Party in the Paddock hits Tasmania on the 7TH, 8TH, 9TH FEB so we are hitting up all the hottest musicians on the line up to find out what’s on their Dream Riders and the perks they’d have backstage at Tassie’s hottest summer festival.
The Saxons are an indie-rock group from Launceston whose style is an exciting mix of your favourite garage rock sounds infused with brit-pop gloss. Their live shows are often sweaty affairs bursting with energy, and they are sure to initiate a sing-along or two while weaving their magic.
My Dream Rider (Nick from The Saxons)
A case of Launceston’s finest drop (Boags XXX Ale, just the essentials you know)
An espresso coffee machine to satisfy my caffeine jitters.
A packet of cigarettes so I can sound like Joe Cocker (hell raspy, man)
Shane Warne’s latest autobiography for inspiration and a cricket ball so I can bowl leg breaks.
A TV playing the movie Anchorman with Will Ferrell on repeat because Ron Burgundy will add a touch of class to the whole affair.
A bloody massive hot wheel racing track so the fellas and I can act like the big kids that we are.
A tattoo gun so we can all get regrettable stick and pokes that will be on our bodies until we pass away. But also so we can laugh about them for years to come.
24 packets of Mi-Goreng noodles to be served with eggs provided to us at no extra cost from event organisers. Sodium is nice.
10 metres of bubble-wrap because entertainment can be found in the subtlest of places.
An aged bottle of Tasmanian Scotch to commemorate or commiserate the evening’s events.
