As cool as an indie art film only they have heard of, with the strength of a summertime blockbuster, almost like “Top Gun” but more like “Mad Max”.

After moving down to Melbourne at the beginning of the year, Newcastle bred Alterno-Rockers Cotton Sidewalk are coming back for a special one-off show at Full Strength Rock. They bring to the stage their own brand of Indie Rock featuring some sweet beats, mesmerizing Melodies, innovative arrangements and Oestrogen-fuelled harmonies.

The Nickson Wing is a bona fide fresh blend of indie/pop rock ‘n’ roll. The bands confident, heady style has gained them healthy respect from punters and an ever growing live following, which revels in their boundless energy and engaging gigs.

Rockers will release their inner Slash as they showcase their expertise and battle it out to be named the Full Strength Guitar Hero of 2008! Accompanying the Guitar Hero competition is an old favourite, the “Full Strength BBQ” of stadium like proportions.
