Music and activism still matter to Peter Garrett; and he still matters to us.
During the Opening Ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, Peter Garrett and Midnight Oil sent a profound, political statement regarding the plight of indigenous Australians. Shortly afterwards, he embarked on a political career.
Sixteen years later, as the Brazilian sun rose on Rio de Janeiro, the gangly and enigmatic environmental warrior shed his business suit, buttoned up an indigenous print shirt and took to The Gov stage (6 August) in a manner that suggested that his foray into federal politics was just a very bad dream.

Hello Gov Lovers,
We’ve been reflecting today on the great vibe there is at The Gov week in and week out. It’s hard to put a finger on what makes it happen, but it’s got a lot to do with those of you who come and share in what we’re doing here.
Whether it’s seeing a touring band, grabbing a meal, or chatting in the front bar as the sound hillbilly fiddling floats through the air, the place wouldn’t be the same without our huge Gov family.
We’d love you to join in the fun on Friday, 5 August for our Horses Birthday front bar party from 5-7pm. Dress up in your best jockey outfit, bake a cake to enter into our competitions or just come along and have some fun.
We hope to see you there.

What happens when the best music venue in Adelaide teams up with a badass local brewing company that produces some sweet beer-y sips? An epic evening of beer-themed food, drinks, laughs, and good music!

Hi there Gov Lovers,
We’re not sure where this year has gone, but it’s passed us by in a blur of fun, noise and memories that will last a lifetime. This last week at The Gov has stuck the the plan, with a bunch of great new shows that are guaranteed to keep the good times rolling.
Don’t miss the chance to see The Jezabels as they return to The Gov to deal with the unfinished business of a show we’ve been hanging out to see. Tickets went on sale today and won’t hang around.
And, it’s all busy in the restaurant today as our chef Adam is working hard to prep for our Meet The Brewer collaboration with Big Shed Brewery tonight. There’s still a few dinner spaces available so book in with Deb on 8340 0744.

Hello Gov Lovers,
While mother nature has been doing her best to shake us to the core, here at The Gov we’ve been working hard with a huge week of announcements and there’s absolutely no sign of things slowing down. It’s all crazy, but it’s what we love - bringing great music to all of your ears.
