TOP-DRAWER GIGS: This Week's Top Picks



Another week, another list of excellent gigs to see to. A tap on the back to you if you were fortunate enough to get tickets to Winston Surfshirt's two sold out shows at the Oxford Art Factory. Same goes for Holy Holy's sold out show at The Factory Theatre on Friday. If not, well there's absolutely nothing to stress about because, would you have a look at the below?!

All tickets and info here. Although it looks like you won't be needing any tickets because all of the below shows are free. What a treat.


PLANET + GIRLTHING DJS + SEASIDE - Beach Road Hotel - FREE (Wednesday, 21st June) 

Dreamed up in Australia and inspired by Britpop, Sydney's Planet will show you a good time with their smooth pop-rock. Support comes from Girlthing DJs, Seaside and more.


EXEK + DEN - The Bald Faced Stag - FREE (Thursday, 22nd June)

Get down to The Bald Faced Stag for a night out with two of Australia's most interesting punk bands. Melbourne's EXEK and Sydney's DEN both make dark, distorted sounds that are guaranteed to please the senses live.

The delightful sounds of Panama are back, with a new EP set for release on Friday 23rd June via Future Classic. Get down to the Golden Stage for a special intimate performance.


THE DORKS + VIRAL EYES + LEGAL ALIENS - Marlborough Hotel - FREE (Thursday, 22nd June)

Apologies for the Thursday overload but there's more Melbourne punks in Sydney this week as The Dorks take to the stage in Newtown. Prepare for things to get a little wild. Support comes from fuzz heads Viral Eyes and Sydney's Legal Aliens.


THE RUMINATERS + SUN SAP - Selina's Coogee - FREE (Friday, 22nd June)

The Ruminaters are a band you really don't want to miss live. They're 100% full throttle from start to finish. With support from South Coast psych rockers Sun Sap, this is certainly going to be a Friday night to get on board with.
