Saturday 25th February // 11am // All-ages // $25

“SoundDave: Smaller, cheaper, better!
Why pay hundreds of dollars to see bands whose nostalgic value can be equally enjoyed after a six pack and a Youtube session? Come to SoundDave instead. It’ll only cost you 25 clams, all ages are welcome and it’s BYO. All the money goes to the bands/one of the best all ages venues in the country. Crazytown are not performing. More acts and set times to be announced, keep your eye on this event. But essentially, don’t be shit, put it in your diary, get there at 11 and support all the bands, even if you don’t know them. It’s a mixed musical bag but everyone involved is a good human. Fuck headliners and all that garb, come posi up.”

We’ve brought together some of the best bands from around the country including:
Epics – OFF! openers and Blackwire house band. http://epicsband.bandcamp.com

The Union Pacific (VIC) – These are rad dudes that play that awesome A World Behind beard punk song.

Palisades (VIC) – Angry, angular pretty fiddlecore about dogs.

Make More (QLD) – Previous members of To The North, current members of club awesome. http://makemoreband.blogspot.com

Quiet Steps (QLD) – The smartest morbid-ish indie band in the southern hemisphere.

Milestones (QLD) – Epic, awesome post hardcore punk stuff that makes me want to skate.
