Get ready to dust off your dancing shoes and head ‘Back to the Bar’ for UON’s first Bar on the Hill alumni reunion on Thursday 22 October. Regurgitator will headline an awesome line-up that includes Citizen Kay, The Soorleys, Fishfry/Pow Wow, Bernie Segedin and more!
ARIA award-winners, Regurgitator, were a staple in anyone’s CD player growing up in the 90s, and their genre-mashing blend of alt-rock electronica provides the quintessential party soundtrack. With a career that spans across two decades, Regurgitator show no signs of slowing down, continuing to deliver powerful live shows packed with a high-energy punch.
Australia’s next rising star in hip-hop, Citizen Kay, will also hit the stage in his only Newcastle show on his current With The People album tour. Dubbed as one of the most exciting hip-hop releases of the year, the first single from the album, Wax On Wax Off showcases Citizen Kay’s smooth and soulful side, and his sophisticated rapping style.
Also on are the line-up are local folk favourites, The Soorleys, who make every live performance feel like a collective family sing-a-long, laced with jangling banjo, thumping beats and beautiful four-part harmonies.
