WAMfest 2018!

Have to say I was surprised to hear of the venue for our Wamfest show. Grand Casual will kick it at the Lot Party which is basically a mini Festival setup in the heart of Perth. Checked it out last year grand setup. Also stoked to catch up with the lads from The Tapping Stickz who are right there alongside us. If you’re Perth ways Nov 3rd make sure to head in for some super casual tunes.
