Hughster’s gig guide

Tuesday 20th:Stranger than Paradise – Flinders Hotel – Free

Ambient live music is in abundance at Darlinghurst’s Flinders Hotel, with Wintercoats and James Domeyko bringing your ears some tuneage. Make sure to shoot down a pickleback or five for a Tuesday night bonanza!

Wednesday 21st:Leader Cheetah – Beach Road Hotel Bondi – Free

Adelaide’s Leader Cheetah will be bringing their alternative country ruminations to Bondi Beach on Wednesday. Their recently released LP “Lotus Skies” has put them in the spotlight and big things are expected of the four lads after recent tours with Gomez and the Middle East. If you needed more convincing to drag yourself out on a school night, they’re being joined by psychedelic folk outfit Belles Will Ring. It’s free too.

Saturday 24th:The Gate @ Pablo’s – Pablo & Rusty’s Ryde – $12+bf presale

Who said there was no music culture in the suburbs? The Gate has put together another stellar line-up of experimental musicians, headlined by Sydney beat-maker Guerre. Albatross, Rainbow Chan, Option Command combined with DJ sets from Marcus Whale (of Collarbones fame), Lexy Savvides and Loopsnake complete the all-star cast.

For the diary:

Wednesday 7thDecember: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Oxford Arts Factory – $28.70

This Portland based, New Zealand founded band will be gracing our shores for the first time at the end of the year. They combine break-beats with muffled 70s pop/psychedelia to give them a completely original sound. This will be one of the gigs of the summer, guaranteed.
