Grey Whistle Test w/ Moon Cup + David Western


In the front bar at Brunswick’s iconic Retreat Hotel, we have three eclectic, up and coming local acts gracing the stage later this month.

Melbourne’s Grey Whistle Test released their debut EP in September 2018. Their indefinable style is touching and evocative and their live set never voids from experimentation nor ambience. Even more poignant and ambitious, they’re second EP is only a matter of weeks away.

David Western's bashful and winsome sensibility has fooled many. An explorer of personal space, soaring downcast rock and dimly-lit folk tunes, he's an old soul that writes with purpose - observing the norm and turning things inside out.

Performing unheard songs years in the making, that sound one way and make you feel another, a provoked curiosity and lasting fascination is undeniable.

MOON CUP is the new solo project of Rita Khayat (Spiral Perm). Armed with driving bass lines and accompanied by hypnotic drums, it's post punk that's larger than the sum of it's parts. Smouldering but tender, MOON CUP is quickly becoming a fixture of the Melbourne scene and definitely one to watch.

This is a unique line-up and it might be the first and only time you ever see it. Join us for an evening of up and coming talent.
