We all know how upsetting it will be if tiny little viruses manage to stop Avalanche - Band from heading to The Basement Canberra on August the 14th but there is no need to fear. Grab your tickets now and they will be good for a guaranteed rocking time! If we have to shuffle some dates, your ticket will still be as fresh as the day you bought it. And if in the super unlikely event we can't organise some fun for you, we'll happily refund your tickets - so it's a no stress situation! https://ift.tt/3xPiMPf

Huge thanks to all of you who came out on Thursday night! Was a great to see you all for a big night of tunes from THYME, Slowbeard and the Beta Males at The Basement Canberra. Was awesome to get to share the stage with you all and hope we can do it again soon!

We have an awesome mix of music for you tomorrow, the night of May the 13th, 2021! THYME , Slowbeard and Beta Males will be sharing the stage with us for a Thursday most worthy of switching out your lounge room for The Basement. You really can't lose because if you work it out, you are probably in front and you've had a good time to boot! Bear with me here... Add all your monthly expenses together, rent, food, bills and divide that by 30. This is how much you spend a day to sit in your lounge room and watch your nice sized TV and listen to your awesome home stereo while sipping a bottle of beer. You might be one of the lucky ones that has a personal chef but I know I'm not. Now, for about the same price you are paying for all this, you could UPSIZE your Thursday night! Giant PA! Huuuuuge screen! Beer on tap! An actual TEAM of personal chefs at your disposal with Chompy’s at The Basement right in the same room! Live bands who have practiced for thousands of hours, with the soul purpose of entertaining you for the entire evening! What more could you ask for! You haven't lived until you have Upsized your Thursday. Catch you there!

This one is going to be a bunch of fun! Join us at The Basement for a night of cranking tunes on the 13th of May. THYME, Slowbeard and Beta Males will all be smashing out some killer sets for you as well on the night. And as we haven't had a chance to actually do a proper CD launch yet, (thanks, you crazy virus) I think we will have to do something a little special. Grab your tickets now and we'll see you there!

Well that was something else! Who would have thought music sounds better when you stand up? Thank you all so much for coming out and supporting original live music. Was fantastic to see! Massive thanks to Astrodeath for visiting us. You guys tore the roof off the place! Hope the rest of the tour goes well and please, come back any time. A huge thanks to the locals Dead Lazarus, The Narcissists, Grand Duke and Hekate for all smashing out killer sets. World class stuff all around. And to Mike E., Damian and all The Basement crew, cheers for sticking with it through all the shit. Without such a killer venue, we'd all just be busking in the park. Until next time, legends.

Beats Cartel have gone mad and are giving away a 3x4 pack for the Nights of the 666! The maths all works out if you times the 3 by 4 to get 12, then divide it by the amount of numbers in the first equation - which gives you 6. Times that by 111 (the Number of the Bus) and you have one long winded explanation that wasn't even needed at all! Best idea is just to get on to the tagging and sharing to enter the giveaway and get yourself some sweet merch, tix and brews to go with the killer tunes! 1 lucky winner will be announced tomorrow!
