SideTracked Fiasco, Byron Brewery, Saturday

So you’re an independent band and you just completed a 17-show tour that saw you playing shows in QLD, VIC, SA, ACT, and NSW. What do you do next?

Why, you do it all again of course. That is exactly what Sydney-based funkcore band The SideTracked Fiasco are doing.

The SideTracked Fiasco’s sound has been compared to the likes of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Faith No More, System of a Down and Mammal to name a few. The music contains the rhythm and feel found in funk and early hip-hop, the urgency and speed of punk, and the structuring and experimentation of progressive rock, and has been described as having ‘enough bass to melt your face off’.

They play the Byron Brewery on Saturday from 6pm.
