Hence the Testbed

I don't think many people can say that they go a day without listening to some form of music. Even if the music you listen to is not your local bands, those bands you are listening to are local to someone else. And without venues to allow these acts to get off the ground, we'd be in a pretty sad state of affairs. Without support from the likes of The Basement Belconnen, Transit Bar, Smith's Alternative, Thepotbelly Barandbistro and all the other great venues this town has seen, we would not have met and played with almost 400 bands from all around the world. That's pretty amazing for a city where they say nothing ever happens. If the opportunity to support the live music scene presents itself to you, please do what you can. Don't let the fools up on the hill tell you what is important to you and what is not. Vote with your heart, feet and ears.

You changed the way guitar will be played forever. The incredible legacy you leave behind will live on through the millions your gift will continue to inspire every day. Could never thank you enough for the music and inspiration, Eddie Van Halen.

Do you think that if they play our CD on the other side of the planet it will spin backwards? Tune in at the totally reasonable time of 6am on Friday morning to find out!

A huge thanks to all who came out on Friday night! We did our best to recreate our CD cover art on stage and it all went quite well I think! Beta Blockers, Slagatha Christie, Renegade Peacock and ESCAPE SYNDROME all absolutely smashed it on stage. Thanks you brilliant beasts for making our first night out in a long time so memorable! Also a huge thanks to Damian on the sound and Mike E. and the The Basement crew for making the night such a smashing success. We are truly spoiled to have a world class venue right here in our backyard so please, do what ever you can to support it. Shananigans Entertainment, you really are keeping things ticking over in some truly trying times. Thank you heaps! Big thanks to Nicole Bergersen for snapping some photos on the night for all the bands. Really appreciate it! Cheers all!
