“Last show for the year….what better place than blackwire records!? We are bringing up two of our favorites from our recent “Your Town” tour in Gold Class (Melbs) + Wives (Canberra).”


“Your Town”LP (2014)
“Old Life” LP(2012)
” One of the most emotive and affecting Australian records in recent memory” MESS & NOISE


“Michae/Gone” 7
“eerily relentless percussion and cauterising guitar noise, all embellished by vocalist Adam Curley’s evocatively dreary timbre ” BEAT

(formerly known as Sweet Shoppe) are your new favourite post-punk band. Like all great post-punk bands, they were bred out of the sewer of manipulation, deceit and backstabbing – also known as our nation’s capital of Canberra-WHO THE HELL

HOLD ON! An afternoon of Art and Music / 14.12.14

Sunday 14th December // 1pm // All-ages

“Over the last 2 months, 30+ Sydney artists have been exploring the theme “HOLD ON!” in a range of different styles and mediums. Artists were given the freedom to interpret the theme however they wish. On Sunday 14th December the fruits of their labour will be revealed for all to see!

Artists contributing are:
Leah Jean, Amelia Rose, Ellie Rose, Mitch Harris, Mel Meek (Restricted Photography), Trisch Roberts, Carizza Teague, Alice Amsel, Glenno Smith, Jack Wotton, Stefanie Sara Mateus, Nina Tempone, Lizzie Nagy, Liam Limes, Elmo Aoyama, Emma Jenkins, EGG, Mac Archibald, Jessica Lawrence, Amy Carter, Anthea LeBroq, Carla Cutrone, Shona Brinley, Erin O’Brien, Arthur Seigneur, Hannah Saliou, Grimm Sugar, Luke Marcatili, Bronte Goodieson, Human Errxr, Torika Jones, Susan Murray, Luchi Smith, Johnny BB, Radmaxwho, Kirsten Von Kiki & Shit & Failure.

Accompanying the exhibition, will be an afternoon of homegrown music including Polyfox, Zzzounds, Jack & Elmo & Free Boots (Blossom McKenzie-King)!

The exhibition will be held at Black Wire Records in Annandale, which is an artist and volunteer run record shop, venue & gallery. The choice of this space is significant as we hope that Black Wire is the kind of place that will stand the test of time or “hold on”. It is a safe and supportive environment for young and emerging artists.

There will also be some delicious vegan food choices cooked fresh on the day!

This event is being held as a fundraiser for Black Wire Records, and Black Wire will be having a 10% off sale on everything in the shop!

Free entry, but gold coin donation appreciated :).”

“hey we (marnie and I / hannahband )have been working real hard on finishing our new album its called ‘retirement’ and this is the party/gig that we share it with you/who ever want to hear it. itll be available digitally for free the week of the event, along with pre orders for vinyl/cassette via our friends at bLesstalk Records and Art As Catharsis! and maybe a few other cool things 🙂 Its at our second home blackwire and we have asked some of our dear friends to play the show as well: Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt, who rule, but you already knew that…Roland Major, for ultimate heavy-gaze blessness…as well as Nothing Rhymes With David, Blossom Mckenzie-King andGeorgia Maq who are going to play lovely acoustic songs between the ‘angry’ stuff 🙂 so call in sick to yr work xmas party or something and come and hang out. bless. xxox”

“HANNAHBAND are a primal post-punk duo out to blur the lines between pop and aggressive music. This is an album you’ve been longing for without knowing it. Primal and pure, it’ll have you both tapping your feet and clenching your teeth. You can’t help but feel cleansed after walking away. Retirement is another gem from Australia’s vibrant underground music scene. Fans of Against Me!, La Dispute, Joy Division and Cloud Nothings will find much to love on Retirement.” //
