Fallen Broken Street, in conjunction with Hometown Artist Management, bring you The End of Year Showdown featuring co-headliners Andy Golledge Band and DJ UONE with support from Luke Morris & The Heavy Hitters, Karl S Williams Band, and Gimmy & The Spring Rollers at The Northern Hotel, Byron Bay.
Andy Golledge Band arrive in Byron Bay on the back of their mirrorball ponies with their debut album Strength of a Queen announced as ABC country album of the week, an ARIA nominee for best country album and best alt country album for the upcoming golden guitar awards at the TCMF 2023.
Andy Golledge is a livewire and a gentle soul trapped in a fisherman’s body. He looks like your old man, back in the day; he sounds like Neil Young but with the energy of Springsteen, and has a vulnerability all of his own. His last gig sold out an extended capacity Eltham Hotel, so you will not be disappointed.
Equal billing at the Showdown is Melbourne DJ UONE who brings his Relaxo Rancho desert dwelling electro beats to the home of rock ’n’ roll in Byron Bay. Drawing on Morricone influenced deep house, ’60s psychedelia fused with tribal rhythms, dusty trooper DJ UONE takes you on your very own spaghetti western journey. UONE will keep your feet moving between the bands and then non-stop from midnight to 2am.
Luke Morris has traded in his solo indie folk musings to form Aussicana outfit Luke Morris & The Heavy Hitters; a collaboration with four members from Ocean Alley, who have been holed up in the Byron Bay Hinterland laying down tracks for their debut album Long Desert Highways.
Karl’s Williams’ music is steeped in the swamp water of the cane country of Northern NSW, the landscape of his childhood. His songs are the distillation of life, love and the human condition; they are timely and deeply rooted in tradition, yet ever conversant with the present.
Also on the bill is Gimmy & The Spring Rollers – Gimmy, a solo female artist, brings a diverse flavour to the table; with notes of folk, indie-rock and sways of garage. With her heavily lyrical songwriting and vibrato vocals, Gimmy delivers a raw authentic sound that captivates crowds with her expressive stage performance.
A showdown to remember, get yourself to the Northern on Friday, 23 December from 8pm.
