Dan Lethbridge & The Handsome Bastards play 2 sets from 9:30pm FREE
Dan’s debut 'Dreamers of the World Unite', established him as one of Melbourne's most likeable and idiosyncratic songwriters. The album took him on a year-long promotional tour, playing to audiences across Australia before winding up at New York's famed Rockwood Music Hall.
Following this Lethbridge turned 'guitarist for hire', grabbing the opportunity to add his own guitar stylings to the songs of artists he admired. He joined Young Werther's national tour in support of their 'Knights of the Department Store' album and, after a chance meeting in a Richmond guitar shop, spent a year as lead guitarist for Damon Smith's band The Quality Lightweights.
The Handsome Bastards are Rick Plant, Shane O'Mara, Dan Lethbridge and Ralf Rehak. Conceived in O'Mara's Yarraville lounge room in 2012, the band ventures out once in a while to show their favourite dark and twisted country songs to the world. They've played with everyone - come see them play with themselves!
