Venue w/ special guests Feed My Frankenstein & more to be announced.

After bumming around writing EPs and learning how to be musicians for several years, alternative rock band SOUL are touring Victoria!

Inspired by the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Violent Soho and Cosmic Psychos, the band are keen to do what they do best - get incredibly sweaty, play really loud and drink beer with everyone. If you like grunge, alternative rock, loud noises or even just want to fight your fear of leaving the house, come and smash your head around to a bunch of wicked bands. It's going to be one of THOSE sort of shows.

Special guests for this show are Feed My Frankenstein who will be closing the night with their inimitable brand of punk/rock/cheese-inspired music, as well as more yet-to-be-announced acts who will be smashing out sets that will make your ears get all warm and fuzzy!

Entry $10 Doors at 7pm Playing times announced soon!

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)

Hot Actionホットアクション is the new band with lots of cold and dreamy synthlines and angry heartbreaking rhymes by Louis Roach ( AVOID, Whipped Cream Chargers, Pets With Pets etc.) and Zayd Thring Australia's Next Dreamboat (PETS WITH PETS, Ladydreams and a brief Lost Animal ) formed at MMW's Little Band's event not so long ago.

After being on the backburner in a casual releationship, we have decided to take this shit seriously now as of Sept 2016. After condensing many different projects in to a finely crafted two peice band heavy on the 80's inspired Synth lines and Cold Wave vibes intertwined with 90's hip hop sampling, themes and rhymes. Our little drugged out bastard of a cross bred, mixedrace raved wave of electronic pop jam has been moving fast since being legitimised as Hot Action and our first fiddle, singing to Trait Records in Australia and Supporting the likes of Alex Cameron and Lost Animal's album launches.

Our latest song Streetlight Rendezvous (Rapid Transit) written about the abundance of death that has been experienced over such a tumultuous life that is lead by inner city life long musicians and friends is an example of the serious nature and no bullshit approach (maybe a little bit of bullshit) to songwriting that has been adapted in to this new project. Noisey Review: https://noisey.vice.com/en_au/article/listen-to-hot-actions-touching-requiem-to-a-lost-friend

Our rodeo is quite old and we don't need any google maps to find our way around the block. So we've decided to have a little Redidency to showcase our new stuff and sell some tapes.

2.3.17 We have V (Berlin / Melb)'who is someone that I wasn't aware of more than a week ago. It's all i've been listening now since. I don't know much about V other than the dark and deep synth's and heavy beats that accompany the catchy noise that formlates some amazing and brooding songs and music. They seem to be able to hold a conversation in German and French too. So, no bullshit. and V loves Cats! https://soundcloud.com/vlovescats

Heat Wave are also playing our first night upstairs. I didn't realise this was our friend Kalindy from Sydney and Her Boyfriend Kurt Eckhardt of Astral Skulls. Dead End Town is the nearly the perfect Synth Punk Pop Song paying homage to The Cramps and The Screamers and other early punk bands incorporating the future confuse box of analogue synths. https://soundcloud.com/heatwaveau

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

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

FREE ENTRY, Doors 7.30 PM

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

FACEBOOK EVENT

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

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

Biscotti blends elements of synth pop, disco, hip-hop and funk to create an alternative pop spectacle that commands your full attention. Through her cinematic lens Carla Ori conjures other worldly landscapes with her evocative layering of sounds, constantly astounding with her unadulterated glee and daring compositions. The time has now come to unveil Biscotti’s first full length feature - her debut album ‘Like Heaven in the Movies’

Listen to 'Like Heaven in the Movies' here: listenrecords.bandcamp.com/album/like-heaven-in-the-movies

"Biscotti - the project of Carla Ori - presents a similar experience of bliss on her debut album. It's an auditory heaven drawing on the best of synth pop, disco, film scores, hip-hop and funk."

  • Simon Winkler, RRR Feature Album

“The entire album takes you through a variety of different cinematic scenes that all evoke different emotions within you and help you vividly visualise some of the most outrageous and intriguing worlds. There are pieces of synth-pop and disco sprinkled within each track and a healthy dose hip-hop and funk to finalise the amazing avant-garde recipe.” - Purple Sneakers

"A perfect pop song in every way, the song has an air of 80’s influence, and the vocal delivery and instrumentation is utterly flawless." - Speaker TV

ILUKA 'Blue My Soul' Tour

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

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

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

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

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

Butterfingers 'Big Night Out' Tour with Special Guests

Tickets $25+BF.

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

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

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

GA Presales are available from Monday 20th of February.

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

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

Bunker Open Air with Dax J & More

Tickets $30+BF. Doors 3.00 PM

Dax J is a London born, Berlin based artist, known as a powerful DJ, producer and label boss. His trademark sound is on constant rotation from the biggest DJ’s in Electronic music today.

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.

Luke Brennan Single Launch with Cyanide Thornton, Girlatones, Tré Burt

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.

Realignment and Bobby have both received love and airtime on Triple J and 4ZZZ, and have climbed the Triple J Unearthed charts, gaining spins and warm reviews.

“Can write a chorus. Glad to have discovered you today! The Ooohs you work in toward the end are lovely too.” - Max Quinn (Triple J) on Realignment

“Losing a dog is the worst! RIP Bobby. A lovely tribute.” - Bridget Hustwaite (Triple J) on Bobby

AFP Takes Over The Gasometer

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

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)

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.

Vale Lager will be racing out of the taps at $6 a pint and the famous $12 burger and chips will have to be seen to be believed.

From the humble beginnings of a music sharing group, some friends sharing like-minded music have created an event with a similar ethos - the playing and sharing of good music. Luckily for us, we’re able to break free of our online home and share some music to you IRL with four members providing tracks for the night.

Set times and more info to come soon.

Important note: this is a fully inclusive event for people across any gender, sexuality, or race. If there is any discrimination or you feel unsafe, please seek one of the DJ's, bar staff or security and we will ensure that we do our best to ratify the issue.

“Ahead of the pack as an imaginative singer-songwriter, capable of crafting dynamic indie rock.” - Pitchfork (Best New Music)

“A talent to be reckoned with.” - Rolling Stone (4/5 stars)

"Car Seat Headrest’s Teens of Denial is not just the rock album of the year, but may be the emergence of a new musical genius." - The Saturday Paper

Will Toledo of CAR SEAT HEADREST is coming to Australia for the very first time for the Laneway tour.

Before signing to Matador Records in 2014, the 23 year old artist had already crafted an 11 album catalogue of staggering depth, all self-released on Bandcamp. His formal studio debut, 2016’s Teens of Denial, has everything you want from a rock album within one song. Check out album opener ‘Fill In the Blank’. With inspired guitar riffs, ambitious indie-rock anthems, and clever reflections of 20-something life, Teens of Denial is one of the best albums of the year. Live, Car Seat Headrest performs with a full band.

For The Gasometer Hotel show, Car Seat Headrest will be supported by low-fi indie pop act Jarrow, who recently shared his outstanding debut LP 2003 Dream.

Tickets $50+BF. Doors 7.30

Just two days before joining Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band for his first AAMI Stadium show, the re-formed JET return to their Melbourne pub rock roots to play an intimate warm up show for friends and fans at the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood.

This Melbourne homecoming will be JET’s first live appearance in over six years, and promises a return to the blistering live show that paved the way for Dingley’s finest to make the rapid leap from cramped stages to arenas following the release of their classic debut album “Get Born”. The band will play all the hits and much-loved tracks from all three of their albums in what promises to be one of the gigs of the year. This will be JET’s only Melbourne headline show, and with a strictly limited capacity it will be a case of “first in, best dressed” for an opportunity to see one of Australia’s most successful bands of all time in intimate surroundings.

Tickets $5 on the door. Doors at 9.00 PM

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.

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.

Zol Balint Upstairs Residency with Joseph, Fia Fiell & Don

Tickets $5 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

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.
