After an eventful year of touring throughout their native Australia – including runs with labelmates MONO and like-minded pioneers Tortoise – and featuring alongside the work of artist David Hockney at the National Gallery of Victoria, Tangents return with their new album New Bodies, another stylistic detour that continues their rummage through countless varieties of electronics, rock, dub, noise, and free improv jazz that defines the group’s acclaimed aesthetic. Celebrating the release of New Bodies, the group settle into the Gasometer upstairs room for two intimate performances on July 19th and 20th, co-presented by cult electronic label Nice Music.

Dandelion Wine 'Unlikely Impossible' launch with ZÖJ & Trappist Afterland

Tickets 10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors at 7.00PM

Dandelion Wine launch their new single "Unlikely Impossible" before heading off on their ninth European tour. "Unlikely Impossible" is their first release after an unfeasibly long absence since 2010's "All Becompassed By Stars" and captures the otherworldly down tempo realms in which they dwell. Driven by the band's trademark tapestry of old world instruments (hammered dulcimer, cello and sansula on this outing) with electronic beats and ethereal vocals, "Unlikely Impossible" invites you on a fairytale journey through enchanted forests and subconscious fears. With unicorns.

Joinging them will be ZÖJ and Trappist Afterland.

ZÖJ are a thrilling combination of Persian music and post rock motifs featuring Gelareh Pour on vocals and Kamancheh and Brian O'Dwyer (Warpigs) on drums. Gnostic-inspired psych folk multi instrumentalists Trappist Afterland have just returned from their second UK tour in support of their latest album "Se(VII)en" on Sunstone Records.

Thought it about time I played another full band show. New name, new band, new songs, same old banter though, promise.

Got a bunch of legend freaks together as 'The Self-esteems' for this show, in an effort to bolster mine.

As far as the supports at this show, its basically a festival:

DAVID WESTERN (with full band) - cant wait to get Joe Orton drunk and convince him to join my band too. But enough about Joe, Dave's gunna melt you, all of you.

EAGLEMONT(solo) - I begged her to be on this lineup because everyone's been talking about her round town and her instagram bio is better than yours.

SLOWCOACHING(solo) - I never used to like Dean as a guy, always preferred his music over his company, and now all these years later we are quite good friends and I still prefer his music over his company, that's saying something.

Once again, the police fined a streaker at this year's Reclink Community Cup.

Streaking is a part of Australian life. Names like Helen D'Amico, that bloke who star jumped nude at England vs Australia in 1975, and that serial pest who did that impressive nude run at State Of origin a few years back go down in Australian legend. At the 2018 Community Cup, the annual tradition of streakers during the game was greeted with rapturous applause by all … except Victoria Police.

Bron has been fined for doing nothing except show us her finest birthday suit.

On Thurs July 26th we’re standing in solidarity and getting behind our nude friend by throwing her a party featuring:

WHITE VANS Spiral Perm Puppetry Of The Penis Go Get Mum Go-go Sapien The Real Hot Bitches 80s Dance Troupe - Melbourne Branch and THE Rockdogs 2018 Supergroup!!!

Cecil Turbine will be releasing their first single 'You Come' upstairs at The Gasometer

Described as Pretty-Noise, as sad and absurd as it is loud.

Somewhere between Sigur Ros and James Blake, his strange rambling lyrics, odd grooves, and indulgent dynamics never stray too far from pop sensibilities.

With loops feeding into loops Cecil Turbine creates soundscapes of complex chaos, every listener hears different melodies almost collaborating with the songs to make something unique for them.

Sweater curse have also performed on the festival circuit securing spots on the likes of Blurst Of Times, Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Against The Grain and Secret Garden.

Heading back into the studio, sweater curse are now working on their debut EP with producer Fletcher Matthews (Dear Seattle, Clews, Columbus) with their next single highly anticipated.

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors at 7:30PM

David Dondero is an American songwriter with a catalogue spanning 20 years. Originally from Duluth, Minnesota he currently lives on “the Isle of Corolla”. According to him, it’s a rental car with a population of 1 but he’s moving soon for temporary asylum in yet another rental car rambling through Australia. You may have seen him there once as a support act for Darren Hanlon. They’ve toured together many times in the US and Down Under. The two originally met while hiding from a man with a gun at a house show in Omaha. Long story. Hanlon has also released one of Dondero’s albums entitled # Zero with a Bullet on his Flippin Yeah Record label back in 2012. His songs range from the light hearted ‘Don’t be Eyeballin’ My Po’ Boy’ (written to pay homage to the great sandwiches of New Orleans after the flood) to ‘Boxer’s Fracture’ (a song written in response to the endless flow of mass shootings in America). He sings about paranoia and complacency with the song ‘Easy Chair.’ “Take a selfie with a mushroom cloud as the backdrop while you smile so proud. Set the image effect to 1945. Wonder if you’ll still be alive to see how many likes it got” A true road rambler and highway gambler, in love with the living and the dead. He’s a self proclaimed “ convenience store connoisseur” and “studies highway archaeology and the poetry yet written” throughout the world.

Sunrise Chaser is a tale of weekend adventures, starting when the sun sets on a Friday (or a Tuesday...

I'm bringing my band, HANDSOME and Carersorry (of Leftprojects) too!

I know I'm about to release an album, but I've created this introspective little cover of Rufus Du Sol’s Innerbloom - it's below in the comments. I also quoted myself as saying:

“I love this song because it reminds me of some of the more special moments in my life. It perfectly sums of the vulnerability of shared euphoria.... It reminds me of the more maudlin parts of extreme happiness.”

There's some dark shit happening in our world at the moment, so let's shine a little light where we can, by focusing on what we enjoy, and what brings positivity to ourselves and the people around us. I'm talking music, I'm talking lovely funny people, and I'm talking out of body experiences.

Ryan Oliver Single Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Contrary to his melancholic and realistic approach, Ryan Oliver is an optimistic artist; a free spirited, endearing natured deep thinker contrasted by an element of Aussie cheek. The light and shade you experience in his world is indicative of the planet around, representing the harsh reality of the state of society and the complexities of everyday relationships, all taken with a grain of salt. Sonically, Ryan intertwines honest melody with spacious atmospheres, whilst maintaining a rootsy and earthy foundation. Not Having You is the debut single from former Oliver’s Army frontman and multi- instrumentalist. In 2016, feeling an undeniable urge to break free from city life and the constant pulse of Melbourne, Oliver relocated to the fringes of Gippsland to isolate himself and refocus his energies into making music that would be cathartic and make sense of the intricacies of living in a thriving city.

Not Having You tells a familiar story of a close relationship, one that may have progressed to being more intimate than they had anticipated. The notion that having a friendship with someone you know to be a forbidden fruit is still preferable to not being around them at all. Its a personal struggle and a difficult decision that many have to go through and is a contentious one.

Ryan plays all instruments on the EP and it was recorded in Yarraville with producer Matthew Neighbour who has worked with Matt Corby, Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird, Jen Cloher, The Avalanches, Missy Higgins amongst others. Ryan will be celebrating the launch of the new song with full band in mid 2018, with the full EP sure for release later in the year.

Following the success of their debut release ‘Do What You Want’, Albert Salt and Flamingo Jones follow up with 4 more minutes of groovy goodness, only this time they’ve buried a heartfelt message in amongst all of the disco delight. A lovesong for the dancefloor; ‘It’s You’ is a message to a loved one that ‘we’re gonna be just fine, you and me.’

The track features plenty of powerful synthesis and an interstellar soundscape from the almighty Juno-106, as well as the distinctive vocal harmonies that have become something of a signature for Juno Disco.

War Plane Single Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

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

WARPLANE (guitar, drums, synth/vocal) exists to explore comfort and discomfort. Melodies repeated start to feel hypnotic or unsettling. From those states, a subtle shift can feel revelatory. Like a new crack in the wall suddenly letting a shard of light in. Riffs and phrases fold back on themselves - more stylised with each repeat - slowly giving rise to unrepeatable events.
Warplane combines geometric guitar lines, propulsive drums that verge on the tribal, ghostly synths, subs that embrace or unsettle, and vocals that float like an ephemeral scent that you can’t quite place. It is a band forensically examining the less obvious choices. This is not pop music.

DRIFT is the debut single by Warplane. A stark vocal strives like a candle trying to illuminate a cavern. Smoky synth melodies emerge wafting through the ribcage of guitar, only to dematerialise. The insistent two-step tom-tom beat is a tug on the sleeve from someone whose eye contact you were trying to avoid. Drift is available to stream or download on August 2.

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.”

Museum '18 Presents: Laura, Because of Ghosts, This is Your Captain Speaking & More

Tickets $20+BF/$25 on the door. Doors at 7.30PM.

Four bands stand out as the leading lights of the Melbourne post-rock genre in the early/mid 2000s and while Laura, Because of Ghosts, This Is Your Captain Speaking and International Karate each crafted very individual styles, they are all bound by an aesthetic that speaks to the vast Australian landscape and helped to develop a uniquely Australian instrumental sound. These four bands are re-forming for a special one-off reunion show, ‘Museum 18’. These are the bands that took Melbourne post-rock around the globe, with more than a dozen albums between them, releases on labels in the UK, Europe and Japan and North American, Asian, UK and European tours.

Melbourne justifiably boasts about its rock’n’roll pedigree, producing world-renowned rock and indie acts and hosting more gigs every week than almost any city in the world - but when they write the musical history of our city, they will also need to include a chapter about the incredibly vibrant instrumental postrock scene in Melbourne in the 2000s.

Melbourne post-rock developed a cult underground following at this time, built on a special camaraderie amongst the bands and a zeitgeist that saw similar concentrations of like-minded acts in cities such as Montreal. The pinnacle of the movement revolved around a monthly instrumental curated night called MUSEUM and was held at the now long-gone Planet Café in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. The night hosted more than 80 bands over two years, with nearly all of them being instrumental acts.

Along with sold-out shows at venues such as The Rob Roy, The Corner Hotel, HiFi Bar and the East Brunswick Club, when arthouse music still thrived in suburbs now known for million dollar houses, the scene coalesced around regular appearances on Owen McKern’s Sunday afternoon instrumental show on 3RRR’s, ‘Delivery’.

Saturate yourself in the sound of Melbourne in the 2000s, with visuals created for each band by esteemed art-maker Aidan Phrase one of the original projection artists for Museum. Working with imagery from the original Museum series, Phrase will present refracted angles on the past and the present in a visual retrospective. Melbourne-based sound engineer extraordinaire, Nao Anzai will ensure that the show is an incredible immersive sonic experience.

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.

Shag Rock 'Double Life' Tour - Melbourne with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

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

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.

With creative relationships and aesthetic cogency dating back more than a decade, it’s something of a surprise that Brisbane’s McKisko (Helen Franzmann), Melbourne’s Seagull (Chris Bolton) and the Pacific Ocean’s Jessie L Warren (Jessie L Warren) have taken so long to arrange a tour with each other. Making up for lost time, it will be the East Coast’s rare fortune to spend evenings with this trio through mid-late July. Melbourne is no exception, catch them at the Gasometer for an intimate matinee event on Sunday 15th July.

CASA House Fundraiser with Saatsuma, Huntly, Elizabeth (Totally Mild) & More

Tickets $17+BF/$20 on the door.

The Gasometer Hotel believes we can do more. So much more. To ensure that everyone feels safe, whether it be on our dancefloor, on the walk home, or at home itself. Fear of our fellow person as we walk home from a night out shouldn't be a natural instinct. Keys shouldn't be between fingers, outfits shouldn't be moderated. We can do better, we can do more.

In hope of not seeming like a wealth of hot air, we've decided to put together an event that will hopefully do some small part in helping those affected by these fears, and the actions of those much smaller than their victims.

All funds for this event go towards the CASA House, and ensuring the artists are covered for their performances.

We've built a wonderful lineup of some of Melbourne's finest artists, with a range of genres showcased and a few surprises still to come.

It'd mean the world to us if you came and supported. This isn't an issue we take lightly.

Hobson's Bay Coast Guard with Moonlover & Electric Toothbrush

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

G’day Chickies!

Hobsons Bay Coast Guard are primed and ready to release their second single “Surf 1”!

This ones landing with a music video that we will show ya pretty soon if you are good n' nice 2 each other. To celebrate HBCG are playing a one off specially curated set titled 'THE SURF 1, HOUR OF POWER'! Where HBCG, will play their new single, non-stop, flowing between their current set and new unreleased material!

Joining the party will be some lovely friends: Moonlover and Electric Toothbrush!

With live poetry by Poppy Stone!

For now why not take our 'Surf1' quiz? Find out which part of the song you are!

If you were a musical instrument what would you be? 1 ) A bass - it’s hard to make mistakes on the ‘big kids’ guitar 2 ) The drums! Pow! 3 ) A guitar of course! I’m no dweeb 4 ) An even louder guitar!!! (Sorry. More instruments don’t exist)

You wake up. Do you: 1) Go back to sleep and continue that weird sexy dream about the secret world of Alex Mac. 2) Make breakfast 3) Wait for the demon who sits on your chest every night while you sleep to dissipate so you can get out of bed 4) Jump out of bed and run to the tram. You're late for work! Again!

Surfing to you is: 1) A form of escapism. You like to be alone with the dolphin world to get away from the daily turn of the gear. 2) Your mantra: the howl of the ocean tingles your every whisker, you sleep on the sand, and sea salt tastes just like mommy’s tears 3) What the cooler, stronger, more progressive girls do 4) “Breadsticks” in parseltongue

Ok, imagine yourself as your favourite aquatic animal. It’s a stingray? Good. What star sign are you? 1) Aquarius rising 2) Capricorn/Gemini cusp 3) Democrat 4) Nihilist baby

Now add up all the numbers of your answers and see what part of the song you are:

4 - 7 You’re the INTRO! An early riser with something to prove, you’re fiery, organised and like punching the air in the shower a few times to charge up that aggressive politeness you’re so famous for. You don’t wait for the drum-roll, the drum-roll waits for you! Unlike the rest of your friends and family... not that you have a chip on your shoulder or anything. Why would you? I don’t know, maybe it’s the fact that every time you get to your dinner plans you’re the first one there? Is it just you or are your friends real assholes? You even brought wine! Just once you wish you could be on fucking garlic bread duty - I bet tonight’s GBD won’t even show up. Another grandparent in hospital? How many fucking grandparents do you even have garlic bread guy?? This whole narrative is REALLY starting to lose credibility man.

8 - 11 You’re the VERSE(s)! What’s the most important part of a song? What’s the most important part of a person’s LIFE? It’s arguably the verse! You’re the main course of a three course meal! You’re the only course of a lethargic Wednesday night viewing of postcards with Mum and Dad! You’re the sausage in the bun! The bacon in the BLT! You’re the continuous stream of meat metaphors in this personality summary! You’re shy and unassuming, but gracious and heroic! You let your friends shine and your enemies also shine. Everyone wants a juicy piece of you and your time and you’ll be damned if you don’t cave into every single one of their demands with a fake smile and a deeply suppressed sigh.

12 - 15 You’re the CHORUS! Everyone knows that one person who’s always repeating the same stories and subsists on a diet of exclusively potato foods - It’s you! You dress well and have a cute but abrasive falsetto. You're emotional and serious but nearly always never not fun to be around! Your friends sigh with relief when you arrive at an awkward social gathering and sigh with relief when you leave. You like to consider yourself the most important person in the room - which is especially easy when you are! Right?? Right????? Look me in the eye and say it. Mum? Are you even listening???

16+ You’re the SOLO! Jesus you’re cool! But not nearly as cool as you 7 seconds from now! Sunglasses indoors, surfboard on the roof-racks, somehow pulling off vests - you’re a miracle of modern suavity. You tear through the fabric of life like a spoon through pre-microwaved butter, taking no prisoners and never stopping for a lunch break! You’re that employee that makes everyone else feel bad for not putting in overtime even though there is nothing to gain over-working yourselves for the cruel despot of capitalistic greed! Your labour is stolen daily by the bourgeoisie for their own selfish desires! You are the proletariat and the lumpenproletariat! Seize the means of production!!! Unite!!!!

Emerging talent, Eliott, whose gut-wrenching lyrics and arresting vocals will leave you enamoured, today announces her debut headline shows.

Wednesday 11 July / the Gasometer Hotel (Upstairs), Melbourne Ticketing & Information @ https://bit.ly/2ISqGCl

--

Her debut EP on Island Records Australia cements her status as one of Australia’s most exciting and talented new artists. Dealing primarily with the inner turmoil of growing up, the record is filled with achingly beautiful songs that deal candidly with what it’s like trying to find your place in the world. Eliott’s astonishing soul-tinged vocals act as each song’s emotive centrepiece, with each inflection acutely capturing feelings of heartache, longing and restlessness.

Already released singles garnered praise from publications such as Clash Music, Indie Shuffle, Fashion Journal & Hilly Dilly , while 'Over & Over' was added to Triple J rotation upon release in March.

Double EP Launch: Rachel Caddy + Tuva Finserås with Venus Court & Amy Pollock (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $15 on the door. Doors 7.00 PM

Rachel Caddy and Tuva FinseråsFinserås are teaming up to celebrate the release of their debut EP's TOGETHER in a special double headline event. Joined by Amy Pollock, the night will be a showcase of Original music, all led by female Singer/Songwriter's.

Rachel Caddy hails from the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, but is gradually infiltrating the Melbourne music scene and winning fans with her warm vocals and tender, honest songwriting. Her style expands across different genres, from plaintive acoustic guitar picking reminiscent of an indie-folk style, to writhing bass and powerful drums accompanied by spaced-out psychedelic guitar parts.

Having released four Single's throughout the last year, Rachel has crowdfunded the creation of physical copies of her work in the form of an EP titled 'Missing Screws' and will be releasing it at the event.

Tuva Finserås is a Norwegian-born Melbournian, who creates a never-ending and bewildering range of music, every note composed and arranged by her, all with her slightly off-kilter, intriguingly odd Scandinavian sensibility.

Lions, wolves and unexpected days off are all a part of Tuva Finserås selftitled debut EP, produced by Benjamin McCarthy (Alex The Astronaut, Gordi, G Flip). To celebrate the release of ‘Tuva Finserås’, she will be launching it with her band as a special double-show along with Rachel Caddy’s EP debut at The Gasometer upstairs on July 10th.

Six Musicians Try To Walk Into A Bar: Harris, Tali Mahoney, Porpoise Spit & More.

Tickets $8 on the door. Doors at 5.00PM

My mumma always said that Sundays are too chill for noisy bands, so come down early to the Gasometer on Sunday 8th to enjoy the dulcet tones of stripped back local acts.

Think of it as halfway between the Oasis MTV unplugged and the Nirvana MTV unplugged - not that bad, but also not that good.

Tali Mahoney - This local troubadour will melt your heart with her bittersweet melodic confessional style. Visceral storytelling seasoned with emotional fervour.

Porpoise Spit (Acoustic) – They’re hanging up their rambunctious backyard rose rock for one night and settling down to sing you some songs whilst sipping a scotch on the rocks and smoking one last cigarette on the back porch. DNMs ‘til sunrise.

Cruel Bloke Don – You may know him from any other of the hundred Melbourne based bands he is in, but after four years of his friends asking when his debut solo show will be, they finally have their answer. The songs are at the same time funny and sombre and will have you saying, “My god, he’s tall. I wonder if he plays basketball?”

Harris – His songs are a bit too short and broody for our liking, but he’s got great hair.

See you there for a mulled wine, imperial stout or a Coca-Cola with a splash of raspberry cordial.

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.

Grace Robinson "Coward" Launch with Tali Mahoney & Bailey Judd

Tickets $7+BF/$10 on the door. Doors 1.30 PM

Grace Robinson, a young Melbourne musician, announces the release of a new single, following her debut album, 'With Fire' release from last year. After selling out the Spotted Mallard for the launch, Grace fell into music hibernation to pursue her year twelve year for 2018. Making a comeback into the scene, Grace plans to release new single “Coward” in early July, and launch the tune downstairs at the Gaso with her band as a matinee gig on July 7th. “Coward” was recorded with Roger Bergodaz in Union Street Studios, Brunswick west, with her 7 piece band constructed from Melbourne musicians she went to high school with. The song, funky with a hint of sass, embodies the old school soul that Grace comforts, but with a splash of the Melbourne indie pop scene. Her captivating combination of jazz and blues mixed with pop influences create a distinctive sound, complimented by her powerful vocals. With Influences varying between Missy Higgins, Lake Street Dive and old school Carol King, Graces songs of love, loss and longing are relatable to any passing listener Graces songs depict maturity beyond her 18 years. With the release of her first album at the age of 16, Grace has established herself as a young but powerful voice in the Melbourne music scene, with her title track “With Fire” appearing on the Triple J roots charts throughout 2017. Coward is a soulful song about taking the higher ground and realising that what people say about you, sometimes really says more about them. Joining Grace on the stage is the ever so talented Bailey Judd, a young guitarist/singer that was born with the sold soul of Robert Johnson but admits he struggles with the problems of a whiny teen. Judd will be joined by trusty friends Matt Dooley and Ben Cooke to grace the stage with his bluesy and groovy tunes. Tali Mahoney will then take the spotlight, a kick ass front liner with the catchiest and most relatable songs for any passing listener. With her electric guitar glued to her hands and her trusty band, her old school pop and unbelievable pipes are addictive. Becoming a large player in the Melbourne music field, she is not an act to miss. This gig will be loud, funky and fun, and no doubt with a lot of rootsie tunes and classic covers. If this sounds like your kind of jam, from 1pm on Saturday the 7th, downstairs at the Gaso is the place to be.

The Goon Sax with Terry & Bloody Hell

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

Fresh from shows in the UK, Europe and USA, Brisbane's minimal art-pop champs The Goon Sax preview songs from their upcoming second album We're Not Talking. Their debut Up To Anything, released in 2016 while the band were still in high school, made it into end of year lists for BBC6, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned raves from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere. The Goon Sax toured UK and Europe twice on that record, played shows with Whitney, US Girls, and Teenage Fanclub, did Laneway and Meredith festivals, graduated school, then turned their focus to album number two.

We're Not Talking shows how much can change between the ages of 17 and 19. It's a record that takes the enthusiasms of youth and twists them into darker, more sophisticated shapes, full of lines like “We don’t want distance but it seems to come to us so easily.” Relationships are now laced with hesitation, remorse, misunderstanding and ultimately compassion. We're Not Talking is released on 14 September 2018 by Chapter Music for Australia/New Zealand, Wichita Recordings for the rest of the world.
