Lucy Roleff 'This Paradise' Launch with Krakatau, Mallee Songs & James Tom (DJ)

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8PM

Recalling the sublime fingerpicked purity of folk singers-past such as Bridget St John and Linda Perhacs, estimable Melbourne folk artist Lucy Roleff launches her debut album This Paradise at The Gasometer on Thursday, July 28.

Released on Melbourne label Lost And Lonesome, This Paradise was recorded with Tony Dupé (Holly Throsby, Grand Salvo) at his home studio in a hundred year-old church in South Gippsland; Tony and his partner Claire Deak adding some subtle strings, bowed glockenspiel, pump organ and cymbal washes to Lucy’s deft nylon string, harp and woodwind compositions.

The first single from the album 'Aspen' has been gathering praise from reliable sources — Happy called the track an icy, crystallised piece of chamber folk; delicate and piercing as a stalactite”, while Scottish blog 17 Seconds suggested “Comparisons could be drawn with the likes of Joanna Newsom, Nick Drake and Cowboy Junkies’ Margo Timmins”, adding “This is one of the best things I have heard this year”

Lucy will be joined by special guests Krakatau, Mallee Songs and James Tom.

Benny Walker 'Oh No You Don't' Launch With Special Guests

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 8PM

Hailing from regional Victoria, Indigenous singer/songwriter Benny Walker is the real deal. His love songs and epic tales are mixed with passion for the land, the people, summer vibes and deep grooves are the elements that reach the soul.

Latest offering ‘Oh No You Don’t' was written at Walker’s home in Moama and recorded at Way Of The Eagle studios in Melbourne with ARIA Award winning Producer Jan Skubiszewski (The Cat Empire, John Butler Trio, Dan Sultan). ‘Oh No You Don’t’ heralds in a new direction in sound for Benny Walker. Mixing Blues and Roots with a contemporary soul vibe the song sees a strengthening of the vocal and its range.

The song is written as a triumph over, and a big "F you" to mental illness. Feeling that you've learnt to, for the most part, be one step ahead of anxiety, knowing the familiar warning signs and using your own experience to deal with it.

Benny has performed alongside some of Australia’s finest, including Archie Roach, Blue King Brown, Tim Rogers and Vika and Linda Bull, and was awarded Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Award for Best New Talent in 2012. In recent years he has performed at some of the country’s best-loved festivals, including Moomba, Woodford, St Kilda Festival and Blue Mountains Music Festival, and has also taken the plunge into the Canadian festival circuit. An accomplished solo performer, Walker is regularly joined on stage by his band, where he replaces his acoustic guitar with a Telecaster and indulges his passion for the big blues-rock sound.

On his 2013 album Sinners and Saints’ Walker joined forces with ARIA Award winning producer Shane O’Mara, drawing on O'Mara's expertise to bring out a more organic, textured sound. The album gained praise from the musical community.

LAWRENCE ARABIA (NZ) ALBUM LAUNCH WITH HIDEOUS TOWNS & MOUTH TOOTH

Tickets: $10+bf / $15 on the door. Doors 8pm

One of New Zealand's finest songwriters Lawrence Arabia releases his fourth album 'Absolute Truth' on July 8 through Flying Nun Records. Lost And Lonesome is excited to present this special one-off Australian show at Melbourne's Gasometer Hotel with special guests Hideous Towns and Mouth Tooth.

Born in the “Garden City” of Christchurch, New Zealand, in 1981 (the year the Springbok tour divided the country, and that The Clean debuted with the single Tally Ho!), a youthful James Milne served an illustrious indie-rock apprenticeship touring the US as bassist for Auckland-based pop group The Brunettes, and as drummer for Ryan McPhun’s Ruby Suns.

And then, as Reginald Dwight made way for the musical entity that was Elton John, and David Jones blossomed into David Bowie, so plain old James Milne ceded to the Übermensch that has become one of New Zealand’s finest contemporary songwriters and performers – the celebrated singer of songs that is Lawrence Arabia.

STRINE WHINE presents this fiendish lineup of local legends for the inaugural Strine Whine Residency.

Comin’ along at a particularly verdant time for Australian music, Strine Whine’s been documenting riveting artists and booming scenes around the country for a little over a year. Featuring in-depth profiles, incisive reviews, and comprehensive commentary on all that’s live and recorded and vividly stoking the imagination, the past 12 months have cemented Strine Whine as an essential pillar in the grand cathedral of local music.

Get down to the Gaso Tuesday nights in August. See a band you love. Find another one to obsess about. Drive your passion up the wall and watch its perfect backflip down your throat into that sinking feeling that after the spectacle you’ve just witnessed, something has incomprehensibly, incontrovertibly changed. That’s why you’re here, innit? To celebrate something transcendental? 10 bucks for presales, 12 on the door. Buy a record, buy a zine. Take it all in. These shows are only happening once.

*In light of impending cuts to Community Radio, a percentage of Profits each will be donated to a different station each week.

Having spent the past two years deeply immersed in writing and recording, APES are finally ready to emerge from the depths with a distinctly developed sound and a long-awaited debut album, entitled “Stranger Than Strangers”, tucked under their collective arm.
With tracks such “Pull the Trigger” and “Dimension” already having had high
rotation spins on both triple j and the UK’s BBC Radio1, APES is the band to watch for any fans of rock past and present.
While taking a departure from their first EP Helluva (2013), APES have added a sense of maturity to their songwriting. Offering fans a new dynamic to their sound they still retain the raw power that had them invited to play with bands like Royal Blood, The Darkness, Band of Skulls and Fidlar to name a few.
The recording sessions now completed, APES have shifted their focus and ready to get back on the road and bring the fruits of their labour to the public. Looking to build upon their already palpable live reputation, APES promise to re-capture and engage the audience with good times all round and bring the energy of their new sound into the live forum.

Stranger Than Strangers is due for release in October 2016

Harry Permezel will be setting the scene with a fantastic acoustic set, and will be giving the beers in your stomach a reason to make your feet move.

Templar, after coming hot off the press at Animal House which he packed out, will then join up with Niche and reset the rules of rap and boss your ears. If you survive all of that, you can then join 4 dudes who all simultaneously set fire to their instruments as a direct result of playing them.

Wet your pants to Brunga's Band showcasing some of their surfy new stuff, coupled with a trombone solo here or there, and large, large choruses. Serving all of this is the Gasometer located on Smith Street, Collingwood, who are renowned for the best tunes and coldest beers.

Momentary Records 12" Launch

Tickets $10. Doors 9:00PM.

To celebrate their inaugural 12” release, Ben Houghton’s ‘Beta Blocker’ EP, Momentary Records is bringing together some of Melbourne’s finest selectors for a night of full spectrum electronic music, spanning from classic disco burners & deep house jams to the heady sounds of Berlin and Detroit techno.

Featuring some of Melbourne’s best local talent including Ben Houghton (live), Pocock, Cool Room DJs, Perno Inferno, & Emelyne, the infamous band room at The Gasometer is primed and ready to host you on a journey through the sweat, tears and joy that house & techno was made for.

Headlining the night with a reworked live set, refined since playing at Dimensions Festival in 2015, Ben Houghton has been quietly gaining attention locally and abroad with his deep and driving brand of house.

Pocock is one of the brains behind killer parties Daydreams and Moon Palace. He’s got a natural knack for the dancefloor, laying down an eclectic mix that always seems to be in the right place at the right time.

Cool Room DJs will be taking things into the late shift, with an ear for heavy hitting techno and big room house tracks that have become a staple of their excellent monthly night.

Perno Inferno knows how to get things rocking with an infectious and unstoppable mix of dusty classic house tracks and all that is good and funky in the world.

Finally caving to popular demand, Emelyne steps behind the decks on warm up duties. As monthly presenter of The Blend on PBS and long-time behind the scenes go-getter, she’s got Melbourne’s music scene lined up for greatness.

Tram Cops with Barcelos & Scout (Upstairs)

Gold Coin on the door. Doors 7.30PM

Tram Cops are a young 5 piece band from Melbourne. Born from the ashes of the bedroom pop project Laurence, Tram Cops retain a certain lofi charm, but much like the second Death Star, they are a louder, tighter and fully operational band. They have just released their debut EP which RIPE describes as 'filled with instantly enjoyable gems' and they are stringing together a few shows around Melbourne to celebrate.

Barcelos is the collaborative output of 5 musicians and friends from Melbourne. Sprouting many years ago, the band has spent much time formulating their inimitable brand of ambient indie rock. With a vast palate of inspiration, their influences span from the intricate song writing of Grizzly Bear and Alabama Shakes, to raucous guitar bands like Delta spirit and Foals, and even pushing into the emotional realm of Gang of Youths and Jeff Buckley.

For the past year Barcelos have been busy building a reputation playing live across Melbourne with bands such as The Sand Dollars, Romeo Moon and Bears, to name just a few. Their live show is built on an emotional and energetic exhibition of their song writing and musical prowess.

In 2016, Barcelos are looking to bring their music to the masses, with a double single planned for release in late September

SCOUT is a garage pop/psych rock prince.

TICKETS: $10 Door DOORS: 8pm

Melbourne psych folk four piece Cold Hands Warm Heart present their debut video created by acclaimed contemporary artist Zoe Scoglio. The video, as an extension of CHWH's recently released self-titled album, explores textures and the collision of the natural and urban environments, in this case of the Merri Creek. Capturing interactions with the elements and surrounds, from a native bee to storm-water drain waterfalls, images of the band's limbs and faces exude a serene elegance and simplicity. A visual and sonic meditation on our connection to the urban ecology that surrounds us, it's history and our place within it. CHWH have been developing their live set as a continual song cycle, interspersing found sounds and lever harp with synth and pop sensibilities. An ever evolving performance. Poetic reflections on our synergy with nature. A magnetising deep listening experience.

Jack Carty 'Home State' Launch with Emily Barker & Jordan Millar

TICKETS $20+BF/$25 on the door. DOORS 8PM

Many things are born of new marriages. Matching linen, tiny humans and for Australian troubadour Jack Carty, a new album: Home State.

Over the past few years Jack’s talent for melody, wit and a gorgeous turn of phrase has taken him around the world and established his reputation as a writer and performer of incredible depth and imagination. Don’t miss this chance to see Jack perform in an intimate setting and a duo format, joined onstage by friend and collaborator Jordan Millar.

Home State was performed, recorded and produced by Carty in his little apartment in Brisbane’s Red Hill, in pockets of time between, his upstairs neighbours’ tap-dancing and his new wife Natasha’s Netflix addiction.

It is clear that - although Carty’s trademark honesty and hopefulness will never desert him - the lovelorn boy of One Thousand Origami Birds, Break Your Own Heart and Esk has evolved into a man of quiet confidence with a renewed excitement for stories and songwriting. Home State is undoubtedly his most accomplished record to date, in a growing catalogue of critically acclaimed releases.

Over the past year, Carty has toured Australia with Katie Noonan, Darren Hanlon, and Ingrid Michaelson; completed his very own, hugely successful ‘Intimate & By Request’ tour; and stunned audiences across The U.K, Europe and New Zealand. In September, he swapped the stage for a suit to marry his illustrator/designer sweetheart before rounding out 2015 with a biannual APRA Professional Development Award for his musical efforts to date.

In 2016, Carty has already crossed the ditch for a New Zealand tour and will spend autumn touring The U.K/Europe (making a coveted appearance at Spain’s Primavera festival along the way). He’ll return home in June for an extensive regional tour with friend and favourite Josh Pyke before the release of Home State on August 5 and a headline national tour not to be missed.

FREEWYO - Illest Album Tour with special guests

Tickets $25 + BF / $30 on door. 2 shows - All Ages: doors 1pm & Over 18: doors 8pm.

Freewyo, (otherwise known as Wyo) is a half Australian, half South African rapper from Melbourne, Australia.

He does not tread lightly, and his music is simply not for those with sensitive and “easily offended” ears. It is rugged, it is street and it is controversial. Yet amazingly, he has found a way to make it play seriously smoothly through your speakers…

His strengths range from his fast flow raps to his shockingly quick witted freestyle rap ability. He also happens to carry a unique and highly charismatic crowd control ability which can seemingly turn a dead room in to a wild party.

Because of this, his 2016 marketing plan, his previous ‘East Coast House Party Tour’, and his strong consistency with his music releases and videos (some of which have even reached over 200 thousand views within 4 days). Freewyo’s fan base is accelerating at an average rate of 2.5 thousand fans per week on his Facebook page alone.

Freewyo is so gratefully also growing with his fans on a personal level as well. Most likely because of his highly controversial and honest lyrics about his up bringing, previous incarceration and lifestyle. Which a lot of the kids of this generation can find a way to relate to.

After releasing his second studio album “Illest” in March 2016 which solidified his place in Australian Hip Hop with a sledgehammer. Freewyo is already coming at his loyal fans with two new releases, including the “Way Too Fking Dope” E.P and the “I Don’t Give A Fk” Mixtape (in collaboration with “Filthy Fil”). These two releases are also being followed up with a collaboration performance with the notorious “Team Back Pack” in New York, USA in June, 2016. And a his first national tour around Australia (2016).

With a band known for the quality of its musicianship, and their reputation for performing unique interpretations of their material with every show, this is one not be missed.

Fan Girl Double Single Launch with Dreamcoat, Tom Prettys & Young Dylan (DJ)

Tickets $10+BF ($15+BF with 7")/$12 on the door. Doors 8.00PM

Fresh off the heels of a packed debut gig at The Curtin, Fan Girl are ready to once again take the stage and viciously serenade the masses. Now one of the most hyped bands in Melbourne, Fan Girl will bring their intensely visceral, worryingly unhinged and incredibly catchy live show to The Gaso in support of their upcoming singles ‘NoLita’ & ‘Disappear’. Come and witness delusion of grandeur at its sweatiest.

Dreamcoat started in late 2014 with Kieran Ebert, Brayden McDonald, Costa Hagi and Jon Chng writing pop songs tainted with their love affair with technical harmony and complex rhythms. Dreamcoat is a melting pot of sounds, musical ideas and structures and are seen as one of Melbourne's finest Pysch Folk/Alternative Pop exports. After a string of successful singles, their debut EP is in post and set for release in the coming months.

Harnessing an era, Tom Prettys draw on disparate influences to create something that is at once jarring and cohesive, manic and engaging. Their brooding sound drives a take on early post-punk that is engrossing in a live setting.

The Do Yo Thangs take over The Gasometer Hotel on Thursday September 8th to launch their much anticipated debut EP, One Plus One.

One Plus One is a collection of sensual slow jams and bumping future soul dominated by rich, four-voice harmonies released on HopeStreet Recordings. The debut release is the result of many years of soul searching for songwriter/drummer/singer Hugh Rabinovici and his right-hand-lady, vocalist Audrey Powne (Au Dré). The two met some years ago in the drab corridors of jazz school. The combination of Hugh’s writing and Audrey’s vocals immediately gelled and they soon formed a cohort of neo-soul brethren.

The Do Yo Thangs will be accompanied on the night by silky soulstress WILSN, syth/pop poster boy Dx Heaven and banger aficionado DJ Big Rig (The Harpoons).

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.

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 6.00PM

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.

We want to thank all of you for the support and love we've been shown at every gig, every bar and every alleyway you've found us in.
To the band: Thank you for the lolz, the sik beatz, the diva antics and the constant love and loyalty. We love you and you'll never be rid of us WE WILL WEAR YOUR SKIN.

Coming to a town near-ish you, come and say toodles, dance, drink, and chuck some money into the "Get Gemma Out Of Jail" fund. Hopefully we're going to need it.

You haven't seen the last of us yet...

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.

TICKETS $10+BF/$15 ON THE DOOR. DOORS 5PM

Country-pop’s worst nightmare, The Bakersfield Glee Club, launch their third album ‘Where My Heart Broke’ on July 24 at Collingwood’s Gasometer Hotel, with special guests Hannah & Jessie Lee starting at 4pm.

‘Where My Heart Broke’] confirms the Glee Clubs determination to restore traditional country’s rightful place at the altar of the genre’s broad church and is a sermon for the country faithful longing for hard-core honky-tonk and an occasional cry-in-your-beer classic. The track list reads like tribute to the drinkers, the losers, the cheaters and the lovers lost whose stories will be live and faithfully rendered in the hands of these barroom veterans on the evening.

Leave a bit of leather from your dancing boots on the floor or take a seat at the bar for a night of toe-tappers including salutes to Bakersfield’s dearly departed, a little western swing and a whole lot of country.

Leaps & Bounds Festival Presents, Living Legends - Phil Kakulas

Tickets $25+BF/$30 on the door. Doors 6PM

He’s worked with the greatest songwriters this country’s ever produced, walking music’s unmarked tracks with the late David McComb and Grant McLennan and also one Mr. Paul Kelly. He’s rubbed shoulders with Johnny Cash,Smiths/Blur/Libertines producer Stephen Street, and was once bold enough to casually greet Lou Reed on a New York street.

He is PHIL KAKULAS and this year Leaps and Bounds celebrate his remarkable contribution to Australian music, his finely attuned ear and his sublime taste.

After playing in the earliest line up of The Triffids (leaving in 1979) Kakulas returned to collaborate with David McComb on four well-received tracks on final studio album The Black Swan in 1989. After making a strong instrumental and songwriting contribution to the Peggy Van Zalm-fronted Martha’s Vineyard in the late ‘80s, he found promptly reactivated a holiday project he’d started with McComb.

27 years later, after four original EPs, five studio albums, a four disc retrospective boxset and two ARIA nominations later The Blackeyed Susans are still here. Kakulas has produced their records, and steered the ship, aided and abetted by the songwriting smarts and utterly gorgeous, glorious vocals of Mr Rob Snarski.

Kakulas is a man of quiet taste, a drolly-reserved wit and an unfailing ear for the melodies that arise with the dimming of the day and the coming of the evening. He’s the master of hard liquor and soft music, the man who quietly conjures the spark for candles burning at both ends.

Join us July 17 as...

Alex Gow (Oh Mercy)
Rob McComb (Triffids)

Tickets $10 for PBS Members, $15 for Future Members. Doors 9.00PM

Last month we saw the dancefloor packed out right ‘til stumps – the sounds of Jamaican horns and whistles amplified throughout the Gasometer Hotel and vintage reggae, rocksteady and ska tunes cranking all night long. It just keeps getting better and better – so now we’re back to do it all over again as Jamaica Jump-Up returns for her sixteenth outing on Saturday, July 16!

This month PBS 106.7FM’s Jamaica Jump-Up falls on the final night of the City of Yarra’s Leaps and Bounds Music Festival – so we’re banding together to throw one big closing night party.

Local rocksteady and early reggae luminaries The Moonhops are back in full force to hit the stage for a live set for the occasion. Joining them will be PBS DJs Mohair Slim (Blue Juice), Stryka D (formerly Break The Chain) and Miss Goldie (Boss Action) plus Fabulous Fez and Miss Fee with 100% vinyl selections. Making a mighty return to the mic for MC duties will be the one and only Kilmarnock Steve.

Get on down to the Gaso nice and early to get warmed up before we move the fire to the dancefloor. 9pm-3am.

Joseph Liddy & The Skeleton Horses Pres. 'The Big Sarong Tour' with Hot Palms and Stolen Violin AKA Jordan Ireland and the Purple Awekestra

(UPSTAIRS) Tickets $10. Doors 7.00PM

Sensually precise groove infected music emanating from Sydney’s inner west, Joseph Liddy and the Skeleton Horse as it is today formed in 2014 and is made up of anywhere from 9-12 members. With the release of album length ep ‘the god is named Abrasax’ in late 2014, the band became known locally for it’s funky fuzzed out late night dance marathons in local clubs, bars and festivals and as the band has developed, they have expanded their sound laying down more uplifting rhythms infused with jazz harmony and technicolour blue eyed soul.

Rising from the ashes of former projects and sharing/borrowing members from many other musical endeavours (The Middle East, The Fighting League, The Mountains, Matt Corby, Alby, Bree Tranter, Ace Romeo, Meat World, Skeleton Jack, The Andy Golledge band, Frequent Flyers Club, Stolen Violin, Twin Fires, Lacey Cole and the Lazy Colts, Thelma plum, Tuka and more), the band is known for its proficiency of musicianship and wild, jammed out improvisational compositions that feature regularly in their live performances transferring contagiously to all-too-willing-to-dance audiences.

Preaching themes of universal love and equality through their smooth tunes and diverse musical community, Joseph Liddy and the Skeleton Horse have cemented themselves as one of the country’s most compelling live and recorded musical experiences.

The band’s latest release ‘The Big Sarong’ was recorded during 2015-2016 and is now set for release and ready for you to own and take home either on wax, CD, or digitally through their friends at Gaga digital.

Joseph Liddy is touring the album July 2016 playing in Byron Bay, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, and Sydney with a huge line up of local acts.

TNSIAJSW, now in its second season, has shared over 40 incredible, and often captivating, performances. To celebrate this tiny milestone and in a polite effort to ram these great performances and songs down your neck, we’re putting on a huge mid-year show featuring a mind-blowing assortment of excellent Melbourne singer/songwriters on the 14th of July at the Gasometer Hotel, Collingwood.

'The Night Sky Is A Jewellery Store Window' is a web-based video series that showcases excellent singer/songwriters, filmed in a humble and beautiful studio in Melbourne’s North. TNSIAJSW offer honest and unbridled performances of songs that you most likely haven’t heard yet but will be happy you did.

We film and record music that is performed in ‘one take’ in an effort to capture the true essence of a song and its performance. It’s raw and unbridled, with all the wobbly bits that can help make a song truly memorable. Each artist performs on our old studio guitar named Zach Glickman and have been accompanied, until recently, by our loyal and sweet studio Doggie, Jerry Lee, who has sadly passed away.

Tickets $12+BF (for one show) or $20 +BF (for both shows, presale only)/$15 on door. Doors 8.00pm.

The Song and Stories nights offer a genuine insight in to the craft of song writing from 20 different perspectives in various stages of artists’ careers. Some of the participants are still in high school while others have been writing and performing music for more than four decades. The focus of the night is essentially is the song-writing process and the stories that inspired something which then goes on to have a life of its own.

Each evening will features ten songwriters delivering a total of 30 songs over two sets. Some of the songwriters generally play solo while others will be performing without their band behind them for the first time. Five musicians will be on stage at the same time, taking a turn to introduce and play a song in three rounds.

This is the second year that the Songs and Stories series is part of the Leaps and Bounds Music Festival. The format proved to be popular with both audiences and performers last year and its return anticipated. Programmed as an early week event on a Tuesday, the art of listening is not overly commanding, especially when presented with some moving and entertaining preludes to songs and melodies. A sense of camaraderie also unfolds on stage between the songwriters during the rounds as anecdotes, heartaches and laughs are shared.

Appearing over the two weeks are the following Melbourne based songwriters who have a rock, indie, pop, folk, electronic and country musical persuasion including Alice Sky, Amaya Laucirica, Arun Roberts, Ben Mastwyk, Ben Salter, Bob Harrow, Brooke Russell, Charm of Finches, Chris Pickering, Elizabeth Barker, Emily Ulman, Fiona Lee Maynard, Gareth Ed Lindsay, Jack Howard, James Henry, Jim Lawrie, Lachlan Bryan, Laura Imbruglia, Liam Gerner and Quang

Between showcasing their latest single ‘Milo Tin’ to the rest of the country, they’ve been recording a brand new EP with Steven Schram (Paul Kelly, Eagle & the Worm) and now they’re ready to test those songs out on hometown audiences every Wednesday throughout July at The Gasometer Hotel.

Tiny Little Houses have picked up massive praise from around the world, with picking up glowing coverage from NME, Consequence of Sound, and The Needle Drop as well as frequent Triple J play at home. To sweeten the upcoming residency, Tiny Little Houses have invited some of their best and most talented friends to support. Each night will bring fresh energy into Tiny Little Houses’ already-intimate mix, whether it’s the hypnotising rock of Gabriella Cohen, the elastic guitar pop of Alex Lahey, the slick electropop of Ella Thompson, the woozy jangle of Good Morning, and more.

This’ll be the last chance to see Tiny Little Houses’ mesmerising songs in such a personal space before things inevitably heat up for the band. For $12 online or $15 on the door, you’re not gonna wanna miss it.

Leaps and Bounds Music Festival & APRA AMCOS present, SONGS AND STORIES – SONGWRITERS IN THE ROUND

Tickets $12+BF (for one show) or $20 +BF (for both shows, presale only)/$15 on door. Doors 8.00pm.

The Song and Stories nights offer a genuine insight in to the craft of song writing from 20 different perspectives in various stages of artists’ careers. Some of the participants are still in high school while others have been writing and performing music for more than four decades. The focus of the night is essentially is the song-writing process and the stories that inspired something which then goes on to have a life of its own.

Each evening will features ten songwriters delivering a total of 30 songs over two sets. Some of the songwriters generally play solo while others will be performing without their band behind them for the first time. Five musicians will be on stage at the same time, taking a turn to introduce and play a song in three rounds.

This is the second year that the Songs and Stories series is part of the Leaps and Bounds Music Festival. The format proved to be popular with both audiences and performers last year and its return anticipated. Programmed as an early week event on a Tuesday, the art of listening is not overly commanding, especially when presented with some moving and entertaining preludes to songs and melodies. A sense of camaraderie also unfolds on stage between the songwriters during the rounds as anecdotes, heartaches and laughs are shared.

Appearing over the two weeks are the following Melbourne based songwriters who have a rock, indie, pop, folk, electronic and country musical persuasion including Alice Sky, Amaya Laucirica, Arun Roberts, Ben Mastwyk, Ben Salter, Bob Harrow, Brooke Russell, Charm of Finches, Chris Pickering, Elizabeth Barker, Emily Ulman, Fiona Lee Maynard, Gareth Ed Lindsay, Jack Howard, James Henry, Jim Lawrie, Lachlan Bryan, Laura Imbruglia, Liam Gerner and Quang Dinh.

Leaps and Bounds Music Festival presents, Georgia Fields & Phia - double single launch with Melbourne Indie Voices

Tickets $15+BF / $18 on door. Doors 7.30pm

Eclectic songbird Georgia Fields joins forces with art-pop melodist Phia for a Double Single Launch at The Gasometer Hotel on Sunday 3 July, for the 2016 Leaps & Bounds Festival.

Fields is celebrating the release of ‘Open Orange’, the stunning second single from her highly anticipated forthcoming album Astral Debris. Produced by acclaimed electronic composer Tim Shiel (Faux Pas; Bertie Blackman; Gotye), the lush and layered track features Phia on guest vocals and her trademark African kalimba.

Both hailing from Melbourne but living in separate corners of the world, Fields and Phia met randomly at a Paris open-mic night in 2011, with Phia having recently relocated to the cultural mecca of Berlin.

Now, with a slew of festival appearances and European touring under her belt, Phia has returned to her native Melbourne and is set to release the next single from her upcoming debut LP ‘The Ocean of Everything’ - mixed by Eli Crews (tUne-yArDs).

On Sunday 3 July, this Double Single Launch will see two consummate performers share The Gasometer stage – Fields accompanied by her full band, and Phia with producer/guitarist Josh The Cat – before joining together for an all-in finale of duets, collaborations, and surprise special guests.

DIET. 'Life Limbo' Afterparty with Lachlan Duthie, Templar & More.

Free Entry. Doors 8.00PM

Last week some something happened down a laneway in the Melbourne CBD at a place called SHEBEEN. A strange looking man with a haircut like Dizzy Gillespie in his prime opened up his pipes and took us on a journey through his messed up thoughts and deepest darkest secrets, including how shitty growing up is and how much of a lazy prick his bass player carl is… but he’s so god dam cute when he snores.

He goes by the name of "gitchag" or “rockstar” because he’s a god damn rockstar and its pretty rare when he ain’t doing rock star shit. He is the head man for a verrrryyyy verrrrryyyyy verrryyyyyy spicy rock band who go by the name of DIET.

Check out the new film clip as well for life limbo, its been a couple weeks since the filming was done and after a few attempts at getting an explanation of how the fuck ted got his ass inside dem tight sexy pants I still have more of an idea about why dan murphy murphys doesn’t stock buckfast. get it in there ya pricks.

They had so much god damn fun that they wanted to do it again at the gaso. This time they would love to welcome a few friends to join them to pleasure your eardrums and tingle you testies.

Great Outdoors- Dad's Oasis Launch with Gregor, Blank Statements & WORNG

Tickets $12 on the door. Doors 8.00pm

Following releases from Totally Mild, Free Time, Full Ugly, Milk Teddy, Lehmann B Smith, Velcro, etc, etc, it's not hard to see why it's taken Zach Schneider this long to finish something/anything of his own. Released under Great Outdoors, the debut album 'Dad's Oasis' comes to you like a hot broth just in time to warm these cold cold months. Come and celebrate with a rare performance from the full band. Out now on a limited run of vinyl via Popfrenzy.

Supports come from Gregor who have just put out their debut cassette on the legendary Chapter Music and have quickly solidified themselves as a must see/must hear band. We're also very lucky to be joined by a brand new band, 'Blank Statements'. A collaboration between members of Twerps, Dick Diver, etc, etc, etc. You really shouldn't miss one of their first shows together. Everyone in the group is brilliant. So be there early.
