"You Am I rock the Irish Club"

TOOWOOMBA'S Irish Club got a taste of something special when iconic Aussie rock act You Am I rolled into town.

You Am I played to a houseful of excited punters in Toowoomba as part of their latest tour.

The group was gallantly supported by local Toowoomba boys and some friends from Brisbane-town.

Local band Mace and the Motor were far from outdone by oz-rock royalty and made sure fans showed up early to catch all of the action.

Followed by Brisbane group The Fuss, crowds were treated to a quality night of rock and roll.

Finda was there to catch all of the bands and the abundance of smiling faces.

Still working on that hot first release.



Mace and The Motor are an exciting, tight-as-hell, Indie Rock three piece hailing from Toowoomba, Queensland. Consisting of Mace McGregor (Vocals and Guitar), Luke Anderson (Drums) and Mark Garland (Bass), the trio have been playing together for over three years.
The band has recently played the gig of a lifetime, winning the coveted unearthed opening spot on Triple J’s ‘One Night Stand’ bill to be held in Dalby on June 2. The trio, who will be sharing the stage with Matt Corby, Stonefield, 360 and Temper Trap, beat out over 350 other entrants to play the festival that attracted over 15,000 people.
The Triple J press released stated:
Mace & The Motor’s Unearthed profile captured our attention with tunes that nimbly shift from no-shits-given rock and roll, with a definite Phil Jamieson & co influence, to a weathered, bluesy twang. It was difficult to ignore the trio and the rocking grunt they’ll add to the One Night Stand line-up.
Not only does triple j broadcast the entire event live on the radio, they also provide the full multi-platform experience with online videos, photos, music streams and artist blogs.
Most notably to date, the band has supported Aussie rock legends You Am I and The Hard-On’s. They have also supported College Fall (Sydney) and The Shake Up (Sydney) and have played with local acts Suicide Swans, One Dirty Bird, Project 62 and The Fuss.
With influences including The Beatles, Supergrass, Foo Fighters and The Kinks, Mace and the Motor exude a passion that jumps from the stage, stomps on your foot and dares you to walk away. Luke, Mark and Mace harbour an arsenal of sticky, wet and deliciously warm rock and roll. Screaming sweet vocals ride a thunderingly tight rhythm section of mature and established tunes which start and finish before you realise you've had your butt kicked..
