MARK Seymour (of Hunters and Collectors fame) is fronting The Petrolsexuals, a band created specifically for a car-themed rock show on Saturday, October 19.
It promises to be a fuel-injected finale for the day of performances, installations and artworks at the TAMS depot site in Fyshwick, a part of the Centenary celebrations.Seymour will be joined on stage by Australian country music star Felicity Urquhart and Canberra act, the Brass Knuckle Brass Band.
The venue, the TAMS depot hangar holds 1100 people. The show will be shown live on a big screen on the site outside the hangar, so another 4000 people – the site’s capacity – will be able to see the show for free.
The Petrolsexuals gig will be preceded by SPIN Wear, a fashion parade of designer costumes crafted from Canberra cars and car parts, revealing the skills of local designers and Canberrans’ desire to wear cars as well as drive them.
