COOPERS PRESENTS: SUPERCARS PARTY AT THE CAMBRIDGE

THIRSTY MERC – THURSDAY 23RD NOVEMBER

In 2014 Thirsty Merc marked the 10-year anniversary since the release of their self-titled, double platinum, debut LP with an Acoustic Anniversary Album and national tour. Affectionately dubbed AAA, the album was a collection of acoustic interpretations of fan favourites including the band’s biggest hits, 20 Good Reasons, In The Summertime, Someday Someday, and Mousetrap Heart. Those new recordings highlighted the band’s musicianship and the acoustic production perfectly showcased the worldclass songwriting ability of the band’s lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte. Having released three critically acclaimed albums with over 200,000 album sales under their belt, a finalist in the APRA Song of the Year for 20 Good Reasons (which also reached No. 1 on iTunes in Australia) and three ARIA Award nominations, Thirsty Merc are one of Australia’s finest live acts and their songs have become part of the fabric of Australia’s musical landscape.

Thirsty Merc are:

Rai Thistlethwayte – vocals, piano, guitar

Phil Stack – bass

Matt Smith – guitar
