Hughster’s September Gig Guide

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.

Wednesday 6th October: Triple J Unearthed Launch Party – Metro Theatre – Free

Triple J is launching a brand new radio station, Unearthed. To help mark this most bodacious occasion, they’re throwing a party for their listeners. Unearthed will be a station that promotes local unsigned and independent talent, and the Sydney launch party will feature a number of bands already “found” by the Unearthed programme – New Navy, Nantes and Rufus w/ Elizabeth Rose

Thursday 7th October: Sealion – Annandale Hotel – $10

Sealion are a band to watch out for. Not too dissimilar in sound to bands like Foals and Bloc Party, Sealion feature weighty percussion, delicious vocal melodies and a poppy, upbeat vibe. To help them launch their new single they’ve invited along their pals, Sleepyhands, We are Volcanoes and Them Dreamers.

Friday 8th September: Slow Down Honey – Upstairs at the Beresford – Free

Slow Down Honey are one of those bands who seem to have been around for a while without really taking off. This may be remedied with the upcoming release of their new EP, “In the Red”. The four lads from Central Coast are bound to get your weekend started perfectly with their summary pop music. The line-up also includes the Ruminaters (sounds like old, not-shit Kings of Leon) and exciting pop duo Toucan.

For the diary:

Friday 21st October: Jonathan Boulet – The Standard – $15.10

Music magician Jonathan Boulet will be gracing Sydney’s newest music venue, the Standard, with his presence in a few short weeks. Aside from his work alongside a plethora of bands (including Parades, Little Scout and Sleepyhands), Jonathan is currently putting the finishing touches on his second solo LP, scheduled for release early next year. Expect to hear a bunch of new tracks from the busiest man in music.
