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!

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!

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
