Live Music in the Byron Shire for the week Beginning 11 December 2019

Tijuana Cartel at the Mullumbimby Ex Services on Friday December 20

Tijuana Cartel

Mullumbimby Ex-Services | Friday 20 December  |  $30

Following on from a mammoth 2019 with three months of sold-out Australian winter touring, and a successive European tour, Electro-Roots legends, Tijuana Cartel return to Australia for a few very special headline shows.

Put simply, there isn’t another band doing what they do. Having spent the last decade mixing influences that haven’t been fused in the past, their penchant is for Middle Eastern scales, beats that get a floor moving and a general psychedelic approach in song structure and ethos. Not married to one genre or another, they happily change direction in search of new flavours and inspiration whenever the moment takes them there.

They play the Mullumbimby Ex-Services on Friday 20 December.

Nat Cole Tribute at the Mullum Ex Services on Saturday

Mullumbimby Ex-Services  |  Saturday, 14 Dec  |  7.30pm  |  $20

To celebrate Nat King Cole’s 100th Birthday, Paris Cat presents The Dorian Mode Trio. Since his early teens, Dorian Mode spent his pocket money on Nat King Cole records, imitating Nat’s dazzling piano and vocal stylings. A lifelong fan, Dorian has meticulously researched Nat’s catalogue to choose iconic original trio arrangements to transcribe and weave into his show about Nat Cole’s fascinating life.

The Dorian Mode Trio play Saturday, 14 Dec at the Mullum Ex-Services at 7.30pm.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
