We’re holding these two benefit shows over the Easter long weekend in April to help replace and/or upgrade broken/dodgy gear (speakers/mics/leads/stands etc.) to help all of the bands and audience members coming here to continue having an excellent experience. Hopefully also to offset some of the rising cost of utilities, recycling etc. and assist us in just keeping the doors open. So some of our absolute favourite bands are coming up/out to support us and entertain you! More info soon!

FB event page is here.

Nervous-Trend-24-small

Friday 24th January // 7pm // All-ages

NERVOUS TREND are fucking fantastic. Really. Bleak-but-heaps-catchy/dark/post-punk (mostly) from Perth and are gracing us all in this (sometimes) fine city with their presence in a special one-off performance. So don’t miss it! Stream or download the demo here: http://nervoustrend.bandcamp.com/

SEX NOISES are also great. More garage-y/indie/punk from Canberra. They are launching their new 7″, which you can stream or download here: http://cinnamonrecords.bandcamp.com/album/sex-noises-birds-of-paradise

MORNINGS contain one Sex Noise, but are more at the post-rock-y end of the glorious punk-rock spectrum. Also from Canberra. You can stream or download their most recent release here: http://cinnamonrecords.bandcamp.com/album/mornings-guilty

PALMAR GRASP are bloody excellent too. Self-described “suburban feminist emo noise” that if you live in this city and haven’t seen you’ve either been going to the wrong shows or just turning up late (or just not going out, which is fine). Slacker. Stream or download their demo here: http://palmargrasp.bandcamp.com/
