Wild Honey (Single Launch)

Wild Honey (Single Launch)

Saturday 23 September, 2017.

Emerging with their self-titled debut EP in 2016, Wild Honey’s first track ‘Eye To Eye’ scored solid rotation on triple j and the band hit the road nationally with supports for fellow indie darlings The Belligerents, Hinds and Twin Peaks. Rounding out the year with a performance at Lost Paradise, the band racked up a whopping sixty shows in twelve months.

Upon releasing their debut EP, single ‘Eye To Eye’ became one of the most played Australian songs of the 2016 summer on Triple J.

Cash (Single Launch)

Cash (Single Launch)

Saturday 30 September, 2017.

Rock ‘n’ Roll slayers CASH celebrate the long awaited release of their new single ‘Ashes & Bones’ live at Yah Yah’s on grand final night!
Alongside pop rockers 00, bluesy brooders Fifth Friend and dark pop songstress Droplet.

CASH is Cassie Hope on vocals and guitar and Ash Acid on drums. The Melbourne duo’s sound has been described as a pouting love-child of Chrissy Amphlett and Meg White. Sorry Jack.

CASH deliver a live set of sex, sweat and sultry rock ‘n’ roll – see you at the show!

Halcyon Drive (Single Launch)

Halcyon Drive (Single Launch)

Saturday 7 October, 2017.

Melbourne electro rockers, Halcyon Drive make a spectacular return today with intricate new single, ‘The Birds’ and a stack of East Coast dates to follow.

Layering dark electronic elements with sophisticated instrumentation and sharp production, the first taste of the trio’s debut album encapsulates their refined musical direction of the past four years. With quirky electronic toy sounds almost mimicking that of real bird sounds, ‘The Birds’ flutters around the period of trepidation that comes with a new romance. In vocalist Michael Oechsle’s own words, it’s “where two people have to learn about each other, their routines, their ways of living life.”

The Snowdroppers

The Snowdroppers

Friday 27 October, 2017.

Special Guests THE STIFFYS
You demand and The Snowdroppers deliver! After SELLING OUT their first shows the bands going back to basics playing two intimate and FINAL rock’n’roll shows. These venues are guaranteed to get real SWEATY and real LOUD so make sure you get in FAST.
2017 marks ten long years since THE SNOWDROPPERS first got in a room together to see if we could learn a handful of covers to play at a burlesque variety show… London, Pauly K, Cougar Jones and Johnny Wishbone – with no idea that it would dominate our lives for the next decade.

We’ve seen a lot of things come and go over the years- three albums and an EP, countless tours, festivals and support slots around Australia, several overseas trips, broken bones, more long drives and airport lines than you can shake a large Big Mac meal at, and have somehow managed to come out the other side sane and still kicking.

It’s this kind of milestone that tends to make a band look back with pride on all their accomplishments, thankful of all they’ve been able to experience and look towards the next ten years with renewed purpose and vigour!

…Not us though, we’re sick of it and are going to OFFICIALLY CALL IT QUITS after one last run of shows. This is it folks, we’re hanging up the suspenders, burning the banjo and putting London back in the cabinet!

To celebrate our tenth anniversary and say farewell – we’ll be playing Too Late to Pray in full and a selection of our other favourites. We’ll even be releasing a very limited number of ‘Too Late to Pray’ 12 inch vinyl.

We would love to see you all one last time – don’t miss it!

William Crighton

William Crighton

Monday 6 November, 2017.

With a somewhat mythical presence, formidable performing artist and acclaimed songwriter William Crighton will hit the road with lauded Canadian singer-songwriter Terra Lightfoot in November for the Stand on the Side of Love Tour, and it shapes up as a meetingof two like-minded souls.

Crighton will unleash new music in a live setting before he heads back to the studio to continue work on his second album.

Lightfoot has created quite a buzz in her home territory of Canada. The soulful rocker and lion-hearted singer-songwriter will now make her maiden trip to Australia, having already found a following in countries such as France and the UK.

Food Court (Album Launch)

Food Court (Album Launch)

Friday 10 November, 2017.

Currently on tour supporting Tired Lion, Sydney’s garage punk outfit Food Court today announce a headline run around the country for November. The band kicked off 2017 with performances at SxSW which landed them in DIY Magazine’s “Best Things We Saw At SxSW” list. See what all the fuss is about when Food Court hit the road in support of forthcoming album, Good Luck, slated for release on September 22nd on Dine Alone Records.

Latest single ‘I’ve Been Wrong’ taps into the lyrical themes of the album: mistakes, loss and learning and was recently added to Fbi.

Food Court’s long-awaited debut long-player Good Luck was recorded with the esteemed John Castle at the legendary Shed Studios (You Am I, Vance Joy, The Bamboos, Jack River). The 11 tracks were recorded in a week and the result is a classic debut, a scrapbook of stories delivered through melody-driven garage punk.
