Spiderbait are definitely Australian rock’n’roll royalty. Formed in Finley, a small town in rural New South Wales, in 1991, over 25 years later, Janet, Kram and Whitt are still going strong, having just toured nationally celebrating the 20th anniversary of their seminal release Ivy and the Big Apples. But what are they doing at Wangaratta??

Well, for their appearance, Spiderbait will be joined by the Wangaratta Horns of Death, a mass horn section of musicians from the local region. One of the original Horns of Death, Adam Simmons will lead dozens of saxes and brass via directed improvising over some of Spiderbait’s, heaviest and blues-drenched instrumentals. There may be an old hit or two, but don’t come for them – come to see a legendary Australian band throw themselves off a cliff and see what happens!

Community workshops have been funded by Regional Arts Victoria.
