We at Augie grew up playing wherever we could, for whoever would have us, for as long as they would have us. We were a Collingwood based band but we had no truck with the river crossing nonsense and played every dive we could. We even got to play a few nice places. We always kept that philosophy, and the span of a year would see us playing the Sydney Opera House, The Forum, then someone’s back yard followed by a month long residency in a distant suburban bar. More than anything it’s been about giving our audience a look at the different kind of band we can be, as at home in a ballroom as a front bar and able to make you feel like you were in one when you were in the other.
