September 2011


Sierra Fin will be playing on Saturday 24th September at the Vanguard King St, Newtown. To celebrate the rave reviews for the Cautionary Tale of the Beautiful Blackout album, and for winning second prize in The International Songwriting Competition (instrumental category) for the album overture, Death By Alarm Clock, Sierra Fin will perform an intimate show at The Vanguard. This show will be without orchestra to remind people that they are, at the end of the day, an indie-rock band.

Smudge will be supporting Boston's Sebadoh in Sydney on Wednesday 21 September at the Metro Theatre and in Brisbane on Thursday 22 September at the at the Hi-Fi. Hurry as they are most likely to sell out.

Nic Dalton and his Gloomchasers are playing two shows over the next couple of weeks. Wednesday 7th September supporting Terry Serio's Ministry of Truth at El Rocco, 154 Brougham St, Potts Point. The Gloomchasers on at 8.30. Update: Kathryn the violinist suddenly got sick in the afternoon so it ended up being Nic and his Gloomchaser, which was Luke.

Cat the drummer returns from her o/s trip just in time to join her fellow Gloomchasers when they support El Duende for their Day to Day Dream album launch on Sunday 18th September at the Red Rattler, 6 Faversham St, Marrickville (next to the bowlo). Nic is proud to support El Duende as it is Daniel Morphett's band and Daniel was in the Craven Fops - Half A Cow's first release (the Pleasure 10 inch!). The current six-piece lineup of the Gloomchasers will be on around 8pm.
