Welcome all to The RiotACT Gig Guide for the 19th to the 25th of July!

Julia Johnson (pictured) – formerly of the Deep Sea Sirens – will be releasing her new single ‘Melissa’ (the 2XX Track of the Week last week) at Smith’s Alternative this Saturday with Bonniesongs and Evan Buckley. Legendary Australian punk band X will be celebrating 40 years since their humble beginnings at Transit Bar, as part of their X-Citations tour. They are not the only classic Australian bands to be visiting, with the Hoodoo Gurus and You Am I both playing their long-awaited show at the Canberra Theatre on Friday from 8 pm. Have a look out as well for the Midwinter Folk Festival this Sunday at the Old Canberra Inn, featuring some incredible folk acts including Guyy & The Fox and Betty Slim, as well as some performance poets thrown in the mix. There is a lot going on at the Basement this weekend too, with The Wumpaz, A Breach of Silence, ’68 and something called the Folk Metal Night on Saturday, which sounds like the sort of genre combination Canberra’s been waiting for!

There’s plenty on, so put on a coat or two and check out some of these cracking gigs this weekend!
