Lines of Flight are an improvising ensemble who work within a sometimes alien, sometimes familiar soundworld, built on the ruinous foundations of contemporary jazz, rock and metal, art music, experimental beats, and free improvisation.
This will be the first time we have played in the high-ceilinged ambience of Colbourne Ave. We’re really looking forward to exploring the room’s sonic possibilities- if you’ve never been to Colbourne, it’s a wonderful venue. Admission is $20/$10 adult/concession. BYO food and drink, and there’s plenty of comfy couches to facilitate the listening to of musics.

The band features Joe Cummins on trumpet, Casey Golden on piano, Alex Slater on drums, and Sam Pettigrew on bass. We describe our music as ‘heavy’, ‘intense’, ‘hypnotic’, ‘quite’, ‘lyrical’, ’emotional’, ‘understated’ minimal’. If you like music by Alasnoaxis, Miles Davis, Radiohead, Holy Other, Queens of the Stoneage, and Arve Henriksen, there’s a chance you might think to yourself ‘what the hell, Lines of Flight sound nothing like that’.

Black Wire Records, 219 Parramatta Rd, Annandale
4.30pm $10 ALL AGES

Black Wire is awesome. Tom is Awesome. Everybody that donates their time and effort to making such a unique and important place for live music is awesome.

Here are some awesome bands that will be performing for your enjoyment, with all proceeds going to directly to the best venue in Sydney.

Brought to you by Monolith Records, Tenzenmen, and the goobers responsible for SoundDave, Draytone Indu$trie$, we present the next in a continuing line of pun-titled music festivals that are significantly better than the ones whose names they appropriate: STEREOTOMIC!

STOCKADES (Melbourne)
The noodliest bunch of heshians you ever did hear. They’ve got a new 10″ out and it’s amazing.
This will make you want to perform anti-capitalist sax solos in your local McDonald’s.
Listen & Pre-order their 10″ here:

Featuring people from every good band ever, Seahorse Divorce have just released their debut LP through Tenzenmen and in doing so proved that XXXX is far from the best thing Queensland has to offer.
Get sad, then dance about it.

Dude’s guitar is made of metal, metal! I’d wager it was actually constructed from some kind of space-metal that doesn’t actually exist on earth, but that he had obtained from a rare asteroid that landed in rural Russia.
The result is very loud, very awesome music.

People talk about no bullshit rock, they are all full of shit unless they are in Firearms, who actually play no bullshit rock. And it’s pretty party. And the gig is BYO, so you can drink a beer every time Reg does his energizer bunny jumps.

Edward Bridge “Ted” Danson III (born December 29, 1947) is an American actor, author and producer, well known for his role as lead character Sam Malone in the sitcom Cheers, and his role as Dr. John Becker on the series Becker. He is currently starring in the CBS drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Little known fact: Ted Danson is actually a composite human (much like Captain Planet) that only exists when the four members of this band combine their special rings and make headnoddable – but at times difficult to nod your head to – tunes in a live setting. Witness the birth of TD!

Imagine Bob Nanna punched cones and lived in Newcastle. This will make you wish you had a high school sweetheart that you fucked things up with so that you could be all Perks Of Being A Wallflower introspective while telling your friends that this music should totally be the sound track to the new, harder hitting season of The OC. Because it should. Can you kickflip to the Shins? Get outta here!

Most sybian-friendly band in Sydney. Oslow are like a ballsier Get Up Kids, or a sexier Sunny Day Real Estate. Or something. They are amazing.

If the brothers Kinsella starred in Deliverance, and then forgot how to play ‘Dueling Banjos’ but continued playing banjos and were rapidly running out of funny excuses as to why they can’t play ‘Dueling Banjos’ when heckled to do so you might have something remotely similar to Pinch Hitter.

Doors are at 4:30pm, get down nice and early as there’s a huge line up to get through and this will inevitably hit capacity (we hope, so hesh).

Entry is only 10 bones, and that goes to Black Wire. Who rule.

The Finer Things and 3BS Records Present: LOST FEW 7″ Launch

On the 22nd June we’ll be assisting Melbourne artist LOST FEW in the launch of his brand new 7″ EP, out on Sydney label 3BS. Having taken his unique brand of dubbed out drums and feedback loops, LOST FEW, along with his many collaborators, has managed to pave his own corner of the Australian underground music scene, and will finally be making it up to Sydney for what will surely be a unique live experience.

Joining on the night will be Sydney’s own Scissor Lock – better known as one half of both Collarbones and Black Vanilla – he’ll be performing under his more experimental moniker; as well as a live performance by 3BS head Mannheim rocket, who’ll be debuting his new A/V live show in spectacular fashion.

Our good friends from Sydney collective Anomaly will also be present, Gareth Psaltis performing live and Jordan Peters DJing, along with a special set by Daniel Gottlieb from Spiral Sounds.
