Saturday 1st September: The Laurels – Annandale Hotel – $13.30 + bf
One of the best Sydney bands going around at the moment, the Laurels are setting off on a tour of the country in celebration of their new album, “Plains”. Their grungy sound will suit the renowned rock-venue the Annandale Hotel to a tee.
Wednesday 5th September: YesYou – Beach Road Hotel – Free
Celebrated as one of the Triple J Next Crop Artists last year, Brisbane production duo YesYou have been busy writing and producing for the likes of Jinja Safari and DZ Deathrays. They’ve also been finishing off their own debut EP, which will include the current single “Frivolous Life”.
Wednesday 12th September: The Medics – Spectrum – $15 + bf
Hailing from North-Queensland, the Medics’ debut album Foundations has been one of the highlights of the year, having won a swag of awards at the recent National Indigenous Music Awards.
Wednesday 12th September: Twerps – Beach Road Hotel – Free
I included Twerps in last month’s gig guide, and in case you missed them (like me!), they’re in Sydney again this month. And this time, it’s free – no excuses dudes.
Thursday 20th September: Pond – The Metro – $22
For those who weren’t aware, the guys from Tame Impala play in another band, Pond, and funnily enough, they’re just as good! More of a psych-rock vibe to their music, they’re an experience to watch.
