The Drones frontman Gareth Liddiard will send off one of Sydney’s favourite music venues with a bang.

After three years of operation since rescuing the beloved ‘Sando’ pub on King Street, Newtown Social Club recently announced its impending closure due to “the current regulatory climate in Sydney and the inherent challenges therein”.

 

Now, the Australian songwriter Liddiard has been confirmed to play the final ever show at the venue as part of his national tour.

 

Liddiard’s return to stage coincides with his return home after a month-long sabbatical in Latin America, and he’ll be playing a mix of solo cuts, Drones classics and unheard newbies.
