[gigs] Grong Grong are back

Great news this week, Adelaide legends Grong Grong are playing a gig at the Metro soon, it’s on Saturday April 2nd. I saw them at the Metro on election night last year and it was absolutely amazing, really looking forward to seeing them again.

Here’s footage of them supporting the Dead Kennedys at Thebby Theatre in 1983!

A bit sooner is Ed Kuepper at the Gov tomorrow. I always recommend seeing Ed, but in particular it’s of interest to see him team up with Mark Dawson again, should be fantastic. Seeing these two play together regularly in the mid 90’s helped make me into the live music fan I am today!
