There once was a pub in Fitzroy
Its hospitality we definitely all enjoy
The lease wasn't renewed
We all fucken spewed
And the music scene
Forever was destroyed!
Poetry by Bodyjar's Tom Read
Getting the bands back together! Join us for a trip down memory lane – aka 1990s Brunswick Street – as we pay homage to the musos who helped shape the Melbourne music scene. These are the artists who cut their teeth at the Punters Club, over cheap beers and a really sticky carpet. These are the artists you would have seen on any given evening (or Sunday arvo) on a stroll through Fitzroy. Hang out, have a beer and catch up with old friends (or long-lost loves) as your favourite 90's era bands hit the stage for a song or two, doing what they do best.
