Main Stage Saturday – Moreland City Soul Revue
Driving through the seemingly unplanned and often grotesquely industrial streets of Moreland, your head will fill with questions.
What good could ever come from this barren mass of concrete, glass and stone?
What history of working class sweat and tears lies within each one of the blood red bricks that scatter across this cursed borough of broken dreams?
Well, on any given Sunday afternoon, in any one of Moreland’s great dirty ale houses, these questions and more might just be answered as you gather with a hundred or so eager drinkers, straining to get a closer look towards a beat up drum kit and some old telecasters. And gathering to the side of this hopelessly inadequate stage you’ll find the main event – the purveyors of soul, the distillers of rhythm, the people’s band.
As these sons of Brunswick take to the stage, and you hear the cult followers around you erupt in a wave of support, you’ll sense a beautiful feeling that’s been lost like a long forgotten holiday – the feeling of hope. And you’ll realise surely as the first note starts, that despite everything life throws at you, all the pain and dashed ideas, all the rotten fruit and labours of love, all the broken hearts and jaded savings, you’ll realise that for now at least, everything is going to be alright. For this day, you’re in the hands of the Moreland City Soul Revue.
See the Moreland City Soul Revue on the Bendigo Bank Main Stage at 12:45pm on Saturday 23 February.
