All the way from generic Europe, it’s the masters of rock Cell Block 69 (pictured), stepping out of a John Hughes movie for the entertainment of the good folk of CBR! They are playing two shows this weekend, the first one having sold out in the blink of an eye (as is usually the case with Cell Block 69’s infrequent but highly popular shows). So, if you don’t want to miss it there are still tickets available for this Saturday at The Basement from 8 pm, with opening act Endrey.

On Friday comedy-folk duo Sparrow-Folk celebrate a Very Nestie Xmas over at Smith’s Alternative, while Novocastrian alt-country songwriter Ben Leece will be at Transit Bar from 7 pm with Azim Zain and Swoon Queen. Over at The Phoenix, Agency Dub will be putting on a very dubby Xmas from 9 pm, while Amnesty International Australia will be putting on a fundraising effort for refugees, featuring Canberra Brass, Latin Collective, Zackerbilks and Johnny Huckle at Smith’s.

Saturday will see Victorian dixielanders The Old Married Couple putting on a Very Vaudeville Christmas at Smith’s from 7:30 pm, while Charlotte & The Harlots will be putting on a Christmas special from 7:30 pm at The Phoenix with Babe Fiasco, The Narcissists and Mach 81. There is plenty on to keep your dancing shoes happy in the lead-up to Christmas; check out the guide below and Merry Christmas!!
