Description

Saturday June 29th
The Smokes live at Cherry

Greatest Hits show!

Alrighty so word is out that we’ve swung the doors back open down AC/DC Lane; yeah we did celebrate the end of our time amongst the 101 Collins suits but some things out of our control have stalled our move so we’re back, crankin' amps, amongst the restaurants again as things should be!

On June 29th, we have possibly the world’s greatest The Strokes tribute band, The Smokes, return to the Cherry stage to celebrate the bands legendary catalogue!

The first two albums are truly some of the greatest studio works to emerge in the indie rock revival of the last twenty years. Their debut, Is This It, was instantly a classic that shaped wardrobe choices and soundtracked indie-disco dancefloors everywhere. The Nike air of indie rock returned triumphantly with an instant classic in Room on Fire! They didn’t break out into stadium rock and we’re all the more thankful for it. An album that again was full of indie-disco dancefloor fillers as they posed as a Cars cover band (cover band you say?) on lead single 12:51, the throbbing bass riding hurricane Reptilia and boozy last drinks call out of The End Has No End.

The first two albums are corkers, but let’s not forget the first hint of the following Third Impressions of Earth in “Juicebox” was such a tune! And “Heart in a Cage” and “You Only Live Once” are fair corkers also! Maybe you’ll hear some tracks from later albums but bet ya bottom dollar the best from those first three records are gettin’ a go live.

So dust off that double denim, pull out your favourite vintage dress and experience the of the 2000's indie-rock explosion

Every time they’ve played it’s sold out in advance so we recommend buying a ticket ASAP to witness the saviours of rock ’n’ roll live! Kinda witness.
