What’s on in Cairns April 2017
Spiderbait – Live in Cairns
Tanks Arts Centre ,Cairns
Hot on the heals of a cracking run of shows in vineyards across the country, Spiderbait are preparing to hit the road again. Kram, Whitt and Janet will be throwing it back to 1996, playing their third and most celebrated album, the seminal ‘Ivy and the Big Apples’, in its entirety.
20 years ago, ‘Ivy and the Big Apples’ earned its title after elderly Finley local Ivy Matheson won a local gardening competition with her lovely apples. When reported in the Southern Riverina News the headline read “Ivy and the Big Apples”. Just like Ivy’s orchard, this album is packed full of blue ribbon treats, with Spiderbait delivering the best of their infamous and irresistible brand of pop-rock.

ANZAC Day – Cairns RSL
ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who served and died in military operations for their countries.
ANZAC Day is the day we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.
