Rocktober rocks on

Thirsty Merc will be rocking out at the Musicians Club tomorrow night as part of the club’s Rocktober events.
The Musician’s Club’s Logan Pascoe said they had received a lot of interest about the event.
“It’s been brilliant, we’ve been really well engaged with the locals,” he said.
“We’re even getting phone calls from Adelaide and Mildura about the show.
“People are telling us they had bought tickets to see Thirsty Merc in Mildura but didn’t realise we were hosting them free of charge.”
Logan said the event is part of their Rocktober celebrations for the month of October.
It was to kick off with a performance by Diesel but a cancelled flight meant the show couldn’t go on.
“He said he will definitely book another show. It was disappointing he couldn’t come,” Logan said.
“It was still a good night, I think people still turned up to have a good time.
“It was quite busy.”
While Thirsty Merc isn’t a ticketed event, once the Musicians Club hits capacity they will be shutting the door.
“Then it will be a one out, one in rule,” he said.
“It will be similar to Chunky Custard, it’s just the nature of big events like this.
“Our goal is for Broken Hill people to see original artists and Australian bands.
“We’re trying to bring as much live music and recording artists in as we can.
“We want to provide value for money for our members.
“It’s pretty reasonable at $10 a year; you get to see these shows for free.”
Logan did encourage people to come early to ensure they don’t miss out.
“We will have the meat draw Friday and once at capacity we will be closing the doors.
“There will be a support act, Mojos, starting at 8pm.
“We expect Thirsty Merc to start at about 9.30pm.
“Come early, have a drink and settle in.
“It’s part of the way we are doing things now, we want to host great entertainment.
“Our membership is up by 40 per cent from this time last year.”
There is also a VIP pass giveaway for a meet and greet with the band.
“Visit our Facebook page and look for the post on how to enter.
“That’s been donated by the band, which we appreciate.”
Be sure to have your Musicians Club membership up to date and bring your photo ID.
In 2016, Thirsty Merc travelled to Broken Hill as part of the Rockfest.
