Melbourne: The Drive-In announces Lime Cordiale, Baker Boy, Winston Surfshirt & more for first weeks of shows

Our entertainment industry has been one of the hardest hit by social distancing practices, but with restrictions loosening, it’s time to bounce back. Many of our favourite artists have responded with innovation: live-streaming their performances, actively engaging with their fans on Instagram, and even hosting online parties. However, nothing beats going to a gig, feeling the energy of the crowd and the excitement of a live performance.
