Traveller(Jonny Fritz, Robert Ellis & Corey Chisel) with The Deslondes (US) plus Lillie Mae

Traveller is the side project of solo artists JONNY FRITZ, ROBERT ELLIS & COREY CHISEL They formed the group to take a detour around the well paved, monotonous road of solo artistry. It's a band of three great friends, all with distinct styles, who love to write and perform together. This is a no brainer.

The Deslondes are a five-piece band from New Orleans. In the time between the release of their self-titled debut and sophomore album, Hurry Home, The Deslondes have toured the world and drawn critical acclaim for their studied and inventive take on New Orleans country and R&B.

Hurry Home represents a sonic shift from the country-folk of their debut to a psychedelic, electrified soul sound, with a stronger emphasis on organ and electric guitar.

The Heartache State

JUSTIN GARNER & NICK BARKER have been playing together on and off for 15 years – Nick producing Justin’s band Southpaw’s debut album and Justin playing on Nick’s last solo record (Blackwater Blues). 3 years ago they hunched over acoustic guitars and hammered a bunch of ideas into songs that became the Heartache State’s debut self titled album. Justin loves the Allman Bros, Nick loves the Replacements, every one likes the Stones so the band, with the addition of long time friend VENOM on Drums and MICHAEL HUBBARD on Bass, is a collision of all. Special guest AMARILLO

2017 sees The Heartache State’s second album “Last of the Buffalo” venturing deeper down the same road.

“It was a bucket list thing in some ways, to record an album without a net if you will. We basically swapped ideas back and forth on our phones, then went into producer Shane O’Mara’s Yikesville studio without any arrangements or real format for the songs.

Lindi Ortega (Can)

When LINDI ORTEGA went in search of some quiet last year, the award-winning artist was pleasantly surprised to find a voice she hadn’t heard in some time – her own. Amid sparse, atmospheric production, it’s precisely this voice – a combination of Ortega’s fatalistic perspective expressed with her evocative soprano – that grips your attention on a brand new EP, Til The Goin’ Gets Gone. Special guest BROOKE RUSSELL

A dogged resilience permeates this unadorned collection – three originals and a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Waiting ‘Round To Die.” The songs are the hard-won spoils of an internal war with words that struck after an extended stretch of touring, addressed in the EP’s title track about the detours and ditches that a traveling musician faces.

“The early 80s was an amazing time in Australian music, particular Sydney,” recalls singer Damien Lovelock. “It seemed like every pub had live music three or four nights a week and there still weren’t enough venues to go around.”

Establishing themselves through their distinctive sound and high energy performance, the Celibate Rifles quickly came to the forefront of the vibrant alternative music scene.

Deep Leads is the underlying layer to their previous album Loom. Where Loom explored the basalt bed of the Merri Creek, Deep Leads heads underground and within, exploring industrial, agricultural and personal histories (Blue Lake, The Dry, Invertebrate City), heavy and precious metals (Radium Girls, Mine), internal realms of escape and quest (Poison Garden, Cyclamen, Nitrates).

Models

When they formed, MODELS were hailed as one of the most innovative and imaginative Australian bands. Nearly four decades later, nothing has changed. Well, that’s not quite right – a lot of things have changed, but not the band’s approach to making music. The Models are SEAN KELLY, ANDREW DUFFIELD, MARK FERRIE & ASH DAVIES.

They have always done things their own way. As the authors of The 100 Best Australian Albums (which featured Models’ The Pleasure Of Your Company) stated: “Melbourne electronic outfit Models followed a distinctly perverse and disjointed course from the outset.”

The band actually had a “no singles” policy when they started – which annoyed Molly Meldrum.

When he performed in 1966 at The Onion Patch, home of the Red Onions Jazz Band, little did he know he would be returning 48 years later to the very same stage, now The Caravan Club, to perform a homage to the streets of his youth.

This will be the 9th year The Susans have dusted off the tinsel and fired up the Christmas lights, for what has now become a Melbourne tradition. As usual they’ll be a smorgasbord of Christmas related songs, including choice cuts from their latest album and the best of their extensive back catalogue.

2017 has been a big year for The Blackeyed Susans, with the new album ‘Close Your Eyes and See’ getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike and their live shows selling out across the country. So, come help The Susans celebrate the birth of little baby Jesus in style this Christmas.

Special guests to be announced.

Mia Dyson

Award-winning Australian singer-songwriter MIA DYSON is thrilled to unveil her new single, Gambling and announce an Australian headline tour in support of the new track with a string of dates around the country throughout November and December. Gambling is the first taste of her brand new album, due out early 2018.

“The thought of choosing to be vulnerable is scary before I act on it. And, being vulnerable is the most fulfilling way I have found to live. ‘Gambling’ is a reminder that this moment is the chance to either live life on life’s terms; or to let the chance for an experience slip away in positive or negative fantasy.
