The Po Boys + Miles Henry Trio :Hammond Session

Double header with The Po Boys and Miles Henry Trio

www.facebook.com/po.boys.soul

This is the rhythm section of local soul legends- Fulton Street. Get your stank faces on because they jam pretty hard.

Doors @ 8pm, only $10 entry, and music from 9-11pm. Git you self down for some funky hammond grooves!

THE PO BOYS:
The Po’ Boys are a collection of noise makers who have come together as a result of their mutual love for classic soul rhythm sections from the 60’s and 70’s. Drawing inspiration from bands such as The JB’s, The MG’s, The Meters and more contemporary bands such as The New Mastersounds and Vulfpeck, The Po’ Boys have profoundly explored the term ‘groove.’
Featuring special guests Rob Simone and Lauren Brydie.

THE MILES HENRY TRIO:
The Miles Henry Trio pulls out the tonewheel grease from deep in the pocket to bring you their original grooves, and pay homage to the likes of Brother Jack McDuff, Milt Buckner and Steve Jordan. Featuring Quentin Roth on Hammond, Miles Henry on the drum kit, and Angus Radley on bass, the trio returns to 303 for this sermon of the holy boogaloo. Special guest to be announced.

Dougal & The Sunken Sea and Ioda Rosa

Cruise down High Street and be whisked into the warm embrace of some perfectly moody tunes oozing out of the glorious doors of 303...

Ioda Rosa are still soaring off the back of their debut album "Ferris Wheel" released in August last year. They've got a huge catalog of new material to play; come and listen to their dark, swooning, rumbling post rock textures and be immersed in their emotional storytelling and dry humour.

Dougal & The Sunken Sea are going to be blasting some new art rock anthems - Come for the polyrhythms, stay for the feelings!
Witness our crunchy harmonic material and bonkers rhythms as Dougal wails about anxiety and the fragility of youth and grumbles about politics and existentialism.
We released a two track EP last year and we're ready to start trialling some new tunes in preparation for another release.
You'll hear some oldies, some goodies and some rearranged solo tunes, as well as some new bangers that you can bounce along to!

Tickets are $10 at the door.

They'll be trying out a bunch of exciting new material from their album-in-the-making, "Gourd in the Act".

Indeed, playing instruments made from woody cucurbits, they make a manic, organic, folk/funk philosophy to feed your wildest pumpkin longings.

Imagine Joni Mitchell and James Brown getting down in Bob Marley's pumpkin patch via the Muppets. Infectious eclectic beauty in the gourdiest of costumes.

Co-Headlining with Gostwyck on the Melbourne leg of their Riverstone Tour are local newcomers Bollard. Expect fuzzy guitars and driving rhythms influenced by bands like Dinosaur Jr., The Drones & Gang of Four, and lyrics that vascillate between philosophical musing and modern Australian storytelling.

Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan

Vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal sings his brain provoking songs using all sorts of vocal techniques, guitar, mbira, slide trumpet, trombone, chromatic harmonica and a loop recording pedal called Derek. And Kylie (who's played with Orchestra Victoria and the likes of Stevie Wonder and Barry White!) provides violin and voice in a perfect balance to Mal's nutsness. Their arrangements are intricate and playful. Imagine Einstein, Dr Seuss and Paganini making pancakes.

Around the world and into your brain, vocal adventurer, multi-instrumentalist and looping beatboxing songwriter Mal Webb sings his songs about all manner of stuff. He's like Bobby McFerrin, Aphex Twin and Cole Porter playing scrabble. Ebulliently eclectic. Nefariously varied. Family fun free from facile frippery. "You're a freak!"-Ani DiFranco

It is, we suspect, going to be good. The Monotremes have a bunch of old things you like and new things, Great rack are really rather fascinating, there will be beers.

Great rack and an empty club reverb
https://soundcloud.com/isoundlikethis/great-rack-and-an-empty-club

Great rack and an empty club reverb meet at the intersection of live acoustic instruments within the contained space of sound processing. Emily Bennett augments the banal, meaningful and meaningless voice beyond its social construct, unveiling a parallel world on her Korg signal processing rack. Joining her are enigmatic Maria Moles on drums and percussion and Adam Halliwell on guitar and synths, who together, negotiate a chaotic binary lens.

The Monotremes
https://soundcloud.com/the-monotremes/how-could-you-1

Attempted descriptions of the The Monotremes' sound include 'jazzpunk' and 'industrial cartoon'. Influenced in equal parts by J.S. Bach, Maurice Ravel, Thelonious Monk, Frank Zappa, Beck, and the gorillaz, the musical style of the band is just like a monotreme - bizarre in appearance, yet strangely functional.

With a line-up of weird people - Adam Cook on keyboards/vocals, Ed Farrar on trumpet, George Worthy on electric clarinet/bassoon, Spencer Nelson on trombone, Curtis Reardon and Paul Burke on guitars, Josh Holt on bass and Jonathan Griffiths on drums/percussion/samples - The Monotremes cover everything from baroque polyphony to drum and bass, psychedelic soundscape to Disney reggae, smooth jazz to funk, all in the same song. It's different.

See you there,
Great rack and The Monotremes
