Always bringing a visceral, concussive exploration of the limits of sound, Melbourne four piece, Fifth Friend will he filling the Workers Club with their dizzying mix of jazz, funk and psychedelic rock soundscapes that threaten to knock down walls.
Also on board for the afternoon’s debauche, The Cigarrillos combine strident, garage rock tinged blues guitar with intense, pounding drums, raspy vocals, and an obsession with the occult that borders on being unhealthy to provide a live show that’s a great time for all.
Kicking off the whole shebang will be the incomparable Sean McConnell. Best known as half of local blues legends, White Lightning, Sean will be knocking out a solo set to help ease you into an afternoon of feeling good.“
Formed in late 2016 by Gippsland natives Patty Goodman (vocals) and Tyson Taifer (guitar), metalcore outfit Mirrors quickly turned the eyes and ears of Australian listeners towards Regional Victoria with the release of their debut EP “Fool’s Paradise” in 2017. The 5 track release revealed the sound and delivery of a unit that had been functioning for many years, but after a mere 12 months of their existence they were invited to play alongside Parkway Drive, Architects and many more at the hallowed Unify festival.
Backed by fellow long time friend Jake Mackin (bass) and recently enlisted Melbourne based drummer Rob Brens, the four piece followed up their EP with the release of the single Circus, which showed a staggering step up in sound, maturity and production. From here, Mirrors set about bringing this evolution to clubs around Australia, supporting the likes of the Devil Wears Prada, Ocean Grove and Alpha Wolf just to name a few.
2019 sees the band’s ceaseless efforts coalesce with the release of their 2nd EP “Cold Sanctuary”. With their first EP establishing a commentary on the world around them, “Cold Sanctuary” ventures inwards. With maturity comes introspection, and this new effort delves into the psyche, trying to navigate and make sense of the chaotic chatter of our inner most thoughts, begging for reprieve. To compliment this unrelenting theme is a backdrop of earth shattering production, rivalling any band on the world stage, bringing their deepest, strongest and most dynamic compositions to date alive.
