ALLIE FALLS

Wednesday Apr 01, 2015

7pm to late

The members of Allie Falls have been wandering around their hometown music scene for a number of years, but it’s this new venture where they feel at home. Swiftly growing from an idea between Sam Perren and Ally Cole into a full collective, their penchant for storytelling is backed by a pop-fuelled soundtrack of captivating melodies and harmonies a-plenty. With their 2014 offering ‘Hunger’ cementing them as a newcomer to watch, they’re making their debut Black Bear Lodge appearance on April 1.

Joining Allie Falls are Outliers – a literal band of brothers who’ve toured the states, swum with dolphins, and been dubbed by Lindsay McDougall as ‘fancy pop’ – and Amela, who’s mix of classic songwriting, playful melodies, and multi-part harmonies have been praised and embraced by The Wild Honey Pie, The Music, and triple j Unearthed radio, among more.

Doors 7pm, and tickets available for $10 at the door.

Wah Ha Acoustic Tour

‘stardust singin’ out like comets’

A dream like trajectory can be attributed to Lisa Mitchell’s career thus far, with her knack for writing accessible and credible pop songs being a legacy she’s already achieved – quite a feat for a 24 year old. ‘Wah Ha’ has been heard around the world, starting with a chat with Richard Kingsmill launching the song on ‘2014’ on Triple J. Since then, the song has received regular play in the UK on BBC6 and XFM and in the USA on KCRW, specifically the ‘Morning Becomes Eclectic’ show with Jason Bentley.

Supporting Lisa, is the incredible EAST. Her new EP Old Age has already had two songs featured on Triple J – iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/old-age-ep/id897420920

Lisa is doing an intimate set of East Coast shows, tickets limited, so get in early.

HEY GERONIMO

Saturday Apr 04, 2015

5pm to late

Formed out of Brisbane’s burgeoning indie scene in 2012, Hey Geronimo have developed into one of country’s most innovative purveyors of warped, indie-pop.

Comprised of four genuine songwriters, the band’s previous four singles all achieved Triple J rotation, even though they were written by different members. This fundamental diversity, along with a wide range of influences from The Beach Boys to Weezer, has seen the band manage to steer clear of an apparent “indie sound” and craft their own space in the local soundscape.

After a pair of well received EPs, Hey Geronimo (2012) and Erring On The Side Of Awesome (2013), the band will release their debut LP in 2015. Having spent the last twelve months in and out of the studio with acclaimed producer Steven Schram (San Cisco, Little Birdy), Hey Geronimo has married retro licks with eccentric, bombastic production to create a record that has further developed their sound following the EP releases. This full-length release is set to build on Hey Geronimo’s substantial local and international attention, including major international syncs, festival appearances, over a million YouTube views, a coveted inclusion in triple j’s Next Crop 2012 list, and an entry in the US CMJ Radio Top 100 charts.

Much loved indie-folk band All Our Exes Live In Texas are touring Australia through March and April, playing headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth alongside appearances at Port Fairy, Blue Mountains, Fairbridge and National Folk Festivals.

They are celebrating the release of their new track Sailboat, the second single from their forthcoming debut album. Sailboat has that signature All Our Exes sound – lush harmonies and dreamy melodies – and touches on the melancholy of heartbreak and the hopefulness of new beginnings.

All Our Exes Live in Texas is a fantasy draft of Sydney musical talent – Elana Stone, Katie Wighton, Hannah Crofts & Georgia Mooney – all beautiful performers in their own right, here combining in four-part folk heaven.

On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, All Our Exes deliver tunes that are clearly crafted with taste, care and skill in the context of a spontaneous, playful and utterly charming live show. With four songwriters and four unique voices, All Our Exes make music that is refreshingly different, drawing influence from traditional four-part harmony and creating a brand new type of modern folk. Fair warning: You’ll need your charisma sunnies or you’ll walk out of the building a little bit in love.

BOO SEEKA

Friday Apr 24, 2015

5pm to late

This hip-hop-psych-soul/dream-tronica project started life as an outlet for a couple of musical experiments, a kind of soul petrie dish, a testing ground for new sounds. And it’s growing, fast. The duo have released their first single ‘Kingdom Leader’. A song that drips sexual foreplay. Builds and builds and subtly massages the soul. A combination of pulsating synth sounds that bed down layered textures of electronic bass and percussive beats. The sonic stimulations throughout the track enthral, and asks you to delve deeper with every second of the song.

The inspiration for ‘Kingdom Leader’ came from a garage sale, well, from a $50 vintage synth, picked up at a garage sale that sparked the first set of tunes. BOO SEEKA have been channelling a few musical spirits in the recording/writing process of the first single and EP, ‘Kingdom Leader’. The layering and experimental beats of Massive Attack, the cool of Mayer Hawthorne and Seed 2.0 Cody Chestnutt’s soulful vocal delivery. BOO SEEKA snaps up melodies and bounces them off hip-hop/R&B driven grooves – and beats that vibe.

Come join The Circus…

After spending six years touring the world with Aussie indie-popsters Little Red, Quang Dinh formed Naked Bodies in 2012 with a madman’s vision. Since then, the foursome have built a reputation for being one of the most electrifying and confronting live acts in the country. Their debut LP ‘Piranha’ is a chameleonic, genre-hopping explosion. To celebrate it’s physical release, they’ll be taking Black Bear by storm for one night only.

Equipped with a cigarette baritone, Dinh will deliver his wry, devilish lyricism over the band’s rolling ship-at-sea swagger. Gritty and gutsy guitar lines, fever dream violins, and relentlessly wild drums all contribute to completely unique energy that will stick with you long after the circus leaves town.

Supported by Suicide Swans
