BangON is back and bringing with it a very special inaugural lineup for Mamma Chen’s!

Powerful Owl and their magical vibes will return to the west for the first time since Fempocalypse, pre-covid apocalypse styles. The joining forces of Mia Schoen, Bella Cullen, and Tym Krasevac is a thing of beauty and will warm your wintery souls.

Popolice have postponed a move up north just to be here! With new tracks galore this guitar pop hero will woo your hips and have them shimmying. CD’s + tapes WILL be available!

Do we need words for our opener Victor Campano? Victor is the driving force behind Edith Lane and a local who we have seen grow up from a mere bébé! We’re so happy to have Vic on this bill.

And YOU! We really hope you can make it and celebrate the return of BangON with these peeps we’re lucky enough to consider friends at a place we happily call home.

The entrance of Mamma Chen’s is on Albert St, with ramp access for mobility aids. There is an accessible parking spot and bathroom available. There will be seats available in the bandroom, and space for wheelchairs. There will be earplugs available and strictly no use of strobe lighting.

We would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and the Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation, the traditional owners of the land that we live and operate on. We would like to pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
