In what is one of the more upsetting stories of the day, Melbourne’s East Brunswick Club has announced that Oscar + Martin, Parking Lot Experiments and Milk Teddy will headline their last ever show. In a statement release in December, it was announced that the club was to close its doors for good, however now they have announced the last ever date; February 29th.
“It’s official! Oscar + Martin’s show with Parking Lot Experiments and Milk Teddy at The East on Wednesday 29th February will be the last EVER show at The East Brunswick Club.
“Pete and Pam, the venue’s owners, have thoroughly enjoyed their time with The East, but after many years in the industry, have decided it’s time to kick up their heels and retire. Unfortunately, the new owners will not be continuing the band room.”
As said in the above statement, the club will remain open, however no concerts will be held there after Oscar + Martin take the stage.
Continuing on in the statement, the current owners said that “Reflecting the history of the venue, we will be celebrating its last month with shows ranging from indie (Northeast Party House, San Cisco, The Paper Kites) to country (Jordie Lane, Davidson Brothers); from punk and metal (La Dispute [USA], I Exist, Whitehorse) to jazz and blues (Pugsley Buzzard, Geoff Achison and Jimi Hocking); and from local beauties (Dick Diver, Geoffrey O’Connor, Puta Madre Brothers, Oscar + Martin) to international gems (Yuck [UK], Chairlift [USA] and Active Child [USA]).
“We would like to send out a massive thank you to all of you who have given The East such a great wrap in your respective medium in the past, and can’t wait to work with you in another capacity in the future.”
