Dead Letter Circus: High on the release of their second studio-length album The Catalyst Fire, the prog-rock princes will bring a show like no other. After the album peaking at number two on the ARIA charts, the boys from Brissy are definitely going to provide a stellar set of the soaring vocals from Kim Benzie as well as psychedelic guitar riffs. Expect some from the original EP as well as their chart topping debut album This is the Warning.

The Woohoo Revue: They have been described as “pandemonium in a pin-striped suit,” but The Woohoo Revue are most definitely as skilled as they are crazy. These manic Melbournites are bringing the brass with their fusion of dance floor madness and skilled swinging harmonies, with some tracks from their 2012 Moreland’s Ball. The guys have their live presence down to an art with a tour hungry work ethic in both their own shows and a number of festivals including the hallowed Falls Festival. This night is going to be mental, get your dance on.

On their biggest tour to date, you have no excuse to miss this show as they rock the venue to its core.
