The Amazing Woolloomooloosers and Shaggin Wagon

The Sando - 20TH MAY 2012


TWO..count 'em..TWO fine bands..ONE big night...First up, Shaggin Wagon, promising the aural equivalent of a glass of Ben Ean Moselle and a Jatz with Cheese as they power through the 70s' finest 3 minute blasts. THEN, The Amazing Woolloomooloosers, returning with a heady brew of bubblegum, pop, shlock and awe. SUNDAY 20TH MAY at the Sandringham Hotel 387 King St, Newtown, NSW 2042 DOORS OPEN 7PM! Only TEN BUCKS!. (That's basically two beers at most pubs. One beer at the marble bar or the establishment or other equally rubbish places!)

THe Nature Strip retuns to the Sando I-94 Bar

Sandringham Hotel, King St Newtown - 17 June 2012


Sunday, 17 June 2012 Although I am not performing at this gig, I highly recommend you check this show out! Three bands for ten bucks and the Nature Strip's third gig ever! Abduction by aliens. Clowns and tigers. A game involving sleep deprivation. A library of regret. Einsteinian space/time delusions. The Nature Strip’s perfect pop is obviously written directly from experience. The Nature Strip is Peter Marley & John Encarnacao. They'll be showing off their pop chops, aided and abetted by Jess Ciampa on drums and Matt Langley on guitars and keyboards. Opening act is Uncle Betty and the mutli-talented Terry Serio finishes off the night with his distinctive take on urban roots music. Doors at 7:00 pm, $10 entry
