Bluesfest Sideshow and More!

Hello Gov Lovers,
Who needs mad March when you’ve got Outrageous October? The Gov has been going overboard with amazing shows this month.
On Thursday and Friday don’t fight it, come on get excited, for two huge nights with Ball Park Music.
Saturday morning the Gov’s crew will be at Parliament House at 11am to support the call to keep SA Nuclear Free, and in the evening we party with Aussie hip-hop legend Drapht with a bag of new rhymes fresh from his album Seven Mirrors.
And on Sunday, it’s Club Cool, a socially inclusive event for people with disabilities and their friends. It kicks off at 11am with entry by gold coin donation.
Next week kicks off with outlaw cowboy Kinky Friedman on Tuesday night. His show was re-scheduled from last week as Melbourne airport shut down due to storms and Kinky couldn’t get to SA.
As the icing on the cake of an already great week, The Gov has been nominated for Venue of the Year in the National Live Music Awards. We’ve loved seeing fellow nominees Bad // Dreems, Dusty Lee, The Grenadiers, Horror My Friend, West Thebarton Brothel Party and Ollie English here at The Gov, not to mention many of the nominees from other states. The fantastic list of nominees both in SA and across Australia reflects the high quality of live music in this country. Congratulations to everyone who made the grade.
