Thirsty Merc at Mandurah’s Crab Fest | PHOTOS

Australia’s much-loved pop rock band Thirsty Merc took over Crab Fest’s music stage on Sunday afternoon bringing their much-loved, summery tunes to Mandurah.

Four lucky residents had the opportunity to have a one on one meeting with Thirsty Merc before the concert to have a chat and get an autograph. 

This year the band mark a 10-year milestone since the release of their self-titled double platinum debut LP with the announcement of their Acoustic Anniversary Album and national tour. Dubbed AAA, the album is a collection of acoustic interpretations of fan favourites including 20 Good Reasons, In The Summertime, Someday Someday, and Mousetrap Heart. 

These new recordings showcase the band’s exemplary level of musicianship and hearing these well-known songs with acoustic production highlights the world-class song writing ability of Rai Thistlethwayte.

Having released three critically acclaimed albums, earned more than 200,000 album sales under their belt, a finalist nomination in the APRA Song of the Year for 20 Good Reasons (which also reached #1 on iTunes in Australia) and racking up three ARIA nominations, Thirsty Merc have found their way into the fabric of Australia’s musical landscape.
