The Meanies 'Last Shows Until Who Knows When' with Ausmuteants & Stiff Richards

Tickets $25+BF/$30 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Seminal Aussie punk band The Meanies have announced a run of National tour dates this coming June / July, with 8 shows across 4 weekends taking in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Townsville. Since forming in ’89, Link, Wally, Jaws and Ringo have kept the spirit of The Meanies alive with selected shows every year much to the delight of fans. 2017 is no exception with these freshly announced dates, and punters across the country can expect the usual high voltage Meanies show peppered with a set of favourites including Darkside Of My Mind, Scum, ’10% Weird’, and more. With a career spanning decades, The Meanies have established themselves as one of Australia's pre- eminent underground rock bands, performing with such international luminaries as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, Redd Kross, Superchunk, Fugazi and the Hard-Ons and appearing at Festivals including the Big Day Out, Livid and Push Over. The Meanies have also toured extensively through countries such as Spain, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland. With Vocalist Link Meanie preparing to relocate overseas permanently, it’s hard to say when these four band members may have the chance to share a stage again in the future. These shows may be your last chance to catch the legendary Meanies live.

Larissa Tandy Plays The Gasometer Hotel with Brooke Russell and the Mean Reds & Sam Newton (syd)

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 6.00 PM

Larissa Tandy is one of Australia’s finest emerging talents, a powerful, instinctive songwriter with an arresting voice. She joins forces with alt country all stars Brooke Russell and the Mean Reds for a run of Australian shows this Winter, landing at the Gasometer in hometown Melbourne on July 2nd. Hailing from rural Australia, Larissa came up from the underground of Melbourne’s music scene, mining her difficult life for potent stories and spinning them into songs that made their way onto radio in America, the UK, and Canada where the CBC ordained them as “songs you need to hear”.

Filtering the urgent poetry of Patti Smith and the untamed cool of Liz Phair, while fearlessly laying bare her road worn heart, Tandy is carving her own path in the world of modern Americana. Her momentum continues to gather, and in 2017 she makes the move to Music City Nashville as the recipient of The Australia Council’s prestigious Nashville Songwriter Residency.

Slow Dancer at The Gasometer with Poppongene, Real Feelings

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

“[‘Don’t Believe’ is a] soulful serenade to a detached lover, it blends laid-back drums, soft guitar and fuzzy, plucky synthesizers to make a smooth '70s sound.” - NPR

“Silky smooth...spindly and soulful.” - Stereogum

“Okely’s soulful, Stax-inflected vocals and stinging guitar work stand out in any crowd.” - Billboard

“An album that seeps into your consciousness...In a Mood creates a blanket of sound, each layer blending smoothly, a sonic gradient of guitar, organ, strings, bass, and vocals.” - Noisey

“‘It Goes On’ sounds completely effortless, and it’s the ease with which Slow Dancer flits between country-influenced guitar licks to something closer to indie-rock that makes him such a fascinating prospect.” - DIY

Melbourne, Australia’s Slow Dancer—the moniker of singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Simon Okely—will release his stunning new album In A Mood on June 9th via Pieater/ATO Records, and today he shares a simply moving music video for its current single 'It Goes On'. After appearing alongside Margaret Glaspy and Cameron Avery on their recent Australian tours as well as playing select US and UK dates which included SXSW, Slow Dancer will bring his new record to life on July 6 in Melbourne, July 7 in Brisbane and July 14 in Sydney.

The subtle yet striking music video for ‘It Goes On’, which received its premiere on Billboard, has deep meaning for Okely, who explains:

“I wrote the treatment for the ‘It Goes On video’ with my ex lover of 14 years. We wanted to explore what the things we choose say say about us. I have a theory about writing love songs; they are a curse; they inadvertently herald the end of the very relationship they here intended to praise. In this instance, I was painfully correct.”

Simon Okely is lost in time. Or at least, his songs as Slow Dancer sound that way: warm, near-whispered indie-rock love letters to the 60s and 70s rhythm and blues records his parents would play on family car rides down Australia’s winding west coast, heavy on nostalgia and even heavier on imagination. His 2014 debut Surrender was a melt-your-heart, Fleetwood Mac-with-Neil Young licks “pop postcard” from another time, another place. Now returning in 2017 with In A Mood, Okely is aiming even higher, featuring a “more expansive, more ambitious” sound that’s “less about the stories we tell ourselves when in love and more about the moods that can come creeping over a relationship” at any time. It’s no wonder his music is already striking a chord with fans of Mac DeMarco, Tobias Jesso Jr, Connan Mockasin and more, with his latest single accumulating over a quarter of a million Spotify streams in just a few weeks.

After moving to Melbourne in 2013, Okely began writing as Slow Dancer in 2014, naming the project after a lyric from a song on Surrender that was “essentially an instruction manual for slow dancing with someone who is experiencing apathy.” Key to the Slow Dancer sound is the environment Okely writes and records in: alone, entirely at night, in a bedroom that “somehow crams in a drum kit, a piano, some guitars, and a bed,” he laughs. “This has always been my journal, my love letter to the music I love. My concentration will always be on making the music that pleases me, and if it pleases other people too, that’s also great. It’s been a wonderful ride so far.”

Simon Okely is lost in time. You should get lost in time with him.

Small World Experience with Thigh Master & Special Guests

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

Small World Experience return to Melbourne to launch their first full length offering since 1998. After a long hibernation, SWE are once again in an active phase- playing a dozen or more shows in Melbourne and Brisbane in 2014/15, and last November an Australian tour including Hobart and Adelaide to celebrate the re-issuing of their first two albums: Shelf-Life (Siltbreeze) & Too Far Gone To Sell It (LCMR).

This year Small World Experience finally make good with Soft Knocks, the long awaited follow-up to 1998's Side Projects album (Chapter Music). Soft Knocks is a wonderfully pensive collection of the kind of stick-in-your-head tunes SWE fans would be hoping for, and doesn't shy away from hinting at the years having gone by. The band have continued their DIY approach to recording for Soft Knocks though this time there's a lush touch to the lo-fi thanks to producer John Lee (Lost Animal, Free Time, Totally Mild).

On the 14th of June 2017, just after midnight reports were received that the Grenfell Tower was on fire. The fire was to burn for 24 hours with casualties estimated to be as high as 79 at the time of writing.

Whilst conjecture remains about who exactly is how responsible, it’s safe to say that a policy of putting the lives of those living in precarious circumstances into even greater precariousness for the sake of ‘austerity’ will be the ultimate culprit.

Budgets to housing have been slashed in the UK, this has led to shoddy materials being utilised and under maintenance (The Grenfell Action Group has complaints dating back to 2013 listed on their website). As well as housing, other services that are meant to help these communities are victims of the same.

Over 6 years from April 2010 it was estimated that the budget for youth services had been cut by £387 Million. Youth Centres are not just integral for the young people that utilise them, but also the establishment of a richer and more vibrant culture - particularly in music. The Beatles performed several times at the beginning of their career at the Knotty Ash Youth Centre over 54 years ago and more recently the biggest names of Grime, from Dizzee to Skepta put a lot of their success down to the existence of these places of refuge, respite and creativity for the kids.

For this reason all proceeds will be given to the Harrow Youth Club which provides studio space, mentoring in life and music, amongst other activities to young people in the area. It’s a 5 minute walk from the Grenfell Tower and the club were fully operational helping displaced people about 2 hours after first reports to emergency services. They valiantly continue to do so.

"Now I could let these dream killers kill my self-esteem, or use my arrogance as the steam to power my dreams." – Kanye Omari West, 'Last Call'

I summoned the power of Kanye and wrote 'No Way! Okay, Fine.' a pop culture memoir. It's out in July through Hachette Australia, and you're invited to help me celebrate!

Bring your friends, more-than-friends and enemies to the Gasometer upstairs to have a drink, buy a book and hear from some of my favourite performers.

There'll be performances by the tenderest choir in town, CRYING ON THE EASTERN FREEWAY, and the cheekiest li'l punks, SUSS CUNTS, as well as a DJ set by ultimate heartbreaker, JAPANESE WALLPAPER.

I already bought a fancy dress and a purse too small to fit my phone in. It's gonna be great!

Just for kicks, here are some cute things a few cute people have said about the book:

"Brodie is whip smart; merging pop-culture references with vulnerable, personal experiences to create a collection that reads like a hilarious catch-up call with an old friend. What a pleasure to hear from this fresh, extremely relevant point of view." Abbi Jacobson, CO-CREATOR / WRITER / STAR of BROAD CITY

"I wish Brodie was the voice of my inner monologue; narrating me through life with her fierce intelligence and never-ending pop culture references. Instead, I'll just settle for this extremely relatable, unashamedly funny, powerful and beautifully vulnerable book No Way! Okay, Fine." Courtney Barnett, ARIA award winning and Grammy nominated songwriter and musician.

'Brodie Lancaster is a thoughtful and patient writer, and this book is a generous, deep dive into her psyche. Brodie's thoughts about her body, her friends and lovers, her choices and fears are all presented with the same staccato blast of pop culture touchstones, and if you love boy bands/the internet/reality television/the Gilmore Girls/literally every other thing that is good in the world, you will adore this book.' Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of THE VACATIONERS and MODERN LOVERS.

The CB3 "Exposed" EP Launch w/ RINI, DJ Joey Lightbulb (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors at 7.30 PM

For an artist with such a diverse musical background, Cristian Barbieri has found a perfect balance on his debut solo release, Exposed. Currently operating as lead guitarist for Melbourne act Billy Davis & The Good Lords, Barbieri's band (THE CB3) is part of the new Bad Opera movement, which will see collaboration and support between a number of local acts (including Billy Davis).

'Exposed' showcases Barbieri's significant range to perfection, from the subtle nuances of jazz, the grooves of R&B, and melodic hooks that clearly stem from the world of pop music. For fans of modern heavyweights like The Roots and Vulfpeck, THE CB3 also shows regard to musical pioneers like The Meters and Parliament. Make sure you give this exciting new artist a long look, you'll be thankful you did.

"The CB3 are an instrumental R&B/hip hop trio that keeps us on our toes. So tight, yet so relaxed, with melody lines that catch us off-guard, before flinging us head-first into a beatific, happy daze of funk-flavoured hooks and delicious bass lines." - The Music

After a year of writing and concentrating on their live show the boys from Brunswick based five piece Picket Palace have finally recorded some music. In their first headline show of the year they will be launching their debut single ‘Pull your head in’. The song captures the essence of a Picket Palace gig; catchy riffs, long jams and an overwhelming feeling that everything could all descend into chaos at any moment. Joining them for the single launch will be the new-to-town Foggy Notion: a bluesy, thoughtful four piece with a good attitude and great facial hair and the ever-energetic Swamp: jangle influenced surf rockers with what can only be described as ‘more than a little bit of sixties vibe’. 13th of July//$5 Entry

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

A chance encounter with 3RRRFM on a school bus in the 80s started an ongoing love affair with the groundbreaking community radio station that has made Fee B-Squared one of the most loved and respected broadcasters in Melbourne. Almost 14 years as co-host and music producer on 3RRR’s “Breakfasters”, she has been in conversation with Kim Gordon and Neil Finn, she’s DJ’d for Spike Jonze, been a regular DJ and MC at Meredith Music Festival, she’s a member of the RocKwiz brains trust, a live music devotee and demon parallel parker. Fee currently produces and presents “Maps” on 3RRRFM Mondays 4-7pm

For her “Class of 2018”, Fee brings together 3 of her favourite acts who are no strangers to listeners of her radio show but perhaps to those who haven’t had the good fortune of catching Fee on the air of late.

In a bill shrouded with mystery that will be fully revealed in late May, Hysterical Records first ever signing, Shrimp Witch will play main support. The fabulous two-piece, Georgi Goonsack and Kim Prawn, AKA Shrimpwitch, create ferociously raw and high-energy rock and roll performances exploring the hardness and softness of the Shrimpwitch shell with uproarious banter, rock outfits and humour. Shrimpwitch’s new EP Eggs Eggs Eggs is an unrelenting force, echoing early 80s new-wave and garage punk.

Their debut album “Victim of Circumstance” produced by Ivan Khatchoyan from Choi Productions/Cookin’ on 3 Burners is set to be released at the Gasometer on the 15th of July.

Hi, Skyscraper Stan here. I’ve been announcing a lot of regional dates lately and some of you beautiful people have taken the time to admonish me for my failure to include any Melbourne gigs. I apologise for my neglect. Melbourne, you mean the world to me and I hate to think I made you feel unattractive. Here’s my olive branch; four rambling Tuesday nights in July at the Gasometer Upstairs. Old songs, new songs, songs I haven’t written yet, maybe some songs I didn’t write at all.

Tom Milek 'The Idea Of Home' Launch with Special Guests

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

It would be easy to dismiss Tom Milek’s music as another ‘guy with a guitar’, but he is so much more than that. We have to do better this time and take care to understand what is going on inside this artist's head. This is not a person motivated by advancing his reputation through infiltrating scenes, nor is he someone who pays any attention to types of aesthetics that help propel creatives through their career. This is someone who is completely dedicated to crafting something that, when listened to by the right person, will stop them in their tracks.

To celebrate the release of Tom's debut album 'The Idea of Home', he'll be hitting the stage along with a complete band at Melbourne's favourite place to hear new live music, The Gasometer. Joined by dream-pop, ol' mates Sleep Decade who blend distorted folk and dense synth drones into delicately executed, deeply atmospheric songs. With the lovely Al Parkison who reaches out, pulling directly at your heart-strings with her soulful voice, playful ukulele, and wonderfully honest songs of love and loss.

Milek and his band will play the album through in it's entirety, in what's sure to be a very memorable night, for those who find themselves in the welcoming embrace of the hotel at the corner of Smith and Alexandra.

It will be a completely Melbourne affair and no doubt we will all cancel out each other’s fame in search of the perfect boots/jacket combo. - Low Talk is an art-pop project led by conceptual artists Thomas Hyland and Charlotte Ivey. On a bed of surrealist lyrics, Hyland's visceral vocals are sugared by Ivey's smokey tones and rich harmonies. Textural instrumentation led by whacked out violin, a blend of real and synthetic driving rhythms, electric guitar, bass, and anonymous noises of distortion and unease.

Wet Lips is a record of three people growing from thrashing out garage songs for the sake of it to becoming an archetype of contemporary punk. It’s also a record of the band’s first life: with Girl Crazy’s Georgia Maggie taking over on the drums, Wet Lips is as much a commemoration of Hillyer’s five years with the band as a promise of what comes next. That’s more ferocious shows, more biting critique, more songs that imagine rock as a means of finding power in a powerless society. Come see them launch it into the world with friends Terrible Truths, Pillow Pro, Crystal Myth and DJ Emoceans.

Dan’s songwriting involves an eclectic mix of folk, indie, pop and rock with the key objective to create a strong emotional connection to the listener. His unique vocal tone an ode to the CD’s played in his fathers ’91 Pajero, with early Coldplay, Hunters & Collectors and Men at Work the most popular.

Dan’s live show is a ball of energy and sing-alongs.

Kill Devil Hills with Timothy Nielson & Leah Senior

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

The Kill Devil Hills formed in 2003 as a quiet acoustic project, but that was a dumb idea and didn't last very long, quickly swelling ranks like a looming tide, until 14 years later it has settled down somewhat as 6-piece purveyor of tuneful cacophony, beautiful bastard noise, ugly but honest ballads, and gene-spliced sonic travesties....in other words, a rock band with a heart of mud and coal. Four albums, a few 7"s, a live record, several band members and a shitload of kilometres and late late nights later....Like the fabled Hydra, we are difficult, nay, impossible, to slay. The band has toured Australia, Canada, the US and most parts of Western Europe...and will continue to do so until all our hair and teeth fall out and we can only croak like toads and make music by hitting brightly coloured things with our cheap imported walking sticks. An entrancing, visceral, emotive, sensual and usually fucking loud live act, this is one of those special Australian-mutant bands that only remote continents can cough up, a species confined to islands, fever-dreams, and occasionally to strut the stage a while. Since departing band member Agent Steven Joines recently went into the witness protection programme in a remote New Zealand dictatorship, we have undertaken the various initiation rituals required to announce that Luke Dux is officially our new guitarist, welcome, and we're sorry... This run of winter shows will be the first with the new lineup, before the band commences work on a new album, and European shows later in the year.

A landscape of soulful undertones tightly packed with chunky beats, fused with ambient vocals and dub delays; Reuben’s prospects for the future are vast with a colossal eye for collaborating amongst Australia’s top touring acts and spreading to large-scale festivals, already crossing of the list, festivals such as Burning Man, Shambhala, Singapore Grand Prix, Queenscliff Festival.

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

Teeth & Tongue is the music project of songwriter and instrumentalist Jess Cornelius. Over the course of four critically-acclaimed albums, Teeth & Tongue has gradually morphed from a solo project into a more collaborative ‘band-like’ affair, with long-time collaborators Marc Regueiro-McKelvie, Damian Sullivan and James Harvey. Their 2016 album ‘Give Up On Your Health’ was named 3RRR Album of the Week and Double J Feature Album, and was nominated for a J Award and The Australian Music Prize.

Now, Jess Cornelius is heading to the USA to focus on a new ‘actually solo’ project under her own name, with material that is more stripped back, personal and lyrically direct. To say goodbye (for a while), Teeth & Tongue are throwing a farewell ‘Greatest Hurts’ party at the Gasometer on August 4th. They’ll be playing songs from all four Teeth &Tongue albums: Monobasic, Tambourine, Grids and Give Up On Your Health.

Joining them for the good times are Loose Tooth and Gregor, plus Venetian Blinds DJs (Phoebe Taylor and Liam Linney).

 Gleaned from sessions at an isolated farm far north of Sydney where the band had free reign to work night and day, YEEVS second EP 'Bellow Of A Cheer' is lush and forgiving. Marking a mysterious point somewhere between anguish and joy, the record explores these two emotional states in equal measure, implying that the two aren't that far removed.

Dan Brodie Album Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 5.00 PM

A formidable live performer, Brodie managed to bash his guitar like a country singer attacks the bottle..with a million broken strings tonight just to complete the tragedy...his vocal is the aural equivalent of watching a last ditch drunk fighting for his life in a back country bar - Jake Stone

Dan Brodie is an acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter.

Since 1999, Brodie has captured audiences around the world, releasing a succession of albums (seven in total) which have been nominated for numerous awards.

His musical talents have taken him to the U.S., U.K., France, Spain and New Zealand playing such iconic venues as CBGB in New York, The Continental in Austin, The Exit/In in Nashville and The Olympia in Paris.

In 2017 Dan Brodie returns to present LOST NOT FOUND, a collection of other people’s songs, reinterpreted.

“I didn’t want to make an Album of straight up copies of the originals, I felt like that has been done to death, instead I looked for some of my favourite artists whose lyrics resonated with me, and created my own musical palette on which to present them.”

Brodie recorded the Album in his home studio in Melbourne, playing the majority of instruments including guitar, bass, synthesiser and percussion, working relentlessly to flesh out the blood and guts of the original song.

For Brodie, choosing the songs all came down to the story telling and emotional power of the lyrics,

“It all came down to the lyrics, which surprised me, as I always assumed that every so called great song could be reinterpreted, but for me that was not the case. Some songs are of their time, but to reach across time they also need a great lyric as a foundation in which to lay down your own interpretation and story ”

The results are a spectacularly dark and brooding album sparkling with both familiarity and mystery.

From the visceral Bob Dylan opener, “Standing in the doorway” to a meditative take on Iggy Pop’s “The Passenger”, through to Paul Simon’s “You can call me Al” minus the horns and upbeat cheeriness to the melancholy reworkings of Motorhead’s “Damage Case” and to the terrifying cautionary tale, “Swine” an underground grunge punk classic penned by Aussie performer, Stu Spasm, the audience is transported into the dark underbelly of Brodie’s haunting musical arrangements and presentation, leaving plenty of room for the listener to draw their own conclusions from the songs.

Brodie also had time to include three originals compositions, his own songs holding their own and standing proudly alongside the other more famous and infamous, especially in the beautiful piano ballad, “Words of a drunken man” and in the sweet waltz “I aint got nothing (if I ain’t got you)”, the delicious pedal steel tones provided by longtime collaborator and brother, Chris Brodie.

LOST NOT FOUND represents a high water mark for Brodie, coming after his 2013 diagnosis and successful treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma, a Retrospective album in 2015 and two lengthy tours of Europe both solo and with his band The Grieving Widows and finds our hero lacking none of his intensity and commitment to making music that not only survives but endures.

Gentlemane Album Launch w/ Boy Forever & Screebus

Tickets $2

Long after most assumed the joke had run it’s course, low brow ironic indie outfit, ‘Gentlemane’, are back with a new album, Bird Song.

Bird Song combines consciously antagonistic production, with tedious lyricism and painfully frustrating instrumentation, to form one of the most difficult listens of the year.

The first single, Chess, was poorly received by critics and friends alike and is an accurate microcosm of the album as a whole. The high points of the album, including the bird calls on the title track, are quickly usurped by the crippling low points, such as the flanger on faux Irish jig, Dublin.

Gentlemane will launch Bird Song upstairs at the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood on Thursday the 22nd of June with help from Boy Forever and lil Screeby $2 entry

The CB3 Launch with Joey Lightbulb (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

For an artist with such a diverse musical background, Cristian Barbieri has found a perfect balance on his debut solo release, Exposed. Currently operating as lead guitarist for Melbourne act Billy Davis & The Good Lords, Barbieri's band (THE CB3) is part of the new Bad Opera movement, which will see collaboration and support between a number of local acts (including Billy Davis).

'Exposed' showcases Barbieri's significant range to perfection, from the subtle nuances of jazz, the grooves of R&B, and melodic hooks that clearly stem from the world of pop music. For fans of modern heavyweights like The Roots and Vulfpeck, THE CB3 also shows regard to musical pioneers like The Meters and Parliament. Make sure you give this exciting new artist a long look, you'll be thankful you did.

"The CB3 are an instrumental R&B/hip hop trio that keeps us on our toes. So tight, yet so relaxed, with melody lines that catch us off-guard, before flinging us head-first into a beatific, happy daze of funk-flavoured hooks and delicious bass lines." - The Music

Homelessness is an immensely complex issue that affects more than just those living on the streets.


COMPLEXITY

SOUND:

Colette Millu + P’jenne Mystery Machine Three Mile Tony 5 + Liluzu Dave Lazy + Danger Can

Entry is $10 before 5pm and $15 onwards

The amount of people experiencing homelessness in Melbourne is rapidly reaching crisis point. Scarce employment opportunities combined with an unaffordable housing market are just some of the factors that have contributed to the increasing epidemic.

The objective of this event is to educate and explore the complex realities of this escalating issue, whilst shedding light on some practical solutions that are in-effect and successfully working to combat the crisis at hand.

As a community we possess much stigma and general ignorance in relation to this deeply seeded issue. Through this event and its lead up, we aim to generate both progressive discussion and provide an authentic insight into the lives of those we often see, but rarely hear.

We believe: Before you change something, you must understand it, first.

June 18th at the Gasometer, this event will be held, in proud support of those experiencing homelessness.

Funds from the event well are used to support the following organizations and initiatives …


Homie are a not for profit based in Brunswick st, Fitzroy. They provide pathways out of homelessness through the running of their store that sells brand-new clothing, with all profits returning to the Community. Furthering their work to the community, Homie have developed a retail-training program that allows for at risk youth to gain valuable employment experience through working at their store. The trainees are then guaranteed a job at Cotton On once they complete the program. The majority of funds raised will go towards the program and it’s endeavors to expand and offer long-term results.

Throughout the lead up to the event, filmmaker Alex Siddons (‘The Saints of St Kilda’, ‘The High School Lawyer’) will be releasing a series of short-films that explore the inspiring work of Homie and the realities of those currently experiencing homelessness.

Through the vehicle of story telling, we aim to break the often-trivialized stigmas of homelessness and humanize the everyday struggles of those undergoing such adverse circumstance.

Special thanks to all of the lovely and generous people who have donated their time, effort and resources to this project. It really couldn’t have happened without such a collaborative effort. A particular mention to all of the artists playing and Sam ‘Sprinkles’ Donaldson for the amazing artwork.

Dear beautiful friends, I'm very excited to be playing my first set with a live band upstairs at The Gaso.

This gig is on Thurs 15th June and it will introduce the lovely muso legends who are helping me fill out these songs (Alex O'Gorman & Lachlan O'Kane, they're sounding Very O'Good).

My music is sitting somewhere between Bruce Springsteen and Wednesday Addams, with lots of guts and feelings poured into stories of life, love and takeaway food.

Also joining us on the night are two very special support acts, Sam Lawrence and Al Parkinson, so PLEASE come for the BEGINNING and get cosy while these precious songwriters knock our sox off.

This'll be the biggest headline I've played under my own name and I'm so excited and very grateful to all the lovely and supportive people who have been egging me on. So let's try cram a bunch of bodies in a small bandroom and have a good time.

Buy your tix and prepare for a strange hybrid of crying, swaying, laughing, dancing and lots of bandroom cuddles.

On Sunday June 11th, I OH YOU excitedly return to Melbourne with a jam packed lineup featuring live sets from:

Slum Sociable:

Melbourne’s Slum Sociable are Edward Quinn and Miller Upchurch, formed at university after being introduced by a mutual friend.

The duo released their debut EP TQ in 2015 and its charm saw Slum Sociable cut through internationally, gracing the Top 5 of the Hype Machine charts, appearing on a host of Spotify playlists and receiving love from global radio station Beats 1. It also saw the duo release a single via tastemaker label Kitsune and tour globally: playing a string of headline dates in the UK and US on top of sold‐out shows back home.

The duos latest single 'Name Call' adds to Slum Sociables already impressive repertoire. Steeped in groove, and merging soul with hip‐hop and electronica, 'Name Call' is the first cut from the subversive Melbourne duos awaited debut album.
