Hector RePlugged

Maybe you’ve heard of it or maybe you haven’t, but there have been a series of intimate free gigs at a backyard in Hector St, Geelong West – invite only. The Acoustic at Hector series have become a chance to celebrate local talent in a friendly, comfortable and inviting setting. The series have stopped for the year, but it’s set to get a whole lot bigger.

On December 8 at Barwon Club in Geelong there will be a fundraiser for the series, though it’s for something a little bit different. The team behind the event are hoping to create a screening event of the bands to take place early next year and a world class gig alongside it to get the bands on the international scene. It’s ambitious and that’s particularly why we love it. There’s a kickstarter campaign to donate to (you can do so here), otherwise head along to the event and do your bit. Performing on the night will be; Alister Turril & The Vagabond Brothers, The Run, Four Rules Charlie, Formiles, The Kite Machine and more.

There will also be one more Acoustic @ Hector gig this weekend, though you’ll have to find yourself an invite if you want to get in on it…
