, followed by a couple of Murder of the Universe songs, “Alter Me III” and “Altered Beast IV”. After “People-Vultures”, “This Thing”, and “Beginner’s Luck”, King Gizzard brought the show to its midpoint with an upbeat “Rattlesnake”, followed by the trancey and danceable “Cyboogie”.
The fan shot clips, as well as periods of black screen when presumably nobody filmed, continued as the band flowed into “Loyalty”, then “Horology” and “Boogieman Sam”. “Plastic Boogie”, “Mars for the Rich”, and “Hell” then led to the show closers “The Lord of Lightning” and “The Bitter Boogie”. With songs spanning the band’s entire discography, the 90-minute performance kept fans engaged from beginning to end.
