Jason McNear's debut solo album, Harlequin Moon, is finally released, after a music career spanning more than 30 years. In this special Melbourne launch, the songs from the album will be brought to life by a full band, with the addition of cello on some tracks. The album ranges from straight-up rock through to some folk and ballad...and in one case even some gothic-western! What unites them all is Jason's unique take on life, love and music-making.

Supports will be Ash Archer and his live band, and Mer Morte. Ash is a charismatic and upcoming Melbourne performer who has already achieved numerous successes through his music. Mer Morte play captivating and haunting originals, with elements of contemporary, trads & roots music. They feature acoustic guitar and voice, harmonica, cello and cajón. As their name suggests, they delve deep into topics such as death and the sea.


Finishing off a run of shows around the country, ya boys Indiago are coming over to Melbourne with their enigmatic live performance and ability to talk your ear off til the cows come home.

'Overpass' is the guys first release of 2019, putting together the hard work that comes with balancing being in a band and living the 9-5 life.
