This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Seasoned folk/punk troubadour Paddy McHugh plays his hometown of Brisbane to celebrate the release of his new single '27 Weeks', This devastatingly sad yet beautiful song is the story of a bloke from Wollongong who loses his job due to circumstances beyond his control. He is forced to figure out how to make ends meet, so he gets creative. After all he has mouths to feed. It’s dodgy, but it works. He wants to find employment again and he is looking. It’s been 27 weeks. But he ain’t found nothing yet. It is the story of one man but the reality of many. Produced by the formidable Dan Parsons this track is Paddy at his finest.

Come and celebrate the release of new music! Paddy will be joined on the night by mate/songstress Sue Ray.  

The new single drops on September 15. Preorder/buy here:
