Triple J present the Heavy Weight Kings of Rock tour featuring Pacifier, Superheist and Brace, with two gigs at the Great Northern next Thursday, November 21 and the following Monday, November 25.
Pacifier (formerly known as Shihad) play nothing but the most heavy, intense rock, which has scored them gigs supporting acts like Faith no More and Pantera during Australian tours.
The band have being getting high rotation airplay since the release of their single Everything, which features in the new movie Swim Fan, directed by Aussie John Polson. The movie recently debuted at number one at the USA box office, and since then the band has been run off their feet with tours and promotional gigs.
If you're looking for a good mosh these guys certainly deliver, and with Superheist and Brace as supports it's bound to be a hardcore rock fest.
Both gigs start at 9pm, and tickets are $15 from the ABC Shop in Ballina and Music Bizarre in Lismore.
Phil's Sawtell and Byron Bay gigs
Sawtell RSL was a great start to the tour.The interior was modelled after the 'Love Boat' apparently.It was an all ages gig and instead of having the bar upstairss and the under 18's downstairss,it was the other way around.The under 18's were going sick,more than the drinker's ,but they were about 20 metre's down the room from us.But it was cool,like an AD/DC video.I managed to hand my microphone to the guy in the wheelchair next to me on the side of the stage,to sing the last chorus of 'My mind's sedate'.He was even louder than me! The next night it was Byron Bay.A friend of our's who cook's at 'The blue room' in Ballina treated us to a free feed.Apparently Jon was still digesting when we got on stage,but that didn't stop him from jumping into the crowd at the start of the second song.There were a few technical difficulties but that just made the gig more frantic and punky.It felt good when I smashed my microphone into the stage at the end.Considering we were in the crusty/hippy capital of Australia it was extra funny when Jonny told a joke he heard about meat eating."If god didn't want us to eat meat,then why did he make animal's out of meat?"Apparently a couple of disgusted tree's were seen leaving the venue.But don't get me wrong ,I don't like the idea of fuzzy animal's dying needlessly,but these day's most of the time I just can't resist.You know when you're smashed after a show and the only thing hot to eat at the gas station is a mince pie.
