AIME Presents: YES with Mojo Juju, Robbie Millar, Emily Wurramara & Benny Walker

Tickets $10 +BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.45 PM

50 years ago, Australia said 'yes' to giving Indigenous Australians the vote, giving all citizens the right to shape its political future. 25 years later, in 1992, the 'Mabo Decision' declared that Australia was not an uninhabited wasteland before the British arrived, but was occupied by the Indigenous peoples for several centuries.

Due to these two milestones in Aboriginal rights, this year's reconciliation week is something to get excited about! In honour of the 25th and 50th anniversaries of these two major victories, AIME are having a celebration of Indigenous music, showcasing, talented Indigenous artists Benny Walker, Robbie Miller, Emily Wurramura and Mojo Ju Ju performing hits such as 'Come take it all' and 'black smoke.' Look forward to seeing you there !

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.

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.

Melbourne’s Liz Stringer has asked four of her songwriting elders to sit down with her at the Gasometer, over the four Tuesdays in June, to have a conversation with her about their relationship with their art, the evolution of their careers and what continues to drive them. And to play some select tunes from their formidably impressive back-catalogues.

Liz’s guests are four of Australia’s most loved and enduring performers, all conducting varied, influential and continually evolving careers in the music business, spanning the last few decades.

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 Special Guests

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.

"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.

LEAPS & BOUNDS MUSIC FESTIVAL PRESENTS: FEE B SQUARED’S CLASS OF 2018: featuring: Shrimp Witch and more to be announced!

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.

More to be announced.

Wet Lips 'Album Launch' with Terrible Truths & Pillow Pro

Tickets $13+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Wet Lips return to the Gasometer to launch their debut, self-titled album with friends Terrible Truths and Pillow Pro. The record comes five years after Wet Lips formed and an understandably long wait for their fans. It features a collection of femme empowering tracks written over the past five years, informed by the experience of taking up space on male dominated line ups and forming a community of their own. Recorded by Paul Maybury at A Secret Location Sound Recording, the trio's trademark power chords cur through sweet bass hooks and stone-age thump to create the sort of primitive rock and roll that shines through on the record. Joining Wet Lips on the night will be post-punks Terrible Truths, who have been an inspiration to the band over the years, and Pillow Pro will bring their dreamy RnB bangers. More acts and DJs to be confirmed soon.

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

It's taken Harmony Byrne years of performing as a solo artist to take a deep breathe and brave the realm of band-hood. Now, she can't stop herself collaborating with many different people, with many different sounds, which she will be sharing with us at her May residency.

“Residencies can be a real challenge,” says Harmony, “trying to keep people interested each week and interesting for myself also, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to share the diversity of what I do. Being involved in a few projects at the moment, I have noticed how enriching it is not to limit myself to one ‘style’ or ‘genre’. Playing electronic music can be just as soulful as playing with a blues band, and playing solo can be just as loud as playing with a rock n roll band.”

For your musical pallets enjoyment, Harmony Byrne brings you a taste of her current projects, offering something honest and different each week. Along with a compelling array of support acts, you’ll be skipping your cheap tuesday parmaz, and popping on down to the Gaso for a delectable 4-course-meal style month of Harmony’s tunes.

Still Works are hosting a little party upstairs at the The Gasometer Hotel. Opening the night is none other than Bec Rigby AKA BigRig AKA The Harpoons swooner. We’re pretty excited to break the champagne bottle on her keyboard to christen her slightly more esoteric, electronic solo set. Expect some left field, stripped back instrumentals dripped with her timeless voice. Equally psyched for Golden Girls complimenting the mood with their dark but charming, expansive pop master pieces. Layered synths and guitars, big reverbs and bone chilling vocals. Still Works will be doing our thing but with more smoke machines and strobe lights! DJ FUBU (for us by us) will be carefully curating music in between and after sets so wear your joggers.

Jade Imagine 'What The Fuck Was I Thinking?' Launch with Pearls, Lalic, Poppongene

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

Big news. Jade Imagine are about to hatch a love letter to low-fi, slacker-fuzz-dream pop bathed in the glow of ’70s surf-music with their debut EP What The Fuck Was I Thinking - out April 28 via Milk! Records. Not only that, the band have today dropped a new video clip for single 'Walkin' Around', and announced a slew of live dates across April and May.

Already, the EP’s first two singles ‘Stay Awake’ and ‘Walkin’ Around’ are earning big props: Rolling Stone pegged ‘Stay Awake’ as “a shimmering summer-invite track”, putting us right back in mind of surf, sun and sky.

The new 'Walkin' Around' video was directed by Clancy Walker (who's previously directed for Sea Shepherd in Antarctica and made video clips for rapper Allday) with cinematography by Sean T. Barnes (who works regularly with the Underground Lovers). Jade McInally, Jade Imagine’s front babe and brains said, "It was filmed on a street in Coburg that was randomly chosen by Clancy because there were a strip of good looking, unassuming shopfronts."

Jade Imagine have announced a long list of live dates throughout April and May to launch the EP, playing with the full band in-check. They'll play a release day in-store at Polyester Records on April 28, at the Corner Hotel with Cash Savage and the Last Drinks on May 6, The Tote with Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever on May 12, and headline EP launch shows at The Gaso in Melbourne on May 19, in Brisbane on May 25 at The End and in Sydney at the Golden Age Cinema on May 27. Supports for the two headline shows are soon to be announced.

McInally cut her band teeth with her own electro project Tantrums in 2004. Since then she’s fleshed out scene favourites like Jess Cornelius’ Teeth and Tongue and backed the best on bass (you can catch her onstage with Jess Ribeiro). With some urging from mates in the know, at the end of 2015 McInally flexed her songwriting muscle, deciding it was time to play ringleader to her own band of musical-mischief makers again. “I’m a songwriter, and it took me so long to realise that,” McInally says. “I need to be writing, because that’s how I feel good.”

Picking up a loaner guitar from Dan Kelly, McInally set about writing all of the tunes for Jade Imagine’s six-track debut EP What The Fuck Was I Thinking. “I think that guitar had some kind of good juju in it,” she reflects. “It’s got some amazing vibes. I picked it up and it made me feel like I was sitting on a beach somewhere,” which touches on one of McInally’s obsessions. McInally is almost always California dreaming, albeit via Melbourne. “In my mind, all of my songs are about missing the coast and wanting to go surfing everyday, even if they’re not actually about that.”

After a spot of bedroom recording, McInally sent a bunch of demos to Dave Mudie (drummer with Courtney Barnett). Mudie not only gave them the thumbs up, he took the liberty of laying down some drums and steered pre-production. Buoyed by the outcome, McInally acquired her band members, Pied-Piper style. The fluid line-up revolves around Liam “Snowy” Halliwell (The Ocean Party, Ciggie Witch) on bass, producer/guitarist Tim Harvey (Emma Louise, Real Feelings) and Jen Sholakis (East Brunswick All Girls Choir, Jen Cloher) on drums.

Despite the fact that McInally’s out front and had the bones of the songs for What The Fuck Was I Thinking under her belt before the band came onboard, Jade Imagine’s no autocracy. “I’m kind of a chill personality when I’m playing music with people and I don’t like to tell people what to play: I’m a vibes guy,” McInally explains. “I just like playing with people in rehearsal and when we come across a cool sound, it’ll stick and I’ll point it out, but I’m not one to say, ‘you’re playing that and you’re playing that’. All of my bandmates are so distinct in their style and playing, so I never got them to join the band with the intention that I’d get them to play differently.”

Recorded over a six month period at Mudie’s house and in an epic-DIY effort in McInally’s bedroom (it involved a lot of blankets, other people’s mics and a “control room” in the hallway) with both Mudie and Harvey driving production at various points, What The Fuck Was I Thinking is melting pot of mid-sixties Cali’ vibes, the Church (McInally’s favourite band), surf music (of course), T-Rex, Fleetwood Mac, the Triffids and the Go-Betweens. “Whenever I record with Tim [Harvey] we have a little session beforehand and listen to songs from other bands and talk about what sounds we want,” McInally reflects of the experience. “It’s all very measured with him. For instance, on the drums for ‘Walkin’ Around’, Fleetwood Mac was a reference, but so was Neu and that definitely doesn’t come through. With Dave [Mudie], it’s more, ‘like let’s throw some things at the wall and see what sticks’, in a good way.”

What the Fuck Was I Thinking comes out on Milk! Records on April 28. It's available to pre-order now on limited edition milky white vinyl via Milk!.

~ TUESDAYS IN MAY ~ Dearest Friends! It's taken me years of performing solo to take a deep breathe and brave the realm of band-hood.

Call me greedy but now I can't seem to stop myself from collaborating with many different people, with many different sounds... some of which I'll be sharing with you for this Residency.

Residencies can be a real challenge - trying to keep people interested each week and interesting for myself also...

So I thought this would be a great opportunity to share the diversity of what I do. Being involved in a few projects at the moment I have noticed how enriching it is not to limit myself to one ‘style’ or ‘genre’. Playing electronic music can be just as soulful as playing with a blues band, and playing solo can be just as loud as playing with a rock n roll band.

For your musical pallets enjoyment, I'm bringing you a taste of my current projects, offering something honest and different each week.

Orcha EP Launch with Cool Explosions, Luboku and Zol Balint

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 6.00 PM

Melbourne Violinist ORCHA is releasing a debut EP at the Gasometer Hotel Upstairs on May 14th.

Combining vibrant and intricate Violin created sounds with lush beats and soaring vocals, ORCHA walks the line between light and dark, experimenting and exploring the harmonic possibilities of the Violin. An accomplished performer, ORCHA draws on a wealth of experience in electronic, folk, jazz and classical music to embrace the endless possibilities of the Violin. The music is dreamy and evocative, bridging the gap between acoustic and electronic sound, immersing the listener in a haunting soundscape of textures and tones.

"I started ORCHA as a passion project and a test of my skills as a Violinist. I always found myself thinking that I could emulate so many of the electronic sounds that I hear in music using my Violin through effects and started to experiment. Having the limitation of using only Violin forces me to get a lot more creative with how I go about filling out the entire harmonic structure of the song. I take inspiration from the surreal experiences of life, the joy and pain we feel every day in the modern world and I try to convey a sense of beauty and fragility in my music.”

Special guest announced soon + visuals and installations.

Billy Davis & The Good Lords with Swell & Tentendo

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

To celebrate the release their upcoming new single ‘Ball & Chain’ Billy Davis & The Good Lords will be hitting the road to perform two very special headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

Billy Davis is a musical juggernaut which features up to 11 members when playing live, pieced together by the multi-talented band leader and chief-songwriter William Rimington. Their style mirrors luminaries like Kaytranada, Anderson Paak and the Internet, with their upbeat jams appearing as a breath of fresh air on the Australian music scene.

One of the tightest bands going around, Billy Davis has thrilled a growing number of fans with their energetic live show. Aside from sharing the stage with the likes of Anderson .Paak and Blackalicious, they've also featured at Strawberry Fields Festival and Let Them Eat Cake, with their growing support culminating in a standout set at the recent Golden Plains Festival.

A sought-after session musician in his own right, Rimington has spent the last couple of years immersing himself into the fruitful Melbourne neo-soul & Hip-Hop scene, before joining forces with influential collective The Operatives. Quickly assembling the Billy Davis project, the group's first album Bad Ending was released independently earlier last year to a burst of fanfare. Now, the band are readying themselves to step into the spotlight with exciting new material quickly appearing on the horizon.

“...we here at Okayplayer are excited to spotlight this new material, as “No Longer Lovers” is one to definitely not sleep on."' - Okayplayer

"Billy Davis has made THE jam. Backed by an amazing group of musicians, you'll be feeling this track whatever phase of love or life you're in."' - Indie Shuffle

"Melbourne's Billy Davis knows how to polish soulful influence with modern technique.” - Pigeons & Planes
