Grace Before Meals added to The Nest #4 (5/12/09) lineup

The lineup is complete! Grace before meals are the final band to confirm for the exciting 4th show in The Nest series. Stay tuned for details to come.

Grace Before Meals

Grace Before Meals are a new-ish band who had their debut show in 2008 at The Cad Factory in Sydney supporting Mick Turner (The Dirty Three) and Jeffrey Wegner (The Laughing Clowns).
The band exist as a four or five piece featuring piano, xylophone, percussion, clarinet, voice, viola, bass guitar, trumpet and all manner of found things.
They combine their love for soft, creepy, beautiful music, with maddened carnival stomps.
Listen to all their songs, the next is often different from the last.
