The Southern River Band at HGN on Saturday

Hotel Great Northern | Saturday | 8pm | Free

Coming into 2019 red hot, The Southern River Band have announced a national headline tour taking their jaw-dropping live show all over Australia – touching down at the Hotel Great Northern on their Gather No Moss tour this week! the activation and integration of life-force energy.

What’s the key to a kickarse live set for you guys?

Aw, you know, the usual, the will to thrive, let alone survive, and the responsibility that comes with giving anyone in the crowd the greatest night of their lives. That and an open bar.

What’s the most memorable gig of the last 12 months?

Phwoar, it’s impossible to pick one! Everywhere we go the crowds are absolutely unreal, and we take it upon ourselves to make sure every gig’s as good as, if not better than, the last!

How do you keep your energy at full tilt on stage? How does the audience change what kind of show you give?

There’s nothing better in the world than looking out into the crowd and seeing people smiling, having a ripper time and not worrying about anything. That right there can keep ya running at full bore indefinitely!

Who are the artists who have influenced you?

Van Gogh and Da Vinci mostly, but anyone from the late Bronze Age will always have a place in our hearts, and on our walls.

What is ahead for 2019?

We’ve got our sophomore album coming out, and a shitload of shows to play all around the country! All incremental steps towards universal domination, really.

What should we expect for your show at the Hotel Great Northern?

An adrenaline rush the likes of which you haven’t felt since the first time you fell in love; in short, the greatest night of your life.

Saturday at the Hotel Great Northern. 8pm. Free
