Local gigs – 274

Friday 29th January

Melbourne prog-rockers Acolyte are celebrating their single ‘The Message’ with a tour. Lead vocalist Morgan-Leigh Brown, who is trained in classical music, will show you what being a rock-chick is all about.

Bald Faced Stag Hotel, $14.90


Saturday 30th January

The lads are back after keeping pretty quiet over the last 10 years. In their heyday Dallas Crane were one of the most energetic pop-rock live acts to play at your local. With their new album Scoundrels to show off I’m pretty sure they’re going to prove they’ve still got it.

Newtown Social Club, $23


Tuesday 9th February

Playing dreamy pop, Brooklyn band DIIV are touring the country for Laneway. Some might be thinking “not another psych band” but I’m just sitting here loving every wistful minute of it.

The Factory Theatre, $49+BF
