Weekender Staff Picks

It’s that time of the week again. Smack bang in the middle. You’ve recovered from last weekend and the anticipation is building for this weekend. We hear you loud ‘n’ clear friends.

Scratch that itch with a gig or two at one of our venues.

RAGE 400 a surf video by Toby Cregan – House of Music and Booze

Kickin’ off the weekend early, we have the RAGE 400 tour stopping here at the House of Music and Booze on Thursday night. Hitting the road with a new Surf vid featuring Noa Deane, Creed Mctaggart, Wade Goodall, Jaleesa Vincent, Jake Vincent, Shaun Manners and more. Shot completely on the handycam, this is a raw look into the RAGE crews life at home. Music is coming from 1-800 Mikey & Perfect Actress. Let’s get that weekend blood pumping early.

Big Wheels – Queens Hotel Enmore

If you find yourself kicking around the Ineer-west on Thursday, look no further than seeing Big Wheels stripped back at Queens Hotel. It’s a new live series we’re doing. Perfect for date night or your mid-week hit of live tunes.

Mac the Knife – Labour in Vain launch – House of Music and Booze

A couple of weeks ago, Sydney garage-punks Mac the Knife shared the first offering from their upcoming EP, with the track ‘Labour in Vain’. The song is a battle cry to overcome the fear of judgement of others, and is a love letter to becoming a better self. They’re taking their emphatic live show to The House of Music and Booze this Friday. Don’t miss it!

VOIID – Lexapro Tour – Waywards

Meanjin/Brisbane-based punk prodigies VOIID return with their blistering new single ‘Lexapro’. The first single off their forthcoming debut LP, due early 2023. They’re hitting one of our favourite venues, Waywards on Saturday, with DUST and Boycott. This one is gonna be a killer.

Sydney best bois Organs are back for a belter of a show this Saturday night at Vic on the Park. If you’ve seen them live, you know what you’re in for. If you haven’t, Saturdays the day to find out. Hot off a string of shows in Sydney and Wollongong, the lads return to the headline spotlight to spread some spooky spirit on Halloween.
