Music Week Puts Punk Into The Place

Music Week Puts Punk Into The Place

What: Punk'n'Grind
Where: Wheeler Place
When: Wednesday October 26, 2005

NEWCASTLE Music Week is in full force.

It began with a huge launch at Wheeler Place last week and continues with a series of live events and A Major Music Expo. One of last year's biggest attractions, Punk'n'Grind, will return to Wheeler Place tonight.

Headlining will be Newcastle's Conation alongside fellow locals Draw The Line and The Common Code and Central Coast band Angela's Dish. Gold Coast outfit Braxton will also appear at the show.

It is the band's third show in Newcastle in as many months and coincides with what is shaping up to be their most extensive tour yet.

The five-piece is promoting their debut EP Under The Radar, which was released after the band signed with ECP Records. Known for their energetic live shows, the band's style drifts somewhere between rock'n'roll with a little dance flavour.

Frontman Alex Dempsey said the group looked forward to playing to new audiences.

``To tell you the truth I probably enjoy shows out of my comfort zone a little bit more than the ones back home,'' Dempsey said. ``The comfort zone is good because it's more of a fun thing but when you're outside of it, you're constantly going to be in different situations and that's usually where the best shows happen.'' In keeping with the punk theme there will be skate demos by Newcastle Skate and plenty of clothing and CD giveaways at tonight's gig.

Entry to the all-ages event is free.
