    Utopians Family Night with Joel Silbersher (GOD)


    Bill Direen (NZ) together with Steve Cournane, Barry Stockley, Jess McCann and Tama Stockley interpret some of Bill's extensive back catalogue of work in anticipation for his performance at Debtfest the following night, which will feature a killer lineup of NZ performers and expat kiwis.

    Associated with iconic labels such as Flying Nun and Siltbreeze, Bill's sound is both poetic and punk. Visiting Melbourne for the first time in four years specifically for Debtfest, he will be supported at the Labour by local friends Joel Silbersher and Barry Stockley.
