Join Powderworks in celebrating the Power and the Passion of Midnight Oil

Powderworks is a four-piece rock band from Newcastle, Australia, formed to celebrate the music of Midnight Oil.

Powderworks is not another Oils tribute but rather a group of seasoned musicians dedicated to evoking the unbridled energy of early, small-venue Oils shows.

Powderworks, considering the members of Midnight Oil inimitable, eschews impersonation in presenting faithful renditions of many well-loved (and some slightly more esoteric) Midnight Oil tracks for your listening pleasure.

Powderworks exhorts you to bring your best Garrett to the show so all may collectively revel in a time when sweat dripped from the ceiling of every venue while a Cold War raged. You are invited...
