Ocean Grove punks GONZO will launch their new cassette at the Grace on June 28. Joining them on the night will be Bananagun, a brand new band to come out of the surf-coast-garage-rock-psychadelia-generally-rad tradition of sick bands. And local muso Tali will be returning to Wednesday nights at the Grace cause we couldn’t get enough of her captivating, idiosyncratic pop songs and luscious aquamarine Fender Mustang.

Bench Press “Single Launch”

Doors Open: 8:30PM

Facebook Event

Bench Press are just about ready to fly off the handle what with everything going on in the world not to mention those bills, the Boss and the niggling inclination that if they'd just stayed at home they wouldn't be stuck behind this damned slow-walker! Vocals lurch from statements of matter of fact to inflamed vitreol and impassioned cries in competition with barrages of abrasive guitar and driving rhythms that toy with dissonance while determinedly keeping one foot in the world of danceable beats and succinct pop structures.

Bench Press will be joined by Moody Beaches and LOOBS

“A work that certifies how brilliant they are still when it comes to manufacturing bubblegum spirit power pop: between the Archies and Fountains of Wayne, passing through The Nazz or the more punk pop Ramones, their themes invite fun and to stick some good dance moves. Fahrenheit 77 Spain

Eleven songs full of energy and guitar vitality accompanied by some brilliant melodies.

Mellow-pop three piece Stonefox (Melbourne) and dream-folk outfit The Winter Gypsy (Adelaide) are teaming up to bring their equally lush and driving sounds to the national stage this June/July.

The pair are hitting the road in 2017 in support of new single releases, and whilst being no stranger to the stage, have previously opening for the likes of Mosquito Coast, Tash Sultana and Timberwolf to name a few.

With more than 4 million Spotify plays to their name, Stonefox have captured attention for their ability to combine reverb drenched guitars, emotional honesty and soothing vocal work that has been compared to London Grammar and The XX.

While The Winter Gypsy whose signature sound is reminiscent of Bon Iver and The Middle East, embrace a stunning dichotomy of both ethereal vocal work and raw guitar licks in a dynamic live show that shouldn’t be missed.

Facebook Event

For the first time since going on hiatus in 2012, The People are returning to the live music scene of Melbourne to launch their new EP ""Cactus Atacama"". In 2016, keyboardist and back up vocalist of The People, Andreas Florez passed away after a brave battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Andreas was an upcoming musician who had just released a solo EP during his bouts of chemotherapy, in which he did not let cancer get in the way of his musical ambitions. The Florez family have since begun raising money to create a perpetual scholarship at RMIT university for upcoming music students to study abroad, a passion of Andreas'.

$250,000 needs to be raised to create this scholarship in honour of Andreas Florez and The People have reformed in order to help raise these funds. The EP launch will therefore be a fundraising event for this scholarship fund, with 100% of the profits from CD sales and door sales being donated to the fund. The event will see support from Miff as well as an intimate set by Andreas’ older brother Alejandro Florez. So come on down for a great Sunday afternoon session, and help raise some money for this great cause!

Heartbreaker alt-country duo, Miles and Simone weave their lonesome seaside lullabies and ballads with restraint - two sublime voices, gentle melodies, poetic lyrics and hilarious banter. The duet release first single, She and I, off upcoming EP produced by acclaimed producer, Dan Luscombe (The Drones, Courtney Barnett) who has drawn out the darkness from the pair's sweet and mournful love ballads. With Pete Luscombe (Paul Kelly) driving the rhythm train on an old snare drum, Dan working his magic on a slide guitar and Jules Pascoe (Jazz Party) bringing up the bottom end on his upright double pass, the outcome is a hollering freight train of a song, screamin' down the line towards The Heartbreak Hotel. The duo will also be joined by Liam Linley
