We had such a killer night of thumping tunes at our last outing with Mattersphere and The Pretty Bones supporting the amazing Ablaze on their Long Way Home tour, that there was no choice but to hit up the Transit Bar again! This time, our great mates in Cognisant and Tundrel will be joining us in welcoming Chasing Lana to our fair city on the 13th of July. Hit us up for tickets to this one so as the Chasing Lana lads are motoring all the way up from Melbourne, they know they'll have a warm welcome waiting despite the Canberra chill. You really shouldn't miss this one!

Once again Canberra has floored us with a deluge of talent at Festival Allsorts #4. Such a great line up and a very proud day to be a muso in this crazy little town. Well done to all the punters, bands, staff and crew that made such a big day possible. And a big cheers to Shananigans Entertainment and The Basement for giving everyone such a cool platform to showcase their wares! Next up, we get to show some friends from Melbourne around when the Ablaze - 'Long Way Home' Tour - Transit Bar, Canberra hits town. With The Pretty Bones and Mattersphere for tour guides, I think we are in for one hell of a pit stop for the Ablaze boys!

Our next outing is an inSANE lineup of local talent. On May 11th, we'll be hanging with Psionic Tide + ESCAPE SYNDROME + Beta Blockers + Changeable Dan + SCOTTS + MEDUSAEYE (Formerly Chasing Nimbus) + The Barren Spinsters + reignofterror + Local Horror + Prophecise + CHUD + Hence the Testbed + Clarity of Chaos (album launch) + Loud So Clear + Cockbelch + The Wardens Of Sound + The Narcissists + The Get Downs + Fvceless + El'Rose + Palace Revolution + GtoA + Teiva Jade + Just Jen + John Wickham All from your home town, all worth the price of admission on their own! Don't worry though, once we all pile in to The Basement, there will still be plenty of room for everyone else. We'll be selling some tickets for $25 that will cost you $35 on the door if any are left. A buck a band. Won't get a better deal than that this side of Saint Swithen's day, no matter how many kippers you have.

Thanks for visiting us Filthy Lucre! You boys smashed it! Such a huge sound and energy for two dudes. Was a pleasure to see you guys strut your stuff. Mattersphere, you boys rocked out hard as usual! Was great to watch. Taliesin / Silentia, those harmonies are something special. You guys always remind me how good music can be. Thanks to Damo for the killer work behind the faders. Getting as many compliments as the bands means you are doing something special back there. Cheers to everyone who came out and made it a great night. The Basement crew were in fine form as always and are the most gracious hosts you could wish to have. Try the Hellrancho burger with aoli and BBQ. It is wicked! Good luck with the rest of the tour guys. You are killing it!

For all of you who witnessed Saturday nights tune fest you will be well aware that Tundrel and Cicadastone were awesome! For those who didn't manage to catch the show, try not to miss out next time. You really won't be disappointed by either of these bands. Thank you to The Basement for having us and to Julian for the killer sound once again! We are still plugging away at finalising the first part of the EP. Just a bit of art (which is looking bloody awesome so far thanks Przemek!) and some uploading to do and you'll be able to dive in and have a listen. It's been a long road but it's finally looking like Part 1 of 2 will be in your hands very soon. About bloody time!

A belated but none the less hearty thanks to all who came out to Shananigans 12 - The Big-Kids Party! (Shaggs' 40th!! bday bash). Thanks for making it such a great night! We had a hell of a time soaking in all the killer acts and as you can tell by the belated nature of this post, have only just recovered. Triple thumbs up to everyone who made it all possible. Don't ask where we got the extra thumb though - we still aren't sure.

Thanks to all who have grabbed their tickets already. MVP's the lot of ya! But there are only 4 chances left to stick-it-to-da-man and keep your hard earned 'booking' and/or 'I didn't get around to organising a ticket in time' fee in your pocket where it belongs. You'll join the MVP list and you can spend the spoils on pinball and popcorn chicken! See you all soon!

Like saving money? Enjoy a good time? If you ignored both these questions because you were out having fun in a frugal manner then this deal is for you! We have a few tickets left for Shananigans 12 - The Big-Kids Party! (Shaggs' 40th!! bday bash)! Grab 'em now and you'll be saving a whopping 16.66667% off the price that the less organised party animal will be paying at the door. If the tickets were $5,999,998.80 you would be saving a cool million bucks! Crazy huh? If you do want to save that sort of cash, we can sort you out with 240,000 tickets (we'll even round it up for you!), but we'll also sell them in singles for just $25 a pop. Get in contact with us and we'll sort you out. 🤟😀 See you there nice and early for some Mario Kart action!
