The Illawarra gig guide

GIG OF THE WEEK: THE SIDETRACKED FIASCO

Friday, December 14

Cabbage Tree Hotel

Free entry

The SideTracked Fiasco like to be a little weird. Their music is a blend of funk, hardcore, punk and hip-hop, while their on-stage antics involve coating themselves in body paint, donning face masks and morph suits and wearing hula skirts patterned with both skulls and rubber ducks. In short, they're not what most people expect.
