Two Steps on the Water (who will be releasing their debut LP “God Forbid Anyone Look Me in the Eye” in August) are taking over the Gasometer every Tuesday night of June.

Also joining us in this monthly onslaught of emotions will be Chelsea Bleach, Geryon, kt spit, Callan, Spike Fuck, poets Jules and Kylie Supski, and DJ trixie darko coming in to wrap up the residency and dry everyone’s tears with an hour on the dance floor.

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

Free Entry. Doors 8.00PM

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

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

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

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

Joining the fellas up on stage playing live noise makers is:

LACHIE DUTHIE

Leaps and Bounds Music Festival presents, Georgia Fields & Phia - double single launch

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Joseph Liddy & The Skeleton Horses Pres. 'The Big Sarong Tour'

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

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

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

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

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

Leaps & Bounds Festival Presents, Living Legends - Phil Kakulas

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

FREEWYO - Illest Album Tour with special guests

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ANDRE WARHURST & THE RARE BYRDS (FRONT BAR) - Free Entry. Doors 7PM

He watched the bands roadies load the equipment in. He noted as the guitarist arrived suitably late to sound check, carrying only a guitar and with girlfriend on arm. This was the 90's and from behind the bar at the Gasometer Hotel, he served drinks and made enough money to buy an electric guitar. He wanted to play rock n roll, and a mean lead guitar. He now fronts Andre Warhurst and the Rare Byrds, which is a rock n roll band....

Andre is also the front man of local party RnB band Spoonful. The Rare Byrds is a rock trio that features Andre’s brother and Spoonful drummer Kit Warhurst (Rocket Science) and CJ Rhodes (Silver Night Drive). Drawing from the classic sounds of 60’s and 70’s rock n roll, Andre Warhurst and the Rare Byrds promise to get you rocking in a warm, riffy-fuzzy kinda way. Good-times!

RIPE Presents: Volume 1

TICKETS $12+BF OR $15 ON THE DOOR. DOORS AT 8.00PM

After a bit of a break from the live scene, we’re back with a new series of shows: Ripe Presents. Each gig will feature a curated lineup of our favourite Melbourne acts, and the first kicks off June 10 at The Gasometer Hotel with a cohesive selection of some of our favourite local guitar bands.

Our headliner for the night is the harmony-laden project from Melbourne-via-Adelaide mastermind Stephanie Crase, Summer Flake. Her sound is a glorious melange of genres and styles, equal parts Sonic Youth and Mac DeMarco, Hole and Karen Dalton. Having just released the wonderful 'Hello Friends' LP, they've got a host of eagerly-anticipated material to bring to you on a live stage.

Good Morning have had a massive year. Their ‘Glory’ EP, released in February via Solitaire, demonstrated the duo’s innate songwriting ability, melding lo-fi style with genuine musicianship. Lead single ‘Cab Deg’ drilled into our brains, and we’ve been hooked ever since.

Joining them will be Redspencer, the trio who grabbed our attention last year with their self-titled debut EP, out through Deaf Ambitions. ‘Happy Slow Riverbends’ struck all the right chords, before the oh-so-sweet melodies of ‘Ride It Out’ cemented it as a breakout track.

Our final band to grace the stage will be the five-piece surf outfit DIET. Relative newcomers, they’ve impressed us right off the bat with tight live performances and polished releases like 2015’s ‘Your House’, and their debut EP is just around the corner.

We’re chuffed to have brought them all together at The Gaso for a night of melodic guitar music, showcasing the strength of Melbourne’s up-and-coming talent.

Tickets are available for $12, or $15 on the door.

Local label Wondercore Island are taking over the Gasometer Hotel to celebrate their 4th birthday with a line-up of artists from across Australia and their first international signing, NZ electronic act Groeni, who will be making their Melbourne debut just in time for their EP release 'Hinde'.

Previous JJJ, RTR, RRR and FBi Feature Album holders Jaala will make their Gasometer return after their March residency and showcasing new music and their 'emotional whinge-prog nonsense".

Wholly improvised sets from both Brisbane based experimental beat-makers Vulture St Tape Gang and Swooping Duck (aka Perrin Moss, Simon Mavin and Paul Bender of Hiatus Kaiyote group) led under the guise of Lachlan Mitchell's (Laneous) project Uncomfortable Science, armed with a marker and a white board he'll lead the group through his spontaneous compositions.

In the upstairs room: Sampa The Great, fresh from supporting Kendrick Lamar, will perform a spoken word set to a lucky few who can squeeze into the room, newcomer CORIN, a FBi FM 'Best Producer' nominee, plays her nuanced and cinematic electronic soundscapes, and Clever Austin performs a rare solo beat-set of new cuts and edits from his Hide-Away Headshell Vol.1 and 2.

Joining him will be the special guest rhythm section of Sam Raines (Drums) and Rich Bradbeer (Bass), Champions of the Melbourne live music scene playing with killer acts such as Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins, Henry Wagons and Emily Ulman.

It will be a special night of raucous rock n rollin good times!

"Digging up the deepest roots of rock ‘n’ roll, Jesse Redwing is a blues hero on Crawlin’ Up The Walls. Take us back to 1959 already." - hhhhappy.com

"It's not often you hear new bands covering a classic-rock sound like Sydney-based Jesse Redwing, and that's because not everyone can pull it off. With "Comin' On", the first-ever track from the brand-new act, though, not only is he pulling it off, but he's knocking it out of the park. " - hillydilly.com

Yirrmal & Áine Tyrrell with Liz Frencham and Robbie Melville

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

Yirrmal is a new generation Indigenous Australian artist from North-East Arnhem Land. Áine Tyrrell is a new generation traditional Irish singer from the West Coast of Ireland.

Both these artists have infiltrated the hearts and minds of music lovers around Australia with their unique and powerful voices and enthralling stories, which have grown from traditional roots into truly global contemporary sounds. Yirrmal’s sound comes from living in two worlds, learning in two worlds, carrying a message, a sharing of culture. He explores new horizons with sound, mixing western styles with traditional song.

Áine’s music carries ache, honesty, and elated melodies of her traditional roots, garnishing rhythms which a thousand years of ancestry have slammed foot to floorboards in both celebration and protest. These two met on stage a year ago and stunned a room into silence. They have since both travelled and toured with the who’s-who of Australian Music and join forces again at the Gasometer for an amazing once-off evening of music on Saturday 4th June. Their journeys are ones you’d be advised to join. Very Special Guests: Liz Frencham and Robbie Melville to open the night.

NEAR MYTH - SUPPORT FROM JEFFERS LIMIT & BRAILLE FACE

Tickets $10 on door. Doors 7.30pm.

In just their third show, Near Myth bring their reductive-synth-indie to The Gasometer on Thursday June 2nd. After winning their own recording studio in a magazine competition, the Melbourne four-piece spent lost years recording, rejecting and redirecting their sound in a small bleak room above a train station. Now in 2016, in response to cabin fever, retrenchment, dry mouth, and their bassist being a Doctor of Social Theory and Cultural Studies specialising in the German Democratic Republic, Near Myth will preview songs from their forthcoming as-yet-untitled debut of music you can dance to in the shadow of extinct territories - self-produced, mastered by Mikey Young, out 2016.

Near Myth will be joined by sweet psych-pop monsters-in-waiting, Jeffers Limit, who recently launched their debut EP to a sold out Workers Club, and electronic mystery man, Braille Face, who single-handedly caused the co-founders of local label Spirit Level - aka Tim Shiel and Gotye - to relaunch their dormant imprint in order to release his debut single “Glow”.

May-time is upon us and for various wondrous reasons, Lost And Lonesome are celebrating! The Melbourne-based record label, nearing their 100th release, have decided it’s fiesta time at the Gasometer Hotel every Tuesday night for the entire month — and have we got some line-ups for you!

De Mayo extravaganza. With new songs ready to flip to tape, T.V.

ABABCd featuring Black Cab, Beaches, Habits, Loose Tooth, Lossless & Crepes

Tickets $20 + BF / $25 on door. Doors 5.30pm.

It’s a just reward for renegade filmmakers Banalarama that ABABCd’s tapings all sell out nowadays; a concept so stupidly ambitious that this underground music show is, much like the acts it features, starting to turn and subsequently explode heads both at home and abroad.

Last episode saw blazing sets from Pearls, The Ocean Party, Totally Mild and Ausmuteants but this time they’re blowing out the bill, the budget, the memory cards of the cameramen and the minds of Melbournians with SIX more of Melbourne’s greatest acts in an event of two halves - guitars and electronic.

They’ve got the garage rock furore of Loose Tooth, now signed to Milk! Records and basking in the glow of that Cloher/Barnett co-sign; jangly melodic masterminds Crepes, pillars of shoegaze BEACHES on the verge of releasing a brand new record; Lossless, a new collaboration between Oscar Key Sung and HTMLflowers which should hype anyone who saw Brothers Hand Mirror back in the day; the cathartic dance thump of HABITS and saucy kraut electro from Black Cab off the back of their new single ‘Uniforms’. MASSIVE.

The Season finale? THE grand finale? Have your say and perhaps even your writhing torso in frame at The Gasometer Hotel on Saturday May 28th as some of Melbourne’s finest filmmakers, musicians and punters unite for a festival of talent you can enjoy now and then watch again and again in the archives in the years to come.

Please note: Participation in this event includes an acknowledgement that you may be filmed by BANALARAMA for ABABCd and related media. Proudly supported by Creative Victoria.
