Illawarra punks Sic Parvis Magna are making the trip up from Picton Road to head up an evening of short, fast and loud music at Gang Gang on Saturday alongside Highland Light and A Commoner’s Revolt. Pub rock legends Choirboys are also in town this week, celebrating their more than 40-year career at The Basement on Thursday.
