Monnone Alone w/ Black Springs (Syd) + Dodda Rivka



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.
