Friday 31st July
The Drunken Poachers
The Drunken Poachers, with their wily ways and wooden instruments, have… snuck boot-clad and boozed onto Melbourne’s live music stages. A dubious sextet not to be trusted, they poach the tunes of others and after a white-wash of their brand of Irish-blue-grass-country, they declare what never belonged to them, their own.
Dishonest and dirty and wearing flannelette better than you do, they’re leaving heavy heads and dented floors in their very catchy wake. With the aid of banjo, gee-tah, ukulele and mandolin, backed by Irish fiddle, uke bass and propped up with lager phone and a trifle of trumpet, their hearty harmonic throat is unlike any other.
The Drunken Poachers have a bashful approach to making feet tap and will be your best laid plan when you are out and on the hunt. Don’t go past The Drunken Poachers if you’re in to a band who will have your feet tapping to the bar and back. And back again.
See them every Friday night at The Reverence Hotel throughout the month of July!

Resist Presents: Code Orange “I Am King” Australian Tour 2015
Formed in 2008, Pittsburgh’s Code Orange does things their own way. Unconcerned with the direction of other artists, their brand of aggressive hardcore/punk merges hardcore power, intense dirge, and cryptic melody into their own uniquely-inspired sound. The band released a series of EP’s and demos that lead to 2012’s groundbreaking LP, Love Is Love/Return To Dust and toured the globe relentlessly over the course of two years in support of it.
In September of 2014, Code Orange released their landmark second album, I Am King, to great critical acclaim; Alternative Press hailed it as ”… riveting… at times overwhelming in the best possible way”. The album shifts from “heavy” to “hard to define” through the use of unorthodox guitar work and percussion and chaotic song structuring. I Am King shows Code Orange re-imagining what aggressive music can be, elevating and expanding what can be done within the confines of the genre without leaving it behind.
