This all-day party blends live music and Jack Daniel's better than AC/DC ever could.
Ah, Cherry Bar. Home to sticky floors and leopard fur. Hallowed ground of headbangers. Tucked away down AC/DC Lane, the iconic venue is the ultimate dive bar in today’s age of overlit, oversanitised rock venues. Every not-so-self-respecting local has a story tell about the night they popped their Cherry.
This Sunday the bar's 7th annual street festival, CherryRock013, will be co-headlined by two gloriously disgraceful stoner rock bands — recently reformed Californian legends UNIDA and Swedish fuzz rock sensations Truckfighters. They’ll be joined by King Parrot, Barbarion, Matt Sonic & the High Times, The Murlocs, Mammoth, Gay Paris, Surefire Midnights, The Workinghorse Irons, Drunk Mums, Little Bastard and Battle Axe Howlers, plus a swag more to be announced.
Cherry festivals are notoriously epic days, when the makeshift curtains come down over the graffiti laden laneway, barely concealing a writhing sea of black tees, skinny jeans and badass rockers. Expect an all-day party that blends live music and Jack Daniel's better than AC/DC ever could.
