AFP Takes Over The Gasometer!

Tickets $50 (Booking Fee Inclusive). Doors 8.00 PM

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

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

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

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

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

HEADZ 01

Since the birth of our label and our debut release on cassette (Vol.1) in late 2014, our crew has been scattered to various parts of the world. We are not letting that get in the way, and so have decided thats it is time, to put on our first show on our home turf, Melbourne.

A bit of background info for those who don’t know... Potatoheadz was inspired by making music together with our friends in Melbourne. Potatoheadz grew out of the love of music and the idea of staying connected via a medium where we can put out the sounds that we create.

Now we are ready to bring the bedroom jams, the solo studio sessions, the collaborations, the ideas, philosophies and most importantly positive vibes to a live audience.

Let us introduce some of the HEADZ behind this event..

Edo Lang (Potatoheadz) Formerly known as DJ Oyster, Edo Lang has been a contributor to our tapes and a friend since the start. Edo Lang makes dance music with a unique mood, mysterious, looming and ‘lynchian’ in nature. https://soundcloud.com/four-heads/premiere-dj-oyster-an-enclave-phz

Sedgwick (Potatoheadz) Potatoheadz founder and original ‘head’ Sedgwick creates rhythmic and percussive music full of life. With background as a drummer you can expect musicality and vibed out grooves from our main man.
https://soundcloud.com/s-e-d-g-w-i-c-k/needs

Loure: Live (Stamp the wax) Proper sounds from Loure are to be expected. Loure has been making some quiet waves recently, keeping it sly but keeping it quality and we expect you will be pleasantly surprised by this exclusive live set from this gentleman. Check out his latest track ’Keep it real’ premiered on the esteemed Stamp the wax 2016 Advent Calendar. http://www.stampthewax.com/2016/12/19/loure-keep-it-real/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL5qst4EfquTwguSMyIX7AgS5k-UQqqUGZ&v=A-gS2z55mX4

Timurçan (Fishermans Bend / Cry baby / Sub Committee) Local hero and friendly face in the community, Timurçan will be doing his thing as usual. Those who know, would have seen him working at the defunct and thoroughly missed Crybaby record shop (now operating as Cry Baby Records) Those who don’t know, expect some fine selections yeah?

6AM at the Garage No introduction is necessary really, but for those who are interested, 6AM have been doing a lot to solidify the local scene in Melbourne. While running a blog and hosting podcasts the duo Benny Rausa and Liam Alexander have been putting on events and Djiing respectively throughout the years.

On this night at The Gasometer Hotel you will get to meet some of the Headz, Collaborators, Familia, Friends & Faces behind this label. Come and catch some exclusive DJ sets from our humble gang.

PIKELET After having been a little shy of playing gigs in Melbourne for a while, and spending the last six months playing all around Europe, New Zealand and Sydney, Pikelet is returning to a Melbo show to bask in the warmth of home-crowd good vibes.

Pikelet will be showcasing some new material that's currently being recorded, as well as some tunes from 2016 release TRONC. https://chaptermusic.bandcamp.com/album/tronc

They have selected two of their favourite bands in Melbourne to play:

THE SHABBAB The inimitable and untameable energy of The Shabbab has been a source of inspiration for many since they started many years ago. With politically conscious lyrics set against frenetic beats/guitar/keys and the most exciting front-person in Melbourne they never fail at stirring even the most cool of crowds into action. https://theshabbab.bandcamp.com/

CYANIDE THORNTON Cyanide Thornton are relatively new as a group, though you will recognise members of the band from various other excellent music acts that you no doubt also heart. Cyanide Thornton are the kind of band that rip your heart out and then massage it back to health again, all alongside incredibly adept musical ideas to keep the brain-cogs ticking. Sure to be your next fave if you're not already completely obsessed. https://soundcloud.com/user-541335156

This show takes place on stolen Wurrundjeri land. We would like to pay respects to elders past and present and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

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

Luke Brennan and his band hit the Gasometer to launch ‘One True Love’, the first single from the forthcoming album Lovers Leap.

This new studio work comes off the back of a fruitful 2016 recording and performing as a member of Big Smoke and Truly Holy, as well as the bands behind Fraser A Gorman and Leah Senior.

Lovers Leap is sometimes dense and sometimes weightless. Expansive daydream ballads are balanced with subtle long-form grooves. Lyrics-wise, philosophy gives way to humour; folk clichés show up in strange contexts; ultimately, romance reigns. It’s a search for the extremely universal within the extremely personal.

Don’t miss the incredible dead-pan power-pop of Girlatones; the intense and sparse magic of Cyanide Thornton; and the cool and nostalgic garage-folk of San Francisco’s own Tré Burt.

Tickets are $10, available from thegasometerhotel.com.au or at the door.

He has performed for the most renowned clubs and festivals in the world including; Berghain, Awakenings, Dommune, Fabric, Reaktor and Glastonbury to name a few.

In 2015 Dax released his highly acclaimed debut album “Shades of Black” on his own label “Monnom Black.” Mixmag awarded it “Album of the Month”, it reached the No.1 spot on Juno Records with Hardwax describing it as “Brilliantly Banging”.

His current and past productions have earned Dax BBC Radio 1 airplay on multiple occasions throughout the years, including having his tracks featured in the BBC’s Essential Mix episodes from Dave Clarke and most notably in Ben Klock’s award winning Essential Mix of the Year in 2015.

He’s released records on seminal labels including; Deeply Rooted House, Soma, Fondation Sonore, Mindtrip, EarToGround, Arts, and has been remixed by a collection of the Techno scenes’ key players such as Shifted, Phase, Ryan Elliot, Truss, Jonas Kopp and Mark Broom.

Dax grew up listening to the UK sounds of Jungle, Drum n Bass and Garage. Being heavily influenced by Drum n Bass heroes like Goldie and Bad Company, his love for the underground meant he soon started to DJ on pirate radios at an early age of 15 whilst he was still at school. He became an avid vinyl collector buying from his local record store “Black Market” on a weekly basis, whilst at the same time producing and crafting his sound. His first vinyl releases would come in 2005 on old Jungle labels like Mickey Finn’s “Urban Takeover” under alias “Dangerous” and his own imprint back then “Xplicit Sound.” Following on from this Dax went on to discover the sounds of Techno during one summer spent in Ibiza. From this point on his passion for cutting edge 4 by 4 beats took over but the old Jungle influences are still heard today in his DJ sets and productions.

Degree educated in Music Technology, Dax runs his own studio in Berlin where he also works as a Sound and Mastering Engineer. With a constant supply of music set to be released and a packed tour schedule around the globe, the UK artist is firmly set for another successful year.

AFP Takes Over The Gasometer!

Tickets $50 (Booking Fee Inclusive). Doors 8.00 PM

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

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

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

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

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

Shining Bird with Special Guests

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

Shining Bird is an experimental pop band from the coastal town of Austinmer, NSW Australia.

Originally formed as a studio project in 2012, they released the Shade of the Sea EP, followed by their debut album ‘Leisure Coast’ on Spunk Records in 2013. The album received widespread acclaim for its unique brand of Australiana-infused dream pop. On the back of strong reviews from publications such as Rolling Stone, Russh and the Sydney Morning Herald, as well as earning Album of the Week on ABC’s Radio National, ‘Leisure Coast’ helped propel Shining Bird towards a new bunch of listeners.

Spunk launched the signing of the band with a clip to first single ‘Distant Dreaming’ that has been watched over 300,000 times on YouTube and was named Rage TV’s ‘Indie clip of the Week’.

Sydney’s FBi Radio listed ‘Distant Dreaming’ the third most played track of 2013.

After touring extensively in their own right, Shining Bird has played alongside acts such as Kurt Vile, Franz Ferdinand, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Drones, Father John Misty, and appeared at numerous festivals including Fairgrounds, Secret Garden, Sydney Festival, Melbourne Music Week and Newtown Festival. The band’s live shows earned them a finalist nomination for ‘Best Live Act’ in FBi’s Sydney Music, Art & Culture Awards in 2014.

For the past year the band have been making regular trips to the Blue Mountains of NSW to write and record new material. Trekking to remote lookouts and watching classic Australian films fueled the creative process. After much anticipation by fans, the band emerged with ‘Rivermouth’, a track steeped in Australian bush and coastal imagery, that reflects a maturity of songwriting and production. The track is filled with layers of detail that offer a different journey on every listen

FACEBOOK EVENT

After an extended gestation period in a suburban bedroom, Country Women’s Association will emerge fully formed to play their first Melbourne show, with support from Dominic Byrne of Little Red, Greasers and New Gods fame.

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

The solo project of artist and musician Sophie Treloar (also of Melbourne outfit Sunbeam Sound Machine) POPPONGENE’s music is laconic and hypnotic, sun-soaked and lush, recalling the rainforests that surround her Belgrave home, and the beaches of her native Byron Bay.

Debut single “Do It Girl” is self-affirming and aspirational, described by 3RRR’s Simon Winkler as an “absorbing psychedelic adventure”.

VACATIONS 'Vibes' Launch with Dom Kelly, Slowcoaching & Brunga's Band (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $5 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

“The Newcastle community keeps delivering new bands to fall for - case in point here.” - Dave Ruby Howe (Triple J): Vacations are the local sweethearts of Newcastle, their unique sound of jazz rock has won over a devoted fanbase in their hometown. A part of the No-Fi music and arts scene in Newcastle, Vacations are no strangers to wild house parties and packed out rooms where they've earned their stripes performing live. This has lead them to support bands like Hockey Dad, Skegss, and Dappled Cities, and see them play shows outside of their Steel City in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne in their short time over a year since playing.

They’ll be embarking on their first headline tour over January, 2017, to promote the follow up to their debut EP, Days, with Vibes, their 2nd EP. Only a two month gap since they released Friends, a collaborative four track release with artists from Australia and America, there’s no signs of slowing down for Vacations.

They’ve received radio play on stations like FBi Radio and Triple J Unearthed as well as press from NYC blog, Cereal and Sounds. Their debut EP, Days, as been streamed on Spotify 100,000 times since it was released on Spotify on April 20th, 2016, 80,000 of those plays are from the USA alone. Days actually came out September 3rd in 2015 through No-Fi Records as a CD/digital release, which makes their reception in the USA more striking. The connections made from Friends has only solidified Vacations ties with America.

A band to keep on your radar, Vacations are known for their intimate and proficient, yet funny and loveable, live performances. Changing from dad rock riffs to sweet sing-a-longs that make the crowd sway, and everything in-between, at a moments notice.

The gaso had a make over since last year, things have changed and things stay the same.

Opening party is $10. We know y'all love it free and we're gunna keep it that way but we got a big shipment of goods coming in from the docs that'll make Daydreams 2017 better than any that came before. It's somewhat illegal and we have to pay off customs so hence the $10 for the first one.

Avoid that cue and get the fuck in early.

Forever Ends Here 'Imagine This' Tour with Special Guests

Tickets $15+BF/$35+BF VIP. Doors 1.00 PM

On August 19, Sydney pop/rockers Forever Ends Here released their highly anticipated debut album titled ‘Imagine This’. Fresh off the road from supporting Canadian band Simple Plan, Forever Ends Here will hit the road on their own headlining tour in January 2017.

The four young 20-somethings from Sydney’s North Shore dropped the first teaser of their full length in February (2016) with the release of ‘Chapters’. In May (2016), the band released their second single, ‘Search The Night’, to fans without warning – the accompanying music video shot on Sydney’s famous Harbour.

Since the band’s inception in 2011, Forever Ends Here – featuring Brothers Luke (Vocals / Guitar) and Kane McChesney (Drums), Mav Burnett (Bass) and Arran Barker (Guitar) – have matured musically since their 2013 release of the ‘From Where I’d Rather Be’ EP. Having garnered support slots with the likes of Simple Plan, Tonight Alive, Short Stack, Hands Like Houses and Neck Deep the band have amassed a solid fan base with four of their own headlining tours under their belt and over 17,000 Facebook likes.

‘Imagine This’ has been three years in the making. “We've really grasped the importance of doing what feels right to us,” Luke says. “We're writing songs that make us feel good and I think that's the most important thing you can do.”

“The album feels much more cohesive, it feels more progressive and it’s a work that we are more proud of than anything we have released in the past,” says Kane.

In the space of five short years, the four piece have amassed a following that rivals the local scene that’s flooded with aspiring pop-punk bands.

Forever Ends Here have always maintained a reputation for their fun and energetic live shows, the the59thsound.com website describing their performance “without a single flaw”.

“Forever Ends Here shows have always been about the energy and the vibe,” says Kane.

“We spend so much time putting together new and exciting set lists and song arrangements,” adds Luke. “We do everything we can to make sure you have the best time”.

Thursdays in January bring a wide spanning group of music makers, visual artists and DJs to The Gasometer, curated by Melbourne electronic musician Zól Bálint (Zoltan Fecso).

The line-up reflects his love for the incredible local scene of boundary-pushing musicians working in the many different styles he is influenced by.

Zol’s highly improvised live shows combine guitar playing with electronics to manipulate sounds in real time, flowing between highly textured and delicately minimal, electronic and organic, dance, nod and sway.

POPPONGENE SUMMER RESIDENCY WITH WITH WAY DYNAMIC & GREAT OUTDOORS (UPSTAIRS)

TICKETS $7+BF/$10 ON THE DOOR. DOORS 8.00 PM

Every Wednesday in January, POPPONGENE brings her brand of devotional dream-pop to the Gaso upstairs. The solo project of artist and musician Sophie Treloar (also of Melbourne outfit Sunbeam Sound Machine) POPPONGENE’s music is laconic and hypnotic, sun-soaked and lush, recalling the rainforests that surround her Belgrave home, and the beaches of her native Byron Bay.

Debut single “Do It Girl” is self-affirming and aspirational, described by 3RRR’s Simon Winkler as an “absorbing psychedelic adventure”. Along with its heavy-lidded B-side “Belgravey”, these are the first tastes of POPPONGENE’s upcoming EP, to be released in 2017. To usher in the new year, POPPONGENE and her band will soundtrack midsummer Wednesday nights, accompanied each week by a host of Melbourne’s finest friends, including label-mates 808s and Greatest Hits and Melbourne mainstays Great Outdoors, all equipped to turn the Gaso into an upstairs oasis.

Parcels are a disco-pop group from Byron Bay Australia. But yearning for the cooler breezes of Europe’s musical hub , the band moved to Berlin to apply their electro-groove tunes to the big stage. Over the last two years, the five 20 years olds have played shows across Europe, signed with hip-French label Masion Kitsune and began releasing their second EP ‘Hideout’. Live, Parcels provide a dance party with infectious grooves, sparkling electronics and a five man vocal harmony explosion. With the European winter approaching, Parcels are returning home for the warm sands and to re-connect with their home audience.

Hooking up with Melbourne groovers The Lovely Days, this night will be a unstoppable party, with a sweet retro touch. Don’t miss Parcels debut Melbourne show!

Natalie Gauci - Two Sets!

Tickets $18+BF/$25 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Natalie Gauci is an extraordinary artist, a singer, songwriter, musician and producer with a very powerful voice and an array of exquisitely wrought personal songs with huge crossover appeal.

Natalie auditioned and won Australian Idol. After that exhilarating and life changing experience Natalie went on a journey of self discovery.

After releasing Ray Of Love (Tune In Tokyo) and touring through Europe Natalie took time to reflect, moved to London and put her heart and soul into being a singer/songwriter.

Determined to record the music that was in her head through these moments of uncertainty, Natalie gradually pieced together a collection of songs in the form of the ‘Free Falling EP’ released March 2016.

The release reinforces Natalie’s ability as a songwriter and showcases a return to her musical roots, without compromise. This is Natalie Gauci’s journey of rediscovery and after 8 years she’s found her voice again.

Having successfully crowd funded her new Album “The Real Journey” which is set for release March 2017, Natalie is embarking on a pre tour in Australia to showcase her new material (and old), to her fans at home mid Jan 2017.

Theme Team & The Sand Dollars

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

The bookers double booked us, so we thought 'bugger it, let's co-headline an end-of-year show at The Gasometer Hotel. IT'S LIKE LIMP BIZKIT SAY "KEEP ON ROLLIN' BABY...YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS."

The Sand Dollars are a four-piece ‘Surfadelic' band from Melbourne. The boys are determined to have you on their side, and they make it hard not to feel that way. Their live shows are nothing if not charming and they will have you shaking your hips and stomping your feet the whole way through.

Theme Team are playing a special one off Christmas/New Year show - so if you can't catch them down at New Years on the Hill, get to the Gaso for some ripping good Theme Team times. Join them as they venture into the themes of Videogameland, TV-land, and SImpsons land, and if you're lucky you might even get to play some Mario Kart on the big screen...

It's this kind of CAN DO spirit which makes both bands equal parts entertaining, reliable and solvent. Get get down down down da-down.
