grazza fest

Sydney’s underground music scene recently lost a great mate, gig buddy, champion of great music and all round top bloke, Graham Bowditch, of the Stamp Out Disco record label.

Member of inner-west punk powerhouse Hellebores and renowned artist, Glenno Smith, and Evil Tone Records  have arranged  a six-band memorial show at The Great Club in Marrickville on January 26 to celebrate the the life of “Grazza”.

The line-up will be The Hard-Ons, The Pink Fits, 1977 punk legends ROCKS, Brisbane pop champions Glycereens, Hellebores and killer riffmeister duo The Strike Outs. The first band is on at 5pm.

The Australia Day date is significsnt because it was traditionally when Grazza used to host a barbecue. Stamp Out Disco released the debut single for The Pink Fits and the first album for Hellebores, and was responsible for luring The Glycereens for their first visit to Sydney.  

Between bands, DJ Crazy Horse and DJ MarekU will be spinning low brow Grazza-approved rock ‘n’ roll. All proceeds from the night will go directly to the Bowditch family.Tickets are here.
