Photo Diary: Perch Creek on tour

Fresh from a huge Canadian tour, Melbourne’s Perch Creek (formerly known as Perch Creek Family Jug Band) are playing at Newtown Social Club in Sydney tonight and Howler in Melbourne tomorrow. They’ll be premiering some of their songs from the forthcoming album out early next year. To wet our whistles, they have sent us a little photo diary of their time overseas. Here they are:
