Ben Ely (Regurgitator) Album Launch

Doors Open: 8:30PM

Buy Tickets: Buy Pre-sales HERE

-

Facebook Event

Ben Ely is generally known for his work with the band REGURGITATOR and other various projects, though over the last few years has spent a large amount of time writing and recording solo works.

After spending 16 years living in the southern capital cities Ben relocated back to his home town of Brisbane at the start of 2016. Driving around the city visiting certain locations of the inner city brought back recollections & feelings of events that took place in his youth. Flashbacks of stage diving for the first time at St Pauls Tavern in Spring Hill... his first girl friend getting possessed by the Devil out at Capalaba... getting into car chases with violent bouncers in Red Hill... and many other bizarre events that now seem like an entire life time away.

These stories make their way subconciously into his new songs that compose what is his new album STRANGE TALES OF DRUGS & LOST LOVE. Ben will be performing these new songs from this album as well as a few from his last solo album GOODBYE MACHINE... and even the odd REGURGITATOR songs as he treks around playing some solo shows over Sept & Oct.

Buckle in and prepare to be transported back in time to the 90's inner city of Brisbane for some STRANGE TALES OF DRUGS & LOST LOVE.

Ely will be joined by Steve Tyssen from King of the North and Kelly Day from Broads.
Album is out SEPT 15.

Davey Lane (You Am I) Album Launch

Doors Open: 8:30PM

Buy Tickets: Buy Pre-sales HERE

Facebook Event

Davey Lane has been honing his craft for quite a while now – working in the studio and on stage with artists such as Crowded House, Jimmy Barnes, Robyn Hitchcock, Masters’ Apprentices, The Saints as well as legendary Australian rock group You Am I, with whom he has been standing stage right on lead guitar since 1999. The culmination of his apprenticeship sees Davey emerge, after months of solitary nocturnal pottering in his Headley Garage studio, with his second full length LP, I'm Gonna Burn Out Bright. Davey will launch the album at The Grace Darling, Friday, October 13.

I’m Gonna Burn Out Bright’s melancholy lyrical themes of mortality and one's place in the universe are framed in joyous, brash space-pop melodies, forming a veritable collection of long-lost radio hits of eras current and bygone.

Featuring the symphonic pop of first single Taurus All Apart, the grandiose pastoral folk of This Is Hell (as featured in ABC TV’s upcoming medical drama Pulse), and the XTC-meets-Kate Bush synth-pop of My Apple Lady Cried, I'm Gonna Burn Out Bright - whilst mainly a solo album in the very sense of the word - also features guests from members of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Saskwatch, Dorsal Fins and GL and Laura Jean. The record is Davey’s bold love letter to great pop music through the ages, making something concurrently universal and completely his own.
