PIKELET After having been a little shy of playing gigs in Melbourne for a while, and spending the last six months playing all around Europe, New Zealand and Sydney, Pikelet is returning to a Melbo show to bask in the warmth of home-crowd good vibes.
Pikelet will be showcasing some new material that's currently being recorded, as well as some tunes from 2016 release TRONC. https://chaptermusic.bandcamp.com/album/tronc
They have selected two of their favourite bands in Melbourne to play:
THE SHABBAB The inimitable and untameable energy of The Shabbab has been a source of inspiration for many since they started many years ago. With politically conscious lyrics set against frenetic beats/guitar/keys and the most exciting front-person in Melbourne they never fail at stirring even the most cool of crowds into action. https://theshabbab.bandcamp.com/
CYANIDE THORNTON Cyanide Thornton are relatively new as a group, though you will recognise members of the band from various other excellent music acts that you no doubt also heart. Cyanide Thornton are the kind of band that rip your heart out and then massage it back to health again, all alongside incredibly adept musical ideas to keep the brain-cogs ticking. Sure to be your next fave if you're not already completely obsessed. https://soundcloud.com/user-541335156
This show takes place on stolen Wurrundjeri land. We would like to pay respects to elders past and present and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.
