And straight after on Sunday the 26th of November, it’s the Aints playing the Saints, at the Shed, Aussie World! On the 40th anniversary of the release of The Saints classic album Stranded, the show has founding member, guitarist and songwriter Ed Kuepper, revisiting the material performed by the ground-breaking Brisbane band the Saints over the seminal 1973 to 1978 years, alongside bassist Peter Oxley (Sunnyboys), drummer Paul Larson (The Celibate Rifles), keyboardist Alister Spence and a guest brass section. Aussie World is located at 73 Frizzo Rd Palmview, 1 km north of the Caloundra exit on the Bruce Hwy, or about 30 km from Maleny. We caught this show at the Tivoli – don’t miss it!
