Brace yourself for an Australiana folkpunk hoedown!
Three big bands on a Sunday arvo. Rock up and let the amber flow...
The Dead Maggies are a folkpunk/cowpunk/convictpunk band from Hobart.
They perform tragic tales of Tasmanian folklore, set to upbeat, toe tapping, fast dancing tunes.
In less than a year they've build a solid following in Tasmania. In this time they've supported; The Real Mckenzies, The Barons of Tang, The Crooked Fiddle Band and The Go Set to name just a few. They've had several songs played on Triple J, and scored feature album on both Edge Radio and ABC Local Radio Tasmania.
So now as the stonefruit softens and falls from the limbs to rot on the ground, its time for them to spread their wings and try for new cities.
This first trip out of Tasmania sees The Dead Maggies playing with bands that like them. Bands such as; The Crooked Fiddle Band, Handsome Young Strangers, Lime & Steel and The Australian Beefweek Show, at gigs around Sydney, Canberra, Newcastle and Port Macquarie throughout April.
