Congrats, Melbourne! You’ve just scored yourselves a brand new live music venue, operated by the legends behind the ripper new Good Things Festival, plus beloved Brissie venues The Brightside, Blackbear Lodge & more.
Dubbed STAY GOLD, the freshly pimped space in Melbourne’s musical heart of Brunswick will unveil its brand spankin’ new band room and state-of-the-art sound system on Friday, 12th October with a massive free launch party, headlined by local punk heroes The Bennies.
DZ Deathrays will also join in the festivities with a DJ set, and there’s even more artists still TBA.
Located at 133 Sydney Road, Brunswick, the venue takes over from The Phoenix and also features a new public bar and restaurant, which are both due to open in December.
“Being a local Brunswick resident I’m so stoked to see our neighbourhood being at the forefront of the live music scene,” says Destroy All Lines’ Lydia Greenwood, the venue’s new booking-agent-in-chief.
“Brunswick has always been a cultural hub and we’re so excited to be a part of it and bring some of Australia’s best live acts through our doors.”
