The RiotACT Gig Guide (21-27 June)

Nathan Gubler 12 February 2018

Welcome to the Gig Guide for the 21st to the 27th of June! There are a few big shows in here, including power-metal extraordinaire Dragonforce playing at The Basement on Thursday with Immorium, one of Canberra’s best death metal bands. On the same night Mere Women will be having an album launch at Transit Bar with one of my favourite local bands (Wives) and a band with one of the best names ever (Little Lunch).

It’s a big weekend for Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers (pictured), which (if you haven’t heard of them by now) you can catch at two shows, on Thursday at Lobrow Gallery & Bar and on Saturday at Transit Bar. The latter show is part of She-Riff (which we have covered in a previous piece), which showcases women in Canberra’s music scene, and what better way to do so than with the Jean Teasers, Ayla and Okinawa Girls.

LocalNLive’s Tuesday host, DJ Loz, has highlighted for many weeks now another Saturday show at Lobrow, with Canberra legends Hoodlum Shouts returning to the nation’s capital with a wicked support line-up of Agency, Marlon Bando and Petre Out. I’ll be keen to see La Bastard play at the Polish Club this Friday with Hot Wings and Space Party – tune in on Thursday afternoon to LocalNLive as I talk to them about their new album!
