Power

w/ Fruit & Nut, Repairs
Doors 7pm
Free Entry
Power is an apt name for a band that performs high voltage rock the way it was played 40 years ago. Springing from the Cool Death label -who are releasing the best punk and hardcore in Australia- the Melbourne three piece delve into a murky and loud world where hard rock and boogie is mixed with punk, metal and psych. These guys can be found plotting their next move in a basement with walls adorned with Black Flag, Stooges and Hawkwind posters and a floor littered with Bavaria cans and lyric sheets that reference pagan ritual.

Winter Moon
Friday 5 June

Winter Moon

w/ Two Headed Dog, Super Saloon, Dear Thieves
Doors 7pm - $13 Entry
From humble beginnings as an acoustic duo, to the rolling thunder rock revue they now command, Winter Moon have marked their progress to date as anything but ordinary. Summoning the gods of rock n’ roll with comparisons to Led Zeppelin and Blues Pills, then tempering it with the pop flourishes of The Black Keys and Fleetwood Mac, the band’s psychedelic blues rock squall is a force majeure.
