The Eastern in Ballarat continues its fine entry into the gig-hosting game with The Rye Catchers set for a few tunes and drinks on September 13. The rockin’ five-piece dials the volume knob up to 11 as they break out classic-styled rock infused with grunge sensibilities. They pride themselves on doing rock the hard way, their own way. They have made records for more money than they had in their pockets. They have played gigs for crowds waiting for someone else. They have supported bands they didn’t care for. All this was done for the purpose of playing music. For doing what they love. For doing what they were born to do. Fortunately for all, things are beginning to pay off.
