Grant McLennan tribute gig 4 May 2014
It's that time of year when we celebrate the work of one of our best-loved songwriters ever, Grant McLennan. Our fourth annual Grant McLennan gig stars David Westlake again, because it wouldn't be the same without him (you should listen to his radio session backed by Robert Forster, Amanda Brown and Robert Vickers). And you should know that The Servants' excellent Small Time/Hey Hey We're The Manques! is now on vinyl.
We're equally delighted to welcome Heathers from Los Angeles, one of our favourite bands to debut last year. Of course they're Go-Betweens fans. Why would they not be. Here, listen to the rough and tumble jangle of their new single:
There's a very special guest joining us. Don't ask us who, because we're not telling. Last year Robert Forster dropped in, fought the jetlag and played a couple of songs. You remember:
We open our doors at 2pm. The gig's free and starts at 3pm. You should stick around afterwards and go to the Odd Box gig in the evening. Why not? It's a bank holiday the next day. Why? 4 ace bands, that's why:
