9pm – 12am
Tago Mago – 744 High St, Thornbury
Intoxica play rock and roll, pure and simple. With garage, rockabilly, surf and blues in it. Thumping drums and bass, fuzzy and twangy guitars and the distinctive vocal styling and hypnotic presence of Tony Shaw. You can dance to every song except the really fast ones you can shake to.
Intoxica started gigging in 1987 and haven’t stopped. They’re the only band from the eighties that hasn’t quit and reformed – they’re just playing more and more! Now a new generation of fans is packing into venues like The Retreat and Cherry to witness what The Age describes as ‘psychobilly legends’. If you get the chance to experience their unique blend of psychobilly, surf apocalypse, and relentless rock and roll, presented in blistering live performance, you will understand how they came to influence and inspire so many of today’s ‘new rock’ acts.
