Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
The Alabama Shakes have been really shaking things up in the industry with their debut album Boys & Girls. Now they will be making their Australian debut, hitting the road for the Big Day Out tour and will be playing a side show at the Forum as well.
