Hideous Sun Demon: psych-punk rockers all the way from sunny Perth, have recently launched their third album “Fame, Erotic, Dream” and are currently touring the new album through the country, including through Canberra this Thursday. Here is the lead single, “Antithesis.” Go check out their show at The Basement this Thursday night, as they take to the stage along with CBR’s own psychedelic wonders HYG as well as Babe Fiasco.

The winner of the 2018 Toyota Star Maker prize – one of the country’s most coveted awards – is coming to town in Brad Cox, all the way from Jindabyne, who will be playing with Blake O’Connor and Jack Rayne at Transit Bar on Friday from 7:30 pm. Meanwhile, Tired Minds will be stopping in at the Phoenix to launch a new LP, with help from Snakepit, Fatalist, Masochist and Fight Milk, from 8 pm.

There’s plenty happening on Saturday, including a huge line-up at the Old Canberra Inn which includes Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers, Agency Dub Collective and An Inconvenient Groove, all part of Fossil Free Fest which is raising funds for Frontline Action on Coal and #StopAdani Canberra. Slagatha Christie will be launching a new single, “Lionel”, at the Phoenix, and over at Smith’s, alt-blues Wollongong band Dane Overton & The Joy Williams Band will be playing with like-minded, hooksy locals The Barren Spinsters, from 9:30 pm.
