Welcoming very special guests:
- Ali Barter
Two years on from her blistering debut A Suitable Girl, Ali Barter has announced her triumphant return with Hello, I'm Doing My Best - a revealing collection of songs that track her most formative relationships: to her body, her instincts, sobriety and the old vices it counteracts, and the people she loves most.
Hello, I'm Doing My Best was released on October 18, via Inertia Music / [PIAS],
- Bad Pony
Whether it's heritage, hope or insanity that fuels them, Sydney-based Bad Pony simply do not stop. With four national tours under their belt and three international showcases (Singapore's Music Matters - 2016, Canadian Music Week - 2017, SXSW - 2018), Bad Pony have spent the most part of their career together on the road, not to mention having independently released four self-produced singles, all with national radio success.
After playing to packed out venues across Austin, the highlight of this year's SXSW for Bad Pony was easily playing Sound's Australia's Aussie BBQ at the inaugural Australia House showcase. Playing before national idols such as Gang of Youths, Bad Pony's explosive performance saw them walk away with the award of 'Best Australian Group', as voted by The AU Review.
The indie-rock-pop-dance-funk outfit (let's be honest, they're a hybrid of genres but all that matters is that they're a bloody great time on stage) kicked off 2017 with a showcase at Canadian music week, inked a management deal with Sydney-based agency, ArowAgency and scored a Rolling Stone Australia premiere for their single 'Deficiency'. If that wasn't enough excitement, they topped off another huge year of touring with a performance at Australian Music Week and winning the Australian Music Week award.
Forming after countless gigs together in previous Brisbane bands and soon becoming best pals, WALKEN are a pop-fuelled frenzy of Alternative Rock and ambitious Punk that will satisfy your nostalgia-ridden pop-punk loving heart.
- Friday Park
Friday Park is a girl band with punk/indie vibes and an abstract take on the world.
Starting out in early 2017 they never saw themselves as rockers but as the music unfolded and the Aussie accent came out, nothing could be done.
The girls have been working hard in the past year with music production and breaking into the live scene. While still trying to find their voice in the large universe of emerging young artists they are making more and more material all the time.
Friday Park are here for the love of music and indie culture and as a group they emulate just that.
Indie Surf Rock Band from Shellharbour NSW.
Inspired by that surfy, laid back kind of music. Swells are four guys out of Shellharbour, Wollongong looking to make some chilled out music and have a bit of fun along the way.
