SO YOU THINK YOU CAN PHILLY JAYS
FRIDAY 8PM
JUNE 3

Philadelphia Grand Jury have never done things the conventional way, from launching their first album 'Hope Is For Hopers' by playing shows around Sydney on the back of a truck, to recording in a dangerously unfinished building site, to holding a listening party for their latest album 'Summer Of Doom' on a free bus around the city. So it somehow makes sense that they're about to embark on a concept tour, taking their already infamous crowd interaction to the next level.

THE FUNKOARS: 'MAD AS HELL' TOUR
WEDNESDAY 8PM
JUNE 15

On the verge of finally dropping their 5th full length studio album your friendly neighbourhood Funkoars are venturing back out of their caves and deep into your hearts. "Mad as hell" is a distilled throw back to the bands earliest material built around some of the most complex bodily fluid jokes and faux pas this side of Pornhub and The Onion. Delivered over signature drums with the furious amount of funk you've come to expect from ARIA award winning producer Trials (Hilltop Hoods, Seth Sentry, Drapht, A.B. Original), "mad as hell" brings the bands journey back to their often uncomfortable roots as the kings of questionable content full circle and executed with 16 years of experience and confidence in all things crass.
