Before getting into it, make sure you clear your schedule on the 29th of this month to check out our superstar girls The Oogars! They’ll be playing a support slot at Brisbane venue The Zoo for Donny Bennet. These chicks seriously know how to slay a live show so get down early! If you can’t make that but you’ve managed to snag a ticket to the epic Jungle Love Festival, they’ll be making some sweet tunes at the Amphitheatre Stage at 10:50 on the 30th, so make sure to get there and support the girls!!
Local legends PEACH FUR will be bringing their soothing, alternative sounds to Miami Shark Bar on November 17. Make sure to get down early to check out supports from Port Royal, Cactus and more!
HOLY HOLY will be ripping into Miami Marketta on the 24th. If you don’t already know the indie rock band you should wrap your ears around their new single “FACES.” Coming off a high from placing a track at no. 40 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 last year with True Lovers,’ the boys are ready to start wowing crowds again when their tour kicks off in a few days’ time.
SHAKAFEST is returning for another year, this time out at the Broadwater Parklands in Southport. Australian hip hop royalty Bliss n Eso will be headlining the music, street art and skate festival along with young guns Good Doogs, Brisbane all girl rockers VOIID and Last Dinosaurs. All promising to be playing huge sets so secure your tickets before they sell out!
KIM CHURCHILL will be playing a FREE show at Byron Bay’s iconic Beach Hotel on November 23rd. If his killer track ‘Window to the Sky” isn’t in your playlists your should definitely add it right away! While you’re at it check out “Weight_Falls,” his 2017 record with some huge tracks including “Second Hand Car.”
If you’re more into the dance music side of things then Gold Coast producer PACES will also be hitting up the Beach Hotel on the 24th, bringing his ZAG album on the road, which is sure to get you bouncing around the joint.
DONAVAN FRANKENREITER, American soft surf rock legend will be playing Byron’s The Northers Hotel on the 21st of this month. He hasn’t toured Australia for many years now so you should definitely catch him play or else you might be waiting a few more before being able to catch him again!
KIRA PERU will be bringing her funky dance tunes to The Tivoli on the 23rd. After having her latest singles “Tension” and “Molotov” getting heavy rotation on Triple J she’s been killing sets at Big Pineapple fest and Listen Out so make sure you get your groove on. Also, total legends KIND GIZZARD AND THE LIZARD WIZARD are back on the road and will be causing a lot of noise on the 29th!
Freak of nature HARTS will be shredding The Triffid to bits when he plays on the 17th. If you haven’t seen him play before it is seriously something else. Mind boggling guitar solos and riffs that make you want to jump around are only part of this insane live experience. Make sure you check out the man live in the flesh.
If you’re keen to get your freak on, then dance lord GREEN VELVET will be tearing up The Met this Saturday the 16th and international superstar STEVE AOKI will be throwing around cakes and heavy drops on the 30th.
