Supporting Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls this April, Jon Snodgrass (Drag The River) brings his raucous live set to stages nationally, with a sense of humour and ability to instantly engage an audience. For The Love of Punk declared, “his voice has a breathiness that lingers in the background, allowing him to create really tender moments and then surprise you when he really pushes his tone and achieves a mellow yet strong timbre.”
Some great local additions including Lincoln Le Fevre, Isaac Graham, Dan Cribb and Luke Carlino round out the bills. Details below…
