They’re seasoned performers, having played with the likes of Cold Chisel, Birds of Tokyo, Jebediah, Gyroscope, Wolfmother, Grinspoon and Amyl & The Sniffers.

Their sound is “an assault on all of the senses in both a physical and mental capacity,” says Southern River Band themselves, as we were told in 2018. “Like (insert your favourite sporting team here) winning the big one. As heartwarming as a smile from your first born child. Like standing in front of a big ol Boeing 747 firing up, but with guitars and shit.”

Furthermore, according to them, their live show is “a real fucking good time. A sense of familiarity and belonging. You look like you could use a real fucking good night out. Here! Have one on us, your mates, The Southern River Band, BYO dancing shoes, smiles provided on entry. Sorry about that ringing in the ears, don’t worry though, you’ll get used to it.”

Their show at the Brunswick Ballroom is the last of a mini tour for the band, having performed in Fremantle, Collingwood and Sydney this week.

They’re playing at the Brunswick Ballroom on May 21. Grab your tickets while they’re available as they won’t last long by heading here.
