Sunburnt country madness

Those jackeroos of country rock and roll, The Re-Mains, are riding into town this weekend to hunt down and capture the outlaw spirit of 4/4 rock.

The North Coast is in for a jeans-wearin, boot-scuffin weekend of country rock and roll.

The Re-Mains lead the charge on Friday night as they canter into the Nimbin Hotel for a vicious onslaught of banjo-propelled mayhem. Mick Daley and the lads have earned a reputation as country rocks pin-up poster posse. They have toured this wide, beer-stained country from Darwin to Port Fairy with their original songs and hellish playing.

This Saturday night, February 24, theyre coralling Christian Pyle and Sal Yates of local outfit The Spills into supporting them at the Winsome Hotel in Lismore, after which The Re-Mains will release their usual pedal steel-fuelled barrages of maximum country rock and roll.

Tickets are a mere $10 at the door.

Then this Sunday night, February 25, the queen of western swing, Glenys Rae Virus, is leading an all-star quartet on stage at the Tyalgum Hotel for Big Sunday Tyalgums answer to summer festival madness.

Shell be followed onstage by the mighty Den Hanrahan, a fast-pickin shearer from Bathurst with a stentorian set of lungs and a killer band.

With The Re-Mains administering the coup de grace, Tyalgum will never be the same again.

Bring the kids. Theres a big fenced pool, picnic grounds and the best pub food in Tyalgum.
