King So­cial set to play free gig, writes RACHEL RI­LEY

Acous­tic chill thrill

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

TOWNSVILLE res­i­dents have the chance to hear a free acous­tic ses­sion by King So­cial to­mor­row night at Zam­brero in Cannon Park.

Fresh off the plane from their Syd­ney gig last week at the Ox­ford Art Fac­tory, the band is ex­cited to be sup­port­ing a lo­cally- owned fran­chise busi­ness.

Zam­brero Cannon Park fran­chise owner David Scott said the res­tau­rant was try­ing to be cre­ative and in­no­va­tive in its ap­proach to at­tract­ing more pa­trons and re­peat busi­ness.

“Times are a bit tough in Townsville at the mo­ment for busi­ness, so we need to be as in­no­va­tive as we can to try and get peo­ple through the doors,” he said.

“Ev­ery cou­ple of weeks the res­tau­rant hosts ‘ chill out Fri­day’ and we have had a few lo­cal acts play some low- key tunes to help peo­ple un­wind af­ter a week at work.

“King So­cial is an awe­some lo­cal band that has sin­gle­hand­edly reignited the live mu­sic scene around here, all with orig­i­nal mu­sic.

“To have them here on Fri­day is go­ing to be a real boost for us and a great op­por­tu­nity for lo­cals to hear some of their mu­sic with­out a cover charge.”

King So­cial, sup­ported by DJ Kelly Neville, will play an acous­tic set at Zam­brero, Cannon Park Shop­ping Cen­tre, to­mor­row night from 6pm.

En­try is free.
