To celebrate the annual announcement, RIU are hosting a showcase gig at The Jade Monkey this Thursday. Unfortunately sans Horror My Friend as they are busy bees recording their debut album in Melbourne. Lucky we all already know how hot their set is, amirite?
It's a tasty smorgasbord of a line-up though, and we wish all six acts the very best this year!
Thursday, The Jade Monkey, 7pm
Tickets: $10 OTD, $5 for TREv Members
COBRA PRESENT : VOLUME II
Our chat with Jonty last week left so much to the imagination, and now Cobra Presents is a must see. A big old jam with some of Adelaide fresh faced musicians till the wee hours at Ancient World. A club night like no other in Adelaide.
Plus if you are a first time UBER user, you can score a free ride to or from the event! The magic word is "COBRAPRESENTS".
Thursday, Ancient World, 9pm
Tickets: Gold coin donation!
FROM THE PIT: PHOTOS BY LAUREN CONNELLY
It's been a big year for local music photographer Lauren Connelly, and she has some big photos to prove it. This Friday she will be exhibiting her work at Hello, Yes sharing moments spanning the last three years. Numerous photos by Lauren have been shortlisted for Pedestrian TV Photo Awards, and feature some of the biggest names in music. We can feel the goosebumps already!
Friday, Hello, Yes , 6pm PS. Hello, Yes is great. You should eat food there sometime.
LOST WOODS 'ANCIENT PSYCHIC TANDEM WAR ELEPHANT' SINGLE LAUNCH
We are impressed with the amount of Adventure Time lovin' Adelaide bands are throwing around. Keep it up.
Lost Woods were another band getting busy in 2014. They started picking up some really good support shows including Holy Holy, did a cheeky trip over to Melbourne and record new material which we are looking forward to hearing more and more of.
Next single up is 'Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant' which is getting launched this Friday at Rocket. Local favourites The Rocketeers, The Informers and Dan White will be joining. Dan White is worth the awkward 'early to the club' arrival, trust us.
Friday, Rocket Bar, 9pm.
Tickets: $10 if you join the FB event, $15 on the door
BIG ASS SHOW
Too many bands for the cap lock title. Soz.
Friday, 9pm, Pirie & Co.
Tickets: No idea. Free? Only time will tell.
THE VILLENTTES ‘LADY LUCK’ ALBUM LAUNCH
All we ever wanted was to be bad ass lady rockers in an all girl band. Luckily The Villenettes have us covered.
The much anticipated release of their debut album 'Lady Luck' is finally this Saturday night! Featuring fellow all female band The Rebrobettes (Melb) and Stabbitha & The Knifey Wifeys (ten points for band name). And if that wasn’t enough bad ass lady action for you, there will be a set-break burlesque performance from Miss Madeleine DeVille. Hawt dayum.
Seriously though, if you are going to go to this don't half cut your sandwich. Punk it up. Country it up. Wear red lipstick. Eat boys for breakfast.
Saturday, The Jade Monkey, 9pm.
Tickets: Pre sales HERE, or $10 on the door.
