Hot Gigs and Hot Tips - 30 Jun 2016

Even as seasoned gig goers we’re a little dumbfounded over how many amazing gigs are on this Friday night. Alex Lahey aka the gal all over your newsfeed plays The Penny Black with Frances Fox and The Outdoor Type, Teeth & Tongue are at the Northcote Social Club with Sui Zhen and Karli White, while Banoffee is hitting up Roxanne Parlour with Dro Carey, Lossless and Habits. Any attempts to hit them all up will be commended.


Tiny Little Houses kick of their residency at The Gasometer on Wednesday 6 July and are providing fans with the chance to hear some new songs for the very first time. They’ll be joined by Good Morning and Full Flower Moon Band.


Meanwhile, Australia’s favourite son Dan Kelly is celebrating the 10th anniversary of his album Drowning in the Fountain of Youth with a show at Howler onSaturday 30 July. The album features the classic song ‘Drunk on Election Night’ which is sure to get a few spins this weekend. Joining him will be local legends Loose Tooth and Jade Imagine.


Ball Park Music are coming out with their new album Every Night the Same Dream real soon and have announced a national tour to coincide with its release. They play 170 Russell on Friday 7 October with The Creases and Sahara Beck. Ball Park are the kind of band that sell shows out quick, best to snap these tickets up before they’re gone.


Psych rockers Pretty City are so stoked that their new album Colorize is now available on vinyl that they’re hitting the road to celebrate. Catch them at Yah Yah’s on Saturday 13 August for guaranteed good times.
