Lead singer and bassist Luke Woodhouse told the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen the show, to be held on Saturday 18 October could lead to even bigger shows for the band.
“If we get a good size crowd that will lead to more and bigger shows,” he said.
Jason Lives will be performing with support from False Kingdom, Medicine Dog, Grey the Sky, Anti-Violet and Black Diamond.
The band got on the bill after impressing organisers at a previous show.
“It’s put on by a company called Gunn Music who organise a lot of shows,” Luke said.
“We played some competition shows for them earlier this year and although we did not win they liked us and said they would be keen to give us at more gigs.
“This is our first show for them and they have given us headline spot on a Saturday night at the Espy.”
The band sees the show as a major promotional opportunity.
“We plan to film the show with multiple cameras so it’s important to get a good size crowd to help the footage look good.”
As such, the band is encouraging people interested in coming to make contact via Facebook or jasonlives.net for cheap tickets.
Jason Lives has not played a local show in “at least seven years,” performing in Melbourne instead. Luke said he was keen for the band to be a part of the new local music scene growing in Warragul, either as a support or headline act.
