DICEY RILEYS TO START NEW LOCAL BAND NIGHT
April 25, 2011 Leave a comment
Still bummed at Night Eats Day, Midnight Kamikaze and Soundbreak Thursdays being cancelled? Having a hard time getting your weekly local music fix? Looking for some cost-effective activities on a Friday night?
Have we got some news for you!
Starting Friday April 29th, Dicey Rileys Hotel will host ‘Live and Local,’ a weekly, FREE band night! With a focus on local acts, ‘Live and Local’ has been set up to help fill the void left by the sudden closure of several popular music venues in the Wollongong area.
Each Friday night, three acts will take to the stage at Diceys. ‘Live and Local’ are currently focusing on local acts, but with future plans to gradually begin hosting larger touring acts, it could very well become a new hub for music in Wollongong.
The launch of ‘Live and Local’ will see Wollongong’s prodigal daughter, Pom Pom, play only her second show in the area since moving to Melbourne in 2010. Also helping kick off the new venue in style will be Vanguard Party and Tommy M & The Mastersounds.
In coming weeks, Diceys will also host performances from Arc Icarus, The Bungalows, Sydney Girls Choir, Yardvark, Young Braves and – after a period of absence – Lumiere!
Stay tuned to Radar for more news on this exciting new venture!
