No weekend plans? No problem.

Red Betty presents DARK FOMO

The Moonhops will get you on your feet this Saturday night when they bring their reggae beats to Bar 303 in Northcote. The fun kicks off at 9pm and entry is free. More info here.

Grand Baxter at Swamplands

Grand Baxter are playing at Swamplands this Friday June 21, supported by some of their favourite artists, Seb Szabo and Benjamin Trillado. If you like folk and country music, this is definitely one to check out. Entry is free and the show kicks off at 8pm. More info here.

The Clouds at The Corner Hotel

The Corner Hotel in Richmond is forecasting The Clouds for this Saturday June 22. This gig will be anything but dreary, though. The show starts at 1pm on Saturday. Tickets available via Eventbrite. More info here.

Chocolate and Choro at Kew Court House
