- Melbourne gig on September 28
The Meanies have nothing to announce, it’s not a milestone year, there’s no birthday to celebrate or new release on the immediate horizon, they’re just doing a gig because you deserve it. You’ve waited patiently since December last year for a Meanies show and now they’re doing one, just for you, just the hell of it, just cos they can!
But they’re not doing it alone, oh no, The Meanies always enlist the best possible help to make sure you lot have a cracking good time and on this occasion it’s the creme-de-la-creme of local talent.
Brat Farrar, fresh from their Euro tour where France especially got the best of them.
The Maggie Pills have an international flavour that hits everyone’s sweet and savoury spots all at once.
Billiam & the Split Bills are just spectacular, there are no two ways about it and that Billiam chap has to be the most prolific songwriter since, well, Link Meanie!
There you have it folks, gig of the freakin’ year.
Now I better tell you where and when, that’d help…. Thursday 28th September at the Evelyn Hotel, Brunswick St, Fitzroy.
Tickets on sale now, get ‘em while they’re hot.

- Foo Fighters show!
Friday was a bit of a big day for The Meanies. 30 Years after playing with Nirvana early 1992, The Meanies opened for Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters in Geelong, for the first stadium show in Australia after two years of lockdowns.
In 1992 Nirvana was booked as a support band, to play with Tumbleweed and The Meanies. We all know what happened in the few months leading up to them coming to Australia. The lucky bastards who had tickets were suddenly seeing the biggest band in the world.
It was so amazing to have live music back on such a big scale. The atmosphere was electric. The audience went off during the Foo Fighters set, even though it rained most of the night, and they were soaked to the bone. Musicians and the many hundreds of crew behind the scenes, were so happy to get back to what they love doing. Smiling faces all around.
Meeting Dave Grohl and Pat Smear was the icing on the cake! Ace human beings!
Frontier Touring and Always Live Victoria pulled this off in about 3 weeks, after Dave Grohl saw Australia was finally opening up! The Foo Fighters are back in Australia in November. Tickets are going on sale this week.
The Meanies are finally touring their latest album Desperate Measures with shows in QLD, NSW, ACT, SA and VIC. More info here: https://www.themeanies.net/gigs/
