Dallas Frasca

w/ Palace of the King, My Dynamite and The Underhanded
Doors 8pm - $13 Pre / $15 Door
Returning from their fourth triumphant tour overseas in the past 18 months, Melbourne three-piece riff rockers, Dallas Frasca are set to celebrate their international successes and unleash their explosive new single and video, You Are Beautiful.

The new single and accompanying video addresses the controversial topic of ‘body image’; how it is portrayed by the media and perceived in society. Dallas’ unapologetic vocals lead the procession in this modern day protest song, sending out a message loud and clear, calling for self-acceptance and positive change. Matched by the colossal guitar tones of Jeff Curran, You Are Beautiful is packed with punch and plenty of heart, entering exciting new territory for the band whilst staying true to their heavy rock roots.
