Looking for something to do this weekend? Then come on over to the dark side of Rockabilly and come and see the Fireballs live! The last time I saw these guys their sound blew me away – almost literally!
Described by Beat Magazine as technicolour rock in the age of beige, the Fireballs are one of Australia’s foremost Psychobilly bands. Coming off the back of their Australia-wide tour supporting German heavyweights Mad Sin, the boys are now ready to rock their signature sound of Rockabilly roots and heavy speed rock headlining their own bill of shows across South East Queensland.
The last time I saw these guys was about a year ago at The Hi Fi in Brisbane and I distinctly remember at the time thinking the $50 ticket price was well worth the rockin good time I had. But holy toledos! Make the pilgrimage to Ipswich this Saturday night and wreck yourself stupid to their hard and fast sound for just $10!! They'll also be supported by The Big Rigs, 1.1.1, Crooked Face and Brissie boys The Dirty F Holes - all that for just 10 bucks!!!
Rolling Stone Magazine testifies that “…they will provide you with a religious epiphany that will overshadow anything this side of another Cramps album.”
So how can you say no!?
