This weeks gigs Sept 19th!!!

 

Another batch of freshly cooked gigs coming at you this week… And I have to say its a pretty big batch too! This might be the longest gig listing I’ve ever had to do for this page which means there’s a lot of cool gigs on for you people this week … So do yourself a favour and see if you can get yourself out to something this week! You Deserve it! There’s some great stuff on including Metal United down Under which is a simultaneous metal event run across multiple venues around the country (and overseas now, I understand) featuring some great locals and UK punk legends Booze and Glory down at the transit bar both on a Saturday night unfortunately … It’s a shame I can’t afford to get myself cloned. Also if you read this in time and your in the mood for something a little groovier Rumshack (pictured Above) are playing down the Phoenix tonight and they are always great!

This weeks Gigs! Sept 13th \m/

Well another week of live music goodness draws upon us we’ve got some pretty cool local level gigs coming up for you guys and gals to check out… and on other news we’ve managed to bag our first sponsor for this little blog! Its Steve’s Guitar Services (SC GUITAR SERVICES  in the sidebar…) located out at Queanbeyan. I can vouch for this guy as well as he’s fixed up a couple of my guitars and they basically play better than they ever have before!  Give him a call!
