Everyone knows there ain’t no party like an Australia Day party. And this year, it’s all about stepping away from the Barbie and letting someone else bring the long weekend vibes… and that my friends is none other than our mates at Lambys.
Knowing that Cold Chisel are one of this country’s most revered rock outfits – crème de la crème of classic pub rock some might say – with a history that spans forty years and a catalogue of songs and albums that have become part of the nation’s psyche, the legends at Lambys have decided to throw a rockin’ Cold Chisel inspired Australia Day party where we’ll be singing like a Choir Girl and drinking cheap wine all night long.
Coined All the Cheap Wine, this party will be headline by none other than Flame Trees – the ultimate Cold Chisel tribute act.
Known also as the Cold Chisel/Jimmy Barnes show, Flame Trees compromises of members from Scat (a successful cover band from Melbourne) alongside the original Flame Trees to present the “second generation” of Flame Trees and put on a pure representation of the #1 hits of Cold Chisel and Jimmy Barnes.
Most of you would agree that there’s nothing more Australian than hot sun, warm waves, sausages sizzling on the barbecue, and a playlist fuelled with Cold Chisel classics like ‘Khe Sanh’, ‘Flame Trees’, ‘Bow River’, ‘My Baby’, ‘Cheap Wine’, ‘Saturday Night’ and ‘You Got Nothing I Want’.
With “The last plane out of Sydney’s almost gone” becoming an iconic lyric tattooed on the brains of a generation of Aussie rock fans, these are the songs tracks that have become the soundtrack to our summer, year after year.
Alongside all the Barnsey tunes, Abe Anderson will be doing his thing in the Back Bar and Liam Blackwell will be on the decks for the night.
Prepare your singing voices, this is going to be helluva Lambys Sunday sesh.
It all kicks off on Sunday, January 26. Doors at 9pm & free entry before 10pm.
This is a strictly 18+ event.
