THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
HOBSONS BAY COAST GUARD 11.20pm til 12.20am
PUP TENTACLE 9.40pm
Hobsons Bay Coast Guard are taking to the road up and down the east coast of Australia in celebration of their new 2-track mini EP ‘Get In Line / Big Tuna’. Hobsons Bay Coast Guard will be showcasing their signature variety-surf sound in the biggest and baddest rooms that the band’s ever visited.
The Hobsons Bay live experience is a well-documented phenomena in the Melbourne scene. Their music is fun, intense, and hard to define. Herky-jerky rhythms and jittery vocal chants might have you thinking about 60’s Surf-Pop, but if anything, they are a stellar update to the genre, compounding influences from Brian Wilson, the Kinks and the Zombies with long psychedelic jams and driving garage-rock rhythms. Simultaneously polished and careless, the band glide through the frantic transitions and stop-start content of their set by the skin of their teeth, rendering anticipation of their next move pure guesswork. Every track is a new can of worms, and Hobsons strut across multiple genres in their catalogue with a sincere but infectiously dramatic flare. If you go to live gigs to have fun (and like matching outfits) HBCG is the band for you.
This will mark the first trip up and down the sunny east coast since the release of their debut album in March 2019. Hobsons Bay Coast Guard have recently performed live at Bigsound 2018, festivals ‘By The Meadow’ and ‘Grampians Music Festival’ and an arty/party show at NGV Friday Nights series and can’t wait to scratch at that tour itch in October.
