Bob "Bongo" Starkie's "Million Dollar Riff" + Broderick Smith

Venue:Satellite Lounge, Cnr Ferntree Gully & Jells Roads, Wheelers Hill
Date:Saturday, August 27th
Time:8.00pm (6pm for dining/seats)
Fee:$25+bf (GA standing); $36+bf (reserved seats); $28 (door, if available)

Back in the early 70s, SKYHOOKS and THE DINGOES were label mates at MUSHROOM RECORDS, with Skyhooks supporting the Dingoes at many shows - including Sunbury '74 - prior to the runaway success of Skyhooks' debut album, "Living in the Seventies".

The rest may be history, but two legends from these bands are still going strong and will share the stage for one awesome night of pure rock at Satellite Lounge on Saturday, August 27.
 
Former Skyhooks guitarist Bob ‘Bongo’ Starkie is performing the classic songs in his show, "Million Dollar Riff" -  a personal celebration of one of Australia’s most beloved bands. Skyhooks helped change the face of rock n roll in the 1970s with No. 1 and Top 10 singles to their credit, as well as two of the country’s biggest selling albums, "Living in the 70s" and "Ego is Not A Dirty Word", both produced by Ross Wilson and critically acclaimed.

Skyhooks were described as ‘giving the Australian music industry the enema it needed’ when they smashed onto the scene in their colourful costumes and wearing make-up well before their peers. After the release of their debut album, it wasn’t long before the five members of the bands were major celebrities – Shirley, the enigmatic curly-haired lead-singer, guitarist Red Symons, guitarist Bob Starkie, bassist and songwriter Greg Macainsh and drummer Fred Strauks. They released killer singles such as Horror Movie, Ego (Is Not A Dirty Word), Women In Uniform and  Jukebox in Siberia, to name a few, and are one of the few bands who have been a permanently on rotation on radio stations around the country for decades. They were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame and ceased touring together after the tragic death of lead singer Shirley in 2001.

The Black Sorrows

Venue:Satellite Lounge, Cnr Ferntree Gully & Jells Roads, Wheelers Hill
Date:Saturday, August 20th
Time:8.00pm (6pm for dining/seats)
Fee:$32+bf (GA standing); $45=bf (reserved seats); $35 (door, if available)

Celebrating launch month for Melbourne’s newest live venue, Satellite Lounge is proud to present The Black Sorrows – headed by the inimitable Joe Camilleri -  on Saturday, August 20 at the Wheelers Hill Hotel.

Since 1984, The Black Sorrows have toured Australia more times than anyone can remember, played sell out shows across Europe, won an ARIA for Best Band and sold more than two million albums worldwide.

Any examination of The Black Sorrows inevitably comes down to one person: Joe Camilleri (singer, songwriter, saxophonist, producer and the brains behind The Black Sorrows) is one of the most genuinely talented figures in Australian music, always showing fans and critics alike that he is a performer with an undeniable energy and love of it all.

The Sorrows has been home to over 40 talented Australian musicians at different times and acted as a launch pad for the careers of some of Australia’s most successful musicians.  Membership in The Black Sorrows has always been loose and fluid, with Camilleri being the only constant.

This is a great chance to see live on stage, the writer of milestone Australian songs such as So Young, Hit And Run, Shape I’m In, Hold On To Me, Harley and Rose, Chained To The Wheel, Never Let Me Go and the Chosen Ones.

Michael, a master of vocal gymnastics, can imitate over 1000 sound effects using his voice alone. Whether he is recreating the frenzy of Jimi Hendrix playing the guitar, or the roar of a jet plane, his talent is truly remarkable and his versatility admirable.

At Yarraville Club, expect to see his incredibly funny rebooted soundscapes from Star Wars, Justin Bieber, Transformers, Mary Poppins, Led Zeppelin, Lord Of The Rings and Taylor Swift, among many others. 
 
Currently blitzing the US, including another jaw dropping appearance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon", his string of iconic film and TV credits include Gremlins, Back To The Future, Mel Brooks' Spaceballs, Family Guy & The Simpsons.

Old and Grey Tour Dates

Saturday July 30 - The Crown and Anchor, Adelaide
Friday August 5 -  The Workers Club, Melbourne
Saturday August 13 - Botany View Hotel, Sydney

Hard working and culturally classic rock-punk band, My Echo are gearing up to release new single ‘Old and Grey’ on July 29th, the first taste of their debut album, and to celebrate they are heading out on the road. ‘Old and Grey’ speaks of old friendships, nostalgia, hardships and resilience.

The Melbourne four piece, My Echo, packed up the van and headed to Adelaide for a couple of weeks in April with producer Hadyn Buxton (Trial Kennedy, Ecca Vandal) to record the album. 24 hours a day, for 18 days, could stretch a lot of friendships, but going into lock down to record the album brought the band of mates closer together, as a band and as friends.

ARIA Award winning singer-songwriter Clare Bowditch; PJ Harvey-collaborator Mick Harvey; critically acclaimed five-piece Augie March; Brisbane indie rock trio The Grates; and legendary US rock singer Kid Congo with The Pink Monkey Birds lead the lineup for the next Friday Nights at NGV series for Degas: A New Vision. 

 

Over thirteen weeks, Friday Nights at NGV will showcase after-hours art, live music and entertainment, with an outstanding lineup of headline acts including:

 

Friday 24 June – Clare Bowditch

Friday 1 July – The Goon Sax

Friday 8 July – The Grates

Friday 15 July – Husky

Friday 22 July – The Apartments

Friday 29 July – Halfway

Friday 5 August – Jen Cloher

Friday 12 August – The Painted Ladies

Friday 26 August – Kid Congo & The Pink Monkeybirds (USA)

Friday 2 September – Mick Harvey: Intoxicated Man – The Songs of Serge Gainsbourg

Friday 9 September – Pierce Brothers

Friday 16 September – Augie March

 

Tony Ellwood, Director, NGV, said, ‘Friday Nights at NGV continues to be one of the most popular events on our programming calendar, offering a unique opportunity to see an array of local and international music acts as well as late-night access to Degas: A New Vision, pop-up talks, foods, drinks and more.’ 

 

American rock musician Kid Congo Powers, best known as former guitarist for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Gun Club and The Cramps, will present his newest album with The Pink Monkey Birds, La Araña Es La Vida, when he brings his raw style of garage-punk to the NGV Great Hall on 26 August.

 

Fresh from a European tour with PJ Harvey, Melbourne-based musician Mick Harvey will play tracks from his latest album Delirium Tremens and previous two volumes Intoxicated Man and Pink Elephants on 2 September. Featuring reinterpretations of songs by seminal French artist Serge Gainsbourg, this special performance will complement Degas: A New Vision by bringing together the work of Degas and Gainsbourg, two iconic French artists.

 

Collaborative Australian music act, The Painted Ladies, will honour the music of Aboriginal music pioneer Vic Simms, who toured with Buddy Holly and Shirley Bassey while still in high school in the 1960s. Tracks from Simms’ album Loner, considered a lost classic, will be performed when The Painted Ladies take to the stage on 12 August.

 

The Friday Nights lineup also includes teenage trio The Goon Sax who have built up a distinctive indie-pop sound and been hailed by Pitchfork as a ‘distinctly Australian blend of honesty and unpretentiousness.’

 

Other highlights include Melbourne singer Jess Ribeiro with a new, darker sound honed while working with producer Mick Harvey on her sophomore album Kill It Yourself, as well as indie folk band, Husky, whose love of Bob Dylan and Neil Young is apparent through the artful songwriting of Melburnian Husky Gawenda and his cousin Gideon Preiss.

 

Eight-piece band Halfway will present their unique Australian take on country music, including tracks from their new album, The Golden Halfway Record, which was recorded in the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee.

 

Melbourne singer-songwriter Jen Cloher will showcase the husky-voiced tunes for which she has earned ARIA and Australian Music Prize nominations, while multi-instrumentalist twin brothers the Pierce Brothers, who recently finished a world tour, will also perform.

 

The setting for Friday Nights at NGV is inspired by 1920s Parisian café style, with live jazz, food and drinks. Instrumental and vocal ensembles will set the tone for a sophisticated and relaxed evening of art, dining, music and conversation.

 

The world premiere exhibition Degas: A New Vision will display the biggest collection of Degas works ever seen in Australia, with more than 200 pieces which reveal the artist’s talent in a new light; not only as a great master of painting, but also as a master of drawing, printmaking, sculpture and photography.

Band Of Horses Show

Venue:The Forum Theatre
Date:Sun 24 July, 2016
Booking:www.handsometours.com

In the past, Band of Horses founder and leader Ben Bridwell would literally run away from home to write: Holing up in a secluded cabin or other such remote location, emerging months later with new songs for his band to flesh out and fully animate. This time-whether by happenstance or conscious need for a drastic change-Ben stayed home to write. In the estrogen-charged atmosphere of a home shared with his wife and four-yes, four--daughters he allowed his everyday experiences to inform his process. Between dropping off and picking up the girls, changing diapers, and playing dress up, Bridwell spent every precious free minute-often the wee hours on the morning into daybreak--in his garage writing.

Rolling Thunder Vietnam – Songs That Defined A Generation

Booking:www.rollingthundervietnam.com

THE sensational Australian concert drama Rolling Thunder Vietnam – Songs That Defined A Generation returns for an exclusive national tour in July-August 2016 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan.

 

The acclaimed production became one of the most talked about musical and theatrical events of 2014 when it toured nationally after premiering at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) in Brisbane. Under the blazing musical direction of Chong Lim (John Farnham Band, Dancing With the Stars), Rolling Thunder Vietnam earned standing ovations at every performance, winning plaudits from audiences and critics alike.

 

Rolling Thunder Vietnam showcases an outstanding cast, including rising talents KIMBERLEY HODGSON, TOM OLIVER, WILL EWING and MATT PEARCE (currently appearing in the musical RENT at Hayes Theatre Co.) They will be joined by the powerhouse Australian singer-actor BEN MINGAY, star of Wonderland and Packed to the Rafters. Ben also played the role of Tommy Devito in the Australian tour of Jersey Boys and Billy in Dirty Dancing on London’s West End.

N’fa Jones Touring with Remi

Booking:Nfajones.com

The first taste for 2014 of N’fa Jones forthcoming album Black + White Noise is ‘Money Better Come’. The title of the track speaks for itlself. ‘Money Better Come’ is a Styalz Fuego production with Kaylen Behr featuring on the chorus giving it that good ol’ fashion Summer vibe we all need.
 
Summing up the way N’fa Jones often feels the life of an artist plays out, the track comes with fun and clever video clip directed by Nic McRobbie. While reflecting on the fragility of life, N’fa still manages to poke a bit of fun at himself, while singing (yep singing) melodies, telling an honest story, and of course kickin a rapped verse to keep the Hip Hop alive.
 
Get a taste for it while N’fa is on national tour with fellow House of Beige family member and triple j Unearthed winner Remi through February.


Friday 7th Feb - Coniston Lane Front Room (Ex-Wasteland) – Brisbane w/ Remi
Saturday 8th Feb – Northcote Social Club - Melbourne w/ Remi

The Superjesus 2014 Tour Dates

Booking:Thesuperjesus.com

Respected Aussie rock outfit The Superjesus is hitting the road for the Australia Day long weekend, celebrating in fine style with three live shows.  They’ll kick off on 24th January at Waves Wollongong, then head to Bateau Bay Hotel on the 25th, with a massive Australia Day gig on 26th January at Garrison Point, Bankstown.

Following their successful ‘Reformation’ tour earlier this year, which saw the band playing live for the first time in ten years, The Superjesus has been working on new material and are looking forward to road testing it on their fans, with further live dates to come.

The Superjesus rose to prominence in Adelaide in 1994, and was eagerly embraced for their electrifying live shows, spearheaded by charismatic front woman, Sarah McLeod.  They were quick to find support from national broadcaster Triple J and were on their way, enjoying multiplatinum album success with Sumo, Jetage and Rock Music and delivering hit singles such as ‘Gravity’, ‘Secret Agent Man’, ‘Shut My Eyes’ and ‘Down Again’.

The Superjesus live in January 2014:

Friday 24th Waves, Wollongong
Saturday 25th Bateau Bay Hotel, Bateau Bay
Sunday 26th Australia Day concert, Garrison Point, Bankstown
