27th October 2013 – Super Raelene Bros (Music)
Swooping out of the Northern Territory Super Raelene Bros bring their brash and joyous big-beat sound to kick you out onto the dancefloor. Street melody soars over strippeddown backbeats dueling with sawn-off violins and big acoustic guitars. Social-political realities sunk into sweet harmony and gorgeous tunes that just make you want to dance!
28th October 2013 – Ben Carr Trio (Music)
The Ben Carr trio are three guys emerging from the depths of inner Melbourne, playing their tunes, and developing new material. Featuring Ben Carr on tenor saxophone, Tom Lee on double bass and drummer Phil Collings, the easiest way to describe the band is to say they are of the Modern/Contemporary Jazz ilk. Listeners can expect compositional
platforms that merge seamlessly into improvisations, with diversity in complexity; rhythm games of superimposed odd meters, ABCD form, free form, swing feels and grooves.
29th & 30th October 2013 – Charlie Parr (Music)
$25 (+ b/f) pre-sale & $28 at the door // 9.00pm
Described by The Sunday Mail as “the hottest new folk and country blues artist of the year” Minnesota’s Charlie Parr is one of the most authentic American blues artists produced in recent times. With sparks flying off his National resonator, 12-string guitar and banjo Parr’s spellbinding finger picking and slide techniques place him among the worlds foremost string-benders. His lovingly executed East Coast Blues style comes across as authentic, organic and honed from a deep-rooted love of the music, which has
invited collaborations from the likes of Mimi Parker & Alan Sparhawk from indie darlings Low and progressive bluegrass outfit Trampled By Turtles.
1st November 2013 – hearts.beat.mind (Music)
$10 // 7.30pm
Acoustic pop duo heart.beats.mind. have spent the last year writing songs. As Elle May and Jordan Millar’s two voices intertwine over their pop hooks, listeners should prepare to be drawn into their world and experience their playful and harmony soaked tunes.
2nd November 2013 – My Sauce Good (Music)
$15 // 7.30pm
My Sauce Good (MSG) are a hot guitar, drums and vocal driven Sydney group that play a
cool mix of alternative world-music, bouncy bohemian-rock and soulfully jazzy torch-song-noir ballads. Singer Laura Brozky brings an international flavour to the group with a compelling cabaret presence and beautiful voice, with songs in French, Spanish and English. Co-founding
guitarist/songwriter Dirk Kruithof and Brozky work with kick ass musicians to create a sound that is warm and familiar without being retro. They play songs and sounds from around the world, rather than dreary world-fusion-muzak.
5th November 2013 – The Foghorn Stringband (Music)
$15 // 7.30pm
Foghorn Stringband is the shining gold standard for American stringband music, with seven albums, thousands of shows, over a decade of touring under their belts, and two entirely new generations of old-time musicians following their lead. From their origins in Portland, Oregon’s underground roots music scene, the core duo of Foghorn Stringband, Caleb Klauder and Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind have spread the old-time stringband gospel all over the world. Vintage country and honky-tonk became a staple of Foghorn Stringband thanks to Klauder’s intense passion for the music, and frequent visits to Louisiana have inspired the group to bring Cajun songs into the repertoire.
