A Gazillion Angry Mexicans + Grindhouse + Cotangent + Two Headed Dog
The people have spoken. They need two things. More Rock, and more Mexicana. Enter A Gazillion Angry Mexicans. The lads from Melbourne have just released their latest single ‘Black & Blue Blues’, taken from debut EP ‘Juan, Two, Three, Four’. From what began as the drunken ramblings shared between a local group of miscreants at a dim lit city watering hole, A Gazillion Angry Mexicans are quickly becoming one of Melbourne’s most well respected independent bands. Employing a charismatic, incendiary live show, A Gazillion Angry Mexicans have won over audiences locally and abroad, developing a reputation as one of the city’s best live bands. ‘Juan, Two, Three, Four’ is available for download through Bandcamp. They play the Reverence Hotel on Saturday June 19th with Grindhouse, Cotangent and Two Headed Dog.

The Casualties (USA) + Big D And The Kids Table (USA) + Heartsounds (USA)
Hits & Pits Festival proudly presents this super sweet sideshow featuring three terrific US punk acts – The Casualties, Big D And The Kids Table and Heartsounds. The Casualties, also well into their twenties, will be in tow with nine studio albums that have influenced and paved the way for so many of the disillusioned and dispossessed. Representing Boston and known for both ferocity and tenacity is none other than Big D and the Kids Table. Not anyone’s token ska/punk band as they showed with the release of Stomp/Stroll in 2013. And Heartsounds, whose fast, melodic take on 90s skate punk influences is digestible and addictive almost making it hard to believe they find their roots in death metal. A big night that’ll no doubt sell fast, scoop up tickets stat!
7.30pm – Band room – $43 pre-sale / $50 on the door if available
