Everyone has come away with a hard-luck story from 2020 say the Gadflys.
Be it fire, flood or pestilence 2020 has impacted every person.
"In the music industry we've had shows cancelled due to bushfires, months of nothing due to Covid 19 restrictions, a pretty lean year," a spokesman for the band said.
While some musicians have taken to the internet and streamed gigs, the Gadflys said they were a band that built their reputation as a 'live' audience band.
"In the Darwinian scheme of things, adapt or perish, then if Covid was a meteor and the Gadflys dinosaurs, it's adios and goodbye to them ..." the spokesman said.
But, the band aren't giving up that easily and filling a suitcase with last year's CD release Love and Despair and loading the double bass and the drums into a car to assemble on the NSW South Coast once more.
First on January 21 at 9pm at the Quarterdeck in Narooma, then Nethercote Hall on the edge of the Ben Boyd National Park on Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd at Navigate Arts at the Old Church in Tanja and an intimate show at Cobargo Hotel with the Moriarty Brothers on digging into their extensive back catalogue on Sunday 24th.
