Ayleen O 'Good As Gold' Launch with Georgia State Line

Ayleen O and her band launch the new single ’Good As Gold’ on Wednesday 17th October, upstairs at the Gasometer in Collingwood, followed by a national tour and festival appearances throughout November and December, supporting veteran folk rockers, Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission.

Melbourne singer-songwriter, Ayleen O'Hanlon has been steadily building a name within Australia and abroad as a captivating live performer and a considered writer, with a distinctive voice that ropes you in and pulls you under. Having recently joined local indie label, Blind Date Records, ‘Good as Gold,’ is the the first offering from O’Hanlon since her debut in 2015. Recorded in a backyard studio in Melbourne and featuring Dave Folley on drums, Craig Kelly on bass and producer, Michael Hubbard, on guitar (Eagle & The Worm, Sean McMahon & The Moon Men, Ben Mastwyk), the new release signals an exciting departure into a new, fuller sound for O'Hanlon as she draws on a set of altogether contemporary influences.

Joining the line up will be local country sweethearts, Georgia State Line. Honest, agile, and refreshingly self-assured, Georgia State Line’s unique brand of country-infused melancholy yields music that’s equal parts heartsick and hopeful. Fronted by lauded songwriter Georgia Delves, the Melbourne, Australia-based band melds both vintage and contemporary sounds to craft songs steeped in Tennessee sunsets and the scent of softened leather. Delves’ voice is effortlessly colourful, lyrical and textural with a depth and grace to rival even the most revered of talents.

Lewis Coleman with Braille Face & Emma Ovenden

Tickets $10. Doors 8.00 PM

Last August, Lewis (The Cactus Channel, Frida, Plastic) played one of his first solo shows at The Gasometer with his expanded band project. It was really enjoyable, so it’s happening again, with some more fantastic supports; Braille Face and Emma Ovenden, some live visuals, and perhaps a vino or two. It’s going to be… whatever you think it’s going to be.

With psychedelic, electronic, orchestral, and lo-fi influences, Lewis’ DIY approach combines the instruments in his room with some strings and woodwind he couldn’t play, to make some sense of it all, finding mental strength, confidence and self worth, and growing a voice to express it.

The Final Curtain by Jordana Halperin with Habits, Dark Water & More

What it means to be man. Evil may have created it, left its mark on it, but evil does not rule it.

As recently shown in the Melbourne Fashion Week Emerging Designer Runway 2018, Jordana Halperin’s RMIT fashion honours collection Some Unholy War walks once more as part of her graduate showcase The Final Curtain.

Transforming the beloved Gasometer into our contemporary Globe Theatre, all gender identities command the stage. Adorned with Andrea Simmons handcrafted jewels, this collection examines the division between body and self. Working through rituals and sacrifice of body modification techniques, Jordana explores the human experience, with garments used as a form of self-expression. Aiming to unfold the question: How can the conceptualization of material as a second skin communicate the meanings and values of identity?

In partnership with Arouze Management, and aw-inspiring team of soulful collaborators, we’re incredibly proud to bring this performative runway-screening to life after four sleepless years and solemn hallucinations. Forging a family reunion that will make the Addams weep.

Accompanied by an array of musicians from our darkest dreams, including Romy Fox, Dark Water, and Habits this line-up will haunt for eternity.

IHC 1NFINITY is proud to present our newest single release via Caroline Records: Chela - 'Shut You Up' featuring Banoffee. SYU is the latest alt pop jam from the always whimsical, Chela. The track, featuring duelling and harmonic vocals provided by Banoffee, a fellow Australian and genre-bending pop star in her own right, is as catchy as the thump beneath them. Chela shows off her songwriting and production range in a track that stands out from the rest of her catalog, yet sounds so authentically her. Rife with politically relevant lyrics (about momentarily disconnecting from technology) and her first rap, we are proud to kick off the next wave of 1NFINITY music with this track.

Catch Chela and Banoffee perform at the launch show for 'Shut You Up' at The Gasometer Hotel - Upstairs with support from fellow-Melbournians SAATSUMA on October 24th.

Wharves Single Launch with Teenage Dads & More (UPSTAIRS)

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

WHARVES waltz right back into the spotlight with new single ‘Mo’s Desert Clubhouse’, a jaunty belter with ferocious guitars and spooky vocals. The second single off their debut EP ‘Sooner or Later’, which is due out Friday 5th October, WHARVES’ latest offering found its charm with creative input from producer and mixer Steven Schram (San Cisco, Tiny Little Houses). The track follows the release of ‘High School Hero’, the EP’s first single and all-round mover and shaker. The band’s lead singer, Matt Collins, describes the organic process of the song and how “The music for this track came from our Sapphire Sessions in March 2018. We stayed in a beautiful house near the beach in Coffs Harbour and jammed for 3 days straight. We pretty much wrote the music there and then”. Collins also explains that “The lyrics were inspired by a roadtrip I took in May with the part owner of the Gold Coast arts venue "Mo's Desert Clubhouse". She was explaining her frustrations with the local Council pretty much bullying them into closing. I can't stand how narrow-minded people in power can be, the arts are one of the most important things in life, without art, life isn't worth living. It is not a crime to dance"

A little bit about the artists for those who don’t know....

Luke Yeoward If there was an embodiment of Jesse Katsopolis from Full House this would be the man. Having played in some of Australia’s (King Cannons, 131’s, Luke Yeoward and the half way and New Zealands finest rock/punk/ska/regeea and now a prominent solo career. More details facebook.com/lukeyeowardmusic

The Diecasts - The DieCasts are a Rock trio though being said it is hard to place a finger on any certain genre, The DieCasts have a sound best described as Rock with many Influences, ranging from punk to jazz and rockabilly to country.

Catchy hooks, amazing vocal harmonies and awesome songs to mix it all in, definitely an artist to watch.

Forming in 2011, the band have already played support to heavyweight local acts Rival Fire, Calling All Cars, 28 Days, Trial Kennedy, Red Ink, Dallas Crane, Kiss Chasy, The Living End. Plus many shows on their own and supporting others in the live music scene in Melbourne making them a band to watch for sure. Check them out at facebook.com/thediecasts

Mark with a C A secret act playing their first and from what we are told sadly last show. It’s all about love, surprises, music and the future. Is it any wonder Montague Industries booked this act.

Stacey Gray Experience There many words in the English language but Humble, Legendary, Modest and Genuine are the main words you could ever need to describe this guitarist who hides in the background and lets his guitar speak volumes. His guitar work has been part of Australian music scene for the best part of 3 decades. This will be a set not to be missed by any fans that Stacey Gray has made from previous endeavours.

The Cherry Dolls 'Black & Blue' Launch with Port Royal (qld), Girl Germs, Nathan Wong, Aubry Wodonga the DJ, Frankee Hollywood

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

Doused in malevolent riffs reminiscent of The Stooges, the cocksure self-assuredness of The Strokes, Melbourne based The Cherry Dolls are psyched to hit the road for an East Coast Tour in support of the release of their new film clip for Black & Blue,

Following the rapturous reception of their 2017 debut album Viva Los Dolls, The Cherry Dolls are making waves nationally with an ever-increasing fanbase built from the ground up with the bands relentless dedication to touring and their DIY or DIE attitude, packing out sweat-soaked venues all over the country and strutting their stuff with everyone from The Delta Riggs, British India and Spiderbait, to DZ Deathrays.

Boasting cataclysmic rhythms and thunderous riffs wild enough to send tremors through the very bedrock of Iggy Pop and Josh Homme’s souls. ‘Black & Blue’ twists and winds its way through a dark night of a soul steeped in mystery, love and pain, while flexing and pulsing with a primal frustration and piercing guitars.

The swooping, skin-shedding swagger of ‘Black & Blue’ was recorded and produced with Alex Markwell (Delta Riggs, Pretty Littles) at The Aviary, mixed by Michael Badger (King Gizzard) and film clip directed by George Arnold at Scramble Studios.

Be sure to catch The Dolls on the road before they settling in to record album #2!

The Ian's Single Launch with Forever Renter, Lemon Daze & Black Snake Whip (MATINEE)

The Ians are a modern grunge band best experienced live. Taking their inspirations from the best of the 90s, the bands’ sharp hooks and thrashing guitars, The Ians play their music like only a band who’ve done the hard yards can play. Following the success of their 2017 EP ‘Elephant Fresh’, the boys have been working hard and have created what is their latest single ‘Gold Teeth’ and are eager to share it again, and again. Recorded with Greg Rietwyk (Press Club) at The Aviary in Melbourne, signals the start of a new era for the band both musically and visually and what better place to experience it than at The Gaso? With tix starting at $8, it’d be a shame to miss it.

Accompanying the boys last Melbourne show before embarking on their tour across the East Coast will be sad-girl/boy post-punk, indie-rock 3 piece Forever Renter who will be serving up dynamic tracks about heartbreak and the inevitable end of the world.

Melbourne based 4-piece indie rock band Lemon Daze will also be adding to the day with their psych/punk influences. Currently in the process of recording debut EP after a successful year playing regular shows across Melbourne and making their mark on the local music scene. Alongside them will be new kids on the scene Black Snake Whip, a funk, punk, progressive, high octane four piece from the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Only having been in existence for a few months the group have been hard at work writing songs with mixed bag of flavours which tends revolve around a high energy progressive rock sound. They like to play loud and loose and throw in changes of style that catch the audience off guard.

FINDING FIGARO 2ND BIRTHDAY WITH Christopher Port (Live) & MORE

Two years is a long time in showbiz baby and we have a hankering to spill some pints, sink some gins and celebrate in fine fashion. To do so we’ve brought along some of our nearest and dearest to help us cut the cake for two glorious years of Figaro’ing.

Our headline homie is @Christopher Port. Garage inspired productions split between d-floor melters and tear-jerking dreamers, its music with the capacity to make you both dance and cry. Having just released the second part of his two-part EP operation, Everything in Quotes “LIGHT” / “DARK” Porty is full of ammunition and will bring his full live set to our birthday. We can’t bloody wait to unwrap it.

Maxwell S is very much a part of the furniture at the Gaso. One of the dudes behind the decks for Daydreams, Max is well-versed in setting dance floors at his local alight. His unpredictable are part of the reason the Daydreams parties are widely loved in Melbourne. We know what we like, and this we like.

Colette is one our long-time conspirator’s and, as we all know, the key to a good birthday is surrounding yourselves with your fellow partners in crime. Probably the nicest DJ on the circuit, she’s also one of our favourite selectors. We’ve given up on making predictions, only a big smile and a mixed bag.

A country boy with a heart of gold Barry Sunset is a box office selector from B-rat. The wildcard birthday party attendee who when they get their hands on the AUX things get a bit silly, with a full mixing kit things will get downright outrageous.

Birthday parties are also for our friends. In Asha and Louise Kaye (stage name pending, reward of a free pint for finding her a name is still very much open) we’ll have two pal’s dropping heat together. With a poster slot at City Loop for Asha and gigs popping up all around the city for Louise, these two make the perfect mixture to kick things off for our second birthday.

It wouldn’t be a birthday bash without our House of Friends comrades. Bona fide purveyors of a good time the HoF boys are both literally and figuratively our big brothers. Three hot selectors we simply could not do without on our special night.

Hexfest: HEXDEBT + friends take over The Gaso

HEXDEBT would like to acknowledge that this event, as well as the creation of our music, takes place on stolen Indigenous land. We pay our respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the custodians of the land on which we work. Sovereignty was never ceded and treaties have not been signed.

Everyone’s favourite night EVER (to be) is taking over The Gaso this Cup Day Eve and our favourite artists are putting on the show for you with us!

HEXDEBT care about a few things in particular: one of them is that the spaces we inhabit feel safe and welcoming and that the artists performing alongside us help to create this. Another thing we care about is recognising our marginalised audiences and ensuring they come away from our shows feeling encouraged and empowered. We also care that the music is good.

HEXFEST is how we envision the music scene: HEXFEST asks you to leave colonial, binary and backward thinking at the door (or in the bin).

Hoodlum Shouts and Cat Heaven with special guests Half/Cut and Shop Talk

Hoodlum Shouts and Cat Heaven with special gusts, half/cut and Shop Talk.

Ten years together and three albums on Melbourne label, Poison City Records, Hoodlum Shouts are performing a rare string of shows along the Hume, starting in Melbourne at The Gasometer. Since the release of Heat Island, they have toured sporadically, collecting a tribe of admirers along the way. Hoodlums have a knack for commanding a room, whether it through their stark vocals delivered with staggering intensity or the jagged, unnerving instrumentation that accompanies them remains unclear but they are truly a band's band. An act that musicians gravitate towards and punters revere.

Sydney’s Cat Heaven, comprising members of Mere Women, No Art, Hira Hira and Nice Guys and having just released their angular and intoxicating debut ‘Living Room’ produced by Jay Whalley of Frenzal Rhomb (yes that’s right), are back in Melbourne after touring the album earlier in the year. Living Room captures the magical gloom of domestic experience through their energetic post punk, flipping between calm and despair like a faulty light switch.

They will be supported by Melbourne locals half/cut and Shop Talk

Lime Cordiale - 'Dirt Cheap' Launch with Special Guests

Sydney brothers Lime Cordiale announce their latest string of 20 live dates across metro and regional Australia, including a 3-date stint in their return to New Zealand.

The tour dates are locked, though Louis has dropped hints about new material, “This tour has got me so excited but I’m trying not daydream about it! We’re trying to finish a few tracks in the studio to release before any of it kicks off”.

Lime Cordiale’s debut album “Permanent Vacation” in 2017 topped the AIR Australian Independent Albums Charts, climbed to #15 on ARIA Australian Album Charts and sent them to The States, smashing out shows at SXSW before returning to play Groovin’ The Moo in Canberra.

With a clear taste for playing big stages, Oli & Louis went on to create their very own East Coast Touring Festival, The Squeeze in May 2018 hosting old mates Bootleg Rascal, Aaron Gocs and a refreshing sample of emerging Australian acts.

Even if they tried, the duo just can’t stop getting on stage “We don’t like being home for too long, so we’re adding as many rural and coastal stops as we can. Tours are holidays for us, really. We like to hang around until we’re on a first name basis with the old blokes at your local.” – Oli Leimbach

CREO 'In The Red' EP Launch with Special Guests

After exploding onto the radar of international tastemakers with their acclaimed 2017 debut EP 'X, Y, Z’ and stamping themselves as one of Australia’s most promising upcoming bands on the live circuit, Sydney-based indie rock quartet CREO aren’t showing any signs of slowing down. Kicking off the year with a performance at Australia’s summer blockbuster Falls Festival, the band have only catapulted themselves to further heights in 2018, inking a management deal with Bear Parts Music ahead of the release of their sophomore EP, ‘In The Red’, which has already been snapped up by Kobalt for digital distribution. The band’s fresh collection of urgent, guitar-fuelled indie rock hymns is slated to arrive later this year, hot on the heels of its globally-frothed predecessor. Lauded by Rolling Stone Australia as “a battle scene primarily directed by the instrumentation, with the partnership of dream-pop escapism and equally optimistic vocal quips”, CREO’s 2017 'X, Y, Z’ EP was also embraced locally by key tastemakers triple j, FBi, 3RRR, RTR, 4ZZZ, not to mention international hypesters Indie Obsessive (USA), The Daily Listening (USA) and The Revue (CAN).

Its release saw the band traverse the countryside selling out headline shows and supporting the likes of Nothing But Thieves (UK), Minus the Bear (USA), British India, Last Dinosaurs, Tired Lion, Polish Club and Bad//Dreems. Charismatic frontman Jorjee Haman’s poetic vocal melodies intertwine with Carlos Romanos’s delicate yet brazen guitars and a thumping rhythm section provided by Daniel Tsoltoudis (drums) and Alex Milano (bass) to power CREO’s singular sound.

And while they are, at their core, an ‘indie rock’ band, CREO’s musical depth, fire and subtle sonic intricacies are what set them apart from the standard indie fare. Noted as having “the emotional power of dynamics that belies their years” (The Music, Sydney), “devious hooks, malicious guitar tones, and some of the most fearsome drums this side of indie music” (Casual Band Blogger), CREO’s meticulousness in the studio -- and brashness when not -- prove to be an unlikely match made in heaven, for a band who truly are a must-see. Stay tuned for further announcements on the release of CREO’s 2018 EP, ‘In The Red’, coming soon!

Edward R. 'Body Corporate' Launch with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $

Body Corporate, the new EP from 27-year-old Melbourne musician and producer Edward R. (real name Geoffrey Roberts) is a 5-song opus of intricate, immersive, psychedelic pop that recalls Ariel Pink and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Written after a period of uncertainty and emotional turmoil, the EP explores love, heartache and connection through the story of a man from the past who is transported into the future, who is looking for love.

Over the five tracks, Edward explores these themes through 60s chamber-pop hooks, dreamy guitar riffs and elegant, lush production, that harkens to the past but feels firmly planted in the present. Body Corporate is Edward R. proving himself to be one of the most interesting and versatile new voices in Australian indie-pop. Born and raised on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Geoffrey has been playing music since he picked up an old, battered SG copy at fourteen, and wrote a little melody on the instrument’s only string. “Since then”, he says, “it’s all been self discovery and intuition.” Growing up with musically adept friends, and moving to London with band HUNTING, has provided to be formative experiences for his main solo project, Edward R..

Body Corporate is the follow up to Geoffrey’s much-loved debut EP Agrabah in 2016. The EP featured the track 'Wolves And The Water’ which has been streamed over four million times, and earned Geoffrey a coveted Triple J Unearthed feature. After the release of Agrabah, Geoffrey found himself at a crossroads, unsure of what he wanted the Edward R. project to be, but knowing that he wanted to create music that allowed him to play around with different genres, and not be pigeonholed as an artist. During this period, he moved back to the Sunshine Coast and started working on music that would eventually become Body Corporate. Without knowing it, Geoffrey had created a conceptual project. “I realised there was a common vein between all 5 songs - this theme of ‘someone from the past finding love in the future’... after connecting the dots; the name Body Corporate kept rolling around my head” he says. The EP was recorded between the Sunshine Coast and Melbourne, with Geoffrey producing and playing most of the instruments that appear on the record. Drums on the EP are played by Isaac Leong Loon, with engineering and additional production by Elliot Heinrich. While conceptual, Geoffrey says that the EP also hits close to home. When recording the EP he says he would regularly “lean towards the existential thought that that this [EP] is an extension of how I personally feel: Out of place, in the wrong time, but forever longing to be accepted and loved.” Catch Edward R. and his dreamy new live band on the Body Corporate Tour this November!

Shaun Kirk with Special Guests (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $15+BF/$20 on the door. Doors 7.30 PM

Following the release of ‘Howlin at the Moon’ earlier this year, Melbourne’s very own blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk is delighted to announce a month long string of tour dates across Australia to celebrate the release of his brand new single ‘Save My Soul’.

Co-produced with Nick Huggins (Jen Cloher, Fraser A Gorman, Mick Turner) ‘Save My Soul’ is a heavy groover that Kirk says was initially inspired by a character he spotted walking forlorn along the shoulder of a cold, dark Hume Highway late one night whilst driving home from a run of shows up north. The quick sighting leading Kirk to the opening line of the song - “kicking stones along the highway”. From there his imagination took over.

Kirk’s world class live show is taking audiences by storm with his recent ‘Howlin at the Moon’ tour selling out some 10 shows across Australia & New Zealand and also saw him billed for the fourth time in his career at the world famous Bluesfest, Byron Bay. Tickets to the ‘Save My Soul’ tour are limited and expected to sell quickly. Get in early at www.shaunkirk.com

JEFFE 'Undecided' Launch with Special Guests

“Undecided”, the second single from JEFFE doesn’t so much play as shudder. Where her dreamy debut ‘Whoever You Love’ ascended gently from the depths, ‘Undecided’ is its flickering, moody sister, caught between spilling onto the dancefloor and shutting away in a bedroom. “Where’s my heart at?” sings JEFFE, sounding caught in a mall, nervous and neon-tinged world. Again co-written with producer Dave Hammer (Thundamentals/Megan Washington), the darker, propulsive ‘Undecided’ announces JEFFE (pronounced “Jeff”) as a curious new talent. Having grown up playing piano, sax, guitar and singing, JEFFE has taken time fleshing out her artistic vision. But it wasn’t until a chance meeting with Hammer in 2016 that the pair unlocked the organic electronic direction she was craving. In early 2017, JEFFE was born.

With only a handful of tracks in the public domain, JEFFE has already made an impact. A spare cover of French artist Petit Biscuit’s ‘Problems’ led to the internationally celebrated young producer including it on a remix package released on his French label Believe. JEFFE has also performed at Rare Finds, Mountain Sounds, Secret Garden Festival, Groovin the Moo, and supported like-minded souls in Lanks, Alex The Astronaut and Stella Donnelly.

thando 'Happy' Launch with Special Guests

Zimbabwean born, Melbourne based soul singer Thando has released a sleek new visual accompaniment to her latest single 'Happy'. Which premiered via COMPLEX this week.

The writing process for 'Happy' was a way for Thando to assume the identity of her anxiety, to give it a voice and better understand it. The video directed by Tim Brade of Tall Boy Media sees the artist stand defiant, staring down the lens, powerful and foreboding. A compelling visual for those who know the fickle and crippling nature of mental illness. Giving context to the song and the video, Thando explains "It's a letter to my conscious self from the perspective of my anxiety. My often forgotten villain sneaks up on me when I'm feeling my most content and consequentially risks relationships and opportunities for happiness. I personified and gave her a voice, so that I may attempt to better understand her and learn how to keep her at bay."

2018 has seen Thando complete a metamorphosis. Kicking off the year by releasing a powerhouse collaboration with REMI, resulting in frank single 'NUMB'. A track which saw her reflect on her own identity as a woman of colour in Australia and her feelings of ostracism by the current political climate. The single garnered big love from triple j, Double J, national community radio and saw her tour nationally.

Fresh off the stage from BIGSOUND, Thando has won fans hearts nationwide through her mesmeric live performances. Securing coveted support slots with Odette on her recent sold out 12 date Australian tour, Leon Bridges on his Bluesfest sideshow, Sampa The Great, REMI and having wooed festival crowds at Strawberry Fields and her annual hometown, historically sold out Chapel off Chapel performances.

The touring continues, with a host of dates announced today throughout November and December. Tickets and details below. 'Happy' and its accompanying video are OUT NOW.

Polish Club 'Get Some Clarity' Launch with Heaps Good Friends & Sweater Curse

'Clarity' is the first taste of the Sydney drums-guitar duo's second album, currently under construction at The Grove Studios near Gosford. From glam-slamming guitar riffs to one of the most insane drum fills of all time, it's a soul-funk party starter with a dark undertow that won't, ever, leave you alone.

"It's still basically just me on drums and Novak on guitar and vocals," drummer John-Henry says, "but we've found ourselves writing music with more layers, more parts. We're spending a lot more time thinking about songs and about recording. It's definitely a different process to the last album."

Lyrically, Clarity is a plea from the churning vortex of modern existence that heralds a slightly more serious phase in the songwriters' headspace.

"It's a mental scene rather than a specific one," says fuel-injected singer/ guitarist Novak. "It's about the struggle of communication; not being able or eloquent or ballsy enough to say what you're thinking; being at the end of your tether with confusion, wanting to be clear with yourself and others."

This is an 18+ event.

Monnone Alone 'Cut Knuckle' single launch with guests Cool Sounds and Way Dynamic The Gasometer Upstairs Saturday, October 13 8pm $10 entry

'Cut Knuckle' b/w 'Difficult Boy' 7" vinyl single available on the night!

Although the name may suggest otherwise, Monnone Alone are a bona fide pop group based around the sagacious songwriting of Mark Monnone (ex-Lucksmiths) and featuring members of A-grade pop tinkerers Architecture in Helsinki, Mid-State Orange and Aleks & the Ramps. That’s almost as bona fide as it gets.

Recorded by Melbourne-based UK producer Gareth Parton (Foals, The Go! Team), ‘Cut Knuckle’ is the first single taken form Monnone Alone’s second album Summer of the Mosquito, due out sometime in 2019.

The unparalleled awesomeness of Cool Sounds and Way Dynamic will provide ample support on the occasion of this event.

This 7" single launch is taking place on stolen property. We would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people who are the Traditional Custodians of this Land. We would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present of the Kulin Nation and extend that respect to other Indigenous Australians.

Lip Sync Chicks and Davey Craddock - Double Record Launch with Special Guest Sledgehammer (UPSTAIRS)

Lip Sync Chicks and Davey Craddock - Double Record Launch with Special Guest Sledgehammer (UPSTAIRS)

Why launch one record when you can launch two? This was the hard-to-argue-with logic facing Perth folk rock artist Davey Craddock and Melbourne new wave guitar slingers Lip Sync Chicks who have decided to join forces and both launch shiny vinyl discs upstairs at the Gasometer on Friday October 12. They’ll be ably supported, musically and spiritually, by Sledgehammer and DJ Tess Monaghan.

Lip Sync Chicks present Looking For A Victim, the first single to be lifted from their debut LP, due in 2019. Looking For A Victim is a pulsating dose of new wave guitar music, a midnight hooligan burnout through suburban paranoia, taking aim at false fears and colliding with truths far scarier. As Triple J’s Dave Ruby Howe so aptly described “you'd almost swear that Johnny Marr was doing session guitar work and Martin Hannett was behind the boards”. The limited 7" release is backed with "Bring That Boy Back," a melancholic torch song in honour of Friday nights spent in. Both selections were recorded and mixed by Robert Muinos (Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins) in Melbourne, 2017-2018. Lip Sync Chicks formed in December 2016 to play a reduced, stylish brand of guitar music, bringing back snappy intros, songs structured like 1960s 45rpm singles, and tight arrangements. The result is an idiosyncratic take on '70s LA punk rock with a sliver of Northern England drama.

Davey is touring his second album One Punch nationally with his full band of WA musical luminaries Davey write albums - how twee. These carefully-wrought collections of interlocking songs and characters have seen him consistently lauded by important people who are into that kind of thing. Rhythms Magazine have called One Punch “superb”, Paul Gough of Radio National fame called it “one of the absolute rippers of 2018” while Stuart Coupe, 2SER presenter and former manger of Paul Kelly, has declared it “astonishingly impressive”. Earlier this year, Davey and his band shared the stage with Augie March for two double album launch shows at North Fremantle pleasure palace Mojo’s Bar. His national tour includes stops at boutique festival delights Dashville Skyline and Out On The Weekend as well as intimate songwriter haunts right up and down the eastern seaboard. While his debut album City West saw Davey chronicle a boom town growing too fast and busting at the seams, One Punch is a more global record. Boofheaded masculinity, war mongering and surreal world events are all picked apart on songs that swing from dystopian Bad Seedsy rumbles (The Bomb From Broome) to classic jangly Australian pop (Holiday).

Preales $12 from oztixcom.au or $15 on the door. support from Sledgehammer and DJ Tess Managhan

You'd almost swear that Johnny Marr was doing session guitar work and Martin Hannett was behind the boards.

Narla with Dead Eyes & Merpire

Narla coming down to Melbourne! Supported by Merpire and Smoke Rings.

Having spent the last couple of years roaming up and down the East Coast, slaying crowds, conquering venues and bagging a cult-like following with their brand of prog/psych, NARLA’s reputation as being one of the best live bands in AUS is definitely justified.

With their anticipated debut LP to be released in 2019, strong moves are set for the band. Recorded at Sound Recordings Studio, Castlemaine; a legendary 100% all analogue studio, their high octane live performance was captured on tape with the band maintaining a 1-2 take rule per song. The record was produced by the band, engineered by Alex Bennett (C.W. Stoneking, Ballpark Music, Tesse) and mastered by Joseph Carra (King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Courtney Barnett, Eddie Current Suppression Ring).

“Possibly the most highly regarded shredders within the Sydney scene, this three piece delve into prog and blues with a tightness that is rare.” - Life Without Andy

BIRDFEST with Bakers Eddy, Porpoise Spit, Rya Park, The Rollercanes & More

Tickets $12.20+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 4.00 PM

After an eight month break, Melbourne’s loveable indie punkers ‘Birdhouse’ have made a huge return into the scene with their second annual minifest ‘BIRDFEST #2’ taking place on Saturday October 6th and the famous Gasometer!

Birdhouse have teamed up with Arcade Fire’s fundraising organisation ‘PLUS1’ along with queer and trans rights organisation ‘Minus 18’ and the music industry’s favourite brewing company ‘Young Henry’s’, all of whom will work alongside each other in delivering a fun, safe and inclusive event with $1 per ticket going towards Minus 18. With such a killer lineup and a great cause, you’d be crazy not to get amongst it!

“We’ve made a conscious effort to have a diverse lineup in regards to gender and sexual preference. It’s a area in which all of us in the music industry need to be more aware of.”

“Seeing a close loved-one currently going through some difficult times as a queer trans person has really opened my eyes, I thought the least we could do is show our support while sharing the stage with some of Melbourne’s most exciting artists!”

Birdhouse will headline the show, following the likes of Bakers Eddy, Porpoise Spit, Rya Park, The Rollercanes, Go Get Mum, Tamara and The Dreams, Poison Peril and special guest DJ sets from The Cherry Dolls and Batz!

Get down early for only $15 with a 4pm kick off!

BIRDFEST has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket will go to Minus18, a national organisation for LGBTIQ youth, smashing homophobia, biphobia and transphobia through events, resources and workshops.

On Fri Oct 5, CLOSET returns to the Gaso - and this time we're gonna bring out the poppers before they get banned!

This month, our poster boy is Freddie Mercury himself - in homage to the much anticipated biopic of Queen Bohemian Rhapsody coming out next month.

WHERE: The Gasometer Hotel, 484 Smith Street Collingwood

WHEN: Fri 5 Oct 5 2018

DOORS OPEN: 9pm till 3am

LINEUP: Nick Spurway (SYD), Simonetti, Renee Delay + more TBA.

PRESALES: Limited presales from $10 + bf for Early Birds and $15 + bf. Door entry will be available.

PUT OUT YOUR POPPERS: Join us in protesting the proposed ban of amyl by the Therapeutic Goods Administration. The TGA are proposing to list poppers as a Schedule 9 drug alongside heroin! Poppers have long been used by the LGBTIQ community recreationally in our bedrooms, on our dancefloors and for cleaning our video heads and leatherware. If you believe, as we do, that poppers are harmless and prohibition is stupid, we'd encourage you to bring out your poppers at CLOSET, and make your voice heard. Sign the petition: https://www.change.org/p/therapeutic-goods-administration-tga-don-t-ban-poppers Make a submission by Oct 11: https://bit.ly/2QQcUAq

FUNDRAISING: This month, CLOSET will be donating part of our proceeds from ticket sales to the Melbourne Period Project who provide sanitary and hygiene products to the homeless - including women, non binary and trans people. Last month, thanks to all of you, CLOSET raised over $500 for the Australian Lesbian & Gay Archives and for rainbow giving circle The Channel.

POSTER BOY: Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury has long been the unofficial mascot for CLOSET. He has graced our poster many times, but this time we asked artist Matto Lucas to bring him to life. Freddie was born in 1946 and died in 1991 from complications of AIDS. Today, Freddie would be 72 years old. On November 1, Bohemian Rhapsody - the long-awaited biopic of Queen - is slated for Australian theatrical release.

POSTER COMMISSIONS: If you are an Australian artist or designer who would like to design one of our posters, reach out to us via DM.
