What we're about

If you're interested in seeing live music all over Canberra, this is the group for you. I started this group because, while I might not have made it as a rock star (got as far as ACT air guitar champion....seriously...) I do still enjoy seeing a good gig, often while dwelling on what might/should have been in my younger years. Tragic? perhaps. Nevertheless I look forward to your company in front of a stack of Marshall amps sometime soon (ear plugs in of course). And of course, thanks very much for joining up!

We have a Facebook group page here you can join where photos and videos from gigs are posted:


While gigs will be rock/indie-centric, will aim to include some blues/folky options as well.
