My wolf was invaded!

So… I am never really any good at writing these things, that’s why I never try. Last night I wanted to head down to the Irish for a night of live music supplied my Invader Wolf, Baltimore Gun Club, Something Something Explosion and a Toowoomba favourite, Sang-Froid. The last few years I have found myself changing when it comes to the music I listen to and the way I am when out in public. After a set or show of my own, i become somewhat of a recluse. Sober Shane hides from the rowdy drunks… except for a couple. When I got there I was greeted by the man who is Jacob Krog (Sang-Froid). This guy lights up a room without even knowing he is doing it. There will be a special in the coming months which is them. Just them. It will consist of an interview and the music will be dedicated to them.

So… let’s get into the part where the first band takes the stage… Invader Wolf. I am not too sure how I met Drew or if I even really had a first meeting with him but he is surely one of my favourite people in this town. The band took the stage and you could see the nerves on their face. The last outing I saw them at was still etched in my mind so I had some hopes this show was better… Boy was I right.

I say this all the time but I mean it. In the words of Molly Meldrum… “Do yourselves a favour!” and catch them at a live show soon. They are melodic, they are funky, they are rockin’. Their style of writing is hard to put your hand on but the music definitely speaks to you. The bastards just need to put out some more music for us to listen to. Once the music started the crowd just grew. I was actually really happy to see that many people out supporting live music. It was the kind of show that you will talk about 10 years from now and say “I remember the first time I saw Invader Wolf… It was at the Irish in Toowoomba”. Now I don’t have the best quality photo gear but I took a few photos and videos of the night. Check them out and give them a like on there social media RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!!!

Looking for artists 

Good evening all,  how are we? 

So the first show now is a couple of days old.  Pretty happy that the podcast has had over 50 views already.  I’m currently planning the next show and I would love to hear from any solo or duo acts that play original songs.  Time to get back to the whole reason I started Toowoomba music scene…  To help promote live, local and original artists.  I have been contacted by a heavier style band and in the boot too distant future,  will be putting on a home and heavy show.  So any artists of any genre,  hit me up.  I’m keen to hear everything this town has to offer. 

Speak soon, 
From the desk of Shane Finney.
