Ash-Grunwald-Scott-Owen-. jpgAsh Grunwald has been living in the Byron Shire for about five years, and between touring the world and the rest of Oz, he doesn’t get to spend too much time at home.

But tomorrow night Ash and mates Scotty Owen and Andy Strachan, who just happen to be the rhythm section of The Living End, will grace the stage at the Bruns for a good time of gargantuan proportions.

Last year Ash released Gargantua, a pretty epic recording with an awesome version of Crazy, the crowd-participatory Black and Blue and a rendition of Smokestack Lightning that has more grind in it than a pepper-mill in a five-star à la carte.

This gig is a rare opportunity for locals to see Ash on his home turf – a gig not to be missed.

Ash Grunwald featuring Scott Owen & Andy Strachan Hotel Brunswick – Thursday January 9 from 6pm.


Find this and many other great gigs in Echonetdaily’s North Coast Gig Guide.
