David Le’aupepe (Gang Of Youths) / The Button Collective / Nothing Rhymes With David / Spencer Scott / Allison Gallagher / 31.01.16


Sunday 31st January // 2pm // All-ages

“It’s the place where we’ve spent countless hours laughing, joking, telling tall tales and downing long-necks. The garden at Black Wire is a universe unto itself, and so this January we’re bringing the gig out there for a Sunday afternoon of unplugged acoustic entertainment.

Opening the show will be ALLISON GALLAGHER. You may have recently seen Allison fronting a new band, Skin Prison, with the gents from Frame 313. You may have also seen her playing solo acoustic, which she’ll be doing here. Expect some heartfelt originals and maybe a few killer covers.

Next up is someone who’s no stranger to the surrounds of Black Wire – former Newcastle kid and now official Sydney-sider SPENCER SCOTT. He’s opened for the likes of Wil Wagner, Georgia Maq and the Dead Kennedys (no shit!); and he most recently put out a top-notch 7-inch split with the aforementioned Georgia. Let’s make this guy feel welcome in his new home.

Sandwiched nice and tight in the middle is NOTHING RHYMES WITH DAVID. He has slowly but surely been working toward the release of his second album, Things Work Out for People Like You, and this show will effectively (and finally!) launch it. Forget Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt – this is Fat Guy Wears Heart On Sleeve music right here.

The wanderers of THE BUTTON COLLECTIVE are stopping in for their first-ever appearance at Black Wire. Having traversed up and down the coast playing their sea-shanties and folksy ballads across near every pub and folk festival you could imagine, a new EP is on the horizon and they’ll be sharing tracks from it – as well as a bunch of others. Y’arr!

Finally, headlining the show – and also making his debut – is DAVID LE’AUPEPE. You might know David as the lead singer, guitarist, keyboardist and primary songwriter of GANG OF YOUTHS, who have had a remarkable year playing sold-out national tours, scooping up an ARIA nod or two and releasing one of the most acclaimed albums of the year in The Positions. David will be doing a rare solo set, stripping back his songs right to their very skeleton for all to enjoy.

It’s AA, BYO and $10. Doors are at 2 and music will start from 2:30. This is going to be a really interesting experience/experiment and hopefully a lot of fun. Join us!”
