Australia’s Leader Goes to Indie Rock Gig, Chugs a Beer, Gets Cheers

From a Washington Post story by Frances Vinall headlined “Australia’s leader goes to indie rock gig, chugs a beer, gets cheers”:

MELBOURNE, Australia — Sitting in the crowd, the guy in a dark shirt chugged a beer as he watched an alternative-rock band perform in his hometown.

But this wasn’t any ordinary concertgoer — it was Australia’s prime minister, Anthony Albanese.

Albo, as he is known here, was spotted in the seated section of Sydney’s Enmore Theater, a venue in his electorate where the band Gang of Youths performed on Monday night. He was with his partner, Jodie Haydon, and Australia’s employment and workplace relations minister, Tony Burke.
