Swooping Duck

January Residency For Soul In The Basement
Hiatus Kaiyote side project Swooping Duck is Simon Mavin, Perrin Moss and Paul Bender. A 100% improvised music performance, no tunes, zero material to fall back on. Just ears, adrenaline, focus, being in the moment, pure improvisation.

Peter Bibby & Friends

Special Solo Show
By popular demand Peter Bibby (WA) will be performing a solo club show Friday January 19th at Cherry! After his backing band (The Dog Act) have headed back to Rinehart country, Bibby will be appearing on a Melbourne stage for one last show on this current East Coast tour.

And unlike most band rooms Cherry closes as late 5AM, allowing Pete and fans plenty of time to catch up over a coupla. It'll be a bloody good time for sure.

It’s also the sixth full-length album from New Zealand punk rock legends Die! Die! Die! Charm. Offensive. features their rousing new single ‘Bottlecaps and Phones (I Cant See You),’
