GIGS THIS WEEK 24 Jan 31st jan

Well… looks like Canberra is starting to fire up after a really slow summer break …. Also we’ve got news that the Monaro Tavern (250 Canberra Ave) outside the Short Stay Accomadation are about to start putting on shows…. If you’re keen just go in there and have a word to Stewie (he’s  pretty approachable bloke) and see if you can get something started!!! I just went in there earlier this arvo and they’re pretty open about what kind of bands performers they’re willing to take and happy to kick the bands a few dollars and free entry on the door to play.

THIS WEEKS GIGS 09 Jan – 14th Jan

Hello Lovelies!

Hope we all had a refreshing Christmas and New Years Break, but time to get back into it now with this weeks gig guide but first some rather troubling news…. The Phoenix Bar in Civic’s East Row is in a fair bit trouble… Seems they’ve spent a lot of money fixing up their premises and as a result have fallen behind on their rent. (It’s of course a lot more complex than that but best get the full story off their publicity team) They have a meeting at 5:30 tonight (which i know will be too short notice for many of you to do much about) but keep an eye on their facebook page and if there’s anything you can do to help, even if its just having a cheeky pint on your way home whist waiting in the interchange for your bus it will all help.

 

Other than that it seems to be a fairly quiet on week for canberra in the gig sense but i’ll have a more serious look to see if i can find anything worth mentioning gig wise …or feel free to send me something through the facebook page

SAT 13th FEB

Trollfest @ The basement – Featuring Trollfest (norway) Trolhaugen (brisbane) and Valhalore (Wollongong) An epic night of medieval themed Metal!  FB LINK
