If you’re a fan of AC/DC, then The Wreckers Live is the place to be on Saturday, August 11. AC/DC tribute band Son of Bon will be performing at the Goolwa live music venue, covering the Bon Scott era.
Son of Bon is made up of Lisa on vocals, Kym on lead guitar, Chris on rhythm guitar, Ferg on bass and Jacko on drums. Venue owner and manager Anita Browne said Son of Bon was the inspiration behind The Wreckers Live.
“This whole venue evolved from Chris wanting somewhere for Son of Bon to practice and play,” she said. “His dream came to life with them opening on June 9.”
She said the show would be an “absolute must-see” for AC/DC lovers, describing Kym and Chris’ playing as the “closest you are ever going to hear to Angus and Malcolm Young”. Tickets are $10 and doors open at 7pm.
Drawing on Country exhibitions
This year both the District Council of Yankalilla and City of Victor Harbor hosted Country Arts SA’s ‘Drawing on Country’ program. It was the first time each council participated in the well known program.
The Drawing on Country program was held in April. In Victor Harbor artists Margie Hooper and Care Vaughan met with 25 participants at Qawha Espresso Bar, while in Yankalilla a group of 23 participants were supported by artist Barb Pettigrew at the picturesque Bungala Park. The work that was started in April, can then be completed following the Drawing on Country events and submitted for an exhibition at a local venue during the SALA Festival.
The Drawing on Country – Yankalilla Exhibition will be held from Sunday, August 12 until August,31 at The Centre, 181 Main South Road. The opening of the Yankalilla Drawing on Country exhibition will be on Sunday, August 12 from 4pm-6pm.
