Gigs guide – 242

Thursday 18th September 

Like other recent Australiana bands, Bad//Dreems’ lead singer lets his accent shine through and, against my better judgement, it really works. It’s garagey, outsider rock but it’s surprisingly heartfelt and honest. Bounce along and feel something.

The Venusians

Oooh, this is kind of interesting. They play surfer rock, but some of it’s really dark with these sharp note shifts. A bit like the Horrors; weirder stuff at times but livelier for the most part. Their stranger songs are the best, I think.

Round Mountain Girls

I can only find tracks of this band doing covers so maybe that’s all they do. Regardless, a heavy funk version of Wolfmother’s ‘Joker and the Thief’ is pretty fun and they bust out ‘Devil Went Down To Georgia’. Also ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ which is… odd.
The Vanguard, $26.80
