RAYZA
After a 6 month break with Bryce touring overseas we are pleased to bring RAYZA back in 2019. When they were most active in 2017 they were a great staple in live music in Melbourne and produced two delicious LPs.


CITY ROSE
We are proud to help bring Sydney's post punk band CITY ROSE to Melbourne for their first shows here. They have risen up in 2018 and good ears have told me they are one of the current best live acts in the Sydney underground. Coming off three SELL OUT shows supporting UK punks IDLES City Rose are a must watch.
For lovers of SWANS, The Birthday Party, Horace Bones.

COLD / HEAT
Also hailing from Sydney we'd like to introduce synth-punk three piece COLD / HEAT who will be touring with City Rose. They have two very interesting sounding EPs and I'm sure will produce a great live performance.
For lovers of Bitumen.

DISCO JUNK
Jack first saw Disco Junk play with The Nugs at the Old Bar. This 16 year old solo project packs a massive punch of energy. I'm positive we will be hearing A LOT of Billy over the next few years so come down on Tuesday so you can say you saw him before he gets massive.
For lovers of Anti Fade Records.

DECEPTIVE BENDS
DECEPTIVE BENDS are a two piece psych rock outfit from Wollongong. They have played with the likes of The Cherry Dolls, Wharves and our favourites Scab Baby. Please help us welcome them to Melbourne for their first show down here!
For lovers of Led Zeppelin, The War on Drugs

JUNGLE BREED (ACOUSTIC)
JUNGLE BREED have featured in each of our Hottest 100s and played the first show. We really love their dreamy rock and alternating vocals which progresses into more faster, drum heavy tracks throughout their sets. Super excited to see what they bring to the gig as an acoustic set.
For lovers of Courtney Barnett, ECSR.

FLY DROP (FIRST SHOW)
Fly Drop refused to provide a bio and says come at 8:30 when they are finished. We are proud to give our best friend her live debut.
