Last night was the first in the six-event series of Northern Exposure, a performer contest  that will be held from September until the final on December 13 at the Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay.

Each week three constants will expose themselves to the judges and the punters in the front bar of the Northern with semifinals to be held before the final night.

In the first round Dane Tucquet, Gregory Pimm and Lou Bradley battled it out for a chance to go through to the next round. Playing a mixture of originals and covers, each of the three made a great impression.
