Today is SLAM Day, so do your bit and support Australian music with a choice of over 130 shows.
The Save Live Australia’s Music organisation is celebrating independent venues and the future stars that perform in them with SLAM Day today.
So pledge your support to ensure that Australia’s music scene keeps thriving by giving artists places to cut their teeth.
Try some ambitious rock from Papa Vs Pretty, Cabins, and Palms at the Annandale in Sydney.
Valley Floor (featuring players from The Beautiful Girls and Angus & Julia Stone), Los Huevos, Race Of The Harridan, and Daves Pawn Shop play The Beetle Bar in Brisbane.
Throwback rock sisters and global gadabouts Stonefield hit North Perth’s Rosemount Hotel.
Help farewell Adelaide’s Jade Monkey with the hooky pop rock of The Sundance Kids, Raider, and Mere Theory.
Rootsy duo Busby Marou play the Darwin Railway Club as part of their tour of the North.
And we’ll be checking out the suave hip-swiveller Mikelangelo & The Tin Star at Melbourne’s Old Bar; electro nutter Spod and eerie post-rockers Harmony at Yah Yah’s; primal punks Primitive Calculators at The Tote; and maybe Cherry Bar’s Women In Soul special if we’re not completely knackered.
There are hundreds of other artists playing. See them all on the SLAM Gig Guide here.
