After the hellish year of Victorian lockdown and doubt, Frankenbok are back stronger than ever and ready to rip the roof off the Tote on August 21. Local music is in need of local support and there is no better way to come back to the fray than to see these Melbourne veterans at their strongest at one of the best venues in Melbourne.

Brisbane hard rock unit PistonFist have certainly been busy in the first half of 2021.
 
Fresh from a leading slot at Kilfest in Melbourne to shows in Far North Queensland and future tours of Melbourne, Canberra and Adelaide, this four piece has certainly taken the proverbial bull by the horns and utilised their time fully.
 
From playing with King Parrot, to Frankenbok, to Thy Art Is Murder and The Poor, PistonFist have shown not only their versatility across the hard rock/metal spectrum, but also won over legions of new fans with each outing.

Unfortunately that bastard child of no-one COVID has put paid to yet more planned activities. I hate to mention it week after week but until it pisses off and leaves us to our devices it is a sad reality that cancellations and postponements will become more the norm than an anomoly.
 
Next weekend sees the postponement of Brisbane’s Moondoll Festival, which in turn leads to Frankenbok having to reschedule their three day Queensland visit as well.

As is the nature of the beast in the current climate, we once again see the postponement of a host of live shows due to Covid.
 
It’s Brisbane’s turn to feel the brunt of the weight, with next weekend’s Moondoll Festival at the Mansfield Tavern having to re-evaluate plans given the present restrictions.
 
As a result, Frankenbok will be staying in Victoria so their sideshows at Eleven Dive Bar and Mo’s Desert Clubhouse have also been temporarily shelved with announcements of rescheduled dates to be made public as soon as possible.
