GIGS THIS WEEK 30th AUG

 

Its looking a bit quiet this week on the gig front but I’m sure its heating up for a bit summer with two of our venues, The Basement and Smiths Alternate Bookshop both undergoing recent refurbishments or extensions, The Smiths refurb will be unvielled Saturday and I’ve seen the Basements refurb and it adds a bit of space and makes the place look a whole lot bigger (200 or people I believe) anyway groovers, have a great week and try to get out and check out some tunes somewhere!

As another weekend draws near its time for another gig listing! While we don’t have the huge names we’ve seen pass through Canberra in the last few weeks (Unless you were lucky enough to score tickets to the sold out Pete Murray show at The Basement) , we’ve got some lower key shows that are looking pretty good like long time Canberra musician Fred Smith appearing at Smiths Alternate Bookshop with Jen Lush and the Black Metal (if you’re into that sort of thing)  gig at the Basement looking like they’re going to both be real treats!
