Cool fun loud Australian rock music at the UFO Factory tonight


We all know that a lot of the best new rock-based music in the last handful of years has come from Australia.

THIS SHOW IS TONIGHT. I KNOW IT'S THE TUESDAY AFTER A BIG WEEKEND AND ALL BUT I THINK YOU SHOULD COME CHECK THESE GUYS OUT!!!
