The Sunday Assembly: Raised By Eagles + Sean McMahon and the MoonMen

Free Entry

Raised By Eagles are fast establishing themselves at the forefront of Melbourne’s alternative country scene, consistently charming audiences with their impressive blend of country, pop, folk and rock. Finding inspiration in artists ranging from Neil Finn to Bonnie Prince Billy, Wilco to Whiskeytown and Jerry Jeff Walker, these are songs that remain unaffected by the smoke and mirrors of music in the post- modern era, and encapsulate the art of storytelling at its’ heartfelt finest. Their debut LP was nominated at The Age Music Victoria Awards for ‘Best Country Album’ 2013 and has continued to receive rave reviews across the country. You can check out this band on the rise at the Gasometer Hotel, Sunday 13 July 2014 with special guests TBA. Showtime 4:30pm

“Raised By Eagles’ songs are the kind you fall in love with at the first listen and then endlessly trawl bars and venues across Melbourne to be near again. This is no crush. This is a great, enduring romance” - LIZ STRINGER


Sean McMahon is an accomplished singer ,songwriter who has recorded four albums to date, two with alt country band Downhills Home, a solo/various artists concept album 'Welcome to Gippsland' and most recently the dusty, sombre, folky 'Live At The Last Hotel' with Western Union. The MoonMen sees him shift gears again with an all electrified three piece. Reunited with Downhills Home co-founder Michael Hubbard on bass and with Ben Sullivan on drums the trio deliver killer songs with a ton of grit, twang and 'Faces' swagger. Catch Sean McMahon and the MoonMen when they support Raised By Eagles at the Gasometer on Sunday July 13
