Each December, The Curtin crew get lofty ideas and aim to present the ultimate Xmas Party full of Australia’s best live acts. In previous years we’ve celebrated with The Bennies, brought the Graveyard Train back from the dead and Regurgitator played a monster set of “old stuff & new stuff” in our intimate space. This year will be no compromise, and certainly no stocking stuffer, we’re getting Cash for Xmas!
A fucking spectacular live phenomenon… Cash Savage is a brutal frontwoman in the sense that she does not attempt to curry favour with the audience so much as she commands that everyone take heed. When the ball’s not in her hands, she stays connected to everyone in the band and audience by maintaining constant movement and wearing a gaze of unshakeable resolve… There are seven on stage and they work together like a gang would. No one tries to outshine the others; Savage is the leader and there’s no two ways about it. The members – two guitarists, a bassist, violinist, keyboard player and drummer – are all essential to creating one of the most spirited sounds in modern rock music. What ultimately defines the band’s performances is Savage’s singing and the sense of pure emotional investment - Beat Magazine
