Sydney’s club night Rare Finds is turning 1! And oh my lord, the line up for their birthday party is delicious. Deep Sea Arcade – who have DJed for the event before – and Lime Cordiale will headline, and will be joined by Owen Rabbit, Good Boy, Hedge Fund, Lily & The Bellows, Billy Fox and Ross Henry. Quit drooling and buy your ticket here.


About to embark on their upcoming tour (check out the remaining dates here), Gang of Youths have announced their new EP Let Me Be Clear. The context doesn’t stray too far from their stellar debut The Positions, with David Le’aupepe sharing that it will serve as “bookend of sorts to my early 20’s.” They will also perform at the 2016 APRA award on Tuesday 5th April at Carriageworks, Sydney.


With single ‘Hopeful’ all tee’d up for release on April 15th, singer-songwriter Alex Watts has set up camp at Melbourne’s Grace Darling for this fine month. Tickets for the Monday night shows will be available for purchase at the door.
