Saturday 28th May Fear Like Us (album launch) + Run Squirrel (nsw) + Lincoln le Fevre & The Insiders + Naked Waste We are heading out with our mates Run Squirrel this May to support our new album “Succour” and Run Squirrel’s new EP! Rarely has an album title rung truer to the philosophy of an act. Once Novacastrian, now long-time Melbourne act FEAR LIKE US have returned with a long-awaited second LP ‘Succour’, to be released via Poison City Records on May 6 on CD/Digital/Vinyl. Once loosely categorised under the ‘folk punk’ banner, across twelve years Fear Like Us have evolved into a powerful genre-crossing melodic punk act. Respected as one of the foundation acts signed to the landmark Poison City label, Fear Like Us have inspired and informed the sound of many of the acts on the label, whilst retaining strong folk influences and boasting very broad appeal. Fear Like Us’s impassioned sound harnesses electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, expansive drum sounds and frontman Jamie Hay’s signature gravelly growl. ‘Succour’ will deliver shivers down your spine like the the first time you heard crowded house on a balmy summer evening. Lyrically, Hay continues to explore political injustice, the peaks and pitfalls of the modern Australian pysche, love, loss and longing. These are uniquely Australian narratives, powerful, invigorating, earthy and deeply relatable. 8pm – Front bar – $15 Facebook event

Saturday 16th July Oblivious Maximus Live Podcast with Host Aaron Osborne Podcast #1 guests: Natalie Hendry (Lecturer and Researcher), Ben Searle (The Bad Times Podcast), Meg Gallagher (Mixed Martial Artist) Podcast #2 guests: Bec Reato (Deathproof PR), Pat Fox (Graphic Designer), Jelena Goluza (Outright) Music from Hoodlum Shouts Cheap Tinnies from Young Henrys The Oblivious Maximus Podcast has announced it’s second leap into the world of live podcasting this winter. Inviting crowds along to witness the controlled chaos, Oblivious Maximus will host two live shows to discuss music, life and most likely Michael Jackson or Eyehategod. Host Aaron Osborne will attempt to steer his eclectic mix of guests into sharing personal experience and knowledge about various elements of the music industry and being a part of the world of alternative music as a whole to help enlighten and entertain listeners, and attendees! Following on from the inaugural live recording last November, Oblivious Maximus will be returning once again to the Reverence Hotel in Melbourne and adding a first time trip to Crowbar Black in Brisbane to have a beer-soaked conversation in Brisbane’s home of the heavy. In the previous live installment, the focus of the podcast was quite defined. This OM will broaden the scope of conversation to include a wider panel of guests, and entertain the interests of more listeners. The podcasts aim to shed light on working within the music industry, being a part of an alternative community and contributing to the world of music, without that contribution being strictly musical. The podcasts will once again feature musical guests , with Poison City Records legends Hoodlum Shouts providing the soundtrack for the Reverence show, and Gifthorse vocalist Shane Collins lending his solo acoustic crooning to the Crowbar Black conversation. Young Henrys Brewery will be involved with both events, running a tinny bar and hosting giveaways,to provide the appropriate fuel for Aaron and his guests to get through a good chunk of chatter. 1.30pm – Front bar – $10 Facebook event
