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!

***Also if you’ve got something you want to push contact me on facebook and we can chat about some budget conscious promo ideas 😉

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.
