Supporting is Kit Warhurst (famed for his work with seminal Melbourne rock band Rocket Science) and Robert Muinos, known for his American slow-jam songwriting and his guitar playing with Saskwatch and Dorsal Fins.

Wanderers 'Something For A Distraction' EP Launch

Tickets $7+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 7.00 PM

WANDERERS kicked off 2017 with the release of their EP ‘Something For a Distraction’. Coming off the back of a very successful 2016 and will see them touring the country extensively, returning to Melbourne Saturday April 29th upstairs at The Gaso.

‘…and what followed was Wanderers’ trademark symphony of moods- the shredding of guitar riffs, dreamy harmonies, funky bass and a general feeling of nostalgia.’ - This is Radelaide

This sophomore EP reflects the tightness of a band that can often only be achieve through the constant touring. The new single Loco has been described as a 'breezy blues-rock number that steadily builds into a raunchy, soulful jam' and has been met with rave reveiws from all corners of the globe.

‘You simply can’t listen to this music and not groove.’ – The AU Review.

The Northern Folk 'Stumble On Home' with The Bean Project

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

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. Soaring saxes, roaring brass, and bashful bass frame the band's two lead vocals, with multi-layered harmonies and addictive percussion in tow. From intimate ballads to big-band boot stompers, The Northern Folk's big sound proves flexible both on stage and on record, and is continuing to earn them a following wherever they travel. The Northern Folk's next stop in Melbourne is a return trip to The Gasometer in Collingwood on Wednesday May 3.

They’ve just wrapped US shows alongside the ball-busting Dropkick Murphys, were recently announced on California’s It’s Not Dead Fest alongside punkers Rancid, while the one and only Green Day invited them to tour the globe as their support on the US trio’s epic Revolution Radio World Tour… meet the The Interrupters!

‘THE BAND PLAY EFFORTLESSLY, AND SINGER AIMEE INTERRUPTER IS CERTAINLY A SHOO-IN FOR NEXT PUNK ROCK STAR STATUS’ – UBERROCK

‘THEY SEAMLESSLY FUSE ENERGETIC BOUNCY SKA RHYTHMS WITH HARDCORE MACHINE GUN RIFFING AND A FEROCIOUS DELIVERY’ – ROCK N REEL REVIEWS

With Green Day’s Australia/New Zealand tour in April/May quickly approaching, Frontier Touring is chuffed to announce a special headline gig from Los Angeles-based, ska-punker The Interrupters – taking place at Collingwood’s The Gasometer Hotel on Thursday 4 May. Tickets are on sale Thursday 30 March.

Formed in 2012, The Interrupters – Aimee Interrupter (vocals), Kevin Bivona (guitar), Justin Bovina (bass) and Jesse Bovina (drums) – burst onto the scene after releasing their impressive self-titled debut in 2014, which saw the rockers sign with legendary label Hellcat Records. 2016 brought acclaimed sophomore album Say It Out Loud – produced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong (who features on track ‘Phantom City’), a record undeniably fun but urgent in message.

The Interrupters’ lyrics confront everything from social control and self-empowerment in songs such as ‘By My Side’ or ‘On A Turntable’, plus issues like domestic violence in ‘She Got Arrested’. Filled with frenetic energy and bold upstrokes, this is one formidable live show!

Special guest for the night is Melbourne singer/songwriter Luke Yeoward and the Half Way. The 131's frontman and former singer and guitarist of local favourites KING CANNONS returns in 2017 with his upcoming debut album #Ghosts, released Friday 21 April: http://www.lukeyeoward.com/releases

Inspired by fatherhood to exemplify the importance of passion, #Ghosts is a perfect mixture of everything that’s influenced Yeoward in his lifetime – take a listen to title track here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVXLM15KBl0

Whether playing in front of thousands at arenas alongside Green Day next month – second show on sale now – or this up close and personal gig at the Gasometer, don’t miss The Interrupters!

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

Presented by Multicultural Arts Victoria, Multi Futurism at The Gasometer on the 5th of May is the first in a series of events showcasing curated performances between artists and musicians representing Victoria’s multi-cultural soul. Drawing on MAV’s annual Re-mastered Myths and Visible music programs with an aim to deconstruct stereo types of what audiences may consider “World Music”, Multi Futurism brings together artists from the contemporary and traditional, the mainstream and the underground, the cerebral and the improvisational for a night of unique and unexpected collaborations. From Afro beat infused hiphop to cutting edge electronica with Indian Classical music to outspoken female rap crews to Samoan choirs and blues singers plus so much more. Multi Futurism is all about challenging an audience to perceive differing instrumentation, musical genres and cultural influences as one of Melbourne’s strongest bonds and creative well springs. “World Music” is a parochial catch-all marketing term for non-Western music of all genres. “Multi Futurism” is an inclusive term indicating a representation of music, culture, style and sounds from all over the world. Artists – Cool Out Sun feat. Lamine Sonko + Nfa Jones + Sensible J + Nui Moon: Cool Out Sun is a collaboration of 4 drum-centric Artists who love melody, comprised of Sensible J (the producer and other half of Remi) Lamine Sonko (creator and lead of The African Intelligence), Nui Moon (Future Roots & Public Opinion Afro Orchestra) and N’fa Jones (House of Beige and 1200 Techniques) Cool Out Sun make Afro percussive, Hiphop infused world music designed for deep listening, emotive escape and dance floor fiasco.

Mojo Juju + The Pacific Island Choir of Victoria : Mojo Juju is a unique voice in the Australian music landscape drawing on her Filipino and Indigenous heritage and fusing it with deep soulful stylings with a hot rhythm section. Mojo and her band will be backed by a 12 piece Samoan choir PASEFIKA VITORIA CHOIR (The Pacific Island Choir of Victoria) playing a set of originals and some Island music classics.

Haiku Hands + Muma Doesa + Jonathon Homsey + Madfox: A collaboration between Sydney/Melbourne’s Haiku Hands who perform raw, pop, electronic dance music, vocals and samples from Muma Doesa's hip hop background and Jonathan Homsey and MadFox who are contemporary and street dancers respectively and members of the waacking crew Burn City Waack.

Amin Payne + Hari Sivanesan // The Temporary Autonomous Zone: This is a Trio collaboration curated by Amin Payne & Hari Sivanesan where Traditional Indian music fuses with Hiphop elements and modern technology creating something fresh to bring both cultures & sounds together. This a very rare occasion and project that molds the analog vs digital world together to connect the audience with the familiar sounds and educated them with the not so familiar. Temporary Autonomous Zone: Temporary Autonomous Zone is a unique musical experience creating a vortex into a state of bone shaking, body grooving, psychedelic euphoria T.A.Z has a sound that fuses the grooves of the neo soul revolution, with the experimental sounds of the 60’s and the mysterious world of the avant-garde. The ensemble consists of Niel Morris, Joel Ma, Jesse Chin Quan, Michael Cooper, Moses Carr and Mat Robb. DJ - Astronauts Choice

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.

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

Orcha EP Launch with Cool Explosions, Loboku and Zol Balint (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 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.

Jade Imagine 'What The Fuck Was I Thinking?' Launch with Special Guests

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!.

Tickets $5 on the door

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.

Harmony Byrne with The Teskey Brothers & Zoe Fox and The Rocket Clocks

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.

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.

10-piece afro-funk sensation Lyre Byrdland have been melting down clubs in Sydney for the past two years and are now ready to take their mix of Nigerian afro-beat and tight funk to the Gasometer as part of their first national tour. With a four-piece horn line-up featuring some of Sydney’s grooviest masters of brass and a powerful rhythm section that never stops moving, Lyre Byrdland has honed their distinctly modern sound to get your heart pumping and your body moving. Drawing inspiration from the greats of the genre such as Fela Kuti and The Daktaris as well contemporary powerhouses Daft Punk and Snarky Puppy, Lyre Byrdland’s sound is both reassuringly familiar like a comfy old sweater but strikingly fresh like a new pair of jeans.

Featuring members of The Cactus Channel, Emanuel Ciccolini's Tex Mex Takeout, The Brady's and other undiscovered Melbourne gems, Karate Boogaloo deliver serious grooves with the speed of a Jackie Chan snap kick but with the fun of Post Man Pat!
What more could you want? Probably not much.

Laneous plays improvised soul with a loop pedal and lyrics inspired by whatever is going on at the time and a funky drummer.

Xani (EP Launch) & This Way North (Single Launch) with Brooke Russell

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

Ask Xani Kolac (Clare Bowditch, Tim Rogers, My Friend the Chocolate Cake, Martin Martini & the Bone Palace Orchestra) to describe her latest batch of songs for her debut solo project, XANI, and she’ll tell you that there are “songs about being needy and songs that are downright depressing”. These are not words that spring to mind when one encounters electric violinist and AU Review Best Live Instrumentalist nominee, Xani, onstage or off. Being a naturally energetic and bubbly performer, Kolac toes the line in her songwriting perfectly between being “happy but kind of sad”.

XANI’s debut EP, simply titled, “1”, four tracks laid thick with country guitar, pop choruses, and Kolac’s own trademark strings that shimmer and soar throughout, will launch at The Gasometer on April 26th. Joining her onstage will be Mark Leahy on drums (The Twoks), Cristian Barbieri on guitar (Billy Davis), Josh Jones on bass (Dan Sultan), and crooning backing vocals delivered by Olivia Nathan, Jacinta Caruana and Rex Sutton.

In a thrilling double bill, This Way North are releasing their second track for 2017, "Pressure". Following February’s summer sizzler, "Head Above Water", the Melbourne duo aren't mucking around, creating another bangin' tune. Sounding like an 80’s teenage movie anthem, this pop gem drips with lush guitar and tight, synth-like drumming. Recorded during in a stint in Toronto with producer, Derek Downham, This Way North were pushed in a direction that neither could have predicted, giving birth to an exciting new alt-pop sound.

This Way North will head out on a national tour to all major east coast cities and SA, alongside some regional shows in the Northern Territory (Wide Open Space Festival), Queensland (Sol Bar Maroochydore) and NSW (Mullumbimby and Wollumbi) in support of "Pressure's" release.

Opening the night, Brooke Russell will effortlessly blend vintage Americana with widescreen, dark country, singing her songs about boozy nights, bad decisions, broken hearts and the best intentions. Brooke is currently in the studio making her much anticipated next record.

Fierce Mild - Gaso Residency and Video Launch

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Stargazed Projection Art + Music Festival is proud to present:

Fierce Mild / Solaris Video Launch and Residency - 18th & 25th April at The Gasometer

“It’s like Mogwai or Explosions In The Sky but with actual vocals, and if that doesn’t sound amazing to you, I don’t know what will!” - Kill Your Stereo

Solaris, the latest single by Fierce Mild, was written entirely as a response to a dream journal. The result is something that makes sense in the moment but leaves you with a feeling of not knowing entirely what happened. Continually playing with the idea of conscious and subconscious interaction, the video explores a tumultuous psyche with the inspiration of a haunting murder which took place on the Great Ocean Road.

The video as well as Fierce Mild’s performance is like being caught in a very beautiful yet very strange dream; one that is as dynamic as it surreal. The sextet bombards audiences with a continuous, cinematic psycho-thriller from start-to-finish.

Genre-wandering walls of psych, shoegaze, post-rock, and electro-acoustic dub are delivered with a folk-tinged Australian lyricism, whilst the stunning surrealist-horror projection works of live video artist Stephanie Peters are matched to beautiful dreamscapes of sound art and electric cello between songs that bind the music together into a singular cohesive narrative.

"I totally see the Gareth Liddiard comparisons! I found myself being constantly impressed and surprised from start to finish." - Veronica Milson (JJJ)

Fierce Mild are joined by a stellar lineup of local artists and VJs TBA shortly

Good Boy & Jarrow Split 7" Launch

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

It’s been a big 12 months for Good Boy. In December 2015, the three-piece’s debut single “Transparency” was added to high rotation on triple j and ended up 15th most-played song on the youth broadcaster. In January 2016, the band was announced as winners of the triple j unearthed Laneway Festival competition, opening the Brisbane Laneway main stage to a huge crowd. In March, they released their debut EP “No Love For Back Home”to a massive amount of love from critics and fans alike, playing to capacity crowds in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane on their EP launch tour. They also supported Viet Cong, Homeshake, British India, The John Steel Singers, Jonathan Boulet, Velociraptor, Palms, Northeast Party House plus more. All before the band was a year old.

Now in their second year as a band, Good Boy have already released their second EP, Plum. Recorded with Cam Smith at Incremental Records (Velociraptor, Deafcult) and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Supression Ring, Dick Diver), the new EP is a evolution on the sound of their first release. Lead single “Poverty Line” is a 3 minute 30 second exploration of what it is to be a young person living in Australia at the moment; living below the poverty line, where cost of living gets higher but wages stay the same. “Millie” is the heartbreaking story of burying a beloved family dog and “Ya Mum’s Ya Dad” is a cutting criticism of everyday life in Australia with possibly the lyric of the year; “Just wanna lead a normal life. Have a couple of kids, have a couple of wives.”

After touring with Japandroids and ending 2016 in style playing Festival Of The Sun and Falls Festival, Good Boy have no plans to slow down, releasing a split 7 inch with Melbourne wunderkind Jarrow in April featuring brand new single “Braap”. It’s gonna be one hell of a year.

“Good Boy are prepping the needle for an impromptu stick ‘ n’ poke that’ ll turn out to be your favourite tattoo. They’ re not just another band – they’ re THE FUCKING BAND.”- Ryan Saar, Soundly Sounds“

What a charming little pop song.”- Dom Alessio, Triple J

“Instant fan.”- Zan Rowe, Triple“You should get along to a show so you can say you discovered them way before everyone else.”- [V] Music

“Good Boy are hurtling towards the front of the indie-pop scene with an unmistakable uniqueness.”- Happy - 13th best song of the year for Transparency Transparency

Named for the fountain in the centre of Bendigo marking the geographic heartland of Victoria, Fountaineer embody the last 50 years of rock storytelling, from the mood and tension of post-punk to the solemn heroism of blue-collar rock'n'roll.

Sleep Decade, Tom Cooney & Jessie L. Warren

Tickets

Sleep Decade return to The Gasometer Hotel for their first live performance in more than 12 months on Wednesday April 19. Previewing songs from their long-awaited forthcoming LP 'Collapse', the band promises a night of atmospheric dream pop & distorted folk.

Joining Sleep Decade will be Brisbane singer/songwriter Tom Cooney who made his own return to the local music scene earlier this year with the sparsely beautiful song ‘Futureproof’. Taken from a forthcoming album of the same name, the song is arresting and raw - stunning in its honesty, lilting and delicate in its sound.

Jessie L. Warren will open the night’s proceedings. She is the brains behind HALFSHARK and Carry Nation and is a vocalist in projects like half/cut and Dirt Hand. Jessie writes songs about humankind (dead and alive), animal hierarchy, friendship, confusion and the ocean, where she would rather live than in Melbourne, if at all possible.

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Stargazed Projection Art + Music Festival is proud to present:

Fierce Mild / Solaris Video Launch and Residency - 18th & 25th April at The Gasometer

“It’s like Mogwai or Explosions In The Sky but with actual vocals, and if that doesn’t sound amazing to you, I don’t know what will!” - Kill Your Stereo

Solaris, the latest single by Fierce Mild, was written entirely as a response to a dream journal. The result is something that makes sense in the moment but leaves you with a feeling of not knowing entirely what happened. Continually playing with the idea of conscious and subconscious interaction, the video explores a tumultuous psyche with the inspiration of a haunting murder which took place on the Great Ocean Road.

The video as well as Fierce Mild’s performance is like being caught in a very beautiful yet very strange dream; one that is as dynamic as it surreal. The sextet bombards audiences with a continuous, cinematic psycho-thriller from start-to-finish.

Genre-wandering walls of psych, shoegaze, post-rock, and electro-acoustic dub are delivered with a folk-tinged Australian lyricism, whilst the stunning surrealist-horror projection works of live video artist Stephanie Peters are matched to beautiful dreamscapes of sound art and electric cello between songs that bind the music together into a singular cohesive narrative.

"I totally see the Gareth Liddiard comparisons! I found myself being constantly impressed and surprised from start to finish." - Veronica Milson (JJJ)

Fierce Mild are joined by a stellar lineup of local artists and VJs TBA shortly

Butterfingers 'Big Night Out' Tour with Special Guests

Tickets $25+BF.

Australia’s favourite 2 x ARIA Award nominated musical misfits are back, breaking hearts and bones (mostly their own) after a ten-year long hiatus from the recording studio. With a new found vigour and a swag of new material, Butterfingers are officially back in the saddle and continuing to bend genres and the boundaries of good taste with a rare blend of obscenity, wit and charm.

After a massive return to the stage with an at capacity The Zoo over the weekend headlining the Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Butterfingers are thrilled to announce their new single 'Big Night Out' which is set to be unleashed on the world Friday March 10th. But the good news doesn't end there...the Brisbane legends will be heading out on a whirlwind national tour making stops in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in support of the new single.

With this being a very special limited capacity tour, fans will have the chance to grab fan presale tickets via www.butterfingers.info TODAY (Tuesday 14th of February) but must be signed up to the mailing to access.

GA Presales are available from Monday 20th of February.

Butterfingers’ new single ‘Big Night Out’ is the surprisingly upbeat summer anthem that details the tragic yet true events of lead singer Evil Eddie’s night on the town that left him hidden and physically trapped in a back alley with a broken spine.

Butterfingers are back - and there is no stopping them - much more to come...

Emily Barker’s new album was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with producer Matt Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell). Sweet Kind of Blue will be released through Everyone Sang/Kartel on 19th May - it is the first full studio album Barker has released since 2013’s critically lauded Dear River and marks a new sound as she returns to the soul and blues influences that first inspired her to become a songwriter and musician. Emily Barker is the award-winning writer and performer of the theme to BBC TV crime drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh. With her former band The Red Clay Halo, she provided the atmospheric theme to noir thriller The Shadow Line. She has toured extensively all over the world, including an appearance at the Olympics opening ceremony alongside friend and collaborator Frank Turner.
