Canned Heat is at it again, offering up the hottest local acts for the low, low price of free.

This week, Supahoney will be gracing the Yulli’s Brewery stage with a delectable mix of surf and bedroom rock that has the ability to wash a wave of calmness and peace over you.

Joining them is the incredible duo, Convenience Store, whose sound journeys through indie rock, post-punk, electronic and folk.

Lyre Byrdland is bringing the funkiest of vibes to Lazybones Lounge with their 10-piece (that’s right, ten) afro-funk lineup.

Joining them for equally good times is Ltl Geezus and Tommy-John Herbert.

CLAMM brings a certain energy to their music that makes me both excited and scared of the mosh pit that is sure to form at their show at the Vic.

Comparable to Aussie punk icons like These New South Whales and Amyl & the Sniffers, CLAMM is a tightly wrapped bundle of intensity that is about to burst all over Australia.

See them while they’re still free.

Joining them is the fierce and fiery Chimers.


Sax Fest 2.0

Saturdays are for the boys?

More like Saturdays are for BANDS and BURLESQUE.

The Duke is putting on Sax Fest 2.0 with a legendary lineup consisting of the leather-clad glamorous Bloody Legend, rootin’ tootin’ and boot-scootin’ Papa Pilko & the Binrats and psych-rock 3-piece High.

Joining them for a dance will be dive bar demon Billie Burnout, bubblegum-goth goddess Cleo Rapture and acid-tongued Amazon Thraxxy.

It’s not a night to be missed.
