Brisbane’s awesome BIGSOUND Conference is basically a live music marathon. You need to pace yourself. Wear good shoes, drink lots of water, get plenty of sleep, eat sensibly and don’t party too hard the night before. Right? WRONG! Deathproof PR have marshalled an all-time line-up for Tuesday September 6th, hosted at local institution CROWBAR. Free entry for all. Party on!
Playing LIVE on this debaucherous evening of cold beverages and loud noises is the cream of the BIGSOUND crop (if you ask us, anyways…). The beers will be a-flowin’ thanks to Melbourne Bitter and Bulimba Gold Top.
Melbourne heartbreakers CERES write the kind of infectious and anthemic tunes that will give you instantly nostalgic chest pangs. Sophomore album ‘Drag It Down On You’ is out via Cooking Vinyl on September 2, and we’re honestly calling it one of the albums of the year. Charming and imminently likeable. Don’t miss ’em.
Sydney’s party-hard heavy-hitters TOTALLY UNICORN just released their long-awaited debut LP ‘Dream Life’, and it’s been branded ‘fucking rippingly bizarre’ (Hysteria Mag) and ‘world class’ (Rolling Stone), amongst other things. One of the best live acts going. Partying mandatory, clothing optional.
Milk! Records’ most recent alumni are LOOSE TOOTH. This sweet Melbourne trio write misty-eyed, hazed-out, mega singalongable garage pop tunes, and when they’re not releasing wack videos like this, they’re playing a zillion shows.
Newly-minted UNFD dudes COLUMBUS like to sit up at the bar at Crowbar and talk about Hot Water Music. We like that. We also like their brand of husky punk rock. Harmonise along with single ‘Raindrops’ here and prepare yourself for their debut LP.
Brisbanites WALKEN are like the sonic amalgamation of all our favourite poppy punk acts. Think So-Cal meets Soho. And lovely humans to boot. ‘Even If It Kills Me‘ is a killer tune.
Go on. You’ll have such a good time you won’t even need to attend the rest of the conference.
