Cash Savage & The Last Drinks are returning to the Saucer this July for what will be another impressive show. Since the delivery of their debut album Wolf (2011), Cash Savage and her band The Last Drinks have covered a lot of ground – personally, metaphorically and geographically. Having spent the gulf between albums on the road – taking in country theatres, time-honoured urban venues, as well as the Famous Speigeltent, Meredith Music Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the willow-shrouded Riverboats Music Festival alongside Pete Murray, Clare Bowditch, Archie Roach and James Reyne — the once fluid Last Drinks line up has successfully solidified. They return with their new album, “The Hypnotiser” with Japanese-born Nao Anzai, and Nick Finch on board as producer. Backed by a solid and well-oiled band, Cash shared the reins for album number two. She handed songs to her trusty troupe and the album took shape collaboratively. The result is the sum of drunken kinship polished with hard yards, while retaining the soul for which Cash is renowned. A must see!
