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.
