Looking for a way to make the most of your Australia Day? Our Livelist editor has found some events on around town that’ll be sure to rock your socks off.
1. HUNNAS OFF HIATUS
When the river ran dry, Hunters and Collectors went into hiatus, only appearing at one-off events including Sound Relief. But now the band has been reactivated and rejuvenated by Crucible, a lovingly curated album featuring 15 stunning tributes/remixes by The Living End, Birds Of Tokyo, The Avalanches, Neil Finn & Eddie Vedder and Paul Kelly accompanied by 15 original Hunnas’ classics. Mark Seymour and co. did their reputation justice at the AFL Grand Final too. “There was unity, there was pride and a total lack of bulls—” Seymour said. And doesn’t that capture the Aussie spirit! Succinct. On Saturday they kick off Australia Day weekend with A Day on the Green show supported by You Am I, Something For Kate and British India. General admission tickets are available for $99. The Hill Winery, Geelong. Sat, 3.30pm. Collect tickets early!
