Hughster’s August Gig Guide

Friday 10th August: Break the Ice Fest – UTS Glasshouse Bar – $28.10 + bf

A fantastic line-up of local talent will appear at the University of Technology for the first ever Break the Ice Tour (which will also stop at other Uni’s around the country). Joining headliners Bluejuice will be the likes of Deep Sea Arcade, The Preachers and Hungry Kids of Hungary.

 Saturday 11th August: Kill City Creeps – The Vanguard – $11.80

With influences ranging from 60s psychedelia to 70s glam-rock, Sydney’s Kill City Creeps are a thrill to behold. Lead singer Daniel Darling is ably supported by Knives, Mon Cherie and Nina B, combining to create a truly unique sound.

Saturday 11th August: Twerps – Goodgod Small Club – $14

If Kill City Creeps don’t sound like your cup of tea, perhaps Melbourne’s the Twerps are. After a huge American tour, they’re back in Australia to promote new material. Their US trip saw them stand-out at SXSW before supporting the incredible Real Estate on their national tour.

Friday 17th August: Jinja Safari/Opossom/White Arrows – Metro Theatre – $38.90

The Metro welcomes an incredibly diverse line-up, with local popsters Jinja Safari being joined by Opossom (NZ) and White Arrows (USA). The truly innovative and original International acts especially should not be missed for any reason.

Wednesday 22nd August: The Pharcyde – Upstairs Beresford – $47 + bf

Hip-Hop pioneers the Pharcyde are returning to Australia after their last visit three years ago. An alternative to early-90s gangsta rap, their music was (and is) as challenging as it is fun.

Wednesday 29th August: SURES – Beach Road Hotel – Free

Rain&Hale favourites SURES continue to sweep all before them. Having supported a number of prominent acts in recent times, they’re quickly becoming a heralded group on their own. See them for free alongside equally talented Battleships, as Beach Road comes up with the goods once again.

Hughster’s June Gig Guide

Thursday 7th June: Winter People – Oxford Art Factory – $12 + bf

After the cancellations of the Playground Weekender and Secret Garden Festivals, fans will finally get a chance to see Winter People live. They have a run of East Coast tour dates in support of the release of their debut EP “Gallons”.

Thursday 14th June: Oliver Tank – Oxford Art Factory – $12+ bf

 Currently completing a tour of the UK including a stop at the Great Escape Festival, this will be Oliver Tank’s home-coming. After last year’s incredible “Dreams” EP won him rave reviews, he’s completed new music recently in anticipation of his next EP.

Friday 15th June: Founds/Fire!Santa Rosa, Fire! – The Standard – $12 + bf

Two of the best unsigned bands floating around at the moment, they’re teaming up to show off their considerable talents. Both bands are slightly left of centre in their music and performance, so this should be a considerably special occasion.

Thursday 21st June: Select Music’s 7th Birthday – Various – $20

Rain&Hale favourites Toucan will be joining an all-star cast to celebrate Select Music’s 7th Birthday. The likes of Bluejuice, Ball Park Music, the Preachers, the John Steel Singers and Hungry Kids of Hungry will be lending their talents during the evening – to be held at four Darlinghurst/Surry Hills venues. Huge.

Friday 22nd June: Deep Sea Arcade – Beach Road Hotel – Free

 Listing the Beatles and Doors as some of their influences, you can get a feel of what Deep Sea Arcade’s music is like. Their debut album “Outlands” was Triple J’s feature album back in April, so we’re obviously not the only ones in love with their psychedelic-pop stylings.

Saturday 23rd June: Mosman Alder – FBi Social (King’s X Hotel) – $10

 Brisbane’s Mosman Alder will be playing at this year’s Splendour in the Grass Festival, but you can catch them for a fraction of the cost a month earlier. Their East Coast tour is in line with the release of their debut EP “Burn Bright”, a gorgeous piece of brooding exquisiteness.
