Following a bonza launch party in Sydney, Red Bull Sound Select is taking its show on the road and kicking off a new monthly series of gigs in Melbourne, packing lineups curated by the peeps at Chapter Music, I OH YOU and Laneway Festival.
The first cab off the rank is an epic punk-flavoured launch event at Collingwood’s Gasometer Hotel with a bill designed by the good folks at Chapter.
It will feature the soulful stylings of local headliners Tyrannamen, snarling Sexy Romance affiliates Sex Drive and the smashing Miss Destiny.
It’s all part of the energy drink giant’s Sound Select artist development program, and it’s set to hit Melbourne for the first time on Thursday, 29th June.
The series, which launched overseas in 2012 before finally making its way to Australia, is dedicated to unearthing new artists through its streaming sites and monthly gigs worldwide.
Melburnians can expect future gigs curated by IOHYOU (the label responsible for acts like DMA’s, Violent Soho and DZ Deathrays) and Laneway Festival, who of course unearth bright new talent every darn year.
We’ve left the best part until the end too. The tickets for the event are only $3 if you RSVP online and $10 if you cop one on the door.
Catch all the details below.
