As far back as I can remember...

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster”
Remember that quote from Goodfellas?

Well, that is how I feel about live music at the Cow…

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to have original live music at the Cow. We have only had two gigs at the Cow so far, but they have been an absolute blast.
Friday night saw us host a couple of bands from Brisbane (Transvall Diamond Syndicate and Bertie Page Clinic) as well as Toowoomba’s own One Dirty Bird. And much like the first gig at the Cow, it was a roaring success with a great crowd showing up and supporting all three bands with much enthusiasm.
I had fun hosting the guys and can’t wait to get them all back up – plus between sets I get to play music for once and can show off the fabulous Titus Andronicus album The Monitor when I feel like it!!

The Brendan Fevola Dinner is this week and there are still tickets available, Nicole has put together another crackerjack menu with our famous prawns platter to kick off proceedings followed by the a prime rib that is bigger than my ego.
Tickets are $120 each and proceeds will be going to the Spotted Cow as always as well as a charity to help fund injured Souths players including Dave Taylor who just went down for the count on the weekend as well.

The election campaign is going well – I am pretty sure I will have no problems of getting to 400 beers by August 21– maybe if I don’t get over 400 beers, I should give something back to the people of Toowoomba.
