As brash and confident as they are strange and uncompromising, the three founding members of Spiderbait Janet, Whitt and Kram started humbly in the rural NSW township of Finley, the fervent music lovers taking inspiration from everything from Slayer to The Bangles and meshing into one intoxicating and unique brew.
Having learned their trade bashing out their idiosyncratic thrash-pop tunes in the shed on Janets familys farm, they soon relocated down to Melbourne and immersed themselves in that rich and fertile scene, quickly becoming important cogs of that important musical machine.
Great Southern Nights is a celebration of live music that takes place right across New South Wales.
The dynamic event features hundreds of COVID-safe performances at live music venues across Greater Sydney and regional NSW in March and April 2022.
Great Southern Nights is a NSW Government initiative, delivered by Destination NSW in partnership with the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) to stimulate the revival of the States live music, entertainment and hospitality sectors, and in turn the NSW visitor economy, in response to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
