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).

APES (August Residency) - with Great Outdoors & Batz

TICKETS: $10 on the door. DOORS 8PM

*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

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.

Doors at 8:30pm, get there early as capacity is limited.

Golden Syrup is a full band sound made by one woman. A new music project from Sara Retallick (Jimmy Tait) which uses synthesized and real­world sounds to build dense layers with cavernous interludes. Golden Syrup presents these experimental pop songs in a pensive atmosphere. Armed with microphone, guitar, manipulated tape recordings, drum loops and synthesizer ­ Retallick collects field recordings and uses granular synthesis to coalesce with the striking vocal performance that she is known for.

Tom Lee-Richards 'Madness' Launch with Monique Shelford & Tulalah

Tickets $9+Bf/$12 on the door. Doors 6.30PM

'Madness' the new single by Tom Lee-Richards is both raw and strikingly honest. Co-Produced with Matt Neighbour (Matt Corby, Courtney Barnett) it captures themes of beauty and introspection.

Featuring fellow New Zealander Monique Shelford’s playful vocal weaving, ‘Madness’ is about the tension of ownership and blame when it comes to negotiating relationships.

The accompanying film clip is a harrowing and unnervingly romantic tale starring Laura Wheelwright (Animal Kingdom), Shaun Goss and Directed by Tim Brade. The video is out August 2nd.

TLR will be taking his new single and highly textured live show up the east coast of Australia and down the North and South Island of NZ with 21 intimate performances.
The tour begins at The Gasometer on Sunday 4th September and features the incredible Monique Shelford Music and Tulalah.

Dead Planet 1964 with Dead End, Miss Miss & Mamma Lade

Tickets $8 on the door. Doors 8.00PM

Prepare yourself for a night of Garage madness down at the Gas-o-meter on the 7th of September! Joining Dead Planet 1964 for a night of debauchery are Dead End, whose unique brand of punk is interwoven with a complexity matched only by their momentum, Miss Miss with their kick-arse riot grrl tunes and Mama Lade with their doomy, dread filled garage-punk. Come along to and have a few pints and see these bands cook up some spicy hot mind-blowing-hip-shaking-foot-tapping Garage grooves.

Dead Planet 1964: Dead Planet 1964 is comprised of four terrestrial beings who create dark parables concerning love, death and dinner and the hazards surrounding. Their unique brand of storytelling sits atop monolithic riffs that invoke Sabbathian witchcraft. Dead Planet 1964s gritty garage doom vibes can be found lurking in bars and pubs around Melbourne.

Miss Miss : Miss Miss are a newly formed Garage Punk band based in Melbourne. Working with a minimal setup, these two fiercely femmo babes are heavily inspired by Riot Grrrl and are here to smash gender expectations with a cheeky sense of humour. When they’re not dropping bangers north of the river, Miss Miss are probably at home drinking beers and watching Family Feud in their underpants.

Dead End: Dead End are a punk band that have been ripping it up all around town since they started playing at the beginning of the year. Having just released their debut EP the boys are ready to continue with their ‘intelli-punk’ with other Melbourne punk bands. With hints of another 2 EP’s to be released by the end of this year, this is a ‘must keep your eyes peeled’ type of band.

MammaLade: Hailing from Footscray, Melbourne. Mammalade consists of three scumbags that deliver a form of music that depends heavily on being loud, abrasive and above all else a solid groove. Their live show doesn’t so much work too activity to earn the audiences attention but rather too ensnare it with an intensity and absurdity that can only be provided by lunatics.

TICKETS: $12+bf / $15 on the door. DOORS 7:30PM

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).

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)

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.

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.

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00PM

As a solo artist for many years, the stage has been a solitary experience for Harmony Byrne This year, the fire Monkey being in full swing, has seen sparks of collaborations emerge, taking Harmony into the realms of bandhood.

Inspiring Harmony to get a band together, Sugar Teeth are gracing The Gaso with their tunes. This soulful collective bring the bite back- to the sweeter side of life.

It's been over 4 years, thousands of kilometers, millions of shows, a billion new faces and at least 3 hours jail time but all good things must come to an end - The Commission Flats say goodbye to the Sharard Sisters.

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...

Vaudeville Smash with special guests

Tickets: $18+bf / $20 on the door. Doors: 8pm

Melbourne’s Vaudeville Smash return to the Gasometer for the launch of their highly anticipated second album, ‘The Gift’.

A synth heavy, sax laden, bass induced journey. A contemporary interpretation of the early 80s funk/boogie scene, the album evokes visions of Cameo, Midnight Star and the Gap Band and encompasses almost two years of writing, recording and touring.

Vaudeville Smash have built their reputation on their explosive live shows and Sat September 24 will be a party like no other.

Pickpocket 'Sojourn' Launch with Lake Minnetonka & Yarra Banks (UPSTAIRS)

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.

Big Creature 'Talk' Launch with Special Guests

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.”

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!

Alex will hit the road with her 4-piece band this September, kicking off the tour at Bigsound music conference and festival, the biggest week for Aus music on the calendar. Followed by 12 dates around the country, taking in some highly coveted festival slots along the way.

Hot off the release of the EP that has scored positive reviews from critics and fans alike, Alex is also very excited to announce that she has signed to esteemed music publishing company Native Tongue.

"I couldn't be happier to officially be part of the Native Tongue family” says Lahey. "As an artist who primarily identifies as a songwriter, Native Tongue's commitment to working with their writers to develop their skills and create opportunities makes me extremely excited for the future and all the hard work ahead!”

Native Tongue’s GM, Jaime Gough added, “I first saw Alex perform almost two years ago and was instantly taken by her lyrics and delivery. Even then, Alex had a clear idea of who she was as an artist and the messages she wished to convey. Alex has since blossomed with her writing and it’s a genuine pleasure to be working with such an exciting talent throughout the formative stages of what will be a long career in this industry”.

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.

Drenched in dub, shredded with metal, uprooted by the funk, Reuben Stone has defined his sound drawing influences from various acoustic and electronic semblances.

Reuben keeps on delivering to packed out shows throughout Australia, Northern America, Europe, the UK and Asia. Having just released an album recorded on the street at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh Scotland.

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.

Cold Hands Warm Heart with HTML Flowers, James Tom (DJ) & special guest

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.

*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

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

TICKETS: $10+bf / $12 on the door. DOORS 7:30PM

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.

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.

Aeora has been commended by local and international media alike for not only her vocal talents, but sleek production and intriguing songwriting. We’re now pleased to be launching Alt. ­ the five track record a genuine & raw record of Aeora’s past year ­ alongside Au Dre and Blyolk.

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.

Brungas Band at The Gasometer Hotel with Templar, Niche and Harry

(UPSTAIRS) Tickets $5+BF/$10 on the door. Doors 8.00PM

Join us, the good people of Melbourne, and indulge your ears and brains to the sounds that the Brungas, Templar and Harry produce for you on a humble Saturday night. This night, when explained using a graph, will be exponentially rising with energy and grooves, something that you won't wanna miss out on!

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. We hope to see your face in the crowd, and follow along for a pre and post boogie.
