Saturday, Kim Volkman & the Whiskey Priests @ Old Hepburn Hotel
Kicking mostly around St Kilda since 2006, Kim Volkman and the Whiskey Priests play rock, hard driving rock.
With a nod to swampy blues, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Rose Tattoo, Volkman’s songs “reflect life, bitter and sweet with a lot of heart and soul", with a couple of old favourites thrown in.
The four-piece features members of Ian Rilen and the Love Addicts, X, Ron Peno and the Superstitions, The Hired Guns, Bittersweet Kicks and The Tarantinos.
