Jo Meares Band, Maladies, Golden Fang, Vertical Slums | Marrickville Bowling Club | Friday, 08. December 2017

Jo Meares Band - making a welcome return from yet another fab European jaunt and luckily for us with full band in tow. Jo has garnered a great reputation locally and abroad. It's little wonder why.


The Maladies - one of my favourite Sydney bands. These guys not only possess range but they also concoct an angular form of art punk that'll keep you guessing. Front person Dan Marando could almost be worth the show alone with his unique singing style and voice - just watch the dance moves. However, it's the back up engine that drives Marando to where he needs to be.


Golden Fang - it's been a productive year for this great 4 piece. They supported icons X a few months back and impressed everyone with their pop punk sensibilities and drive. They've also recorded a new album under the tutelage of Jay Whalley (Frenzal Rhomb) which they'll no doubt showcase so bring some dosh and buy a Chrissie gift.


Vertical Slums - post punk local 3 piece w/ great tunes that are catchy, angular, infectious etc. More recent lineup now features Reece from the very good Hearse Chasers w/Wally (formerly Momos) reverting to drums and Pete Strewdoll doing most of the lead vocals.


This event is free and proudly presented by Blunt Presents who acknowledge Cadigal Wangal clans of the Eora nation - the custodian owners of this land where sovereignty was never ceded.
