Andy Golledge

Sunday 31 January, 12pm

Anyone who says Sydney’s wild live music pub scene is dead has never been swept up in the joyful mania of an Andy Golledge show. The Tamworth native's tracks span from foot stompin’ party starters to the heartachingly fragile. 'Cause that’s life, isn’t it? They're painfully honest, instantly relatable, and catchy as all hell. Think Dad Rock meets alt-country – with a massive injection of heart.
