After-Race Party

Author: Unknown

Trackside, Thursday to Sunday.

It’s not just for race fans, y’know. When the cars are put to bed for the night at the Clipsal Adelaide 500 this week, the stage will be rocked by some of Australia’s finest.

And an extra concert has been added this year, meaning there are now four nights of partying to be had.

It all kicks off tonight when Spiderbait and 28 Days get the party started.

Spiderbait, of course, is going through what has been dubbed its renaissance, after scoring its first No 1 single last year with Black Betty. 28 Days, on the other hand, is the latest big name to go independent, and is having plenty of fun doing things their own way.

Tomorrow night it’s the double Oz bill of the year, with The Living End joined by Magic Dirt. The Living End is, bar none, the best live band in the country, and when you team it with the melodic rock of Magic Dirt, its a very special night. The Dirt, by the way, will also play at Mannum’s Pretoria Hotel on Saturday night.

Saturday night trackside is one for the country fans, with Lee Kernaghan appearing with his Akubra, joined by the more jazz.blues sounds of the Black Sorrows.

Then on Sunday, wrapping it all up and going out with a bang, are the Hoodoo Gurus and the Master’s Apprentices. Did someone say Australian classics? Mass singalongs?

It’s sure to be a massive week of racing and rock, so get into it.
