Scene Briefs

Marshall & the Fro have made quite a name for themselves over the last few years. Based in Lennox the trio bangs out a sort of roots music with a hard twist. It has a surf vibe (no wonder given the waves at Lennox) so it's not surprising that their songs feature on cult surf films like David Bradbury's Going Vertical. Marshall & the Fro will play the Northern in Byron this Saturday, January 28, from 9pm. $12 gets you in.

Night Fission is a band of talented young musos who'll display their penchant for deep grooves, blues, funk and fusion when they play By The River Restaurant in Ballina this Sunday, January 29, from 3pm. Playing a repertoire of originals as well as covers Jo Rigby (vocals), Walt Druce (guitar), Matt Day (guitar), Angus Graham (bass) and Carl George (drums) will get you doing the boogie in your seats for $5.

Hussy Hicks is a band that exists solely for their love of music. And they're good at it. Julz Parker and Leesa Gentz have racked up a remarkable list of festivals, venues and dedicated fans all over the world - all done with a couple of instruments and a passionate desire to share their songs. The Hicks will play the Northern in Byron (with Marshall & the Fro and Pacha Mamma) this Saturday, January 28, from 9pm. $12 entry.

You can check out the Borgs & Reidy Duo at the Richmond Hotel in Lismore this Saturday, January 28, from 9.30pm.
