With a voice as weather-beaten and worn-in as an old leather jacket, and a knack for country-blues songwriting that’s both bruised and bruising, Cash Savage leads her six-piece band The Last Drinks in a riveting performance that will prove why they are one of Melbourne’s most talked-about live acts for years.
Savage’s gruff growl and eloquent guitar licks, Kat Mears’ melancholy fiddle, a rhythm section that knows instinctively when to stomp and when to let a moment breathe: these are the tools they use to work out demons, shake off hangovers, wallow in grief and rejoice in the tender terror of new love. Dark, deep, and unmistakably Australian, Cash Savage’s wild honesty and raw charisma make for a hypnotic live experience.
