Daniel Champagne - 2 Sets! (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a wh ole band, Champagne is just magical (themusic.com.au) The story goes that the young Australian singer, songwriter and one-of-a-kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice a s a five-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing solo wherever he could, honing his craft and developing what would become the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today.

At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road. The nex t five years saw him traversing North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and of course, his homeland Australia playing such festivals as Vancouver and Mariposa Folk (Canada), Belgiums Labadoux Festival and Australias Woodford, Falls Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and the legendary Byron Bay Bluesfest. As well as touring and sharing stages with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler, KT T unstall and Ani DiFranco, Jake Shimabukuro, Rodrigo Y Gabriela – all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two Eps, Gypsy Moon Volumes 1 and 2, his first long player Pint of Mystery (2011) My Own Design (2009) and Wide Eyed and Open (2010), and the Real Live offering in 2012. His latest release Fault Lines is available now. As one reviewer recently wrote, still in his early twenties, the distances he has been would be more frequently associated with veterans of the Folk scene (The Dwarf).

The Tropes with Moaning Lisa, Swim Team & Candy (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10+BF/$12 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

THE TROPES were havin' a chat with their Canberra pals MOANING LISA (Yeah you know them. The unearthed winners who's song "Carrie (I want a girl) has over 100,000 plays on spotify. The band who'll probably take over the world in the next year or two because they're so damn good.) Anyway, i diverge. So this chat revolved around playing another gig together soon. They said they'd like to play with SWIM TEAM because they were big fans. I agreed because i am also a big fan of them. I recommended we play upstairs at the GASO because i'd played there before in other bands and thought it was tops. Last piece of the puzzle fell into place when i was havin' a chat with the drummer of new band CANDY. To hear the end of this most gripping of tales you'll have to come to the show. The phrases "not to be missed" and "epic finale" come to mind....

MEZKO 'COME & GO' Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

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

Sydney multi-instrumentalists MEZKO today unveil their new track and video 'Come & Go' and announce dates for a national single tour this June. The track is the first arrival from the enigmatic duo since their 2017 debut with the Polychronic EP, and is out now on Inertia Music.

MEZKO are Kat Harley and Laura Bailey. Forged by an insatiable musical connection that is the foundation of MEZKO'S unique sound; a collision of futurist pop and electronica that casts one eye backwards at post-punk and krautrock. Their melange of motorik beats, harmonic riffs and hypnotic vocals are anchored by taut, melodic bass lines and expansive synths. This explosion of sounds is combined with thoughtful songwriting and technical prowess, resulting in a mesmerising experience - a space controlled by them and for them, yet enveloping anyone in its path.

A regular fixture across local radio stations around the country for their previous singles 'Steady On,' 'Trust' and 'Everyone' , MEZKO have grown a diverse, energetic fan base through memorable live shows alongside King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Emma Louise, Mosquito Coast, Running Touch, Miami Horror, World Champion and Gold Class. They’ve also played Volumes, Blurst of Times, Purple Sneakers x Vivid, Gaytimes, Secret Garden, Bad Friday, and Perth’s Disconnect Festival. Ahead of their national tour dates, which will see MEZKO actualise 'Come & Go' and a slew of other new material live, the duo are traversing the country this April in support of Crooked Colours.

OKENYO with Rebecca Hatch and Price J (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Last year, OKENYO invited you into a ‘WOMAN’S WORLD’, introducing herself as an artist who is strong in her ideals, brave in her delivery and vulnerable in her revelations. Today, she announces her debut EP ‘THE WAVE’, where she delves even deeper into the human condition.

‘THE WAVE’ is about learning from our mistakes, celebrating our imperfections and recognising our eternal journey of change.

OKENYO describes the work further, “I am always pushing myself into places of vulnerability in my work in order to discover who I am in this world and how I can continue to navigate it. I’m scared, I’m strong, I’m funny, I’m weak, I’m searching, I’m magic on certain days of the week.

The Wave is an expression of a time that through music, can outstay time”

OKENYO offers the newest taste of the EP with ’20 / 20’, a raw and telling manifesto. In the video, the artist/actress digs deep into her own experiences, laying her flaws bare; her vulnerabilities are inescapable while the viewer witnesses a powerful and relatable performance of letting someone go. We watch on as OKENYO rides the wave deep, the music her saving grace.

Producing and writing the EP with Lionel Towers, the work is unique in its textures and unveils an artist of musical integrity and technical finesse. Excited to bring this work to life, OKENYO will celebrate the release of the EP on her first National Headline Tour.

A pill testing fundraiser at the Gasometer Hotel on Saturday the 16.06

Following the recent success of the drug testing trials at 'Groovin the Moo' festival in ACT we have joined up with the Victorian Socialists who are backing the campaign here in VIC and The Gasometer Hotel who have offered us this great space to host the event!

  • line-up TBA -

Harm minimisation simply makes sense. It saves lives and is a much more sensible and effective approach to dealing with drug issues than using aggressive methods such as sniffer dogs.

Drug use/abuse is a serious issue in our day and age, so lets not pretend we can get rid of it through out-dated scare tactics.

THE GOODS 'MAKE YOUR MOVE' LAUNCH WITH GC O'CONNOR & COLLETTE (UPSTAIRS)

TICKETS $15 BF.inc/$20 on the door. Dors 8.00 PM

One of Australia's most dynamic acts, The Goods, return to the stage, unveiling a brand new live show to mark the release of their hotly anticipated EP Make Your Move.

Out April 13 via Personal Best Records & Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Recordings, Make Your Move documents the band's exploration into faster tempos and broken rhythms, and was created in a much more collaborative spirit than their previous work. With Black Tree now an official member, the trio has tapped back into their roots as improvising musicians, with experimentations and ideas developed during their live shows making their way back into the studio and fine-tuned into the tracks on this new EP.

Consisting of founding members Badmandela and Rosario, along with the more recent addition of vocalist Black Tree, The Goods first burst onto the scene in 2016 with the release of their self-titled double EP rooted in a steady stream of hip-hop, space funk, low slung house and club soul, earning them recognition through outlets such as Complex, MTV, VICE and Indie Shuffle,

In what’s been a stellar year for The Goods, the talented trio released their Spotify hero “Make Your Move”, their more recent radio-champion “Glow”, and entered into a new signing with Niche Productions. Word has also spread internationally, leading to a signing to New York-based label Bastard Jazz, home to artists such as Illa J and Potatohead People. With continued support from outlets including Complex, RUSSH, Pilerats, triple j, community radio and beyond, it’s no wonder The Goods have become vital members of Sydney's rising soul/electronic scene in just a few short years.

Notorious for their smashing live sets, The Goods have shared stages with the likes of Oddisee, Onra, Touch Sensitive and most recently Mr. Carmack, in addition to standout performances at Vivid, Newtown Festival & Secret Garden Festival.

Don’t miss your spot on the dance floor as The Goods bring Make Your Move to Sydney & Melbourne this June.

Gabriella Cohen 'Album Launch' with Broads & Bonnie Love

Tickets $20+BF/$25 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Australia’s sweetheart, Gabriella Cohen, returns with her sophomore album, Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love. The album’s opener and first single ‘Baby’ was born in the graveyard of unrequited love, yet morphs into a remarkably catchy, feel good number.

On Pink Is The Colour, Cohen pays homage to her musical influences by inviting the listener on a journey: from the grooves of bossa nova, to the lilting sentimentality of strings, to kicking it back on the sprawling highways of rock ‘n’ roll. Honest heartache is woven into glory throughout the record, and during eleven tracks a candid, almost ethereal self-portrait of its songwriter emerges. For Gabriella Cohen, it’s an epitaph of electric wonder, and a definitive fact: Pink is the Colour of Unconditional Love.

Cohen moved to a farm in countryside Victoria, Australia in summer of 2017 to record and self-produce the album with engineer and partner-in-crime, Kate “Babyshakes” Dillon. There, amidst flocks of screeching white cockatoos and herds of Black Angus cows, they etched the beginning of Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love. The record was almost complete when the band was invited to join Foxygen’s US tour, compelling the girls to finish the album on the road. Armed with a microphone and an interface, Dillon and Cohen captured the final touches of the album on a boat in England, and the coast of Portugal; in the mountains of Southern Italy, cafes of Mexico, and finally in Venice Beach, Los Angeles.

Throughout the new album Cohen (flanked by a choir of imaginary dolls that exist in her head) creates complex and sugary backing vocals. These signature vocal arrangements – contoured with classic harmonies and nostalgic melodies – form songs remarkable in their originality.

Released through kitchen-table label Hangout Records, The Hot Springs have mixed elements of romantic poetry, country and grunge into their debut EP. Inspired by the likes of gothic-country flagships Neko Case and Grant Lee-Buffalo as well as elements of classic and Aussie rock, the EP showcases the band’s balance of lead sax (Renn Picard) and guitar (Adam Heath) with the lyrical storytelling of Knight, whose vocals have earned comparisons to Patti Smith and Chris Isaac.

With support from friends Gena Rose Bruce (& Band), and Jackson Phelan (RAThammock) The Hot Springs will launch their EP at The Gasometer Hotel on Thursday 28th of June.

TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON!

Gena Rose Bruce is a lover of sad eyed, bluesy pop with a touch of twang. She writes honest songs with a bit of reverb creating that 90’s dream, West Coast sound.

Taking influence from a sea of lo fi bedroom producers, 90’s rock, jazz, country and folk, Jackson Phelan’s idiosyncratic story telling is unapologetically emotive, funny and thought provoking.

Warped Album Launch with Mod Vigil, Spawn, Beat Taboo

Tickets $12.50+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Batten down the hatches and hoist the anchor, Warped are back with a brand new record, “Bolt from the Blue” loaded with their face melting guitar wizardry.

Singer guitarist Ben Watkins and drummer Cris Wilson formed Warped when they were just 13 and 12 years old in Geelong as fledglings of the scene that gave the world Bored! Powder Monkeys and Magic Dirt. In the mid-1990s Warped released their debut album “Slimeax” on legendary Melbourne indie label Au-go-go which was also home to the Meanies, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Spiderbait. Warped went on to sign to Mushroom Records releasing two highly acclaimed rock and roll albums, “On The Make” and “Quicker Ways to Blacker Eyes”, which along with bands such as the Hellacopters, influenced the next generation of Melbourne riff makers and beyond. New album “Bolt from the Blue” shows Warped as a trio with Sammy Crawford on bass, are still at the top of their game. “Bolt from the Blue” Brisbane based independent label, Conquest of Noise which is home to bands such as Hits, Fur, Meatcake, Grindhouse and Leadfinger and the Courtneys.

Here is what the critics have said:

Bolt from the Blue (Conquest of Noise)

Reformed Greater Melbourne ’90s band Warped are back with their first music in a long, long time, but they haven’t lost their gnashing-hard edge. They exist squarely where an undeniable pinch of hard rock/metal hits alternative rock played with a punk attitude, in a space time continuum that goes through America’s Kick Out the Jams MC5 and The Dictators to their countrymen early AC/DC and more steely Radio Birdman offerings, to especially England’s Motörhead—whom they resemble, only they’re far less metallic, although perhaps they have more of that than, say, Hum, Leatherface, or Swervedriver. The playing is still tight as a drum, with guitars that knife like box-cutters, and a rhythm section that pounds like boxers, and they’ll be glad to start six-string conflagrations everywhere if you let them.

  • Jack Rabid (The Big Take Over, New York City)

Warped launch “Bolt from the Blue” at the Gasometer Hotel in Melbourne on Saturday 7th July with very special guests Mod Vigil, Spawn and Beat Taboo as well as a late DJ set by Adalita to keep the party rocking until late. Tickets on sale now for $12 or $20 includes a copy of the brand new Warped record on CD. The LP will also be available to purchase on the night along with a brand new range of merchandise including T-shirts, hoodies and stubby holders designed by renowned Australian artist, and lead singer of The Hellmen, Ben Brown.

SUNDAY 15 JULY THE GASO (UPSTAIRS)

Shag Rock continue their incredible home run with the announcement of a seven date East Coast tour. Coming just as the Brisbane band put the finishing touches on their first release for 2018, this fresh run of headline dates see the 'Shaggers' bring their infectious live show to three states across two weeks.

Celebrating the band's success to date, the June headline shows are a chance to pay homage to clocking five million streams of their music globally and a hugely fruitful debut jaunt in the US at the end of 2017 - which saw the band perform at the Mondo Rock festival and for a full house at the World Surf League headquarters in Santa Monica. The band has also hit the stage in support of a raft of Aussie legends, including Good Boy, Ocean Alley and The Belligerents. Recently they also performed in front of a 3,000 strong crowd at Stones Corner Festival and Surfers Paradise Live.

Currently hard at work with producer Ian Haug (Powderfinger, the church), Shag Rock are exploring on a more refined, diverse sound with the first fruit due to drop early June. Of the new soundcape, singer and guitarist Alex Wilson refers to it as 'our magnum opus... just joking. It's our best work yet and we can't wait for everyone to hear it.' Until then, tickets are on sale for all dates from today.

Join Lake Minnetonka, Mayfield and Au Dré, along with guest vocalists Amber Ferraro (Honey), Henry Manetta and more to be announced, as they throw a funk and soul party to make you forget your winter blues!

Lake Minnetonka is the funk juggernaut forging a Melbourne take on the Minneapolis Sound. Having recently released their debut album, Melbourneapolis, their 80s inspired jazz fusion and on-stage antics will leave you on a purple high.

Mayfield fuse together soulful beats, smooth melodies and powerhouse vocals that give a classic sound a modern urban twist. A year after releasing their debut album, Victim of Circumstance, at the Gaso, Carla and her crew return almost to the day, to serve up another batch of mouthwatering soul, with an extra helping of funk.

Au Dré is a collaboration between Producer/Keyboardist extraordinaire JamBau (James Bowers) and Vocalist/Trumpeter Audrey Powne. The pair fuse together maximalist electronic music and late 70‘s/early 80’s Disco/Dance music, delivering the perfect combination of a contemporary “banger” with the sophistication and energy of old-school funk and R’n’B. As James continues to work feverishly on new recordings, Audrey will be performing their compositions solo for us, giving us ALL the trumpet solos! So don't miss Au Dré, Mayfield and Lake Minnetonka as they rock Melbourneapolis and the City of Yarra with more funk than is healthy for a Thursday night!

Tickets are $15+bf from Oztix or else $20 at the door. Ticket and merch packages available from lakeminnetonka.bandcamp.com/merch

Accessibility: In addition to the venue's commitment to making their live gigs more accessible, we are happy to accept companion cards for this gig.

Phantastic Ferniture Album Launch with Special Guests

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

The mission is obvious: Don’t overthink it. That’s evident in the urgent garage-pop perfection on Phantastic Ferniture’s self-titled debut album, and in the unconventional path the band has taken to releasing it. Phantastic Ferniture is the project of old friends Julia Jacklin, Elizabeth Hughes, Ryan K Brennan and Tom Stephens, who wanted to shake the shackles of their meticulously crafted solo work to experience a second, giddy adolescence. “I’d gone straight into folk music,” says Jacklin, “so every experience I’d had on stage was playing sad music with a guitar in my hand. I thought, I would love to know what it’s like to make people feel good and dance.” Phantastic Ferniture’s spiritual home may be the garage but they were born in a bar, specifically the hallowed basement of Frankie’s Pizza in Sydney. One late night in 2014, on Jacklin’s birthday, a group hug manifested amid the pinball machines, with all ten participants vowing to form a band. “Only four of us remembered the next day,” notes Hughes. So that there could be no backing down, these four grifters booked a gig four months in the future at the Record Crate in Glebe. They advertised it as ‘Phantastic Ferniture’s Christmas Extravaganza First and Final Gig’, then got back on with their lives. “We thought, that’s ages away, we’ll definitely have songs by then,” Hughes recalls.

On the night of the show, she and original bassist Tom Capell (later replaced by Stephens) were learning songs in the car park. “We realised in soundcheck that we were playing the same songs but in different keys,” Hughes says. An hour later they were on stage before a bemused crowd, playing ‘Take it Off’, ‘Fuckin and Rollin’ (twice) and ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey. It was glorious and from the guts; in other words, everything they’d hoped for. United by fern puns and a love of leisurewear, the band met up whenever schedules would allow, writing songs and playing smatterings of dates to an increasingly devoted audience. Eventually it was decreed that this was no side project and an album should follow. Whenever the band members could get into the same room, Brennan took the producer’s role (as well as the drummer’s seat): at Sydney’s Studios 301, Defwolf and One Flight Up, with additional vocals tracked at The Sitting Room in New Zealand. The brief? More spontaneous and less technical than their solo projects. “That was the fun part,” says Jacklin. “Ryan never played drums in bands, Liz had never been a lead guitarist, Tom didn’t play bass and I’d never just sung before’. Liz adds, ‘We wanted a low level of expertise, because a lot of good music comes from people whose passion exceeds their skill”. True enough, but Jacklin’s vengeful vocal work in the climb to each chorus of ‘Bad Timing’ (with reproachful backing vocals from Hughes) has a sophistication that eludes most singers. Jacklin also felt relief at not having to imbue deep meaning into the lyrics, so that tracks like the psych-pop ‘I Need It’ and blissed-out ‘Take it Off’ operate from a more primal level. “My first instinct was to go simple and sexy, like a lot of good pop music,” she says. Hughes agrees: “It’s ‘walking down the street, walking into a nightclub, feeling confident’.type stuff” Then there’s ‘Mumma y Pappa’ and ‘Dark Corner Dance Floor’, exuberantly youthful and brimming with newfound dark power. Only a few are precisely autobiographical, such as ‘Uncomfortable Teenager’, which draws on the adolescence of Jacklin and Hughes in the Blue Mountains (although they didn’t properly meet until they were both backpacking in Peru), where they pined for the big city action of Sydney. These days, Phantastic Ferniture are resolutely a Sydney band. Hughes and Jacklin first lived together in Glebe in a large share house / rehearsal space that was home to a revolving cast of musicians, and are now housemates again years later, in Annandale. They got their start playing at open mic nights at the Excelsior and at bars such as Sam I Am in Glebe (if you didn’t catch them back then, well, they’re grateful), and the video to ‘Fuckin and Rollin’ was filmed around Glebe’s Blackwattle Bay. In fact, they’re on something of a crusade to prove that Sydney isn’t just home to the ibis and the lockout laws. If anything, the city’s like a game of Whac-a-Mole: every time it takes a beating it bounces back. “Sydney is integral to our existence,” says Hughes, namechecking Cobra Club at Waywards, the Lansdowne, Oxford Arts Factory and the Botany View as band favourites. “The music scene is more present than people give it credit for. You just need to participate and rock up.” That Christmas Extravaganza is now an annual occurrence in Sydney, and there’ll be a smattering of shows around the album’s release on the band’s own Make Out Records (it’s also out via Polyvinyl Records, Universal Canada, and Transgressive Records internationally). With Stephens currently focusing on his solo project Tesse, the lineup of Phantastic Ferniture could best be described as ‘transient’, but nonetheless, Jacklin and Hughes find it far too liberating to be relegated to the sidelines. “This band is unlike anything else we’ve ever done so there’s no rules. It feels like we just have to let go and let it take us where it wants to go” says Hughes. “It feels really good,” Jacklin says with satisfaction. “It’s like having an alter ego.”

Freedom Time Party with Sol Nation and The Black Sistaz

Tickets $20+BF/$25 on the door. Doors 2.00 PM

Let's join together with Sol Nation, The Black Sistaz, Dario Maia and DJ-Manny to celebrate the unbelievable power of people to change and cultivate their environments from East Timor to West Papua, people have created change on every level- politically, environmentally, socially & economically.

On this day, we are celebrating unity, alliance, community, commitment and connection that has led to the 16th anniversary of independence for Timor Leste and the unyielding fight for freedom for West Papua, who have been under Indonesian occupation since 1963.

Timor Leste gained independence after Indonesia relinquished control in 1999. East Timor became the first new sovereign state of the 21st century on 20 May 2002 and joined the United Nations and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries.

Thanks to incredible strength, resilience, tenacity and fortitude of the people and its leaders, Timor has lead the way and achieved what the West Papuans have been striving for for the past 40 years.

Indonesia seized West Papua, the western half of the island of New Guinea, in 1963, shortly after the Dutch colonists pulled out. Political parties were immediately banned, nascent Papuan nationalism crushed, and tens of thousands of troops, police and special forces flooded in. In 1969 a UN-supervised sham referendum was held, and just over a thousand hand-picked representatives were bribed, cajoled and threatened into voting in favour of Indonesian rule.

A police state has shackled the vast region ever since, battling a low-level tribal insurgency and suppressing independence aspirations with such vigour that raising the Papuan national flag can land you 15 years in prison.

Only TOGETHER in unity, cohesion, solidarity and standing as one, we can create better worlds and make the change we need to see.

Join us for a drink, a dance and a song, to commemorate all the wonderful people who work hard to make our world fairer, more equitable and a better place for all of us.

Bugs 'Glue' Launch with Face Face & Tamara and The Dreams (UPSTAIRS)

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

After opening Falls Festival for triple j unearthed and touring the country off the back of their single "Neighbourhood" - including Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, and Melbourne Music Week - Brisbane’s trio of boyish blokes BUGS have returned with new single "Glue", and the announcement of their second EP "Social Slump" Due on April 13th.

Also announcing a national EP tour for May and June that takes BUGS to almost every corner of the country, new single "Glue" explores the fearful feeling that everything around you is constantly moving forward and changing while you are stuck in the same place, head space or behaviours.

The video enlists the help a bunch of local Brisbane bands – including Sweater Curse, Eliza and The Delusionals, Neighbour, and Gill Bates - to take the mic and rock out.

"Glue" is available digitally now, as well as will be available exclusively on vinyl through Domestic La La’s 7" singles club.

"Flicking through Facebook photos of people you went to school with having kids & buying homes whilst your living pay to pay off a retail wage sipping $7 Sauv Blanc from the bottle is fun, but toxic. Everyone is running their own race at their own pace, just remember that. No need for judgement in comparison to others, and certainly no need for self-deprecation. Commitment isn’t for everyone!" – Connor Brooker

With no boundaries on his selekts, prepare to hear him pop synth instilled funk rhythms, UK street soul and bad af vocal tracks in every language imaginable.

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 9.00 PM

It's gonna be May! Well, actually it already is. And it has been for bloody weeks. And that meme has been around for, like, six years. Gee times flies, huh?

Thank goodness for that, though, because if time flies it means Mr. McClelland's Finishing School is back this Friday night at The Gasometer Hotel! And not a moment too soon!

This Friday night we celebrate dancing, music and good times with a one-two punch of DJs the likes of which you have never seen (assuming you've been to Finishing School before and had your eyes closed the whole time)! That's right, we have Mr. David Shaw joining Mr. Andrew McClelland on deck!

What a combo! Who are you to say no? (You are you. Let nobody deny it. But come along and dance anyway.)

And for those that need reminding...

Mr. McClelland's Finishing School is a celebrated night of dancing to pop music.

And that means all kinds of pop music;

From The Smiths to The Beatles, from Weezer to Prince, from Belle & Sebastian to The Supremes, from Pulp to Passion Pit, from James Brown to Blur, from Rage Against the Machine to Run DMC, from The Spice Girls to Arcade Fire.

It's all for dancing.

Featuring music you really like and music you had forgotten you really like and music you will soon really like. Nobody can go from Rancid to Whitney Houston like Finishing School can.

It's crowded, sweaty and joyous. Come along and shake it.

You've been to other club nights... now come to the Finishing School.

Cheeky little doggoes SOPHISTICATED DINGO are sick of your smashed avo, craft beer and buzzfeed articles about the yoof and their inability to save money. And they’re telling you where to go in their trash punk single, ‘Yuppies’ . Yuppies make inner city living a drag. They push up the prices of avocado let alone housing! Bread is no longer something you toast but something you have to source from an artisan bakery and don’t even get me started on coffee! Good thing we have SOPHISTICATED DINGO here to cock their legs up on them. Drawing from Aussie punk, surf and garage, the band started in a loft above a garage, which for a garage band is the only answer you need. ‘Yuppies’ is fuzzed out but tuneful, fast but danceable, and visceral while poptastic.

Recorded in studios, bedrooms and rehearsal rooms - “Less The Love Between Us” is the debut album from Melbourne’s own indie garage punks The Rollercanes. At the end of 2016, The Rollercanes decided to embark on the daunting and grueling task of creating their debut album. Over the course of the next year, with a budget of approximately $17, the Melbourne locals spent every minute of free time writing and recording, what has now become, “Less The Love Between Us.” The albums lyrics are a snapshot of being in your early twenties in Melbourne, with songs about: nights out, the people they know and the people they’ve foolishly tried to impress. The Rollercanes songs are equal parts romantic and self-deprecating, with a dash of sarcasm thrown in for good measure. The Rollercanes will be launching their debut album at The Gasometer Upstairs on Saturday the 12th of May alongside Teenage Dads and Cracker La Touf.

Less The Love Between Us is out April 27 via Main Offender Records. Available on Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Bandcamp and more.

Shaun Kirk 'Howlin At The Moon' Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $13+BF/$18 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Following the recent success of his Australian ‘Midnight in Motion’ Tour which saw award winning blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk selling out numerous headline shows across the country; the one man dynamo has announced a stack of new tour dates across Australia & New Zealand to launch his soon to be released new single ‘Howlin at the Moon’ . Kirk’s first release in over 3 years will come off the back of what the 29 year old describes as a “quarter-life crisis” ignited by a US Record Deal that fell through in questionable circumstances back in 2015. Determined to overcome his disappointment and grow from it, Kirk has since spent countless hours soul searching and honing his skills as a writer and musician inside his home studio on the outskirts of Melbourne; prevailing with a fresh new sound and groove to carry him into the next phase of his ever evolving career. Recorded and co-produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Fraser A Gorman, Skipping Girl Vinegar) at A Pocket Full of Stones Studios in the sleepy beachside town of Point Lonsdale, Victoria and co written with ARIA Award Winner Joel Quatermain (Eskimo Joe) – ‘Howlin at the Moon’ is set to drop in early 2018.

Centred around a quarter life crisis that yearns for definition amongst a world having its own teething problems, the album is as impassioned as much as it is veiled in cynicism.

Recorded by Matt Chow in Fairhaven, Victoria during the autumn of 2017, the album will be released on Poison City Records in April 2018.

Joining them on this special night of nights are Chook Race, Lazertits and Porpoise Spit.

Yukon Era with Earth Tongue & AMBUR (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Since forming in high school in June of 2015 Yukon Era, through hard-work, ambition and talent have rightly carved out a name for themselves within the local and international post-punk music scenes.

Their songs are loud and melodic, quiet and chaotic. The band have created a modern and polished sound which they deliver via stubborn-ly classic garage rock. In the flesh Yukon Era's greatest asset might the bands ability to convey their well crafted tunes via a set brimming with youthful confidence to form something truly endearing, energetic and exciting.

The Auckland, New Zealand based post-punk quartet have released two well crafted EPs to critical acclaim - their first self titled EP (2016) garnered attention from Noisey and Tone Deaf and their second EP - Consume & Scratch released in late 2016 attracted interest from The New Zealand Herald, Sniffers, and The Wireless. “Five songs of spirited and shambolic garage-rock that come wrapped in a kind of Libertines-ish charm” - The Wireless.

They were the youngest band to play the coveted annual Laneway Festival in 2017 and have opened for the likes of Mac Demarco, Preoccupations, METZ, DMA’s and Mini Mansions, and were named as one of the Top 8 Kiwi Guitar Tracks of 2016 by Impose Magazine [US], Yukon Era are: "Old-fashioned rock and roll cut from the same cloth as Polvo and Fugazi – embedded with a hint of classic kiwi jangle. A post-punk band on the rise, with the confidence and skill to make it big."

The band, comprised of singer Christian Dimick, guitarist Lachie Thurlow, bassist Pierre Beasley and drummer James Dimick. will head out on a three date North Island tour this March to celebrate the release of their brand new single 'Feel' which is being released digitally on February the 16th. 'Feel' which was recorded at Red Bull studios in Auckland, cements the bands place in the post-punk world while showcasing their ever expanding musical development.

"Feel is a song that touches on personal issues within my life," says Christian. "Feeling absent from others as well as myself, along with feeling crushed by the weight of people’s expectations of me. When in reality it doesn't matter, which I can say now. But while writing the song my mind was in another place. It is nice to finally release a song off the new album out into the world. It feels like years ago we recorded it so it is a relief just to finally show it to people".

With the group having recently been announced to play The Great Escape Festival in Brighton UK in May, it's clear to all that Yukon Era are aiming high, and 2018 is going to be a big year for the band.

Klein (uk) w Various Asses, Netti, Kandere, Girlzone & DJ Spunkgunk

Tickets $22.50+BF. Doors 7.30 PM

South London based musician Klein is an artist whose neoteric vision has seen her quickly become one of the UK’s most intriguing and unpinnable producers and performers. Her often playful and restive approach to composition is instantly alluring. Samples of obscure Nigerian B-Movies clatter into jagged beats. Distant piano loops lurk in the haze whilst beguiling vocals fade in and out of the sensory World she has created.

This year has seen the release of her debut album Only, self released online and then on heart shaped diamond USB stick by DIY label Howling Owl Records, and more recently the Lagata EP that has led her to be featured in Dazed and Confused, Wire, and i-D magazine; the latter of which premiered the beautiful Akinola Davies JR directed video for Marks Of Worship – a stunning five minutes piece of murky ambience dominated by a Whatsapp sermon sent from a Nigerian Aunt. You would expect nothing less from Klein.

Following some ear-catching manoeuvres across last year’s releases, which gained her early fans like Bjork and Dev Hynes and Laurel Halo, resulting in her featuring on two tracks of Halo's new LP, Tommy marks Klein's deepest plunge yet into the 'deep, dark ocean' of her musical imagination on her Hyperdub debut. On Tommy her vocals play with fifties-esque melodies before switching to familiar tones akin to Brandy and Rodney Jerkins, her live voice and live piano playing, filtered through hyper glitchy and looped production with an loose, internal logic; cutting from angular atonality to pockets of skewered harmony. Tommy also steps things up in conceptual terms. Its eight tracks are broken down into acts that are rooted in themes of vulnerability, sisterhood and death, threading the chaotic sonics with modern operatic undertones and a Shakespearean sense of tragedy. There's a lot of bluster about originality in contemporary UK music and what rises from the noise here is a creative voice who, by her very nature plays with the construct of what pop is. This is Klein's world.

https://klein1997.bandcamp.com/

Klein will be supported by:

Various Asses Solo project from Melbourne electronic producer and drummer Raquel Solier, previously known under the guise Fatti Frances. Various Asses fuses bent trap, frantic house and fractured vocal samples

Netti Melbourne based artist that traverses metal, hip hop, punk, forming what can only be described as an unrelenting apocalyptic blast https://soundcloud.com/nxtti
