Hot Gigs and Hot Tips - 15 Jun 2016

Friday is shaping up to be a huge night gig wise. Rather than split hairs between our favourite pick for “Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday” (Rebecca Black, 2012), we thought we’d give you all three and let you decide:

  • Rnb/electro artist Elizabeth Rose brings her high-energy live show to Brunswick’s Howler, supported by Baro.
  • Local surf rockers The Sand Dollars are bringing their sixties throwback rock to The Gasometer, joined by Tali Mahoney, The Moody Spooks and Ricci (Mango Retreat), BYO dancin shoes
  • Last but not least, Gabriella Cohen kicks off her national tour at the Northcote Social Club. She will be supported by a stellar line up of Crepes and Hearing, with back up singing from The Carpark Choir.

If there is anything we at Gigbill love more than music, it’s good TV. That’s why we’re super stoked to see Craig Robinson (aka Darryl Philbin of The Office US) playing in Melbourne this Saturday night. Performing as Craig Robinson and The Nasty Delicious, he will be delivering his lyrical comedy and soulful music talent at The Corner in Richmond.


Everyone’s favourite funk outfit Animaux have announced one of their first shows of 2016. They will play Fitzroy’s The Workers Club on July 29th with Woody Pitney and Dhana Bhutan.

Jakubi will bring their irresistible brand of hip hop/soul to Yah Yah’s on July 17th. If you haven’t caught these guys live yet, do yourself a favour and check them out- their incredible stage energy is infectious and makes for a great set every time.

After recently releasing second album ‘Strange Loop’, Paul Dempsey has announced a national tour. Featuring singles ‘Morningless’ and title track ‘Strange Loop’, this release is a little more diverse than 2009’s ‘Everything is True’. Support will be provided by Melbourne songstress Olympia.
