- The Twoks are heading back up the East Coast to play a couple of great shows to make sure that absolutely nobody across Australia feels left out. We here at The Twoks LOVE to play live and so it only makes sense to keep touring, touring, touring until we simply can’t tour no more.
Well, East Coast … we’re back.
The dates are as follows:
Sunday April 28th - X&Y Bar, Brisbane
Thursday May 2nd - The Rails, Byron Bay
Friday May 3rd - Solbar, Maroochydore supp. Barry Charles
Saturday May 4th - Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane
Hope to see all your shiny faces there!
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Janine from Galloping Sheep for presenting our Brisbane gigs. Thanks for supporting us musos, Janine!
