Dan Vogl with Hey Mammoth *SOLD OUT* (UPSTAIRS)

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

Dan Vogl is an indie/folk artist born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. Originally a self-taught singer/songwriter, Dan spent his early career recording and touring in various musical projects. Seeking to develop his art at a higher level, he sourced mentoring from experienced professionals like Ainslie Wills, Darren Middleton (Powderfinger), Ella Hooper (Killing Heidi), Jen Cloher and Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy) to expand on his songwriting and performance skills.

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

Dan’s live show is a ball of energy and sing-alongs. Both solo and with his band he has performed headline shows at The Northcote Social Club, The Oxford Art Factory and The Workers Club as well as opening The Hills Are Alive festival. Dan is also the recipient of the ‘The Push’ Music Industry Pathways Mentoring Program for 2017.

Kill Devil Hills with Timothy Nielson & Leah Senior

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

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

Reuben Stone has started the year off with a huge leap to the big time opening for UB40 on their national summer tour. That’s just the beginning of the story, his background as a street performer has built him a solid, well polished live show that will see him smash support slots for Tash Sultana and his own headline shows throughout the country. Reuben Stone has defined his sound drawing influences from various acoustic and electronic semblances. A multi instrumentalist defiantly layering guitar, bass, trombone, beat boxing, and a synthesizer in loop sections to create entire songs on the fly. A landscape of soulful undertones tightly packed with chunky beats, fused with ambient vocals and dub delays; Reuben’s prospects for the future are vast with a colossal eye for collaborating amongst Australia’s top touring acts and spreading to large-scale festivals, already crossing of the list, festivals such as Burning Man, Shambhala, Singapore Grand Prix, Queenscliff Festival.

Teeth & Tongue Greatest Hurts Show with Loose Tooth, Gregor & Venetian Blinds DJs *SOLD OUT*

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

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

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

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

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

Dan Brodie Album Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

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

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

Dan Brodie is an acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Davey emerges from his Headley Garage studio after months of solitary nocturnal pottering with crippling phengophobia, but on the plus side, a brand new LP.

He's also bringing along his new favourite guitar pop outfit, The Girlatones, who have just released a cracking new single, ‘You're My Friend’ ahead of their upcoming LP.

It’s a sound system special this month at Jamaica Jump Up, and that means the Gasometer Hotel is going to be shaking to the vibrations of a heavy hi fi system built by local dub specialist Adrian Hough.

Adrians Wall brings a heavyweight vibe each and every time they set up their giant speakers, and Jamaica Jump Up will be no exception!

Stepping up behind the wheel of this powerful bass boom box will be PBS 106.7FM’s own Mohair Slim (Blue Juice Radio Show), Rick Howe (Riddim Yard), Jesse Hype I (Babylon Burning radio show) and Lloyd Briggs (Deeep Space) as well as Miss Fee and the master creator himself, Adrian Hough!

Also dropping in on the night to toast this low frequency party will be the great Pat Powell (SYD), from The Melbourne Ska Orchestra.

ASRC Winter Benefit Bash with Rocket Science, RVG, Hi-Tec Emotions, Magnets + More

Tickets $18+BF/$20 on the door. Doors at 7.00 PM

CELEBRATE THE DEPTHS OF WINTER WITH A ROCK N ROLL BENEFIT EXTRAVAGANZA!!

Some of the biggest rock stars in melbourne are taking the stage mid-winter to raise money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre #KeepThemSafe campaign. The acts of the night will be:

+++ Rocket Science +++

+++ RVG +++

+++ Hi-Tec Emotions +++

+++ Magnets +++

+++ DJ Richie Twelfiftee +++

+++ Dj Lady Shakes +++

  • More to come!

The #KeepThemSafe campaign raises much-needed funds for the hundreds of people seeking asylum this winter. The Turnbull government has cruelly given over 1100 asylum seekers until October 1st to complete a complex 60-page refugee application in english only. With limited legal aids and translators to to help assist those in need, the ASRC are taking donations to help raise funds that will:

  1. Fund a dedicated Para-legal Coordinator to support a new emergency Sunday legal clinics for people seeking asylum who have less than 14 days to apply, or be at risk of losing their right to work, Medicare and income support.

  2. Pay the mandatory $35 fee for all refugee applications for up to 850 people who can’t afford this.

  3. Cover the cost of training and supporting over 100 new legal volunteers required to respond to this crisis and assist more people seeking asylum quickly.

  4. Pay for onsite interpreters for when we work with survivors of torture, and who need face-to-face interpreters to feel safe in order to disclose their story so we can prepare their application.

  5. Pay for translators to translate critical legal documents that are vital to proving people’s refugee claim, and give them the best chance of winning their case.

The link to the ASRC campaign is as follows: https://www.asrc.org.au/keepthemsafe/

We will also be taking food and goods donations and will provide a list here soon as to what is most in need, AND we will have stalls and other cool things to donate your money to on the evening (there is rumour of a kissing booth ... XXX)

Please give kindly this winter, stay safe and warm and we hope to see you for the PARTY! ♥

ReChords New Double A Side 7” Record Launch w/ Special Guests Bon Ton Rhythms

Tickets $10+BF/$13 on the door. Doors 6.00 PM

Rechords Singles Collection Launch.

This is it folks......the results of our blood, sweat & tears over the last 9 months. We've been keeping a relatively low key, simply working on new recordings to release and share with our fans. We've formed a great working relationship with David M. Turner Esq., Producer & Engineer at Los Bomberos Studio in Northcote, Victoria. With the assistance of Dave and the amazing writing talents of both Felix and Leo, the band have created 10 studio tracks so far (with more in the works) which we have decided to release as a 'Collection' of double sided Limited Edition 7 inch Vinyl singles. These will be released over the next 12 months, with the intention to release two new tracks at a time every 2 to 3 months.

The first two tracks hot off the production line are 'MOCKINGBIRD' and 'SEEING THINGS' which some might be familiar with from some of our recent live shows in the past. Well now you can take them home with you, both on Vinyl format as well as being available in the usual Digital Download option. Remember folks, these Vinyls will be limited to just a run of 200, so come along and get in quick if you want one!

We're putting together a big 'ol bash at one of Melbourne's most unique venues, the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood with it's optional 'opening roof' band room. We've been wanting an excuse to put on a show there and this is the perfect opportunity and we'll be inviting a Special Guest act for each Release show so save the date!!!

Smooch Into Spring with Divide & Dissolve, JDFR, Peak Twins, Smile, Sleep D & More. Tickets $15+BF EARLY BIRD. Doors 5.00 PM

Divide & Dissolve are a Texas-Geelong duo based in Melbourne have one solid ambition; to abolish white supremacy with their heavy, bone-crushing doom. JDFR is the Björk-approved solo endeavour of Iceland's Jófríður Ákadóttir. Minimalist soundscapes paired with Jófríður's voice, which has a strength that’s made to seem fragile with its vibrato, like a solid pane of glass vibrating just enough not to shatter.

PEAK TWINS. Suave soul hunk rockers. Their first live show in almost 4 years. Rebecca Sui Zhen, fresh back from the Sydney Opera House. Japanese lovers rock, 80s electro-bossanova and dubby-lounge pop. Melbourne's own Ela Stiles. Unsettling, gothic dance-pop anthems. Kandere is Wahe Kavara and Lakyn Tarai. Avant-garde liquidised trap.

SMILE's first live performance of 2017. The band that no-one asked for. Greta Now, from Sydney and she sounds bored, but only because she's more interesting than everyone else. Great Outdoors, fresh off their new LP Fake News, an album rich with mystery and surprise, and while it addresses modernity it does so with a diversity of sound and tone that offers a slice of magic track to track. It’s one of the best Australian releases of 2017 (4ZZZ). Hemm, kooky electronic pop. Sleep D, the axis of the Australian electronic subterranean, and Sanpo Disco. Disco escapism and rose-tinted balearic smooth rock.

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.

Tumbleweed with HITS & Grindhouse

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

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.

Wet Lips 'Album Launch' with Terrible Truths, Pillow Pro & DJ Emoceans

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

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

Textural instrumentation led by whacked out violin, a blend of real and synthetic driving rhythms, electric guitar, bass, and anonymous noises of distortion and unease.

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

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

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

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

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

SIME NUGENT WITH JOSHUA COOK (USA) Sime Nugent is no stranger to songwriting. Sime has toured nationally and internationally throughout Australia, Europe and America and released more than a dozen albums with a range of bands in his 20-year career.

Sime’s work under his own name; with indie folk duo Sweet Jean and bluegrass party band The Wilson Pickers has received both critical and popular acclaim. Sime Nugent travels now with an extensive repertoire as a soloist, band leader and band member.

Joining Sime is Joshua Cook, American troubadour and devout sound crafter of rock & roll, hard R&B, deep soul, and blues.

Hailing from San Francisco, Cook joined Soft White Sixties, for several US tours, including prominent spots at SXSW, Noise Pop, High Sierra and CMJ Festivals. Cook broke off to formalise his own band, The Key Of Now, who have just released a new full-length record,

Cook is currently on an epic solo tour that takes him around the globe and brings him to Australia this July.

“He’s an artist to the core, a creator and conveyer of passion, grace, humility. An animated and authentic storyteller. A wanderer with an eye for California and an ear for rock and roll. His vitality simmers in conversation as it is when he’s on stage, owning a sound he calls & rock ‘n’ roll, deep soul, hard R&B.” – The Bay Bridged

LEAPS & BOUNDS MUSIC FESTIVAL PRESENTS: FEE B SQUARED’S CLASS OF 2018: featuring: Loose Tooth, Shrimpwitch and Hi-Tec Emotions

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.

Picket Palace Single Launch w/ Swamp, Foggy Notion

Tickets $5 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

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

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

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors at 7.30 PM

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

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

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

#STREAKERGATE with The Rockdogs Supergroup, Fierce Mild, Shiva & The Hazards, China Beach + more

Tickets $15+BF. Doors at 7.00 PM

Streaking is a part of Australian life. Names like Helen D'Amico, that bloke who star jumped nude at England vs Australia in 1975, and that serial pest who did that impressive nude run at State Of origin a few years back go down in Australian legend. At the 2017 Community Cup, the annual tradition of streakers during the game was greeted with rapturous applause by all … except Victoria Police. The #streakergate 4 face huge fines and potential criminal records for doing nothing except show us their finest birthday suits.

On Wednesday July 12th we’re standing in solidarity and getting behind our nude friends by throwing them a party featuring:

Sugar Teeth, Moody Beaches, Plyers, WHITE VANS, Closet Straights, The Only Boys, China Beach, Shiva and the Hazards, Fierce Mild, DJ Callum Padgham and DJ Mermaid and THE Rockdogs 2017 Supergroup!!!

With MCS Kbs LoveRevolution, Ezekiel Ox and Nevena Spirovska and buttloads of surprises!!

Tickets are on sale from oztix and doors are at 7pm.

Skyscraper Stan July Residency with Angie McMahon, Cahill Kelly (Willow Darling) (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 7:30 PM

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

11th – Angie McMahon + Cahill Kelly (Willow Darling)

18th – Sean McMahon + Maja

25th – Brooke Russell + Monni Sparrow

See you at the bar. Xox

No Way! Okay, Fine Book Launch!

FREE ENTRY. Doors 4.00 PM

"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.

Grenfell Tower Relief Fundraiser w/ JNETT, RAMBL, Kovac + More (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors at 3.00 PM

All proceeds to The Harrow Youth Club, West London.

Feat. JNETT, RAMBL, KOVAC, DANZEY, RAAGHE, MICKEY EDWARDS + more TBA

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

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

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

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

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