The band with undoubtedly the shittest name of all time Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! have announced an Australian tour on the back of their very good recent release Get Lost, Find Yourself. Max Watt’s will host their headline show on Saturday October 3. Tickets are on sale now.
 
Don’t forget that despite most of Weekender-related festivities being sold out, there are still opportunities to see the international drawcards Iron Chic, Sidekicks and Modern Baseball on Monday September 7 at Northcote Social Club. Get tickets now, ‘cos this will be your last chance to catch these much-hyped Americans.
 
Gorilla Biscuits are returning to Australia for the first time since 2008. The ultimate New York hardcore band are being brought out by Resist and they’re doing a set at Footscray’s Reverence Hotel on Thursday October 1. It’s going to get gnarly up in that band room. Tickets available now.
 
Meredith Music Festival dropped a neat little lineup that will ensure the December festival sells out super quick (just for a change). Highlights include The Peep Tempel, Big Daddy Kane, Bully, Shellac and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
 
Northlane have added an extra Melbourne show to their Node tour after selling out their big album launch date on Friday November 6. A new show has been put on sale for Sunday November 8, with tickets available now.
 
Make sure you head down to The Old Bar this weekend to catch Clowns before they take off to the USA again.
