For out-of-towners the Ekka is the local Agricultural Show/State Fair or Exhibition shortened in the Australian way to Ekka. So to attract the youngsters they have a concert series and last Friday night The Grates were in town taking a break from writing their next album in an undisclosed location somewhere in the USA.
The new stuff sounds pretty good. So does the old stuff. Pae's voice takes a few songs to warm up she is then in good form for not having performed much at all over the last few months.
Local youngsters Ball Park Music have some good songs and are great support.
