Gun Barrel Straights + Joe Conroy Band + Shards on the Rocks

The Gun Barrel Straights are a Melbourne song-and-dance band based in the inner-North. The band consists of Brian (drums), Chris (vocals), Jim (bass), Matt (banjolin), Nic (Guitar, vocals) and Spencer (guitar). The band’s influence list is long and varied but their sound is a bit of a mix between The Pogues and The Rolling Stones via Paul Kelly. They love the footy, a pint, and talking all kinds of absolute shite.  You can usually find them propping up the bar of one of two hotels, but tonight they’ll be getting the bar jumping at The Yarra!
Joe Conroy, and his big, dirty, but sometimes delicate voice, has returned to Melbourne with an arsenal of new tunes.
After spending the last year writing and performing his rare brew of blues, folk and soul on the north coast of NSW, he is now thrilling audiences Melbourne-wide. Expect an intimate, poignant, raw, regret-fuelled performance from this award winning songwriter.
If you aren’t convinced yet it’s also Shardi’s birthday and it’s going to be one hell of a party! Music from 8.30pm
