Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it is August! We’re almost out of the winter, and what better way to celebrate that than going out and seeing some live music? These are our top picks of gigs in the upcoming month!
2 August, Corner Hotel
Not only of Melbourne’s best, but one of the best deep funk bands in the world, The Bamboos are just a lot of fun. They are playing as part of a fairly big lineup, so it’s sure to be a great show!
3 August, Caravan Music Club
Harry Manx is a Blues guitarist who plays a Mohan Veena, which is a cross between a guitar and a sitar. They should have called it a Gui-tar. Or a Si-tar.
Wagons (w Broads)
8 August, Caravan Music Club
Gnarly neo-country locals Wagons are developing a killer reputation. They put on a killer show full of raw energy and whiskey.
9 August, The Substation
Look at that, Wagons is playing somewhere else! Wow.
9 August, Festival Hall
These infectious indietronic rockers are fresh off a headline set at Glastonbury have been described as guardians of rock’s fundamental ridiculousness. Enough said.
18 & 21 August, Palais Theatre
Bob Dylan is an American inventor and businessman. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. (Yeah, we figured this artist didn’t need an introduction, so we described another American icon, guess who!)
