What’s the next fruit due for big-statue stardom in Australia? 

We already have the Big Banana, Big Pineapple and The Big Prawn, so what’s next?

If that’s the question which keeps you from sleeping at night, then fear no more as Dom and Charles from ‘Bored Shorts’ have all your queries covered. 

During their chat with Life Without Andy, the boys also discuss being a surf instructor in Bondi, a legally bound work-related incident and the most peculiar Matrix analogy i’ve ever heard. 

The band haven’t been bouncing around the music scene for long, but based on this interview and the one song featured on their Spotify page you’re in for a worthwhile set.

Bored Shorts will be accompanying Alex Lahey and The Belligerents for the third show of Stab and Summer Bright’s Summer Sessions tour, taking place at 4pm at the Hoey Moey in Coffs Harbour next Saturday.

We’ve already torn up the West side and now it’s time for the East Coast of Aus to show us what they’ve got. 

So if free gigs are up your alley, along with some icy cold tins, then I expect to be seeing you there nice and early next Saturday afternoon.

Here’s a small dose of what you’ll be in for on tour.

There’s no need to fret if you can’t make it to Coffs either, as the tour still has another three stops to go!

Here’s all those dates and deets for you gig-loving coasties: 

SAT 3rd MAR – COFFS HARBOUR – The Hoey Moey

SUN 4th MAR – BYRON BAY – Byron Bay Brewery

SAT 10th MAR – COOLANGATTA – Coolangatta Hotel
