On Saturday night I turned up at Marrickville Bowling Club in Sydney to see The Baylor Brothers – and a fine evening it was too, with many people, lots of dancing and some excellent music. I also learned that Marrickville Bowlo is hosting country music acts for the next few Saturday nights. Unfortunately the information is not on their website, so you may have to call to find out who’s on, but it’s great to know there’s an accessible Sydney venue that’s prepared to give country music a go. And accessibility is key in a city where parking spots are at a premium: the club is in a quieter, light industrial part of Marrickville – just around the corner from the Factory Theatre, if you know it – so there’s plenty of parking and buses run nearby.
