The Westernport Hotel has established a reputation over the last 12-18 months as one of the few venues down south to offer premier live music touring acts, up close and person in a regional setting. With their regular revolving catalogue of blues and party bands including local larrikins Olly & Scuzzi and the likes of The Hornets and Jimi Hocking, the Westernport stage will welcome both Aussie and International acts to its stage in November, with a large percentage of the shows free entry!

Friday November 14 sees indie-folk favourites, The Pierce Brothers, come to town on their Northern Lights Tour. Freshly back on our shores, the duo are celebrating their international success with their largest Australian tour to date, with dates planned right through to the end of the year promoting their lates EP, The Night Tree, released earlier this year. A humble beginning busking on the street has paved the way for the brothers to become the hardworking, international touring artists they are today, selling out shows in Melbourne’s Shebeen, London and performing to a monster crowd of 10,000+ punters at Lowlands festival in The Netherlands.

Just weeks later, the venue is excited to present Alaskan bred, Portland based indie legends Portugal. The Man to the big stage on November 29 from 9pm, in conjunction with Corona Extra who are back with yet another monumental free national tour to ease you into summer. Performing venues across Western Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, the band will play selections from their seven studio albums of the chorus driven, harmonic, psychedelic indie-pop that’s proved hugely popular at festivals and gigs worldwide; most notably songs off their latest, Evil Friends, produced by Danger Mouse (U2, Gorillaz, The Black Keys).

The Westernport also sees red-neck country/blues/roots identity 8-Ball Aitken and local soul/blues sensation Alex Bowen perform as well through out the month. For the full list of gigs and information, visit
