He made a name in many high-profile rap battles facing off with the likes of 360, Kerser and Manaz Ill, and as a performer supporting acts international acts such as Xzibit, Ghostface Killa and GZA. He's now taken the dive in to stand-up comedy and is making a BIG splash in Tassie, and ready to take on the rest of Australia!

Loose Moose + Tombolo + Back Pocket

Don’t put those dancing shoes away just yet… there’s another night of musical partying to do, and you won’t want to miss it!

LOOSE MOOSE are rolling with some momentum and once again want to set the table with some soulful and energetic grooves. Get down to their zesty rhythms and fervent sing-a-longs, blended with some dreamy ambient soundwaves that will have you second-guessing if you even need to go home at the end of the night.

Supporting Loose Moose is the bent psych-pop of TOMBOLO, who’s lush textures and absorbing fluffy chasms will be on full display shortly after recently releasing a fun and tasty new EP.

In addition, come and see the insanely slick grooves of BACK POCKET, a 5 piece that delves into a range of styles including r&b, rock, and a spattering of funk and soul.

Get some sleep now while you can.

Set times TBH.

Augustine Ang "Always Changing" launch

34624288_1665887553508207_7576225780754022400_o.jpg

This event takes place on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We respect elders past, present and future.

Augustine Ang launches the first single "Always Changing" off his upcoming album. There will also be a special screening of the music video for the single.
$10 entry to the cosy back room of Bar 303. Some pretty cool supports on the bill, altogether making a massive mouthful of 14 syllables.

3:33PM Sharks Country Explosion
Picture a Great White Shark wearing an Akubra with TNT strapped to its dorsal fin. That is what Sharks Country Explosion sounds like. From the deep cool waters of the inner north, Sharks brings you traditional country and folk with some bite.

4:23PM This Day Last Year
Solo music project of Australian songwriter Shannon Steinfort. Her first foray into playing guitar live, after having cut her teeth on the local rock scene as bassist in Melbourne’s three-piece punk gang The Girl Fridas.
The name This Day Last Year comes from Shannon’s zine series, which incorporates photography, musical recommendations, candid anecdotes and fragments of personal thoughts. Much like the content of her zines, Shannon’s songwriting is intimate and uncontrived, and often touches upon heartbreak and disappointment (but sometimes she sings nice things about her dog too).

5:23PM Augustine Ang
Lo-fi indie folk inspired by travel and discovery, isolation and familiarity, growth and decay, hearts and brains. Augustine is on a journey of self exploration through nostalgic and mellow tunes. Some say he's stuck in the 90s, inspired by artists such as Elliott Smith and Neutral Milk Hotel. Augustine's debut album is to be released later in 2018. He will be accompanied by Lachlan Cox of Smirks.

Cinecult303: 'Cohen & Tate'

33870897_10100272427791502_8369714516174307328_n.jpg

Oh ho ho, it's time for another gaze into the cinematic abyss with CineCult303. This June, we are proud to present Eric Red's COHEN & TATE (86mins - 1989).

A modern noir filled with existential dread, and a looming sense of doom, COHEN & TATE tells the story of two hitmen who kidnap a child after assassinating his parents.

Inspired by the O. Henry short story 'The Ransom of Red Chief', COHEN & TATE was the directorial debut of Eric Red. Red, known primarily as the writer of cult classic THE HITCHER, as well as Kathryn Bigelow films NEAR DARK and BLUE STEEL, delivered a lean and mean slice of cinematic carnage, and went on to have one of the more odd and tragic Hollywood careers.

Starring one of Liam's favourite actors, Roy Scheider (SORCERER; JAWS) and that Gamer Gate fuckwit Adam Baldwin (A Knob), COHEN & TATE was unfairly overlooked at the time of release, and deserves your attention, buds.

Come through at 7pm to grab a drink, have a chat and to snag the good couches for a 7:30pm start.

As always, a gold coin donation is require to help keep CineCult303 awkward and weird..

CineCult303 is a not-for-profit film night dedicated to keeping the weird alive. Gold coin donation for entry. All proceeds will be donated to local arts organisations to keep the weird growing.

Jesse McCormack + guests

mccormackjessepressphoto-bouzouki.jpg

Materialising on stage in a vibrant, passionate flourish of purple bohemianism, Tasmanian troubadour Jesse McCormack showcases his signature style of “Swedish-infused acoustic Celtic folk-rock” utilising a small arsenal of eclectic instruments and a voice that's been known to reduce grown men to tears and rowdy pubs to awed silence. He'll present a generous selection of songs from his new album 'Enchanted Forest', a fantasy/history-themed project which evokes imaginings of mythological creatures dancing between the trees, as well as highlights from his debut album 'The Day Before the Fair' and tributes to his musical heroes.

Taking place in the quirky front bar of 303, the launch will feature three talented special guests from the Melbourne folk music scene: Jess Foot (5-string violin), Sam Davies (uilleann pipes), and 'Enchanted Forest' guest musician Claire Patti (harp, vocals).

Tickets at the door: $10pp, or $5pp for a group of 10+

Griff - Aerial One Album Launch

29103829_403970646693113_6623573275400208384_o.jpg

Homebass teams up with newly established Corymbia recordings to present griff's new album - "Aerial One".

This is an album for those unfamiliar with the sonic sweet spot that is arrangement-driven electronic music, and for the intransigent characters who dismiss electronica for its supposed lack of musicality.

As one of Australia's long time purveyors of highly varied and unique music, we can trust this newest offering will please our ears time and time again. This marks the 3rd studio album from griff, a massive achievement for any musician's career and it looks like there will be many more certified classics to come!

The night will also feature support from Homebass residents

Hypnotech (Addictech Records/Addictech.com)
Kodiak Kid (Addictech/Omelette)
Auramechanic
& special guest The Oddness

All in the back room of Bar 303, where the bass will rattle your heart ;)

$10 on the door.

China Beach have been riding the waves, playing numerous gigs, festivals, parties, supports etc and have decided it is time to find a place to make a little party.
This is your chance to join us in celebrating the release of our first single, 'My Mind' at our first headline show for the year.
We want this to be a night to remember for our special friends so we have decided to bring in some fantastic support.

Easy Browns Truckstop Chicken Jam Band - Seriously fingerlickin music. Easy Browns are a wild chicken thick shake of Psychedlic Rawkusness. They will have you in a twist with their mindboggling use of time and are an original delight to behold.

Bōnewoman - Mixing up Psychic Neo Soul Jazz with a nice bit of thump. This group are making their own mark, the music will connect and make you feel good and they are sonically and visually super interesting. Get amongst.

29983353_10150938362939967_7264925365418962417_o.jpg

An eclectic but solid mix of Indie rock n roll, electro, garage/psych rock, 6' 7" drummers, little looped big bangin ukelele action from the 60's till now and projected into the future but with a retro fit. Soulful, funky, electro, acoustic etc. Too much to mention. What more could you want?! Come down to Bar 303 and gratuitously rock out without a care! The only regret you'll have, is if you don't rock on down to to Bar 303 avenue. You won't catch us with our pants down! Or maybe you will?!

Asylum Sis†ers & Giant Clam + Fritzwicky + Good Grief

29873213_1622001631201438_7616688699660119433_o.jpg

Asylum Sis†ers
A local 4 piece industrial metal electro band- Asylum Sisters. Originally from Los Angeles, these dirty talents have been around for a few years now and over the years not one show hasn't drawn in a massive crowd. They are extremely vibrant, great entertainers and fun enough to play for a massive crowd of alternative lovers. I can honestly say they would do amazing as a line up act. Not your average metal act, which is why they would be successful.

Giant Clam
Math-Prog 5 piece with big, wonky tunes, formed in 2015.
Featuring members from Grotto, Future Corpse, Lopaka, Space Cadet.
Things go from noodley to twinkly to epic but the band is mostly either counting while looking at each other or looking at the floor. FFO: Trailer Park Boys, Smokes, Other stuff, etc.

Fritzwicky
Formed in Melbourne in 2008, Fritzwicky bring a unique mix of influences together in a mix of experimental alt-rock. Fritzwicky have a reputation for unpredictable, high energy live shows and a penchant for not taking themselves seriously enough.

Good Grief
Shoegaze/Post-Rock 5 piece who play some gloomy stuff that gets big, while being haunted by the spidery voice of a talented vocal web-slinger. Featuring the entirety of Minorfauna as members.

Doors at 7PM, bands start at 8PM.
$10 entry or $5 concession
