Think of a great Aussie band or musician. Actually, think of several; it's impossible to limit yourself to one. Past and present, groups and solo artists, rock chicks and working class men — they're all accounted for in what proves a mighty big list. It's more than likely that whoever popped into your head is accounted for at The Triffid's Aussie music extravaganza.
From 7.30pm on April 21, the Newstead venue will open its stage to Wide Open Road: A Celebration of Australian Music, which is exactly what it sounds like. A heap of Aussie acts will belt out tunes by a heap of Aussie greats. With ANZAC Day coming up, it couldn't be more appropriate.
Expect tracks by ACDC, INXS, Midnight Oil, Divinyls, You Am I, The Easybeats, Hoodoo Gurus, The Saints, The Warumpi Band, Radio Birdman, The Triffids, Skyhooks, Wiggles, Celibate Rifles, Ed Kuepper, The Grates, The Screaming Tribesman and more. Expect Band of Frequencies, PC & The Biffs, Sabrina Lawrie, Suburbiasuburbia and WHALEHOUSE to do them justice. And, expect to revel in the sounds of this country of ours for one rockin' night.
