Vale Frankie’s – a farewell fit for an iconic Sydney venue
If you’re a Sydneysider and you’re of age, there’s no doubt in my mind you’ve visited this iconic venue.
Frankie’s Pizza holds a special place in the hearts of locals, lovers of live music, and a bonafide good time.
The Sydney institution has survived a pandemic, lock-out laws, and the increasing hostility that live music venues face from the powers that be.
Now, as their tenth birthday approaches, Frankies Pizza is saying goodbye and they are going out with a BANG.
Co-owner Jordan McDonald chats with Wednesday Drive host Sean Hatzinikolou about all the farewell events scheduled before Frankie’s closes for good on December 11.
Here’s the line-up for the last two weeks:
Thursday, December 1: Beginning of the End
Sunday, December 4: FreakFlag Events will host the Final Feast, which Frankie’s Instagram says “may land them in prison”.
Monday, December 5: Frankie’s World Famous House Band will take to the stage to play one last rip roarin’ gig
Tuesday, December 6: TNT Trivia will put on their final quiz show, with punters playing for the chance to win an entire year’s supply of Young Henry’s beer.
Wednesday, December 7: 2000s Aussie rock legends Wolfmother will be playing on stage alongside Hard Rock Karaoke
Thursday, December 8: The Casanovas LIVE
Saturday, December 10: Kiss Frankie’s Goodbye
Sunday, December 11: Frankie’s turns 10 – Frankie’s Goes to Hell
