Indie Night Presents A Tribute To One Hit Wonders

Join us for a special edition of INDIE NIGHT in which we pay homage to some the of the great songs of all time! We call it TRIBUTE NIGHT! This time, the theme is ONE HIT WONDERS!

Imagine a dozen LIVE bands coming together to play a couple of One Hit Wonder COVERS, ALL ERAS, ALL NIGHT LONG!! So much fun! And it's FREE, no cover charge! Yep!

Many of these songs will be familiar to you but the artists will be mostly unknown as they only had one hit! Amazing.

There will be beer specials (thanks to Steamwhistle), and a full backline (thanks to Long & McQuade & the Piston).

If your band is interested in participating, please get in touch here on the Indie Night FB page ASAP as spots are limited! :)
