Blue Smoke welcomes you to 'The Sunday Sit Down Get Down' our very own folk club event. We present local luminaries and national touring artist of the finest calibre, this is a first rate opportunity to catch a matinee concert with family and friends.

It's always free, it always starts at 4pm and the music is always infinitely admirable.

On Sunday the 18th December our feature artists are Yossarian.

The multi-National, multi-lingual Yossarian are a band whose every track ebbs and flows, chameleon-like from one idiom to another, never quite defining who you think they are. They have been labeled as “Alternative Rock” but this already does them a disservice. There is no catch in Yossarian, you just have to accept that they are intentionally paradoxical.

They released their first album 'The Little We Know' 5 years ago, and have since played 'Hop Farm' and 'Field Day' festival, toured Europe and Australia, and had some of their songs used in such works as a UNICEF commercial and the 'in-house entertainment' for Iberia Airlines. With their second album 'Light Up My Head' already drawing international attention with an appearance on Spanish TV channel 'Non Stop People', including a live performance of the single 'Are We Having Fun?', Yossarian are touring around Australia and New Zealand once again to grow their existing relationships with the people they love.

Just when you think you can categorise them as Alternative-Post Rock in tracks like Cloud Watching from their soon to be released second album ‘Light Up My Head’ and Arrow Part 1 from their debut album ‘The Little We Know’, they then challenge your perception through Monolith Acts I, II, & III, a meandering epic in the vein of Pink Floyd’s Shine on you Crazy Diamond.
