tomtom w/ DALLI & Eaglemont at The Grace Darling

Doors Open: 8:00PM

Buy Tickets: $15 on the door


Facebook Event

tomtom sweeps into Melbourne to let the proverbial cat out of the bag (he would never put a real cat in a bag unless it was a fun game for the cat) for his EP "DESIDERATA", a collection of 90s Alt-Rock Jams about love, digital consumerism and Ray Kurzweil's singularity.

Supporting tomtom on the evening is Melbourne's own Dalli with his signature blend of brooding guitar balladry and pumping electronica.

And opening the evenings proceedings is Eaglemont, delivering hooky guitar lines doubled with emotional and heartbreaking lyrics relating to her audiences through stories of love, friendship and identity.

Smoke Rings play songs of loss and sadness disguised beneath glittery guitar hooks, laconic vocals and shimmering tambourine. They return to the Grace Darling to launch brand new sparkler ‘Camcorder’, their last release for 2018.

“A commentary on mediocrity and submission to settling down”, this single applies signature hooks and pop sensibilities to dress dark content in a reverb wash of good times.

Joining them are local legends Venus Court

Karen Lee Andrews - Far From Paradise Tour.

Anthony Taylor

Karen Lee Andrews, Oceanic Blues Trio

Gritty guitar, glowing valves, lush tremolo and deep reverb in a distinctively fluid expression. This unique sound carries the
mood and tones expressed in rich, warm vocals.

“Ms Andrews has one of those authentic sounds you hear, even through the gloss of TV, you can tell she has lived and loved.” Cameron Adams, from the Herald Sun.

“She is one of the most original and dignified talents to emerge in Australian popular entertainment in a long time. She manages to be both imperial yet vulnerable “. - Paul Sheehan from Sydney Morning Herald

InfraGhosts // Sissysocks // Super Melody // Roles

Doors Open: 8:00PM

Buy Tickets: $7 On The Door


Facebook Event

Video artist, musician and cynical Melbourne trans babe pulls shapes, bends circuits, plays new-wave heavy synthpop over Hi-NRG claps and takes her audience by force - it's Laura Davis's InfraGhosts.

Oblivion/dream-pop artist Sissysocks has completed recording their third album, produced and mixed by James Cecil and mastered by David Walker, which will be released in the coming months.

After a long break from the stage that has included the recording Super Melody album number two, James Cecil will return to live performance. The Melbourne-now-Macedon based artist and producer who made his name with Architecture In Helsinki has worked with a long list of notable Melbourne artists at his Super Melody World Studios, and will again take on the lead role in the form of what someone may or may not have described as his "underrated" alias.

Roles is a Melbourne based duo who play new-age, post-punk with an iPad, 3-string electric guitar, and vocals, with a sound built around a core of synth bass, drum machine, and lyrics formed with found words. Their first 10 songs work as a collection and will eventually release as a concept album. The duo features Louise Love (formally of Louise Love) and Luis Gutiérrez.

InfraGhosts // Sissysocks // Super Melody // Roles at The Grace Darling Hotel in Collingwood, Thursday, December 13th.

Doors 8pm // Entry $7
