ROCKTOBER IS UPON US – ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?
DATE: Friday 7th October
VENUE: Cactus Room
ADDRESS: 614 High Street, Thornbury
The PENNY IKINGER BAND are heading North! They will be supported by Rhyece O’Neill and his band. Rhyece is a songwriter, poet & novelist born on Kurnai country in South Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. Currently he roams the Australian outback in a 79′ Valiant with his best mate the ‘Black Crow Kelpie’ Sonny.
O’Neill has played pubs, festivals and bars in the outback and cities all over Australia and Europe. His new album (Not) Stranded features a stunning cover of Penny Ikinger’s song “Sycamore Tree”:
“Rhyece’s version is just spine tingling! He brings out elements of the song that I didn’t know existed before – there’s a brutal angst in his delivery that is equally startling and compelling. I love it!”.
Rhyece’s album is out now on Howlin’ Dingo Records and can be purchased via Bandcamp https://rhyeceoneill.bandcamp.com/album/not-stranded-double-album
Super-X will open the show – they play an all-encompassing barrage of unhinged noise-punk with a dark edge of psychedelia.
10:30 -11:30pm Penny Ikinger Band
