Stories Through Song - Pub Anthems

Late nights, cold drinks, loud sing alongs. We all have visceral memories of long nights in pubs, even if the memories are a little hazy!

Robert Jonathan James presents the next instalment of STS - Pub Anthems.

The melting pot of front bar culture which combines various genres of rock through to pop, the classics that transcend generations. Grab a coldie, order a schnitty and sing along to your heart's content!


We'd like to thank you for supporting local artists and businesses.

We would also like to stand by Adelaide Fringe in recognition of the Kaurna Yerta Meyunna First Nations People:

"Adelaide Fringe recognises Kaurna Yerta Meyunna First Nations People and their ancestral lands. The lands were never ceded and remain as important to the living Kaurna people today. We respect the living culture, spirit, and country of the First Peoples. We acknowledge and embrace the significance and diversity of First Nations People’s contributions in our Fringe and in the greater arts community."

Brazil Town -

The perfect way to wrap up the week and have some fuss free fun. Set in the front bar, which will be transformed into a comedy club, local legend Big Al will host a collective of quality comics from near and far for a night of side splitting humour.


Sometimes provocative and always entertaining, this show is best suited to a mature audience that doesn’t mind getting down and dirty.
