Stop & Search: Drugs, Cops, Music Festivals and You! (UPSTAIRS)

FREE ENTRY. Doors 6.30 PM

If the Victorian Police Minister Lisa Neville gets her way, then music festivals are about to drastically change for the worse.

She wants to extend police powers to make our festivals less safe, less common, and less fun.

Unharm!'s Nevena Spirovska will be hosting an evening upstairs at The Gaso to address the Police Minister’s proposal and teach you about your rights and responsibilities in the context of police searches.

Joining us on the night will be RMIT Legal Studies lecturer Dr Peta Malins; she’ll be speaking about her work around drug policy and police accountability.

As well as Nicholas Ward, who wrote a paper discussing the impact of Operation Safenight on the community.

This event is free but spots are limited (upstairs at The Gaso).

Loose Change Presents: Liptember

Liptember is a campaign dedicated to educating the community on women's mental health whilst raising funds towards specific women's mental health research and support programs. Women are urged to purchase a Liptember lipstick from participating retailers and register online, gaining sponsorship for wearing the lipstick throughout the month of September. The organisation gives all profits they make throughout the campaign to the following organisations, Centre of Women’s Mental Health, Lifeline, Batyr, RUOK?, The Jean Hailes Foundation and The Pretty Foundation.

Door entry will be $15 all night and we will have tins going around so you can donate your loose change ;). All profits from the Loose Change Charity event will go to Liptember.

To support this amazing cause, on the night we will be encouraging (forcing) everyone to wear Liptember lipsticks upon arrival, or of course you can prepare before you walk in. We aim to break down stigmas surrounding mental health and what better a way to do this than to encourage people to doll up.

Liptember CEO, Luke Morris will be a very special guest coming to say a few words about the organisation.

Grand Final Day At The Gas!

FREE ENTRY. Doors 12.00 PM.

Grand Final - What does it mean to you?

For some, it’s the hanger you took in the driveway at Half Time in ’02. The fact you ate shit in the moments following meant very little, because you got some SERIOUS air time.

For others, it’s the burnt pies, because everyone’s huddled round the telly, forgetting about the tasty packages left in the oven. Or maybe it’s that one mate who hits the beers far too early, and is left offering about as much as Leon Davis on the big day.

How about this year, we try something different? Banish these pre-conceived ideas of what the Granny is supposed to mean to you, and get your asses down to The Gaso.

We’re well prepared, I’ll tell you that much.

But where can you watch the game? We have more screens than Sydney has flags. Actually.

But you want it on the big screen! We’re hooking up the projector in the bandroom, free of charge!

Game a stinker? We’ve got Tijuana cartel in the bandroom post-game. You know it’ll be raucous.

Struggling to find a reason to care? We’ve got BUMP DJs pumping a Front Bar set stocked with more hits than The Footy Show has washed up, coked up ex-bit-part players. Ooft. That was a mouthful.

We don’t stop there. Oh no. We go again. DJ JOEY LIGHTBULB will be present, and he ain’t hawking around.

KITCHEN DISCO with special guests DJ L.O.G. And Yeh Na Sick are upstairs too. I was going to suggest that this would be a ‘skins v tops’ battle, but that’d be misleading. There will be minimal tops on display here. This is DEFINITION tops off vibe.

But what if I get thirsty? We’ve got $5 Melb Tinnies and $7 schooners. You won’t be left unquenched.

Starting to get a little peckish? In celebration of the Stewie Dew’s and Dean Rioli’s of footy, we’ve got you sorted for the traditional footy meal! Not to mention FREE meat pies at half team, as well as a Vego option.

So why again, were you planning on going to that same mates place for Grand Final Day? Was it for the burnt pies? Or the annoying prick he insists on inviting every year? No?

Well why not avoid all that codswallop and join us at The Gaso.

“We were just sitting on Carey’s roof top on the Gold Coast when Anunnaki aliens came and started jamming these beats with us” Paul George, The bands Guitarist and Vocalist on how the song came to fruition.

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

After releasing their second album Perfect Body this year through Flying Nun Records, Mermaidens are heading across the ditch for a string of Australian tour dates this September. Beginning in Sydney on September 23rd and finishing up in Melbourne on October 1st, this tour will be the first opportunity for Australian audiences to catch the dynamic trio live. The Wellington based three piece kick off their Australian tour at an all-time high following the August release of Perfect Body, which has been receiving rave reviews from around the globe.

Mermaidens are Gussie Larkin (guitar, vocals), Lily West (bass, vocals) and Abe Hollingsworth (drums). The trio burst onto the scene with their widely acclaimed debut EP O in 2014 and went on to release their debut album Undergrowth in 2016. As a result, they were offered dozens of shows and international support slots, which led to them being picked up by Flying Nun Records.The Wellington trio offer a mesmerising dip into the realms of post-punk and psych, defined by intricate songwriting, boldly raw – yet increasingly refined – studio production, and a hypnotic live synergy that leaves audiences enchanted.

Don’t miss this band in the heat of their new record, Perfect Body, on tour around Australia this September -they’re set to make a similar impact on the global music scene as they have at home in New Zealand.

Avian soundscaper Flamingo Jones has returned from the lagoon with a healthy new serving of Nature Beat, entitled "Lazers In The Jungle". The 4 track EP boasts all the humidity and tropical goodness of Jones' previous material, only, with a considerably more ernest approach to the island vibes.

Lead singles "North (We'll Be Warmer Up There)" and "The Island Does Crazy Things" have both garnered acclaim on radio, the blogosphere, and beyond, praising the Flamingo for his unique production style and desire to tackle more heartfelt subject matters on this release.

"Lazers In The Jungle" gets its official release on October 2nd, so dust off those GF day cobwebs and have a listen - it's like a free trip to the Bahamas!

"The genre that this Melbourne producer lists himself under is so good! It's called "Nature Beat" ... It's kind of like The Jungle Book but there's no python, no Shere Khan, just the fun, friendly animals!" - Declan Byrne (Triple J)

"‘North’ is another glimmering jungle jam from Jones, but has more of a thoughtful, ethereal vibe than much of his previous work" - Tone Deaf

"Chock full of traditional Afro-Cuban instruments and lavish atmospheric layers" - Red Bull Music

AJJ (FORMERLY ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD) ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Phoenix, Arizona garbage pop veterans AJJ (Formerly Andrew Jackson Jihad) return to Australia this September, armed with their unique collection of scuzzy punk screeds. Since touring Australia with The Smith Street Band in 2015 they’ve released their sixth album The Bible 2 out through SideOneDummy Records.

The album's mantra is placed at the centre: "No More Shame, No More Fear, No More Dread". The Bible 2 finds the band choosing intimacy over isolation, gravity over the vacuum, the stage instead of the scene. Album opener ‘Cody’s Theme’ rings like Jay Reatard distorted with Neutral Milk Hotel neuroses ("I set the mommy on fire / I set the baby on fire / not even Jesus could stop me").

Singer Sean Bonnette's narrative skills, and the band's growing nuances have never been more heartbreaking than on ‘Junkie Church’, a tender acoustic tale about affection and companionship on the lowest rung of society ("I used your rubs as ladders / and I climbed up your chest / and I jumped up and down just like a trampoline" Bonnett sings.) The bands synth, cello and bass are employed to haunting Leonard Cohen-like production ends, staccato plucks and serrated chords hiving like gnats then quickly dissolving into darkness.

Former touring partner Wil Wagner from The Smith Street Band recently said “Sean might be my favourite living lyricist and we’re all lucky to have his songs in our lives. His songs get better and more polished every album but still maintain all the weird beautiful qualities that made me fall in love ten years ago”.

Playing the already announced and sold out Yours & Owls Festival in Wollongong alongside At The Drive In, AJJ have announced a huge Australian tour, taking in most capital cities and a big chunk of regional areas.

Glass Diamonds Single Launch with KAIA and Kayo (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Glass Diamonds.jpg

After several months squirrelled about in a glittery synth cave, Glass Diamonds have emerged with their new single, Two Wrongs.

The band was born from an experiment in a studio in Melbourne one night in late 2016. Producer Jaymes Brown was playing with an old reel-to-reel tape machine, a drum machine and a synthesiser. A simple loop soon turned into a jam, layered with saturated drums, echoey, filtered synths and disco bass. Later, with the help of vocalist Tegan Thorogood, that jam turned into a song.

A couple of months of writing passed and before the duo knew it, they had an album's worth of material together. With the addition of bassist James Trewenack, what had started as a simple experiment soon morphed into a fully blown band.

Glass Diamonds will launch their new single and music video, Two Wrongs, upstairs at the Gasometer Hotel on Wednesday 25 October, with beatmaker and songstress Kaia and electronic duo Kayo.

Two Wrongs is an explosion of swirling synth, sweaty beats and soaring vocals, with a clear agenda for the dance floor.

Hailing from Albury, NSW and now based in Melbourne, The Northern Folk are a collective of eleven musical ambitionists spreading their unique brand of folk/pop/stomp/rock into the roots of small towns and big cities alike.

This October sees The NorthernFolk returning to the Gasometer to play a residency in anticipation of their latest single, ‘Get On’, recorded with Callum Barter (British India, Courtney Barnett, Saskwatch), a track that represents the band with their most focus and intent yet.

Laneway Presents Brings You 'All We Are' with Special Guests

Tickets

Liverpool-based trio ALL WE ARE today reveal details of their first-ever Australian performance, announcing they will take the stage of Melbourne’s The Gasometer on Saturday 28th October. Tickets are on sale now.

Known for their psych-driven atmospheric shows and groove based anthems, All We Are deliver a killer energy the moment they hit the stage. They’ve been sharpening their dynamic live set with performances across the UK and Europe, from Glastonbury and Latitude Festivals to Germany’s upcoming Reeperbahn Festival, and have headlined a UK tour including a date at London’s iconic Moth Club.

Produced by Kwes (Solange, Kano, Loyle Carner), All We Are’s sophomore album Sunny Hills was released earlier this year and finds the band with a new sense of urgency and a new sound; one that takes in psychedelia, krautrock and post-punk.

“An energetic and electrifying post-punk soundtrack” – Uncut

“The Kwes-produced record is shot through with neon groove and laced with the duskiness of The Cure’s Gothic Trilogy.” – Clash Music

Whilst political, the 9-track LP also documents the emotional rollercoaster the three-piece have been on in the past two years. “We wanted to make music that reflected the changes that were happening around us”, says Richard. “These are hard times for everyone, Liverpool is no stranger to that,” says Guro. “...and musicians are a reflection of the places they draw their influences from”.

About Heart Beach:

Reviews:

“There’s something very satisfying about a band that limits itself to a simple aesthetic and builds a world with what they have” (Rolling Stone)

“Like The Smiths, like Joy Division, this music is oddly and often wonderfully uplifting. Almost every song starts with a drawn-out chord poignant enough to break Rupert Murdoch’s stony heart. It takes a brave, thoughtful band to sound this vulnerable. Heart Beach are beautiful, beautiful, melancholy babies. Treasure them.” (The Guardian ★★★★)

Announcing the one-off return of blues punk legends Harem Scarem. To coincide with Laneway Music’s re-release of their back catalogue - including the classic 1986 album Pilgrim’s Progress, Dogman ep, and a trove of unreleased live material, demos, and other rareties - Harem Scarem will perform a strictly one-off show at the Gasometer Hotel, Thursday 9th November 2017.

In mid-80s Melbourne, the Blues and Punk Rock had a baby and they named it Harem Scarem – long since gone, but never forgotten, the classic line up featuring Christopher Marshall, Charlie Marshall, Barry Palmer and Chris Wilson reforms for a night of beauty and chaos as they return to their blistering blues-punk rock roots.

Fans with fond memories of the band, along with those who missed out the first time, can experience the intensity and power that is Harem Scarem live at the Gasometer Hotel on Thursday 9th November. Able support will be provided by the Sand Pebbles – fresh from sold-out shows following the release of their new album Pleasure Maps – and James McCann and the New Vindictives. Tix will run out the door – so be quick while they’re around!

Tumbleweed may disappear here and there for a while, the hiatus was nearly two years this time & it felt like it may have lasted forever, but when friends twisted our arm to pull ourselves together to do a few shows in May, we had to think about a bass player. What do you do? It is a sensitive issue, too difficult to contemplate. Jamie Cleaves has been playing around the 'Gong in bands since the early 90s, his band Shifter played many early shows with Tumbleweed and since then he’s been playing in Lenny's other band, The Pink Fits. He comes into the jam room and locks in immediately, not only his playing style but his personality as well, he just fits right into place. There is new spark, it feels good again and it sounds better than ever!

Tumbleweed play the Gasometer Hotel, 484 Smith St, Collingwood on Friday November 10th. Special guests HITS and Grindhouse, tickets available through OzTix.

Beaches 'Second Of Spring' Launch with Special Guests

Tickets $15+BF/$18 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Melbourne psych-rock icons Beaches launch their epic new double album Second Of Spring at the Gasometer in November, with special guests to be announced. Released in early September, the album is already being hailed as a 2017 must-have, with sterling reviews piling in from The Age, Rolling Stone, Herald Sun and The Quietus, and feature albums on RRR, FBI, PBS and 2SER. Second Of Spring is Beaches at their most expansive and assured - a vast, enveloping sonic landscape, filled with extended instrumentals, overdriven psych-outs and propulsive pop nuggets.

Beaches’ much-loved second album She Beats brought the band international acclaim in 2013. Featuring guest guitar by German motorik hero Michael Rother (Neu, Harmonia), the album earned raves from Pitchfork, Stereogum, Gorilla Vs Bear, Spin and elsewhere. Their self-titled 2008 debut was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize (as was She Beats), and included in glossy coffee table book 100 Best Australian Albums. Beaches have toured the US twice, playing SXSW and Austin Psych Fest, and shared stages with Roky Erickson, Deerhunter, The Cult, Thee Oh Sees, Lightning Bolt, Mogwai, Best Coast and more.

Already revered as sprawling, swirling psych overlords, Second Of Spring is Beaches’ undeniable magnum opus.

Mesa Cosa 'Es El Demons' Launch with Special Guests

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

This year Mesa Cosa has raised the devil, they've started their own underground snake worshipping cult, they pronounced their love of blood AND brains, they even started a big fire. Now Melbourne's five (sometimes six, sometimes seven) headed hydra Mesa Cosa are ready to release a new album and tour its contents while spreading their message of occult celebration throughout Australia and Japan.

Don't fear the wizard, 'El Es Demons' is a 12-track 45 minute trip into some of the finest music ever produced on this world, nay indeed, the underworld.

In the words of Def Leppard's Phil Collen taken from the Def Leppard Hysteria 30th Anniversary documentary: 'If they can put a man on the moon, they can fit 45 minutes of music onto a vinyl record, what with the new technology and all that'

"They said we couldn't fit it all in one vinyl, WE JUST LOWERED THE AUDIO QUALITY" - Mesa Cosa

Still fatigued from the unexpected success of their first two sold out releases, Mesa Cosa managed to find the inspiration in the hum drum of catching the 86 tram and thinking about what would happen if everyone in it were suddenly sucked into a giant satanic wormhole upon which there is no return. 'Satanic songs from the 86' (Working title) will be the accompanying folk-punk acoustic release no one is waiting for.

Recorded by Nao Anzai and mixed by Stu Mckenzie from King Googly Eggs and the Googly Boys, the record includes what are sure to become timeless classics such as 'Ghostdog' a song about a dead dog that becomes a dead ghost, and 'No Return' celebrating the life and times of Thelma and indeed, Louise, Mesa Cosa have created an album that will live on throughout the ages.

Launched on November 1st, the record comes with a printed black and white cover and a black vinyl with a black sleeve for which they paid $30 extra from the satanic print shop of doom that is pressing this abomination.

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE... Mesa Cosa will be heading to Japan in October taking their famous Halloween celebrations around the world.

With shows all across Australia in November this is a party and a record you cannot afford to miss. Because tickets are only $12 pre sale, and the records come in discount bundles.

Niche Presents Gabriel Garzon Montano with Special Guests

Tickets $35+BF/$40 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Niche are excited to present the Australian debut of Brooklyn-born and raised singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano.

His debut album Jardín comes on the heels of three intense years of touring, writing and recording. Soon after the 2014 release of his debut EP, Bishouné: Alma del Huila, Gabriel was invited out on the road by rock legend Lenny Kravitz, as direct support concerts across Europe. The day after playing Wembley Arena, he received a call notifying him that his song "6 8" would be sampled by Drake on his full-length If You're Reading This, It's Too Late. The months following these cosigns Garzón-Montano was featured at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, and on back-to-back tours with English indie-rockers Glass Animals and Stones Throw label mate Mayer Hawthorne.

On Jardín, Gabriel Garzón-Montano sings of the struggles and uncertainties of the many- layered game that is America today, from the specific doubt and double consciousness of the first- generation hustle, to the universal challenges of love, legacy, and exploring the maze of one's own mind.

A child of immigrant parents - a child of Brooklyn, NY - Garzón-Montano’s aesthetic is an extension of his French-Colombian heritage, a pastiche of Bach sonatas, cumbia records, and the machine gun funk that echoes to this day from behind half-rolled tints up and down Nostrand Ave. His mother, a member of the Philip Glass ensemble in the 1990’s, instilled within him a painstaking attention to detail that remains a hallmark of his process. “My mother is the reason I love music,” he says. Her rigorous classical instruction served as his creative engine as he honed his skills over the course of years in the lab, copping Stevie's changes, studying Prince's lyrics, and absorbing the beat theses of Timbaland, Dilla, and Pete Rock.

Not since John Lydon changed it up from the Sex Pistols to PiL has a curveball felt so bracingly exhilarating.

"Tropical Fuck Storm are already one of the most exciting Australian acts around, and ‘Chameleon Paint’ is already one of the songs of the goddamn year.

Tickets $20+BF/$25 on the door.

After a busy and exciting year for We Lost The Sea, including their first and very successful tour to Europe, they will be wrapping it up with a small run of shows to celebrate the 5th anniversary of their acclaimed second album The Quietest Place On Earth.

TQPOE was released on December 1, 2012. This record was an important step for them and included some powerful songs that would help define their sound and them as a band. It was also the last album that their late friend and frontman, Chris Torpy, would be on, after taking his own life in March 2013.

This is a special record for the band and fans and has rarely been played live since losing Chris. This run of shows will include songs from this album and the highly acclaimed Departure Songs and a couple of other surprises. They will be joined by longtime friend Jarrod Krafczyk (The Amenta, At Dark, Omerata) on vocal duties, and Brendon Warner will be back on 3rd guitar for this tour.

These will be the last shows for their year and will see the band go into writing and recording mode to work on their next album, scheduled for release some time in 2018.

Irish Australian artist Áine Tyrrell has taken yet another powerful and creative leap with her latest release – new EP Fledging Fall. The Gasometer Hotel in Melbourne is the perfect setting for the launch of her new EP.

Amazing special guest: Yirrmal will open up the night. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7qN3Uvh1nc

Fledging Fall is out now through Brisbane label SUGARRUSHMusic and still captures elements of her traditional folk roots. But this striking group of songs captures a new confidence as she finds a new creative voice and a whole new palette of sounds. It is also a record where ´Áine has taken collaboration to new levels.

“My musical family flew in from all corners of the world to see what they could add to our three days of work," she explains. "The songs flew back and forth from Australia to Ireland to America and each time I was in awe of the hands that came into help this little EP hatch into the best damn thing it could be. The only thing that interrupted our recordings were the birds. Chickens, magpies, and all the other birds of the forest came and checked in every now and then to see what we were up to. We decided on a name of Fledging Fall for the body of work as this piece of work represents the idea of what comes next after the hatching of my first album.”

LISTEN TO FLEDGLING FALL NOW ON SPOTIFY

Áine has just completed her first European and Irish tour in over six years – which saw her receive rave reviews. She had her song "Don't Be Left Crying" hit number 1 the national Irish broadcaster RTE indie releases chart as well as the EP being included in and move into the top ten of the 'World Music" iTunes charts in both Ireland and Australia.

The release of Fledging Fall comes as Áine continues work on her next album in Ireland with Glen Hansard's band The Frames, Liam O'Maonlai (Hothouse Flowers), and long time producer Mark Stanley.

Australian audiences will get the chance to experience Fledgling Fall live with a huge tour throughout September. October and November 2017 including major festivals and sharing the stage with fellow Irish songwriters @Wallis Bird and Declan O Rourke.

The Sinking Teeth 'Vancouver' Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets

THE SINKING TEETH began in a flat above a particularly shady pawnshop in Brunswick, Victoria. There were holes in the walls, the roof leaked badly and the owner of the pawnshop said he would shoot us if we practiced there. The place was a dive, but it was perfect for writing grubby tunes. We had some epic parties, wrote a few songs and then eventually part of the roof caved in, so we had to move out.

We had all met through sharing bills in various bands/the occasional hello on a Saturday night in the city. Eventually we worked out that we had a bunch of stuff in common. The Sinking Teeth was built as an outlet. Something we hadn’t done before - something new to "sink our teeth into".

We eventually found another derelict empty office space to move into. It lasted all of 3 months. A few noise complaints and a visit from the council and we were out again. We have now found our feet and are living in a house in Brunswick East with some friends – it’s a good community vibe. We cut our teeth playing all over Melbourne - shitty clubs/great pubs/parks/drainage ditches, whatever.

The thing about us is that even though we are really close, we are really different. We are constantly listening to different music and we bring those influences to the table. When one of us is listening to Les Savy Fav the others will be listening to Minus The Bear, Lionel Ritchie, Anchors, Title Fight – it gets a little weird, but it keeps things fresh. Probably the thickest of our common threads is that we are all driven to push this thing as far as it will go.

Last year we released a debut EP, White Water, and managed to tag along on tour with some awesome bands including Calling All Cars, Shihad and Bodyjar. Live shows are what we live for.

“You Can’t Build A Bike Out of Muffins” is the first single from our second EP, Salt & Stitches, due out soon.

So... give us a listen. Come to a show. We’ll give you a cuddle.

All Tomorrow's Wedding Parties with Alex Lahey, Lanks, Fan Girl & More

Tickets $20+BF. Doors 7.30 PM

YES CAMPAIGN FUNDRAISING PARTY - Bands, DJs, and local artists coming together for equality and raising money for the Yes! campaign and Minus18, a youth led LGBTIQ organisation. Oh, and there'll be a good old fashion raffle too with some incredible prizes on offer. Woohoo!

It's probably fair to say that we're all super weary of the current "respectful debate" over changing the current marriage laws so they're inclusive for all Australians. Whether you're a member of the LGBTI community or an ally, it's pretty emotionally draining stuff - and perhaps the worst part is the feeling of helplessness as we sit back and wait to find out the result of the "non binding postal survey".

We've been trying to figure out a way we could get involved and do SOMETHING, so after much consideration we decided the best course of action would be to throw an epic party at the Gasometer Hotel, with heaps of great performers and DJs and raffles with incredible prizes, and give all the money raised to two great organisations: the Yes campaign, and Minus18 (a youth led LGBTI organisation - because god knows young people in the community are going to need as much support as possible right now).

The current line up includes Alex Lahey (solo), Lanks, and Fan Girl - and there's more to be announced. Between the bands you can enjoy sweet tunes from guest DJs including Alice Ivy, NO ZU, Pony Face, and The Harpoons, and we'll also be selling raffle tickets throughout the night with some incredible prizes on offer from live music venues around Melbourne, record labels, wedding industry vendors, artists, publishers, and more. Assorted legends like Myf Warhurst (Double J), Fee B Squared (RRR), and Kate McCartney + Kate McLennan (Get Krack!n, The Katering Show) will be drawing the raffles and showing their support for a great cause. Plus there's a silent auction curated by Melbourne Arts Club featuring great local artists like Jason Parker, J Forsyth, Bec Smith, Lauren Guymer, Madison Griffiths, Tegan Iversen, and more!

We'd love to see some friendly faces down there for a rollicking good time in the name of equality - tickets are available via the Gaso website and on the door (if there are any left!).

The General Assembly Single Launch with Howlite + Louise Terra (UPSTAIRS)

$12.5+BF/$15 on the door. Doors at 7.00 PM

This September, The General Assembly releases the lead single from its upcoming debut album (due late 2017).

The single, Vanishing Point, fulfils the promise of live shows that audiences have called “achingly beautiful", “divine", “so powerful and gorgeous!", "truly incredible” and “an emotional experience”.

Content-wise, it articulates the transition back to nature at death. For singer and songwriter Matt Wicking, “Lyrically, I’m particularly interested in the points where human and non-human nature connect, where the lines blur and dissolve.”

With production by D.A.Calf (Mojo Juju, Kira Puru, The Seabellies), reverb-drenched guitars create a swelling soundscape that’s undercut by distorted bass and punctuated by dynamic beats (played by Choi from Cookin’ on 3 Burners).

Support on the night comes from HOWLITE and LOUISE TERRA.

They went on to enlist Ben Plant aka Miami Horror to produce and DJ for the band, and magic happened. They won a Triple J Unearthed competition, went on to tour the world and release music that topped the Beatport charts and get heaps of views on youtube. But alas, it was all too good to be true, and the band broke up after 3 years. Now they're back and theyre playing the exact same show they used to play and it's as trashy and fun as you remember. They might add a new song if they cbf putting one together. Probs not tho. lol.

COMPOUND (Nice Music)

"Nice Music is proud to present the debut release from Melbourne's Per Bystrom (Exhaustion, Ooga Boogas) as a solo artist, emerging from an intense period of gestation and realisation as Compound. Bystrom has constructed a purely synthetic vocabulary as his expressive ammunition on 'Eternal Estate' - plaintive swathes of sines and gravelled synth tones ululate in and out of haunted futurist rhythms, searching for context or meaning almost playfully within a self-imposed void. An urgency to reconcile the emotional stress which we cannot ever fully reconcile pulses dramatically through this music; it is in and of itself, perhaps but a momentary screenshot in time, wavering and distorting in the distance either side of this present moment. It's palpable that these pieces were composed and recorded at the paramount of some sort of existential nexus, the notion of the unknown both worrying and exciting in equal measure, Bystrom chooses to dive headlong into the anxiety in order to pass through it and find his voice. For fans of Vangelis, Ekoplekz"

HARM MINIMISATION SAVES LIVES

Are you appalled of the governments ineffective war on drugs?

Drug testing has been a proven method to save lives, as has a Supervised Injecting Facility (SIF), which is already been used in various parts of the world, where it has has been successful.

Our aim is to raise money and awareness to fund FREE DRUG TESTING SERVICES for nightclubs and festivals all around Victoria, as well advocating for a local Supervised Injection Facility.

We cannot afford to wait for Government action, as their inaction is leading to frequent deaths.

The government is waging a campaign against recreational drug users by using militarized police force to spread fear in the wider community.

It is time to see drug use as a healthcare care issue instead of law and order issue.

THE WAR ON DRUGS HAS FAILED

Did you know drug testing is currently illegal in Victoria?

Thats why we want to engage in a peaceful protest to prevent future deaths and hospitalisation.

Come for a drink and a dance and support the cause, at everyones favourite Northside venue “The Gasometer”.

She will be joined by her remarkable band, with support from Dalli and Taylah Carroll for a gathering of original music not to be missed.

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. Her songwriting explores both ends of the scale from delicate to powerful, and she paints the imagery in these songs vividly – drawn from life and nature, loss and small victories.

Dalli is an indie/pop songwriter , weaving electronic elements throughout his set. With rich song-writing, eyebrow raising themes and emotionally charged vocals will hit you right in the feels.

Taylah Carroll has a debut EP under her belt and another to be released in 2018. She is a compelling songstress with wholly honest and personal lyrics, an enigmatic aura and ethereal sound.
