Check Out the Chix

Who: Chixdiggit
Where: Ducks Nuts Hotel
When: Sunday April 18, 1999

CANADIAN punk pop band CHIXDIGGIT will headline the International contingent at Saturday's DOGBITE FESTIVAL at Maitland before heading to the Duck's Nuts Hotel for a gig on Sunday afternoon.

Humour is a key element of the band's three-chord power pop strategy, with song titles such as HENRY ROLLINS IS NO FUN, TOILET SEAT'S COMING DOWN and DOLPHINS LOVE KIDS. The group released its debut CD on SUB POP in 1996 after extensive touring with PRESIDENTS OF THE USA, SOCIAL DISTORTION and the BAY CITY ROLLERS. Since then the group has released a single CHUPACABRAS on FAT WRECK CHORDS imprint HONEST DON'S and an album BORN ON THE FIRST OF JULY. Check the gig guide for the full DOGBITE 99 line up.

TE has two copies of BORN ON THE FIRST OF JULY to give away. To go in the draw send an envelope with your name, address and a telephone number on the back, to THE POST CHIXDIGGIT GIVEAWAY, PO Box 200, Newcastle, 2300.
