THE RETREAT HOTEL PRESENTS...
HEXDEBT
PINCH POINTS
June Jones

FREE ENTRY. Doors 7.30 PM
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's a Tuesday special, proudly presented by The Retreat Hotel!
We've got a 'tour de force' if you will. Three of Naarm/Melbourne's most exciting and enthralling, coming together to kill the Tuesday blues, and roll you into hump day with a smile on your dial.

HEXDEBT
If you don't know, then come find out. Hex Debt are one of our favourite bands in Australia, and for good reason. Their live show is dynamic, fiery & fierce. It'll have you moving, it'll move you, it'll stick in your mind to weeks to come. We are so so blessed to have them back on our stage.

PINCH POINTS
Of course we want Pinch Points at our venue. Find a joint in Melbourne that doesn't want Pinchies playing their pub? We're stoked to get them in before they're too big for us. They have a new album, it's banger-laden. Catch them before they take BIGSOUND by storm.

June Jones
We've got June Jones back at The Retreat, we're jumping for joy! Her set performing alongside Miss Blanks, Dianas & more in January was jaw-droppingly brilliant, and with a few more releases under her belt, we expect no different this time around.

FREE ENTRY as always. Drink specials from Coopers. Come early, stay a while, and catch the three best acts you'll see all week.

Featuring:
Astronaughty
Dogs Don’t Kiss
Tali Mahoney
+ guest DJ’s to play out the night

ASTRONAUGHTY:
From recent beginnings, four piece local Melbourne band Astronaughty have perfectly blended a mix of Parquet Courts and the more delicate side of Big Scary to create their own mellow, vibey version of indie guitar pop. With a relatively quiet first eight months, the band focused on writing, recording, and producing several high-quality tracks due to be released in the coming months. For shows Astronaughty has played since their 2018 inception, including two headline shows, audiences have witnessed first hand the dreamy landscapes, and stories frontman Michael paints with artful lyrics and gentle guitar licks.

Paris Plan w/ SXINT P + STAV

Alt-soul quartet Paris Plan are dropping their debut EP 'Love, Make it All Alright' into the world with a party for the ages at the Retreat, Brunswick.

They're joined by special guests and friends:

SXINT P (R&B, PBRNB, Hip-Hop, Trap)
Drawing inspiration from deeply personal and relatable experiences such as heartache, death, substance abuse, mental health, and more; SXINT P's music is vulnerable, hard-hitting, and real.

"I make music to help people. If I’m honest with my listeners, then hopefully they’ll appreciate that I’ve given a glimpse of what really goes on in my head and will be able to relate. Making music is therapeutic for me too - but if I can help ease other people’s pain with my songs, then I’ve accomplished my goal. If you’re still reading, I want you to know that you are not alone and I love you.”

Listen: http://www.sxintp.com

and:

Chev and Stav (nu-soul, world, art-pop)

The tantalising new duo project between STAV. and Chevaunne Keleher (Mihra, My Elephant Ride), exploring new ideas and pushing past musical limits.

BB Sabina w/ Hannah Potter & Numbat

Mparntwe (Alice Springs) based artist BB Sabina is celebrating the release of her debut EP with a national EP Launch Tour. BB Sabina collaborated with ARIA-nominated Melbourne artist Evelyn Ida Morris on mixing and fellow Alice Springs artist Resin Moon on recording the EP.

BB Sabina's debut EP explores the creative process; inspiration, struggle and release. Drawing from the likes of Angel Olsen, Melody’s Echo Chamber and PJ Harvey, the music of BB Sabina is drenched in rich guitar tones and emotional lyricism. Musical intensity marked by depth and a moody, charged sonic palette.
"Powerful and captivating debut EP" - Music Feeds
https://soundcloud.com/bb-sabina

With Special Guests Hannah Potter & Numbat
Numbat is the brainchild of Canberra born musician Manda Gleeson - a genre orgy of folk, rock, a side of punk attitude and a slice of lime to tie it all together. Born of generalised anxiety, strings of terrible decisions, unrequited crushes and strange experiences, Numbat digs through life's trials and tribulations with humour and metaphorical sobriety.
soundcloud.com/numbat-music

Hannah Potter shares a surname with a famous wizard, which is pretty suiting as she often renders whole rooms silent with her deft guitar playing and pixie-like pure heroin vocals.
Growing up, Hannah climbed over the back fences of many Melbourne music venues in order to sneak into gigs. Nowadays she goes through the front door and onto stages where she smashes out delicate, powerful tunes that detail how fucked a lot of things are (but how it’ll all be okay! Probably); always with a raw vulnerability and sincere delivery.

Brat Farrar w/ Sadults Band

Sometimes a gig comes along so seductive you just can't say no, even though its on a school night! This is that night. Best to get a note from your Mom right now to say that you aren't feeling swell.

Everyone loves Sadults, just ask anyone. Love love love. They are young and hot and beautiful.

The Brat Farrar Band play so infrequently in Melbourne its like seeing someone dressed in pink and yellow on Sydney Rd on a Friday night....its rare.

The first band will play about 8pm, that might be Sadults or Brat Farrar Band, they haven't decided. It won't go too too late, well late enough so you shouldn't book a first Tinder date after the show, but probably not too late for a second date.

The tranquil surrounds of the Retreat front bar are perfect for alcohol consumption and regrets. Please ask any/all questions in the comments.

FREE ENTRY for everyone and FREE DRINKS for the bands.

Monnone Alone + Black Springs (Sydney) + Dodda Rivka
Play the Retreat Hotel, Brunswick
Saturday, August 17 – afternoon show 2-6pm
Free entry!

Monnone Alone return from a European summer tour, having wooed audiences from Barcelona to Bjørke with songs from their second album, the harmony-drenched power-pop jangler Summer of the Mosquito.

Sydney stalwarts Black Springs have not been seen in these parts since the release of their 2017 LP When We Were Great, but are making a special surge down the Hume to showcase a new bag of songs from their forthcoming follow-up LP. Expect a wave of up-tempo garage rock and moody jangle pop, interspersed with a heavy dose of the band's trademark wig outs to boot. Don't miss out on this rare sighting!

Dodda Rivka is a brand new act centred around Langley born songwriter Becky Salomons who spent most of her teens in Ballarat painting ghouls and hanging on msn before moving to Melbourne to study media arts. In the years since graduating her attention shifted to studying guitar and songwriting at home. The result is a youtube channel filled with songs from her first soon to be released EP. Songs about connection, human potential, dying, celebrities, letting go, loneliness and so on.

It's August. Winter is nearing its end. Your footy team are probably out of contention for this year, so you're hoping they lose so you can get better draft picks. And if you've got kids, you just want to take them to the park for a run around, but instead, they're telling you they're hungry, watching Bluey on repeat or pushing book cases onto each other.

Well Digger & The Pussycats are pleased to invite you down to The Retreat Hotel for a day out where you can drink almost too much and watch us play. Or sit outside and talk to your mates.

You'll get two sets of our worst songs. It's free entry. There's a bar and a kitchen.

1. West-coast born musician LYNDON BLUE makes weird pop songs in the back room, and is surrounded live by friends such as Nathalie Pavlovic (Dianas, Elizabeth); Jack Burton (Analog Attic, Deep Water Records) and Daniel Twomey (Lower Plenty, Deaf Wish, Luxury). For fans of Antipodean post-punk, '80s art-pop and homespun disco.

2. The digitally elusive MIO is a conduit for the songwriting of Lisa Miosku, captured in pristine lo-fi and embellished on stage by interweaving guitar hypnotics. Recalling the hazy introspection of Jessica Pratt, the bedroom-pop daydreams of Loving, and the less-is-more sensibility of Young Marble Giants, Mio are surely one of Melbourne’s most precious subterranean gems.
