Melbourne’s punk rock party-inciting progeny THE SMITH STREET BAND are just weeks away from smashing out their hugest tour ever, so they’re adding a bunch of NEW DATES, specially crafted ALL AGES shows, and a whole bunch of rad NEW BANDS have been added to all bills.

The ‘Young Drunks’ tour has exploded from 14 to 19 shows, with ALL AGES shows being added for younger folks in BRISBANE, PORT MACQUARIE and MELBOURNE, plus some extra 18+ shows in CANBERRA and GEELONG.

Extra bands have also been added to pretty much every show, giving punters the chance to see some of Australia’s most excellent new and young bands. Check out all line-ups in full HERE.  And remember; North American DIY legends BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY and Melbourne punk/ska bad boys THE BENNIES remain on board to ensure maximum fun for minimum bucks.

TSSB’s Sunshine & Technology album has been getting love in loads of 2012 end of year lists, ranking #4 in the fan-voted triple j Short.Fast.Loud poll and scoring pole position at #1 for the second year running on’s list. They also tied with the unstoppable Gotye for #4 on Drum Media’s Artist of the Year of 2012!

Come help celebrate sunshine times with so many excellent bands, beverages and friends. Tix on sale now y’all!
