Let's be honest, it's cold and it can be hard to find the motivation to go out. Unfortunately, due to this a lot of local music venues are doing it tougher than ever, with some even facing closure.
Clowns started their career in the nutrient rich soils of Melbourne's local music venues, which over time has spawned four critically albums containing music that has collectively reached the ears of millions; whether it be playing live at the world's biggest heavy music festivals in Europe, charting in the NACC American College Radio Charts or pissing off that grumpy old man next door while they play in your mates living room at a 2am house party. These institutions have provided an environment that has allowed Clowns (and many other artists) career to flourish, but unfortunately a harsh winter like this could be enough to stunt future yields for good… but we have a plan!
Introducing: Keepin' The Dive Alive!
In an attempt to revitalise some Melbourne's world class local venues, Clowns are giving back to the community that has supported them for so long by throwing five unique gigs at five different small venues. All you've got to do is rock up to a show and trade some of your cash for a few drinks of your choice at the bar.
Have a favourite Clowns record? Well, they're playing it in full!
Want to help, but a bit skint for cash? That's cool, there's a free entry gig!
Under 18 years old? No stress, there's an all ages event too!
Too cold? Trust, it won't be front and centre of the stage.
Together, we can get through this! Tix from www.clowns.oztix.com.au
