We’re welcoming Press Club on Friday December 13th to help celebrate opening the new location (only 400 metres from our old digs) for Cherry! Press Club is the fuzz-addled, kicked-in speaker bass of Iain MacRae, the razor sharp guitar tones of Greg Rietwyk, the merciless drumming of Frank Lees, not to forget the emotionally charged vocal deliverance of Natalie Foster. With 2019 came the release of their second album Wasted Energy, a studio effort that not only attained some fair ARIA chart success for the four-piece out of Brunswick (it crash landed as high as #15 propelled by an ever growing fanbase) but was the catalyst to embark on their second assault of the UK and Europe, including performances at Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as Reeperbahn Festival! Fuelled by the buzz-saw guitars on single “Headwreck”, the album thrust the group into life on the Australian and European touring circuits and received high rotation at Australia’s triple j and Fbi radio.
For our first 2AM Friday night show at the new digs, catch BADGERS live on the Cherry stage! Fronted by local stalwart Michael Badger (producer/mixer for King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Amyl & The Sniffers, You Am I and more!), the group (Miranda Holt, Eloise Thetford and Dali Platt) recently released debut single “Make It Rain” as a sneak peek into their yet to be released debut LP. For live music punters who appreciate the paisley draped pop rock of the late ’60’s and just generally a great live band, this group is one to watch.
