Tonight's a special night for many of my nearest and dearest.
It's the farewell show for long-standing local band barbarasteele.
The band has had many different incarnations throughout its many years of existence, and tonight at Cafe Du Nord, all former and current members will perform in a climactic send-off for Nero Nava's barbarasteele.
Nero has lovingly created The Barbarasteele Mixtape, including demos, premixes, live cuts and rare stuff, which will be offered to all attendees of tonight's show free with admission.
It has been a year since key 'steele member Mike Jilali died, forcing a sudden but, due to the circumstances, inevitable end of the road for barbarasteele. In addition to being the final night to hear barbarasteele songs performed, the show will function as a celebration of Mike's life.
Here's the official line up for tonight -- show starts at 9pm and costs $8:
Nero Nava and the Invitation to Love
and performances by Jacqui Elliott & Marc Perry, Goliath and Relise
After tonight, Nero will continue with his new project The Invitation to Love, so keep your eyes peeled for future gigs. Hope to see you there tonight.
