Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music.

His career that has taken in everything from the ground breaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug, to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with The Dark Horses, from the hard edged pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon’s, to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea.

Tex has heralded the emergence of an entirely original yet archetypically Australian sound.

In the early 90s Perkins joined forces with the legendary Don Walker, Cold Chisel’s pianist and master songwriter, and Charlie Owen, previously Australia’s best kept musical secret, for the unforgettable Tex, Don & Charlie.

Teaming up with Tex for an intimate local show will be none other than his good friend Charlie Owen. This is a night not to be missed.

Thursday, April 16 2015 – Upstairs at the Ballina RSL Club

Doors open 7.45pm, show starts 8.30pm
