Imagine, a room, awash in gasoline. And there are two implacable bands in that room; each holding thousands of matches. Well, that's the kind of situation we will actually be in. Well not exactly...........but the explosive impact of Astrid and The Asteroids' infallible blend of soul and funk along with Brother Fox's high-energy folk rock fusion would have even the most poetic cosmologists running to Carl Sagan's Handbook of Awesome Metaphors.

The self described “New Wave of Folk Metal” Swiss octet Eluveitie, will finally land on our shores in May 2013.
Forming in 2002, Eluveitie have refined themselves over the years into a fine art that incorporates traditional death metal elements and mixes them seamlessly with European folk instruments such as flutes, hurdy-gurdies, violin, bagpipes, fiddles, mandolin and pipes. And with most of the lyrics sung in an ancient Gaulish tongue, the overall effect is mesmerizing, sweeping and grandiose.
They consistently produce unique and entertaining live shows around the world continually gaining rave reviews for their stage presence, energy, articulate sound and amazing way of drawing you into their world.
Bang your head to the heavy parts, whisk yourself away to an ancient land via the searing melodies of the pipes and flutes and jig with your stein in hand when the hurdy-gurdy comes crashing in!

Celebrating the release of their first new album in 14 years, seminal dream pop outfit Underground Lovers will debut their seventh full length album, ‘Weekend’ via a series of exclusive shows across the East Coast starting in their hometown of Melbourne on April 20th.
The album title, a nod to Jean Luc Godard’s agitprop 60’s masterpiece of the same name, takes its listeners on a musical journey of exquisite tension and propulsive rhythms to a place you never want to leave. A combination of distinctive guitar, dance loops, ethereal vocals and introspective lyrics produce the unusual pop / rock songs and atmospheric dance music that is the first album in some years from Underground Lovers.
Be the first to witness 'Weekend' come alive when the original line up of Vincent Giarusso, Glenn Bennie, Maurice Argiro, Richard Andrew, Phillipa Nihill are joined by Emma Bortignon on second bass for a series of special ‘Weekend’ album launches across the East Coast.
