Jarrow and Good Boy: Fast-rising Brisbane trio Good Boy and freakishly talented Melbourne quartet Jarrow are about to become best friends.

Fri, Apr 28, The Chippo Hotel

At The Dakota: Hailing from tropical Darwin, have established themselves as one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Northern Territory with their addictive pop sensibilities and hooky, quirky lyrics and melodies. At The Dakota’s sound is influenced by the warmth and optimistic attitude that epitomises Northern Territory living.

The Velvet Addiction: Sharing dark pasts, it was from the rubble of family violence, broken homes and way too much of a good thing that The Velvet Addiction rose. The formation of this nostalgic, sweat dripping leather ripping band is proof that rock and roll can shake life back into an ugly soul.

Sun, Apr 30, Frankie's Pizza
