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.
This Collingwood venue has had a tumultuous time of it - a long fight against closure ended with it closing its doors in January (despite a massive community rally), only to triumphantly reopen as licensing laws in Melbourne were reviewed. It's a legendary training ground for new bands and every significant Australian band has trod its stage at one time or another.
