The Hoodoo Gurus ‘Dig It Up has added Wollongong’s own Tumbleweed to next month’s line-up.
The Tumbleweed line-up will feature all five original members, the same that brought you ‘Sundial’, ‘Hang Around’ and ‘Stoned’ in the psychedelic 90s.
Geelong’s ‘Frowning Clouds’ will also perform for Dig It Up Sydney.
Melbourne will be treated to Rob Younger’s The New Christs, The Crusaders and Harry Howard (Crime & The City Solution, These Immortal Souls).
However, Dig It Up is not just about serious music business. There will also be funny business. Did you know that Hard-Ons bass player Ray Ahn is also a comedian? Ray doesn’t tell jokes, he tells stories and he will be storytelling in Sydney.
Bruce Griffith runs the Aberrant record label. There has to be a few gags in that job. He’ll be telling them for Dig It Up Sydney as well.
Melbourne will feature Melbourne’s own Dave O’Neil.
