The Grates have their sights firmly on the hot winds blowing summer our way. They hit the hot bitumen again in late October and come mid November are still going on their biggest national tour yet. Having ignited the main stage as the sun set over Splendour In The Grass, The Grates are at the peak of their game. Helmed by the enigmatic, sassy frontwoman Patience Hodgson, their sophisticated live show has as many twists and turns as the singer’s dance moves, unparalleled by any band in the country right now. From her stage-diving antics to provocative banter, you just never know what you’re going to get up close and personal. Coolangatta Hotel, Thursday, November 17.
