Hitting the highway
Local rock band Smart Artists have changed their name to Highway Blonde. Apparently one of the guys in the band was picked standing up by the side of the Pacific Highway near Byron Bay by Paris Hilton and whisked away to a private party somewhere in the hills...
Apart from associating with vacuous tarts, the boys have been promoting their new album Winning Ways in the US and are looking forward to coming back to Lismore to play at Tommys on Saturday night.
To cap off a sensational year for the band, the video for their song Inside Moves was awarded the 2009 Pacific Film and Television Video Award in the Independent Category and the song came eighth in the Australian Songwriting Awards.
So for a bit of guitar driven rock, stick your thumb out on the highway and head to Tommys.
