Batpiss as a live experience is as grimy and visceral as you'd expect. They will propel you headfirst into a world of dim dive bars and the kind of gritty, disgruntled rock that could only spring out of Melbourne town in the here and now. Best catch them doin’ their noisey thing across Victoria through March and April, before unleashing this new LP via Poison City come winter time.

ILUKA 'Blue My Soul' Tour with Beautiful Beasts and Fever Land (UPSTAIRS)

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

This summer ILUKA unveils her more soulful side with her EP Blue My Soul. First finding national attention through triple j with the much loved ‘Paper Doll’, then solidified with the polished ‘12th of July’, ILUKA has come of age with this record moving effortlessly between retro pop and gospel soul. This is epitomised by lead single ‘Blue Jean Baby’, which captures the essence of summer - carefree and upbeat, but filled with longing nostalgia.

Inspired by her freewheeling travels, the music that ILUKA pours herself into creating is not just music for the sake of music. It is art for the soul's purpose. The songs were born in a Buddhist Monastery in South East Asia, took shape through a utopian human experiment in Southern India, and matured on the vast arid expanses of the American desert. ILUKA has looked to distant lands to capture the essence of movement, light and youthful yearning. As the words fall from her howling tongue they paint a time, a place and a landscape so wildly vivid her journey becomes just as much yours as it is experientially her own.

“I crave intensity and I crave wonder. In a world where people are almost afraid to feel, I want to make them feel something. Music out of all art forms has the ability to do that… I believe in the honesty of that.”

To celebrate the release ILUKA returns to the road in 2017 with her long-term backing band. Having honed her live performance opening for internationals including Allen Stone (US), Bahamas (Can), and Kitty, Daisy & Lewis (UK), and on major festival stages such as Woodford, it’ll take you directly to the soul place. Carried on a wave of wild fever lyrics, eclectic electrics, gospel choirs and burning vocals, conjuring a world of whirring visions and starry eyes.

Geelong based folk artist Olly Friend draws influence from Ben Howard, Daughter and Matt Corby to create an earnest, raw sonic that is truly endearing.

Forming his stagecraft on Melbourne’s famous Bourke Street, Friend came up alongside the likes of Woodlock, Pierce Brothers and Tash Sultana.

Vincent Sole (UPSTAIRS) with Special Guests Aeora, Yollks

Tickets $10+BF. Doors 8.00 PM

After making waves with 'The Game' across the blogosphere, Melbourne's Vincent Sole announces the impending release of his anthemic new single 'Deep End' plus two much anticipated debut headline shows.

Created in collaboration with Malcolm Besley (Northeast Party House, City Calm Down) 'Deep End' rises and falls gently, like a calm swell in the metaphorical water it references. Through it all, there's a pervading sense of strength and ambition through uncertainty at the crossroads of youth and adulthood. "[The song] tells a story about freestyling the rest of my teen years and taking a leap of faith, to lead my life into something much bigger." says Vincent Sole.

The 19-year-old wunderkind penned a management deal with 5/4 Entertainment (City Calm Down, Tkay Maidza) last year, preparing him for what is already shaping up to be a year of relentless goal-kicking. Previous single 'The Game' drew praise from outlets such as Stoney Roads, Purple Sneakers and Howl & Echoes, with Pilerats naming Sole as one of 17 acts to watch in 2017.

Australia’s favourite 2 x ARIA Award nominated musical misfits are back, breaking hearts and bones (mostly their own) after a ten-year long hiatus from the recording studio. With a new found vigour and a swag of new material, Butterfingers are officially back in the saddle and continuing to bend genres and the boundaries of good taste with a rare blend of obscenity, wit and charm.

After a massive return to the stage with an at capacity The Zoo over the weekend headlining the Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Butterfingers are thrilled to announce their new single 'Big Night Out' which is set to be unleashed on the world Friday March 10th. But the good news doesn't end there...the Brisbane legends will be heading out on a whirlwind national tour making stops in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in support of the new single.

With this being a very special limited capacity tour, fans will have the chance to grab fan presale tickets via www.butterfingers.info TODAY (Tuesday 14th of February) but must be signed up to the mailing to access.

GA Presales are available from Monday 20th of February.

Butterfingers’ new single ‘Big Night Out’ is the surprisingly upbeat summer anthem that details the tragic yet true events of lead singer Evil Eddie’s night on the town that left him hidden and physically trapped in a back alley with a broken spine.

Butterfingers are back - and there is no stopping them - much more to come...

Good Boy & Jarrow Split 7" Launch

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

It’s been a big 12 months for Good Boy. In December 2015, the three-piece’s debut single “Transparency” was added to high rotation on triple j and ended up 15th most-played song on the youth broadcaster. In January 2016, the band was announced as winners of the triple j unearthed Laneway Festival competition, opening the Brisbane Laneway main stage to a huge crowd. In March, they released their debut EP “No Love For Back Home”to a massive amount of love from critics and fans alike, playing to capacity crowds in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane on their EP launch tour. They also supported Viet Cong, Homeshake, British India, The John Steel Singers, Jonathan Boulet, Velociraptor, Palms, Northeast Party House plus more. All before the band was a year old.

Now in their second year as a band, Good Boy have already released their second EP, Plum. Recorded with Cam Smith at Incremental Records (Velociraptor, Deafcult) and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Supression Ring, Dick Diver), the new EP is a evolution on the sound of their first release. Lead single “Poverty Line” is a 3 minute 30 second exploration of what it is to be a young person living in Australia at the moment; living below the poverty line, where cost of living gets higher but wages stay the same. “Millie” is the heartbreaking story of burying a beloved family dog and “Ya Mum’s Ya Dad” is a cutting criticism of everyday life in Australia with possibly the lyric of the year; “Just wanna lead a normal life. Have a couple of kids, have a couple of wives.”

After touring with Japandroids and ending 2016 in style playing Festival Of The Sun and Falls Festival, Good Boy have no plans to slow down, releasing a split 7 inch with Melbourne wunderkind Jarrow in April featuring brand new single “Braap”. It’s gonna be one hell of a year.

“Good Boy are prepping the needle for an impromptu stick ‘ n’ poke that’ ll turn out to be your favourite tattoo. They’ re not just another band – they’ re THE FUCKING BAND.”- Ryan Saar, Soundly Sounds“

What a charming little pop song.”- Dom Alessio, Triple J

“Instant fan.”- Zan Rowe, Triple“You should get along to a show so you can say you discovered them way before everyone else.”- [V] Music

Xani (EP Launch) & This Way North (Single Launch) with Brooke Russell

Tickets $13+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Ask Xani Kolac (Clare Bowditch, Tim Rogers, My Friend the Chocolate Cake, Martin Martini & the Bone Palace Orchestra) to describe her latest batch of songs for her debut solo project, XANI, and she’ll tell you that there are “songs about being needy and songs that are downright depressing”. These are not words that spring to mind when one encounters electric violinist and AU Review Best Live Instrumentalist nominee, Xani, onstage or off. Being a naturally energetic and bubbly performer, Kolac toes the line in her songwriting perfectly between being “happy but kind of sad”.

XANI’s debut EP, simply titled, “1”, four tracks laid thick with country guitar, pop choruses, and Kolac’s own trademark strings that shimmer and soar throughout, will launch at The Gasometer on April 26th. Joining her onstage will be Mark Leahy on drums (The Twoks), Cristian Barbieri on guitar (Billy Davis), Josh Jones on bass (Dan Sultan), and crooning backing vocals delivered by Olivia Nathan, Jacinta Caruana and Rex Sutton.

In a thrilling double bill, This Way North are releasing their second track for 2017, "Pressure". Following February’s summer sizzler, "Head Above Water", the Melbourne duo aren't mucking around, creating another bangin' tune. Sounding like an 80’s teenage movie anthem, this pop gem drips with lush guitar and tight, synth-like drumming. Recorded during in a stint in Toronto with producer, Derek Downham, This Way North were pushed in a direction that neither could have predicted, giving birth to an exciting new alt-pop sound.

This Way North will head out on a national tour to all major east coast cities and SA, alongside some regional shows in the Northern Territory (Wide Open Space Festival), Queensland (Sol Bar Maroochydore) and NSW (Mullumbimby and Wollumbi) in support of "Pressure's" release.

Opening the night, Brooke Russell will effortlessly blend vintage Americana with widescreen, dark country, singing her songs about boozy nights, bad decisions, broken hearts and the best intentions. Brooke is currently in the studio making her much anticipated next record.

10-piece afro-funk sensation Lyre Byrdland have been melting down clubs in Sydney for the past two years and are now ready to take their mix of Nigerian afro-beat and tight funk to the Gasometer as part of their first national tour. With a four-piece horn line-up featuring some of Sydney’s grooviest masters of brass and a powerful rhythm section that never stops moving, Lyre Byrdland has honed their distinctly modern sound to get your heart pumping and your body moving. Drawing inspiration from the greats of the genre such as Fela Kuti and The Daktaris as well contemporary powerhouses Daft Punk and Snarky Puppy, Lyre Byrdland’s sound is both reassuringly familiar like a comfy old sweater but strikingly fresh like a new pair of jeans.

Featuring members of The Cactus Channel, Emanuel Ciccolini's Tex Mex Takeout, The Brady's and other undiscovered Melbourne gems, Karate Boogaloo deliver serious grooves with the speed of a Jackie Chan snap kick but with the fun of Post Man Pat!
What more could you want? Probably not much.

Laneous plays improvised soul with a loop pedal and lyrics inspired by whatever is going on at the time and a funky drummer.

WANDERERS kicked off 2017 with the release of their EP ‘Something For a Distraction’. Coming off the back of a very successful 2016 and will see them touring the country extensively, returning to Melbourne Saturday April 29th upstairs at The Gaso.

‘…and what followed was Wanderers’ trademark symphony of moods- the shredding of guitar riffs, dreamy harmonies, funky bass and a general feeling of nostalgia.’ - This is Radelaide

This sophomore EP reflects the tightness of a band that can often only be achieve through the constant touring. The new single Loco has been described as a 'breezy blues-rock number that steadily builds into a raunchy, soulful jam' and has been met with rave reveiws from all corners of the globe.

‘You simply can’t listen to this music and not groove.’ – The AU Review.

Jade Imagine 'What The Fuck Was I Thinking?' Launch with Special Guests

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

Big news. Jade Imagine are about to hatch a love letter to low-fi, slacker-fuzz-dream pop bathed in the glow of ’70s surf-music with their debut EP What The Fuck Was I Thinking - out April 28 via Milk! Records. Not only that, the band have today dropped a new video clip for single 'Walkin' Around', and announced a slew of live dates across April and May.

Already, the EP’s first two singles ‘Stay Awake’ and ‘Walkin’ Around’ are earning big props: Rolling Stone pegged ‘Stay Awake’ as “a shimmering summer-invite track”, putting us right back in mind of surf, sun and sky.

The new 'Walkin' Around' video was directed by Clancy Walker (who's previously directed for Sea Shepherd in Antarctica and made video clips for rapper Allday) with cinematography by Sean T. Barnes (who works regularly with the Underground Lovers). Jade McInally, Jade Imagine’s front babe and brains said, "It was filmed on a street in Coburg that was randomly chosen by Clancy because there were a strip of good looking, unassuming shopfronts."

Jade Imagine have announced a long list of live dates throughout April and May to launch the EP, playing with the full band in-check. They'll play a release day in-store at Polyester Records on April 28, at the Corner Hotel with Cash Savage and the Last Drinks on May 6, The Tote with Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever on May 12, and headline EP launch shows at The Gaso in Melbourne on May 19, in Brisbane on May 25 at The End and in Sydney at the Golden Age Cinema on May 27. Supports for the two headline shows are soon to be announced.

McInally cut her band teeth with her own electro project Tantrums in 2004. Since then she’s fleshed out scene favourites like Jess Cornelius’ Teeth and Tongue and backed the best on bass (you can catch her onstage with Jess Ribeiro). With some urging from mates in the know, at the end of 2015 McInally flexed her songwriting muscle, deciding it was time to play ringleader to her own band of musical-mischief makers again. “I’m a songwriter, and it took me so long to realise that,” McInally says. “I need to be writing, because that’s how I feel good.”

Picking up a loaner guitar from Dan Kelly, McInally set about writing all of the tunes for Jade Imagine’s six-track debut EP What The Fuck Was I Thinking. “I think that guitar had some kind of good juju in it,” she reflects. “It’s got some amazing vibes. I picked it up and it made me feel like I was sitting on a beach somewhere,” which touches on one of McInally’s obsessions. McInally is almost always California dreaming, albeit via Melbourne. “In my mind, all of my songs are about missing the coast and wanting to go surfing everyday, even if they’re not actually about that.”

After a spot of bedroom recording, McInally sent a bunch of demos to Dave Mudie (drummer with Courtney Barnett). Mudie not only gave them the thumbs up, he took the liberty of laying down some drums and steered pre-production. Buoyed by the outcome, McInally acquired her band members, Pied-Piper style. The fluid line-up revolves around Liam “Snowy” Halliwell (The Ocean Party, Ciggie Witch) on bass, producer/guitarist Tim Harvey (Emma Louise, Real Feelings) and Jen Sholakis (East Brunswick All Girls Choir, Jen Cloher) on drums.

Despite the fact that McInally’s out front and had the bones of the songs for What The Fuck Was I Thinking under her belt before the band came onboard, Jade Imagine’s no autocracy. “I’m kind of a chill personality when I’m playing music with people and I don’t like to tell people what to play: I’m a vibes guy,” McInally explains. “I just like playing with people in rehearsal and when we come across a cool sound, it’ll stick and I’ll point it out, but I’m not one to say, ‘you’re playing that and you’re playing that’. All of my bandmates are so distinct in their style and playing, so I never got them to join the band with the intention that I’d get them to play differently.”

Recorded over a six month period at Mudie’s house and in an epic-DIY effort in McInally’s bedroom (it involved a lot of blankets, other people’s mics and a “control room” in the hallway) with both Mudie and Harvey driving production at various points, What The Fuck Was I Thinking is melting pot of mid-sixties Cali’ vibes, the Church (McInally’s favourite band), surf music (of course), T-Rex, Fleetwood Mac, the Triffids and the Go-Betweens. “Whenever I record with Tim [Harvey] we have a little session beforehand and listen to songs from other bands and talk about what sounds we want,” McInally reflects of the experience. “It’s all very measured with him. For instance, on the drums for ‘Walkin’ Around’, Fleetwood Mac was a reference, but so was Neu and that definitely doesn’t come through. With Dave [Mudie], it’s more, ‘like let’s throw some things at the wall and see what sticks’, in a good way.”

What the Fuck Was I Thinking comes out on Milk! Records on April 28. It's available to pre-order now on limited edition milky white vinyl via Milk!.

Dear Diary,

I’ve been writing songs for years, and I’ve never released anything under my own name. I’ve been performing for years, and I’ve never started my own band before.

During this time I’ve toured around the world and written in collaboration with some wonderful people who have become some of my best friends; namely my bands The Bowers, Hoy and Slow Galo.

Last year I started writing and recording my first bunch songs for a solo release. I have whittled it down to a 6-track EP that I’m calling ‘In the Course of Love’. I plan to release it in a few months time. It was an interesting process…writing about some of the strongest flavours of life and love at the same time as I was experiencing them, or imagining them. Sometimes I anticipated them, and sometimes I found myself bringing them back…the sweetest ones and the bitter ones.

The first song I’m going to release is called ‘Soaking Cherries’. It speaks of apartment cohabitation, ‘FoMO’, and wondering just how is it that next door seem to make things work so well?

I’ve started a band to perform these tracks. They are all such great players…I feel very lucky to have them on board. I keep telling myself they are lucky, too, because they get to play my songs. Then I laugh and tell myself to pull my head in…“You’re not in America anymore, Liam”.

We’ll be playing 4 shows upstairs at the Gasometer on Tuesday evenings in March, with a cast of really special guests. During the month I’ll be releasing ‘Soaking Cherries’ to radio, along with a beautifully animated video clip.

I’m looking forward to it.

Liam

They’ve just wrapped US shows alongside the ball-busting Dropkick Murphys, were recently announced on California’s It’s Not Dead Fest alongside punkers Rancid, while the one and only Green Day invited them to tour the globe as their support on the US trio’s epic Revolution Radio World Tour… meet the The Interrupters!

‘The band play effortlessly, and singer Aimee Interrupter is certainly a shoo-in for next punk rock star status’ – uberrock

‘They seamlessly fuse energetic bouncy ska rhythms with hardcore machine gun riffing and a ferocious delivery’ – Rock N Reel Reviews

With Green Day’s Australia/New Zealand tour in April/May quickly approaching, Frontier Touring is chuffed to announce a special headline gig from Los Angeles-based, ska-punker The Interrupters – taking place at Collingwood’s The Gasometer Hotel on Thursday 4 May. Tickets are on sale Thursday 30 March.

Formed in 2012, The Interrupters – Aimee Interrupter (vocals), Kevin Bivona (guitar), Justin Bovina (bass) and Jesse Bovina (drums) – burst onto the scene after releasing their impressive self-titled debut in 2014, which saw the rockers sign with legendary label Hellcat Records. 2016 brought acclaimed sophomore album Say It Out Loud – produced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong (who features on track ‘Phantom City’), a record undeniably fun but urgent in message.

The Interrupters’ lyrics confront everything from social control and self-empowerment in songs such as ‘By My Side’ or ‘On A Turntable’, plus issues like domestic violence in ‘She Got Arrested’. Filled with frenetic energy and bold upstrokes, this is one formidable live show!

Special guests for the night is Melbourne singer/songwriter Luke Yeoward and The Half Way. The former frontman of local favourites King Cannons returns in 2017 with his upcoming debut album Ghosts, released Friday 21 April (head here). Inspired by fatherhood to exemplify the importance of passion, Ghosts is a perfect mixture of everything that’s influenced Yeoward in his lifetime – take a listen to title track here.

Whether playing in front of thousands at arenas alongside Green Day next month –second show on sale now – or this up close and personal gig at the Gasometer, don’t miss The Interrupters!

Country Women's Association with Dominic Byrne

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors at 8.00 PM

FACEBOOK EVENT

After an extended gestation period in a suburban bedroom, Country Women’s Association will emerge fully formed to play their first Melbourne show, with support from Dominic Byrne of Little Red, Greasers and New Gods fame. CWA grind through intense numbers like champion depressives, whilst revealing and reviling their country roots through themes of love, loss and isolation. Solid beats and dense compositions combine with aching lyrics to create an absorbing, if at times asphyxiating atmosphere of anguish-tinged longing.

Dom will bring a sweeping 15-year back catalogue of bangers to bear, reforming a 10-year-old musical partnership between long lost gig partners Greasers and The Breaks.

Named for the fountain in the centre of Bendigo marking the geographic heartland of Victoria, Fountaineer embody the last 50 years of rock storytelling, from the mood and tension of post-punk to the solemn heroism of blue-collar rock'n'roll. In anticipation for the upcoming debut album, “Greater Love, Greater City”, a record about small town history, enduring hope and the power of community, the band bring their latest and loudest of literary rock rallying cries to The Gasometer Hotel.

Folk Uke (USA) & Dog Trumpet ONLY MELBOURNE DATE ON AUSTRALIAN TOUR

tickets $25+BF/$30 on the door. Doors 7.00 PM

Folk Uke (guitar and ukulele), a super duo that comprises Amy Nelson, daughter of Willie, and Cathy Guthrie, daughter of Arlo. Don't believe the rumours. Folk Uke is not totally amazing. They're just kind of amazing. If you find yourself at a Folk Uke show, you are in for a treat— but maybe not the kind of treat that you like the taste of. Come to a show and see for yourself.

Starfucker, Folk Uke’s new concept album, features Cathy Guthrie and Amy Nelson’s ethereal harmonies woven with both heartfelt and occasionally indecent lyrics. http://folkuke.com/index.html Dog Trumpet is a family affair spearheaded by brothers Peter O’Doherty and Reg Mombassa, former founding members of iconic Australian Aria award winning and Hall of Fame band Mental As Anything. Over the last twenty years as Dog Trumpet they have released five albums. They continue their sonic alchemy of roots based, folk, pop, country and semi-abstract blues with their sixth and best release, a double album, Medicated Spirits. Dog Trumpet will be releasing a “Best of” in 2016/7 as well as more touring both here in Australia and overseas. www.dogtrumpet.net

Dear Diary,

I’ve been writing songs for years, and I’ve never released anything under my own name. I’ve been performing for years, and I’ve never started my own band before.

During this time I’ve toured around the world and written in collaboration with some wonderful people who have become some of my best friends; namely my bands The Bowers, Hoy and Slow Galo.

Last year I started writing and recording my first bunch songs for a solo release. I have whittled it down to a 6-track EP that I’m calling ‘In the Course of Love’. I plan to release it in a few months time. It was an interesting process…writing about some of the strongest flavours of life and love at the same time as I was experiencing them, or imagining them. Sometimes I anticipated them, and sometimes I found myself bringing them back…the sweetest ones and the bitter ones.

The first song I’m going to release is called ‘Soaking Cherries’. It speaks of apartment cohabitation, ‘FoMO’, and wondering just how is it that next door seem to make things work so well?

I’ve started a band to perform these tracks. They are all such great players…I feel very lucky to have them on board. I keep telling myself they are lucky, too, because they get to play my songs. Then I laugh and tell myself to pull my head in…“You’re not in America anymore, Liam”.

We’ll be playing 4 shows upstairs at the Gasometer on Tuesday evenings in March, with a cast of really special guests. During the month I’ll be releasing ‘Soaking Cherries’ to radio, along with a beautifully animated video clip.

I’m looking forward to it.

Liam

Agamous Betty with Drew Woolley & Safety Word (UPSTAIRS)

FREE ENTRY, Doors 7.30 PM

Agamous Betty is an experimental pop artist, his songwriting and production has been compared to the likes of Elliot Smith, the new pornography era cure and the flaming lips, among others. Drew Woolley had been described as doom-folk by some, mournful by others and outright affecting by most. His understandings and perusing of language and texture are almost forgotten by the pure naturalism and emotional caressing audience members are invited to. The sometimes mournful "somethings subversive" always profoundly present aesthetics and sounds they produce within a multitude of mediums are what put them among the intelligentsia of Melbourne's elite song-smiths. Not to be missed by those seeking out a deeper more enriching musical experience. Support TBA

Richie 1250 & The Brides of Christ with The Exotics, Bitch Diesel, Jason Goodman & The Night Owls (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.30 PM

Our new single is a piano ballad, so I thought I'd make a classy Italian wedding sort of poster to go with it. The launch party will also be like an Italian wedding, with lots of carousing and singing and dancing. But no food. My grandmother is not gonna cook lasagna for all you people. She's dead, and when she was alive she was not that great a cook. But we got lotsa great music for your pleasure. Here's the plan. Jason Goodman & The Night Owls are first. They play nice louisiana r'n'b and chicano soul ballads and all that stuff you like to hear. Bitch Diesel is next. They have a stupid amound of sass and spunk and moxy and chutzpah and all the things you want a punky rock n roll band to have. Next is The Exotics. They are The Exotics. They have been the gold standard or raw greasy r'n'b rockabilly gospel rock n roll in this town since about 1991. Other towns should be so lucky to have them. And then Richie1250 & The Brides Of Christ. We play dance numbers and piano ballads too. We like to dress flamboyantly and we are all extremely good looking. In between acts DJ Ginger Light will be playing groovy records from the miniskirt era. That's the plan. RICHIE1250 & THE BRIDES OF CHRIST "THINKING ABOUT HER ALWAYS" SINGLE LAUNCH w/ THE EXOTICS + BITCH DIESEL + JASON GOODMAN & THE NIGHT OWLS + DJ GINGER LIGHT FRIDAY MARCH 10TH @ THE GASOMETER UPSTAIRS DOORS AT 8:30PM

AFP TAKES OVER THE GASOMETER!

TICKETS $50 (BOOKING FEE INCLUSIVE). DOORS 8.00 PM

Singer-songwriter and New York Times bestselling author Amanda Palmer is taking over the beloved Gasometer for six nights throughout January, February and March, 2017.

“It’s time for me to re-connect to my audience with nothing but a piano and a microphone, and Australia has always been really fertile ground for me.” (AFP)

Palmer has spent most American winters in Australia, notably making her last full kickstarter-funded album “Theatre Is Evil” at Sing Sing studios in Melbourne in 2012, then returning to Melbourne in the winter of 2014 to pen her best-selling book “The Art of Asking”. Palmer is going to be taking up residence again in Fitzroy, this time with her son, and hopes to write new material.

She’s scheduled SIX shows at The Gasometer as a playground to experiment with new songs in front of a live crowd.

“I love playing to my weird little Melbourne family - we’ve gotten to know each other very well over the years, and it’s nice to go back to playing to crowds of just a few hundred at a time so you can really feel the effect of the songs on people - something gets lost when you’re playing to crowds of 1,500.” (AFP)
