$1 pots + New Song at Laundry this Thursday
It's $1 pot (& $3 basics) night again at Laundry (55 Johnston St, Fitzroy). This Thursday's lineup features progressive funk/jazz rockers Artinem
and the very sweet pop rock power of The Wellingtons
, who recently packed The Rob Roy Hotel to absolute capacity for the launch of their impressive debut album "Keeping Up With...". We enjoyed both bands' CDs so it's a real treat to have them on the bill with us! As an added bonus The SUNS will be debuting a brand new song for their loyal SUNRockers!
