Choirboys: Run to Paradise
Sat 6 April 2024, at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
As young twenty-something-year-olds, Choirboys formed in 1978, growing up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The wild, hedonistic lifestyle the band witnessed of the youth in the 70s is ultimately what gave birth to their seminal rock anthem, Run To Paradise. It’s all about the stories that sound all too familiar within the culture widely assumed of the music industry – “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll” and they tell it all.
Who would have thought that Run To Paradise, thirty-five years on, would ultimately have started the first chapter of a myriad of untold stories as recalled by a band that’s seen it all, heard it all, and helped in the craziness.
Run To Paradise is a “spilling of the beans” of sorts. Its part story, part song that chronicles some of the wildest, most risqué, outrageous, and downright hilarious stories of Australian Rock. All, as these Oz pub-rock icons recall it.
