As the weather gets colder in Sydney, it’s getting harder and harder to get out of bed in the morning, but there’s still plenty to do when what’s left of the sun sets at night. The Oxford Art Factory is pleased to announce a showcase event for June with a line-up which provides a fairly compelling motivation to get out and enjoy the amazing local music that our city has to offer.
On Wednesday 16th June, you can enjoy the dulcet tones of Bridezilla, Domeyko/Gonzalez and Step-Panther at the Oxford Art Factory, for a fairly modest $5 cover charge.
Bridezilla are currently wrapping up an epic tour of the UK, and this will be your first chance to see what the girls have learned on their travels. The five-piece have inherited the introverted lyricism and dark atmospherics of our nation’s rock tradition, and combine it with a bustling instrumental beauty that makes them one of the most compelling new Australian bands in years.
The dynamic duo of Domeyko/Gonzalez have scrapped the presence of an extensive line-up of band members, instead employing two large multi-instrument workstations. Harnessing the sonic assault of an elegantly devised set of pedals, samplers, beats and synths, Domeyko/Gonzalez create a fresh take on the shoegaze garage band.
Step-Panther are a spirited new surf-rock ‘n’ post-punk trio from Sydney. They have just released a debut 5-track EP titled ‘Surf’, a sand-between-your-toes sensation that summons up the spirits of Jonathan Richman, Black Lips, The Shadows and The Soft Pack.
