Access-friendly label Off The List Records bring together Celiac and Between Mirrors for this special Brunswick Ballroom performance. Illness has shaped ‘every part’ of Celiac’s life. It’s the force that drives and the force that drains Miel Balestrat, this captivating musician that marries industrial, electronica and noise rock influences. Witness sprawling and dissonant soundscapes as she shares and explores conflicting experiences with disability. Non-binary dream pop band Between Mirrors bring their own unique perspective providing support in the form of pop, folk, and classical music.


Amongst the messy history of Australian Rock and Roll it’s rare to find a band who get to the point and nail that point all the way home as convincingly as The Dacios; clarity, volume, ferocity, a hard-earned swagger and a complete absence of posing or conforming. Join them as they launch their third album "To The End" in the esteemed company of Brick Head  (featuring Sarah Hardiman from Deaf Wish and Kat Spazzy) and the powerful dissonance of Tom Lyngcoln (Harmony, The Nation Blue).

The Dacios third album was recorded in April 2021 with John Lee at Phaedra Studios, with the generous support of Flash Forward.  Separated for months over lockdown, Bean and LJ constructed the songs remotely and have since had the great pleasure of bringing those songs to fruition with the band.

THE DACIOS first erupted on local stages in 2005.Their first dangerously flammable line-up boasted LJ Dacio (Little Ugly Girls, Bulls) on vox, Bean (Little Ugly Girls, Keith’s Yard, Bulls) on guitar and Robert ‘Pops’ Johnson on traps. Yes! They are a family band! Having joined the family on their second album, noise guitar maestro Bonnie Mercer continues to ply her magic. The formidable Steve Patrick (Synthetics, Dumb Numbers) makes his debut on bass for their upcoming recording along with Amy Franz (Super Wild Horses) on keys.
