Rifles to rock Mazstock
One of the stalwarts of Australian rock, The Celibate Rifles, have been added to the bill of Mazstock 2010.
Once described by Rolling Stone writer David Fricke as “the greatest live band in the world”, The Rifles have been cranking it out to beer and testosterone fuelled crowds for nearly 30 years.
They will be joining fellow rock ’n’ roll survivors The New Christs on the bill. Fronted by legendary Radio Birdman singer Rob Younger, The New Christs formed in 1984 when Younger was offered the support spot for Iggy Pop’s Australian tour. Over the years they have had a roll call of players that reads like a who’s who of the independent music scene.
With 14 other bands thrashing it out on two stages, Mazstock promises to be a shot of pure adrenaline into the arm of Lismore’s live music scene.
It’s all happening at The Italo Club on Saturday May 22 with the first band on stage at 4pm. Tickets are $22 pre-sale from Music Bizarre or $25 at the door.
