Tim McMillan Band
Engine Three Seven

Sharaya launched their debut album The Road To with special guest Electric Mary at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne...
Sometimes the most wondrous experiences happen when they are least expected. I headed off to the Espy to see China Vagina, Twenty Two Hundred and Electric Mary not really anticipating more than a fun night watching some local bands play a measure of classic rock but what I (and the other punters) got was a gig that left us truly gobsmacked in the best way.
Another rainy, cool afternoon in Melbourne saw punters flock to AC/DC Lane to witness, among other things, the reformed Died Pretty some 25 years after their inception, (they had a six year break and reformed three years ago), and Jesse Hughes with his interesting girlfriend Tuesday Cross. A few would say that the line-up this year was somewhat hit and miss, however ticket sales would show that the crowd was almost as large as last year when Rose Tattoo were featured.
When the call came that Uncle Fester had fallen on very hard times due to battles with diabetes & kidney failure, it wasn’t long before his mates in the music business were rallying together to throw him a life line.
