THIS WEEKS GIGS 28th NOV

Another week of gig going goodness coming at you this week we’ve got the return of locals Yoko Oh No  with new stoner doom out fit Lucifungus (love the name) playing at the Phoenix and a big name keyboardist Jordan Rudess of Dream Theatre playing the basement … Another fun one to check out will be the CBGB’s christmas party also at the basement and The Fuellers at the Old Canberra Inn… Also big ups to Smiths Alternate Bookshop for their steady run of shows, its a different format those guys do but it seems to be working with a couple of sold out shows on the horizon for them this week…. best get in early for their gigs from here on in!

On a sadder note, we’d like to say a “Rest in Peace” to local photographer “Pling PX” I can’t say i knew him personally but have seen his work around canberra for years dating back to the 90’s. He was a great photographer and certainly missed by a lot of you

Its been a cold week, but that’s OK… its heating up in your local band scene… but there’s still some great gigs on for your bad selves to check out …. My pick of the week is going to the cover bands this week with the IRON MAIDEN and QUEEN bands both taking my picks of the week on the (Thursday and Saturday nights respectively) They’re all well known local musicians putting on great shows that will definitely be worth checking out. Though Rockabilly night at the Old Canberra Inn is looking to be a treat as well! And Get this … something for the kids with a return to gigs at the Woden Youth Centre!!! Yeah!
