A five-date “hybrid music festival” featuring Lethal Dialect, JYellowL, Vernon Jane & more is happening at Drop Dead Twice this month

The gigs, albeit, seated, socially distanced and with reduced caps are coming back.

Laters with Griff will be co-hosted by actor, poet and spoken word artist Emmet O’Brien.

Griffin says:

“The motives behind producing this series of shows is to begin a narrative to restore
the capacity for skilled technicians and artists to engage in their vocations in a safe
and controlled environment within the regulations and parameters set out by our
health officials and Government. As well as moving towards providing
income for our decimated entertainment industry. We, along with so many people
in the music and live events industries, are constantly innovating in this
ever-changing climate that seems to move its goal posts every time we take a shot
at restoration of the arts community.”
