BASEMENT || Shroud Single Launch w/ Pseudo Mind Hive & Dowser

Doors Open: 9:30pm

Buy Tickets: $8 on the door

-

Facebook Event

SHROUD. Meat, riffs and potatoes. Does more need to be said? Probably not... For a time SHROUD was incomplete, like a three wheeled car, or a pack rollies with no papers. Lumbering on with no voice, just raw thumps and untamed feedback. Then not too long ago, for reasons only the universe understands, the final member of Shroud was drawn to her destiny.

SHROUD was born, metamorphosing from simple garden tool objects into something new, something strange, something primal - emanating a rare pulse. To rejoice in this awkward, but special transformation, SHROUD welcomes you to The Grace Darling Hotel Basement to help launch ‘Slow Demise’, the first song from their five song sacrifice to the gods.

Joining them for the night will be: PSEUDO MIND HIVE (Melbourne psych) + DOWSER (Three piece Stoner/Doom)

Castilles ‘Get Along’ Single Launch

Doors Open: 8pm

Buy Tickets: $10 On The Door

-

Facebook Event

CASTILLES comprises the cream of the crop of Melbourne’s highly competitive, inner North underground rock scene. The electric three-piece blast, fumble, and soar their way through an eclectic set of rock and roll. 'Get Along' guides the listener through an incessant pulse, begging the riff to loop eternal. An ode to blues, desert rock & psychedelica 'Get Along' is a reminder that what was never broken never needs to be fixed.

Joining them will be fellow Purple Wayne residents, COPE & DRAG. It’s alt country, it’s bluesy, it’s poppy, and we like it. Arrive early to see Nico and his bandits get down.

HOBSONS BAY COAST GUARD are a band we caught supporting a Zoe Fox and the Rocket Clocks show. We dug their vibe and have kept an eye on them ever since. We’re so stoked to have them on the ticket. #trashsurfglitzrock

It’s going to be a fine night indeed.

Lexicon (QLD), Product, Polish, Body Maintenence + More TBA

Doors Open: 5:00pm

Buy Tickets: $15 ON THE DOOR

-

Facebook Event

Lexicon are a punk band from the humid confines of sunny Brisbane, Australia. Fuelled by a hectic need to mine the depths of minimalist rock music, to create something simultaneously ugly and appealing. Hooky and abrasive. Stupid yet smart. Kinda like Brisbane itself?
Phoebe (Pleasure Symbols) up front, seething bits about isolation, disgust and personal growth. Ruby (Babaganouj) on drums, Daniel (woodboot) on bass, and Sam (woodboot, occults) on guitar.
Lexicon were once described as propulsive, and that is fair.

They're joined by PRODUCT, BODY MAINTENANCE, POLISH + MORE

The Finks launch Rolly Nice in Melbourne

Doors Open: 8pm

Buy Tickets: HERE

-

Facebook Event

THE FINKS emerge warm and blinking as a five-piece band to play a handful of shows in support of their third album, Rolly Nice. This is a rare opportunity to witness the songs live and limbed before THE FINKS slink back to wherever they came from.

Also playing will be the ineffably good NEW ESTATE and CAROLINE NO.

Written and recorded at home, Rolly Nice is THE FINKS’ sixth release through Milk! Records since they joined forces in 2012. It is an unassuming beauty, a poignant collection of instrumentals, piano sketches, and spoken and sung songs.

Presented by Milk! Records and Remote Control Records
