Mick Thomas & The Roving Commission with The Eastern & Split Seconds

Tickets $30+BF/$35 on the door. Doors 8.00PM

Get set to celebrate the warring of the tribes in fine style with Mick Thomas and the Roving Commission this Grand Final Eve. Friday 29 September at Collingwood’s Gasometer Hotel will see Mick and the Commission assemble a spectacular that befits the occasion!

This is one for locals and Out-of-Towners alike. Old Weddings Parties Anything buddy Pete 'Dr Pump' Lawler will compare the evening that kicks off at 8.30 sharp with the el fabbo Split Seconds and continues with NZ touring juggernaut The Eastern who will drop into Melbourne for an exclusive show, before Mick and his full Roving Commission line-up take the stage for a fine night of roots rocking revelry in Melbourne Town. Grand Final Eve doesn’t get much better than this!

The Line Up:

Balladeer and poet, folk and pub-rock hero Mick Thomas continues to ignite the party with his unique mix of folk, roots and country. Along for the ride are mainstays of The Roving Commission: fellow Weddings Parties Anything piano-accordionist Squeezebox Wally, drummer to the beat Dave Folley, and hot new kid on the block bass-player Michael Hubbard. Recently commissioned is special guest Ayleen O’Hanlon, adding her glorious vocals, guitar and banjo to the mix. www.mickthomas.com

The Eastern is the string band that roars like a punk band, that swings like a gospel band, that drinks like a country band, that works like a bar band, that hopes like folk singers, and sings love songs like union songs, and writes union songs like love songs, and wants to slow dance and stand on tables, all at the same time. www.forteastern.com

Songsmiths Split Seconds are riding high on the release of their second record Rest & Relocation. Gathering much critical acclaim and deep love for singles Relocation Blues and Any Minute Now the band mine a vein of galloping, lyrical Australian pop. www.facebook.com/splitsecondss

But wait, there’s more:

Mick Thomas has just released his new single ‘Damo’s Working In The Mines’ and you can grab a copy of the limited edition vinyl, not to mention limited edition hi-vis vests emblazoned with the lyric ‘Doin’ the Biz in High Vis’ from the show. Wear your new vest to the game and don’t get lost in the crowd!

Sons Of The East EP Launch with Special Guests

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00PM

Sons of the East are an indie-folk band from the Northern Beaches of Sydney Australia, comprised of Nic Johnston, Dan Wallage and Jack Rollins [who once tamed an emu].

Their sound is a motley acoustic-electric mix driven by soulful vocals, resulting in modern alternative folk that draws on everything from Neil Young and Johnny Cash to Fleetwood Mac and The Kinks but somehow winds up feeling like home. In other words... it's damn good. Intimate, soulful and cinematic, Sons Of The East tracks have been placed in a number of campaigns, films and iPod playlists.

Working off what they call the ‘tear-jerkers’ and the ‘boot-stompers’, the Sons’ legendary live show has made them a favourite of venues and music festivals through out Australia.

Sons Of The East’s first EP - released in 2013 - debuted at #10 on the Australian Album iTunes chart and earned the band a place on Spotify Australia’s viral 50, singles on the JJJ Hitlist, and praise from local and international heavyweights alike. This has created a strong following for the band internationally, with North America and Canada being their main markets.

In 2015 Sons Of The East released their 2nd EP Already Gone, an 8-track follow up record that again charted in the top 10 Australian Album iTunes charts and launched a highly successful national tour. In 2016 the band further demonstrated their diverse songwriting abilities in a collaboration with U.S. based DJ producers BUNT, with the release of the track Coming Home. The song earned a top 50 spot in the U.S. Spotify Viral Charts in it's first week of release.

Sons Of The East are currently working on their third EP and will be touring nationally in late 2016.

Much like Willy Wonka in the first part of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, like Christian Bale in the first part of The Dark Knight Rises, like the titular vehicle in Dude, Where's My Car?, Sydney quartet THE SNOWDROPPERS have been mysteriously absent for the majority of 2016. This October will see them scuttingly briefly from their hidey-holes, four our more shows on the cusp of their ten year anniversary.

At the behest and sponsorship of Sydney's YOUNG HENRYS brewery, the band will be playing four back-to-back Friday nights this October in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne & Newcastle, celebrating the eventual release of their first live album/DVD/documentary recorded on the packed out Gluttons for Punishment tour. Six piece tambourine boogie-band THE PERSIAN DRUGS will be helping to swirl each Friday night into a stomping vortex of dance, delight, and devilry.

At the Brightside in Brisbane, Newtown Social club in Sydney, Gasometer in Melbourne, Wickham Park Hotel in Newcastle, these intimate shows will likely sell out once again. So shake off the working week, gather your friends, dress in your finest and prepare for FRIDAY NIGHTS WITH THE SNOWDROPPERS.

Aeso Studio presents a night of sonic landscapes, auditory worlds and pictureless films with Terminal Sound System, Go Tsushima and Lara & Jem.

Terminal Sound System is a project of musician/producer Skye Klein. An amorphous mix of electronica, post-rock, dub, doom metal and more, this is music for the spaces between moments; quantum timeshards, proto-apocalyptic hymns and love songs for robots.

Go Tsushima joins us from Osaka (JP), where he is active in bands including Baikapanik, JIKU55 and Psychadelic Desert. His solo work consists of glitchy improvised guitar and electronics, driving psychedelic waves of sound.

Lara and Jem make soundtracks to South Australian desert horror films. They make music from strings and found metal.

Poison City & Wildfire Pres. Nation Blue with Miss Destiny & Batpiss

Tickets $20+BF. Doors 8.00 PM

The Nation Blue are proud to present not one, but two albums containing a total of 29 new songs. That¹s two albums, not a double album. No one needs a double album. It¹s their Use Your Illusion I and II. The dark and the light.

The Nation Blue are 20 years old this November. From playing the same three venues in Hobart for 4 years to moving to Melbourne and playing the same three venues for 16, The Nation Blue have knocked holes in a lot of structures; amps, walls, roofs, hearts, heads and charts. Not music charts. Ah, just medical.
In fact, despite being asked to play with a bunch of reputable and interesting bands over the years, The Nation Blue is largely a failure. A big, self sabotaging, deal declining, rapidly ageing, radio-proof, scene-less anomaly, who has only survived due to the sheer bloody mindedness of its members who refused to cash in on popular nu-movements or wear stove-pipes and go screamo or pick up synths or turn down or stop playing even when only 4 people pay to stand in a room that holds 400 and then 2 of those people get kicked out for dancing while the other 2 make off with some of the merch at an unoccupied desk….

It takes serious commitment or to write music and play it to people for so long. To stay a course both deeply unpopular and at times well received. It’s not self-deprecation, its just reality. Things change. The band’s whole existence has been a dichotomy; mining the island while embracing the mainland, retaining the noise while learning to craft songs, rapid weight gain and an increased physical intensity that requires brutal movements, working real jobs whilst regularly touring.
And on work The Nation Blue have worked really hard, but also coasted, relying so heavily on muscle memory and luck that some gigs have resembled public interventions or even military hazing. Mistakes tallied and amplified up around the 120 decibel range in thick, vulgar, atonal brown bricks of sound.

In recent years the band has operated bi-annually. A couple benefits here and a couple of house shows there. No direction or care. Just kind of stumbling along in an elderly stupor.

Following their last album in 2009, Rising Waters, it felt like the band was over and the three members splintered into new musical endeavours (Harmony, High Tension, Adalita Band, King Cannons, Pale Heads). Then Tim Brennan from Tym Guitars / Records in Brisbane sent an email to a mouldy address that awoke the bloated flannel wreck. He asked for one simple song and upon the other side of performing that task, the band decided that it wasn’t as unpleasant as expected and the Stockholm Syndrome of the past receded like their hairlines and the three former captives agreed to write another. And another.

So fast forward a couple of years and The Nation Blue are proud to present not one, but two albums containing a total of 29 new songs. That’s two albums, not a double album. No one needs a double album. It’s their Use Your Illusion I and II. The dark and the light.
Recorded by Mike Deslandes at the Kyneton Mechanics Institute over two January sessions in 2015 & 2016, these albums are gloriously unfashionable. Booming, loud, dark and simple.

It’s more than you wanted, and far more than you need.

The fire keeps burning at PBS 106.7FM’s monthly ska, rocksteady and early reggae party Jamaica Jump-Up with the party set to hit The Gasometer Hotel once again on Saturday, October 22. With an epic six weeks between Jump-Ups, our selectors will be rarin’ to unleash the best of their collections to shake up the dancefloor and The Moonhops will be ready for a massive live performance.

This month, we are stoked to welcome back Mr Rick Howe who, since his last Jamaica Jump-Up appearance, has become a regular on the PBS airwaves with his brand new program Riddim Yard – a bass heavy journey from the tenement yards of Kingston, to the sound systems of the UK. We are also excited that Empress Ellie B, a collector of original Jamaican vinyl specialising in sexy, slow roots riddims as well as spacey melodic dub, will be making her Jump-Up debut! Also on the line-up is the dancefloor-dominating Coco Brown whose unwavering ability to deliver killer tunes will keep the vibes ripe into the early hours of the morning.

Plus, our residents Mohair Slim (Blue Juice) and Jesse I (Babylon Burning) will throw down some of their finest vinyl from their collections for the dancefloor as Kilmarnock Steve takes charge of the formalities!

As usual, door sales only, so get down early! Party starts at 9pm, til stumps at 3am!

Shining Bird 'Black Opal' Album Launch with Special Guests

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Shining Bird is an experimental pop band from the coastal town of Austinmer, NSW Australia.

Originally formed as a studio project in 2012, they released the Shade of the Sea EP, followed by their debut album ‘Leisure Coast’ on Spunk Records in 2013. The album received widespread acclaim for its unique brand of Australiana-infused dream pop. On the back of strong reviews from publications such as Rolling Stone, Russh and the Sydney Morning Herald, as well as earning Album of the Week on ABC’s Radio National, ‘Leisure Coast’ helped propel Shining Bird towards a new bunch of listeners.

Spunk launched the signing of the band with a clip to first single ‘Distant Dreaming’ that has been watched over 300,000 times on YouTube and was named Rage TV’s ‘Indie clip of the Week’.

Sydney’s FBi Radio listed ‘Distant Dreaming’ the third most played track of 2013.

After touring extensively in their own right, Shining Bird has played alongside acts such as Kurt Vile, Franz Ferdinand, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Drones, Father John Misty, and appeared at numerous festivals including Fairgrounds, Secret Garden, Sydney Festival, Melbourne Music Week and Newtown Festival. The band’s live shows earned them a finalist nomination for ‘Best Live Act’ in FBi’s Sydney Music, Art & Culture Awards in 2014.

For the past year the band have been making regular trips to the Blue Mountains of NSW to write and record new material. Trekking to remote lookouts and watching classic Australian films fueled the creative process. After much anticipation by fans, the band emerged with ‘Rivermouth’, a track steeped in Australian bush and coastal imagery, that reflects a maturity of songwriting and production. The track is filled with layers of detail that offer a different journey on every listen.

Tickets $13+BF/$16

Punk mates and DIYers Wet Lips and Cable Ties announce split 7" and extravagant launch party.

After a ripping first half of 2016 (including sold out headline shows and inexplicable support slots for international tours) both bands spent the winter months in a freezing warehouse/recording studio with Paul Maybury working on new records. With those records now nearing completion it felt right to release the first fruits of that labour together on a split 7" single. Wetters deliver a typically blistering two and half minute nugget in "Shame" while the Ties offer up a smouldering post-punk groove on "Cut Me Down".

To celebrate this occasion Wet Lips and Cable Ties will be joined by the sort of line up they could only dream about in their wildest dreams.

Witness the meteoric rise of admin punks Crop Top and the radiating energy and pulse of the mighty Taipan Tiger Girls. Keeping the fires burning right through til 3am will be dancefloor-filling extraordinaires SHOUSE and the incomparable HABITS DJs. PBS FM's Press Gang will be holding it down between bands.

Forever Ends Here 'Imagine This' Tour with Special Guests

Tickets $15+BF/$35+BF VIP. Doors 1.00 PM

On August 19, Sydney pop/rockers Forever Ends Here released their highly anticipated debut album titled ‘Imagine This’. Fresh off the road from supporting Canadian band Simple Plan, Forever Ends Here will hit the road on their own headlining tour in January 2017.

The four young 20-somethings from Sydney’s North Shore dropped the first teaser of their full length in February (2016) with the release of ‘Chapters’. In May (2016), the band released their second single, ‘Search The Night’, to fans without warning – the accompanying music video shot on Sydney’s famous Harbour.

Since the band’s inception in 2011, Forever Ends Here – featuring Brothers Luke (Vocals / Guitar) and Kane McChesney (Drums), Mav Burnett (Bass) and Arran Barker (Guitar) – have matured musically since their 2013 release of the ‘From Where I’d Rather Be’ EP. Having garnered support slots with the likes of Simple Plan, Tonight Alive, Short Stack, Hands Like Houses and Neck Deep the band have amassed a solid fan base with four of their own headlining tours under their belt and over 17,000 Facebook likes.

‘Imagine This’ has been three years in the making. “We've really grasped the importance of doing what feels right to us,” Luke says. “We're writing songs that make us feel good and I think that's the most important thing you can do.”

“The album feels much more cohesive, it feels more progressive and it’s a work that we are more proud of than anything we have released in the past,” says Kane.

In the space of five short years, the four piece have amassed a following that rivals the local scene that’s flooded with aspiring pop-punk bands.

Forever Ends Here have always maintained a reputation for their fun and energetic live shows, the the59thsound.com website describing their performance “without a single flaw”.

“Forever Ends Here shows have always been about the energy and the vibe,” says Kane.

“We spend so much time putting together new and exciting set lists and song arrangements,” adds Luke. “We do everything we can to make sure you have the best time”.

Big Creature 'Talk' Launch with Residual & MYAMI

Tickets $8+BF/$10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

"Big Creature will be launching their 2nd EP, “Talk” at the Gasometer Hotel on September 28. “Talk” (the song and the EP) deals with some pretty heavy personal themes in the lyrics through the lens of a sort of 80s pop-timism which stems from an obsession with Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, Tears For Fears, Prince and co. At first the lyrical content may seem at odds with the overall mood of the music but part of the goal of the EP is to examine loss and pain in a hopeful light.

Sonically, the music draws heavily from the artists mentioned above, as well as contemporary artists such as Passion Pit, M83 & Phoenix. The songs brimming with sparkling synths, 80s horn stabs and scratchy, syncopated funk guitars.

The release of “Talk” also marks a second beginning for the band with the addition of drummer Lachy Wyatt and multi-instrumentalists Ezekiel Fenn and Dan Whalan to the lineup.”

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.00PM

The story of ‘Sojourn’ - the highly anticipated debut album from 8 piece funk/fusion outfit Pickpocket, is somewhat of an epic tale. Written by bandleader and bass player Craig Strain over the span of 10 years and 3 continents, it culminated in Melbourne at the end of 2015 when the band finally entered the studio to begin the recording process. Taking listeners on a journey from 70’s inspired ‘ghetto grooves’ to modern neo soul swagger, ‘Sojourn’ manages to tread a fine line between feel good funk music and honest artistic expression. Choosing to launch the album at the Gasometer Hotel on Sunday 25th September, Pickpocket will be joined by fellow funksters Lake Minnetonka and jam band extraordinaire Yarra Banks for what is set to be a night of deep grooves and exciting improvisation.

With over 500 gigs under their belts – 4 European tours (yes 4!) and 2 albums. The Sydney four piece don’t know the meaning of being idle.

The band are pleased to announce that a brand new single and album is looming large plus a bunch of live dates to boot.

Caravãna Sun headed West to Fremantle, WA and started recording album #3 with Joel Quartermain (Meg Mac/Eskimo Joe) at the helm. This April they release the first single EYE OF THE STORM from the forthcoming new album.

"Eye Of The Storm represents the struggle of leading a life away from the person you love. While frustration, anxiety and angst mask your emotions, in the depths of your heart you’ll never let go” - Luke Carra ( Vocals/Guitar)

Quartermain and Caravãna Sun focused on producing a contemporary sound to enhance their eclectic surf/dub/rock fusion.

The new album was born out of the band’s connection to their home, land and sea.

Their endless and unconventional touring circuit to rural communities has directly shaped the foundations of the new record.

Midnight Oil’s DIY approach to music and touring provided a major source of inspiration for the album, specifically their Blackfella/Whitefella Tour of remote Indigenous communities with Warumpi Band in 1986.

Caravãna Sun’s fifth and biggest overseas tour to date is set for July/August this year. Launching the new album, the band are set to play prestigious festivals throughout the UK including Boomtown Fair, Boardmasters Festival, Electric Beach Festival and Europe including Zandstock Festival and Young Art Festival - Netherlands.

CREATIVE ADULT (USA) WITH Masses, White Walls & Chelsea Bleach

Tickets $12+bf / $15 on the door. Doors 8pm

Bay Area post punks Creative Adult stream their latest single 'Heal', prior to the release of their sophomore album and subsequent whirlwind world touring.

'Heal' demonstates Creative Adult's ability to further forward traditional rock music through layers and layers of wah, reverb, delay sifted on top of a rolling bassline. It's the soundtrack to an overcast day, windows closed, sitting on your bed watching the pavement dry up.

The band has confirmed additional side shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Newcastle and Canberra, outside of their appearances at Weekender Fest + I Love Life (Sydney only).

Creative Adult's sophomore album 'Fear of Life' will be released in early August through Run For Cover + Cooking Vinyl Australia.

Tickets on sale for Creative Adult headline shows on Fri 8 July at 9am through Oztix.

Al Dobson Jr (22A Music, Rhythm Section) with 30/70, Silent Jay & Jace XL, Man Made Mountain

Tickets $10+BF Early Bird. Doors 8.00PM

South London based artist, producer and beat maker, Al Dobson Jr is a rising enigmatic figure on the worldwide underground music scene. Living that basement cats lifestyle, Jr explores rhythmic expression and other abstract truth in his raw and unique productions which traverse the boundaries between hip-hop, jazz, funk and broken beat.

His collaboration on 22a, debut 12" described as "smudged instrumentals, effortlessly spanning moments in deep jazz, electronic and African rhythms" was critically acclaimed. This sudden success inspired Jr to release more of his home-brewed beats on vinyl and reinstated his belief in the format.

As one of the original members of the People Situation Ensemble, Jr has been a key figure in bringing real jazz to a new wave of music lovers. Notable releases on labels 22a, Izwid, Sey Music, Jr Sounds and Rhythm Section International have also garnered support far and wide from the likes of George Clinton to Dennis Ayler.

Jr's productions and unique DJ sets from obscure yet dance floor friendly grooves & unreleased dubplates to classic jazz & funk have made him heavily sought after. Since stepping on the scene in 2014, he has quietly established himself as one of the UK's most promising underground producers.

His debut full length on Rhythm Section Int. is the album Rye Lane Volume ii & iii (2016)
