Everyone has a band that they wish they could see live. But due to the cost or feasibility of international travel, they’ve been relegated to “it would be rad to see them, but it’s probably never going to happen.”

It is not that often that we get the chance to see a cult Canadian country-rock band in Australia, so when they arrange a couple of random sideshows after their Winton Way Out West appearance, it seemed sensible to get to see one of them at least – The Road Hammers were over here a few years ago for CMC Rocks and left a pretty hot reputation behind.
