Lazy Fifty, The Covers Set

Remember the meat and two-veggie days when bands played guitars, drums and bass and covers so hard-out the music sent ripples across the pub carpet? You can now relive the kick-em-in-the-nuts sound of the 70s (sans drum solos and DB lake) when Gisborne rockers Lazy Fifty play hits from the likes of Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and ZZ Top at Smash this week. Lazy Fifty, The Covers Set, Smash Palace, Saturday 9pm, $5 on the door.
