THE band behind the 2020 lockdown anthem Albury Wodonga is making tracks for the Border.
Melbourne pub-rock kingpins Private Function will host a massive end-of-tour show at the Ettamogah Pub on Saturday, July 24.
On announcing the line-up yesterday Private Function said the gig was a long time in the making.
"This is the show our entire career has been leading towards," they said.
"Albury-Wodonga deserves the best and they're gonna get it!"

At the time Private Function said the song was a "punk-rock celebration of the harmony between the two" cities.
"In a time where the two key Victorian/NSW border towns are separated not only by the Murray River but also a quarantine roadblock, the new Private Function single Albury Wodonga celebrates the unity and love between the two namesake locales," the band said.
"The track is an ode to not only arriving at the crown jewel of the Hume Highway, but the joys and memories made along the way.
"To the good people in Albury-Wodonga who are going through the tough times of 2020, this one is for you."
The song was wholeheartedly embraced by Border residents with Triple M's The Border telling the band in an interview: "You just don't know how much it's lifted our spirits here on the Border with everything going on ... no other band has made their way into our hearts like you guys."
Accompanying the single was the jubilant clip for Albury Wodonga, directed once again by Private Function's drummer, Aidan McDonald.
The video, which was filmed on the journey toward Albury-Wodonga, conveys the ecstasy of spending time on the road with mates while heading straight into the heart of a sublime destination.
Onsite camping at Ettamogah Pub will be available for ticket holders throughout the weekend.
Shuttle buses to and from Albury Railway Station will be on offer.
The July 24 show starts at 2pm.
