featured gig

The last few years has seen RICOCHET PETEbecome a bit older, dirtier and grittier but definitely not any more mature. Their new album Burning Bridgesshow’s they’re still all about drinking, boys, heroes and BFFs, now they’re just a little more cynical [and a lot more fierce] too. Joining the rowdy launch celebration at The Jade this weekend will be local babes FRESH KILLS and local babettes THE VILLENETTES.
