Archer: What: Tour
When: Fri Mar 24
Where: Smith’s Alternative

Archer is an old-time, sing-song man with a truly captivating voice that reaps of experience well beyond his years. He has a new single out on March 18, ‘My Little Sweet Aussie Sweetheart’, a beautiful rediscovery of Mike O’Malley’s little known original ballad from the 1950s. It’s a sunburnt rambler and is as refreshingly humble as the man behind the voice that croons it. In true Archer style, and in honour of all the sweet Aussie sweethearts out there, he is also offering free admission to any of his shows to all women over 65. [9pm / $15 at]
