December 2007

If it doesn't rain, it pours!

Fancy a bit of foot-stompin' and gig-goin' in between the credit card-abusin' and gift-wrappin'?

Tickets are reduced for a short time only as part of the East Brunswick Club's christmas sale.  If you want to come along then make sure you get a ticket before Dec 18th... they are $35 until the 18th and go back up to $44 after that.

Built To Spill, the enigmatic US based guitar-led quintet, make their Australian debut this summer as special guests of the Falls Festival. The band has carved out a niche for themselves via the release of six acclaimed studio albums (including their latest You In Reverse) and one soaring live album. They’ve been described as ‘melding Neil Young with Dinosaur Jr and Television-esque guitar wig-outs and melodic pop gems.
