The Smith Street Band at The Magpie Club

Some of our favourite Melbourne-based rockers, The Smith Street Band, are returning to the awesomeness that is Canberra to perform at the Magpie Club on Sunday, February 15 because they’re rad.

Hot on the heels of their pretty much flawless 2014 LP, Throw Me in the River, the lads of Smith Street have already released a follow up EP rather cutely called Wipe That Shit Eating Grin Off Your Punchable Face.

It’s an album dedicated to a certain political leader whose name we shan’t mention here (but we’re pretty sure you know who we mean) and his government’s treatment of asylum seekers. It’s a sentiment we can all say we’ve probably felt at one point or another. Listen to it here.

Joining the boys on their tour across Australia will be Canadian indie punk band Pup, UK band Great Cynics and Apart From This.

We’re still surprised that The Smith Street Band hasn’t blown up a lot quicker but then again, maybe it’s a good thing because we might not get to see them at such great venues as Magpies.

The Smith Street Band will play at The Magpie Club on Sunday, February 15.
