Exhibitionist 'Let Go Of Love' Launch with Aphir & Sandy Hsu (UPSTAIRS)

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

Let Go of Love, the debut EP from multi-instrumentalist Exhibitionist (aka Kirsty Tickle), is nothing short of an exceptional, elegant pop record. Written during and after the breakdown of a long-term relationship, the EP explores heartache and unease through honest lyricism, intricate instrumentation and Tickle’s delicate, honeyed vocals. But the EP certainly isn’t your standard break-up record, with Tickle also thoughtfully diving into the murky, confusing landscape of navigating selfhood during a moment of change. The EP’s latest single, “Sway” is a brooding, silky dance number. Co-written with Lucianblomkamp, the song explores the tension between wanting to be vulnerable with someone while also guarding yourself against heartbreak. “Sway is about feeling tangled up in someone, and wanting to fold into them completely, while futilely trying to guard your heart in the process” she says, “I wrote it in Melbourne over two days about a man I adore who has this beautiful, bright personality that sometimes makes my own flaws feel very exposed. It's a personal reminder to be open to love, and to stop pushing against it even when things feel a bit unsteady".

The Royal Parks with Emily Ulman & Jackson McLaren (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

The Royal Parks are named after a beautiful park in Melbourne's (Naarm) north, the land of which had long been a camping ground for ceremony for the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land where we live and make music, and that sovereignty has never been ceded.

The Royal Parks are proud to release the third single of their debut album, produced by Noah Georgeson (Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart, Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes), HUSKY).

Conjure (Part Two) is a dreamy and beautifully moving reflection on friendship and loss; it powerfully captures the complexity of feelings when recalling treasured memories, finishing with a tribute an Australian song-writing classic.

They will be playing a full band show to celebrate the release on the 28th of June at the Gaso upstairs with support from Emily Ulman and Jackson McLaren. It will be the last show for the band before Amy and Tea become parents for the first time.

The Hot Springs EP Launch with Eaglemont, Jackson Phelan

TICKETS $10 BF inc/$10 ON THE DOOR. DOORS 7.30 PM

Released through kitchen-table label Hangout Records, The Hot Springs have mixed elements of romantic poetry, country and grunge into their debut EP. Inspired by the likes of gothic-country flagships Neko Case and Grant Lee-Buffalo as well as elements of classic and Aussie rock, the EP showcases the band’s balance of lead sax (Renn Picard) and guitar (Adam Heath) with the lyrical storytelling of Knight, whose vocals have earned comparisons to Patti Smith and Chris Isaac.

With support from friends Gena Rose Bruce (& Band), and Jackson Phelan (RAThammock) The Hot Springs will launch their EP at The Gasometer Hotel on Thursday 28th of June.

TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON!

Gena Rose Bruce is a lover of sad eyed, bluesy pop with a touch of twang. She writes honest songs with a bit of reverb creating that 90’s dream, West Coast sound.

Taking influence from a sea of lo fi bedroom producers, 90’s rock, jazz, country and folk, Jackson Phelan’s idiosyncratic story telling is unapologetically emotive, funny and thought provoking.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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.

Join Lake Minnetonka, Mayfield and Au Dré, along with guest vocalists Amber Ferraro (Honey), Henry Manetta and more to be announced, as they throw a funk and soul party to make you forget your winter blues!

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.

I'm going on tour, a tour of song and dance, and mindful meditation. It’s all in the name of my upcoming debut album Sunrise Chaser. These shows will be your chance to experience the album before its glorious... playlisting on streaming services. 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.

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.”

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.

Gabriella Cohen 'Album Launch' with Broads & Bonnie Love

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

Australia’s sweetheart, Gabriella Cohen, returns with her sophomore album, Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love. The album’s opener and first single ‘Baby’ was born in the graveyard of unrequited love, yet morphs into a remarkably catchy, feel good number.

On Pink Is The Colour, Cohen pays homage to her musical influences by inviting the listener on a journey: from the grooves of bossa nova, to the lilting sentimentality of strings, to kicking it back on the sprawling highways of rock ‘n’ roll. Honest heartache is woven into glory throughout the record, and during eleven tracks a candid, almost ethereal self-portrait of its songwriter emerges. For Gabriella Cohen, it’s an epitaph of electric wonder, and a definitive fact: Pink is the Colour of Unconditional Love.

Cohen moved to a farm in countryside Victoria, Australia in summer of 2017 to record and self-produce the album with engineer and partner-in-crime, Kate “Babyshakes” Dillon. There, amidst flocks of screeching white cockatoos and herds of Black Angus cows, they etched the beginning of Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love. The record was almost complete when the band was invited to join Foxygen’s US tour, compelling the girls to finish the album on the road. Armed with a microphone and an interface, Dillon and Cohen captured the final touches of the album on a boat in England, and the coast of Portugal; in the mountains of Southern Italy, cafes of Mexico, and finally in Venice Beach, Los Angeles.

Throughout the new album Cohen (flanked by a choir of imaginary dolls that exist in her head) creates complex and sugary backing vocals. These signature vocal arrangements – contoured with classic harmonies and nostalgic melodies – form songs remarkable in their originality.

THE GOODS 'MAKE YOUR MOVE' LAUNCH WITH GC O'CONNOR & COLLETTE (UPSTAIRS)

TICKETS $15 BF.inc/$20 on the door. Dors 8.00 PM

One of Australia's most dynamic acts, The Goods, return to the stage, unveiling a brand new live show to mark the release of their hotly anticipated EP Make Your Move.

Out April 13 via Personal Best Records & Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Recordings, Make Your Move documents the band's exploration into faster tempos and broken rhythms, and was created in a much more collaborative spirit than their previous work. With Black Tree now an official member, the trio has tapped back into their roots as improvising musicians, with experimentations and ideas developed during their live shows making their way back into the studio and fine-tuned into the tracks on this new EP.

Consisting of founding members Badmandela and Rosario, along with the more recent addition of vocalist Black Tree, The Goods first burst onto the scene in 2016 with the release of their self-titled double EP rooted in a steady stream of hip-hop, space funk, low slung house and club soul, earning them recognition through outlets such as Complex, MTV, VICE and Indie Shuffle,

In what’s been a stellar year for The Goods, the talented trio released their Spotify hero “Make Your Move”, their more recent radio-champion “Glow”, and entered into a new signing with Niche Productions. Word has also spread internationally, leading to a signing to New York-based label Bastard Jazz, home to artists such as Illa J and Potatohead People. With continued support from outlets including Complex, RUSSH, Pilerats, triple j, community radio and beyond, it’s no wonder The Goods have become vital members of Sydney's rising soul/electronic scene in just a few short years.

Notorious for their smashing live sets, The Goods have shared stages with the likes of Oddisee, Onra, Touch Sensitive and most recently Mr. Carmack, in addition to standout performances at Vivid, Newtown Festival & Secret Garden Festival.

Don’t miss your spot on the dance floor as The Goods bring Make Your Move to Sydney & Melbourne this June.

The winter yule approaches and three of the Universe's most brazen queer acts guide you through the dreaded damp towards the unutterable sublime. Eat. Drink. Let love in your hearts. A musical evening of divine zeal awaits.

Following the recent success of the drug testing trials at 'Groovin the Moo' festival in ACT we have joined up with the Victorian Socialists who are backing the campaign here in VIC and The Gasometer Hotel who have offered us this great space to host the event!

  • line-up TBA -

Harm minimisation simply makes sense. It saves lives and is a much more sensible and effective approach to dealing with drug issues than using aggressive methods such as sniffer dogs.

Drug use/abuse is a serious issue in our day and age, so lets not pretend we can get rid of it through out-dated scare tactics.

OKENYO with Price J (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Last year, OKENYO invited you into a ‘WOMAN’S WORLD’, introducing herself as an artist who is strong in her ideals, brave in her delivery and vulnerable in her revelations. Today, she announces her debut EP ‘THE WAVE’, where she delves even deeper into the human condition.

‘THE WAVE’ is about learning from our mistakes, celebrating our imperfections and recognising our eternal journey of change.

OKENYO describes the work further, “I am always pushing myself into places of vulnerability in my work in order to discover who I am in this world and how I can continue to navigate it. I’m scared, I’m strong, I’m funny, I’m weak, I’m searching, I’m magic on certain days of the week.

The Wave is an expression of a time that through music, can outstay time”

OKENYO offers the newest taste of the EP with ’20 / 20’, a raw and telling manifesto. In the video, the artist/actress digs deep into her own experiences, laying her flaws bare; her vulnerabilities are inescapable while the viewer witnesses a powerful and relatable performance of letting someone go. We watch on as OKENYO rides the wave deep, the music her saving grace.

Producing and writing the EP with Lionel Towers, the work is unique in its textures and unveils an artist of musical integrity and technical finesse. Excited to bring this work to life, OKENYO will celebrate the release of the EP on her first National Headline Tour.

MEZKO 'COME & GO' Launch with Blyolk & James Seedy (UPSTAIRS)

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

Sydney multi-instrumentalists MEZKO today unveil their new track and video 'Come & Go' and announce dates for a national single tour this June. The track is the first arrival from the enigmatic duo since their 2017 debut with the Polychronic EP, and is out now on Inertia Music.

MEZKO are Kat Harley and Laura Bailey. Forged by an insatiable musical connection that is the foundation of MEZKO'S unique sound; a collision of futurist pop and electronica that casts one eye backwards at post-punk and krautrock. Their melange of motorik beats, harmonic riffs and hypnotic vocals are anchored by taut, melodic bass lines and expansive synths. This explosion of sounds is combined with thoughtful songwriting and technical prowess, resulting in a mesmerising experience - a space controlled by them and for them, yet enveloping anyone in its path.

A regular fixture across local radio stations around the country for their previous singles 'Steady On,' 'Trust' and 'Everyone' , MEZKO have grown a diverse, energetic fan base through memorable live shows alongside King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Emma Louise, Mosquito Coast, Running Touch, Miami Horror, World Champion and Gold Class. They’ve also played Volumes, Blurst of Times, Purple Sneakers x Vivid, Gaytimes, Secret Garden, Bad Friday, and Perth’s Disconnect Festival. Ahead of their national tour dates, which will see MEZKO actualise 'Come & Go' and a slew of other new material live, the duo are traversing the country this April in support of Crooked Colours.
