The Fearless Vampire Killers

The Fearless Vampire Killers are a hot surfy blues rock band from Melbourne who love to jive and vamp. Founders Seán Ainsworth, Al Marx and Dylan Lieberman formed the group while attending high school together in 2005. With 'not so bad' instruments and regular rehearsals, the band soon started playing gigs, mainly at friends' parties and school fetes, but it wasn’t long until the band exploded into the Melbourne music scene impressing the real hard arse, glass-throwing punters.

Dead Beat Band

Hip shakin’ sun soaked bearded garage surf rock, washed up with a fresh love for whiskey wisdoms and one night stands. These romping dead beats are all about getting people off there seats, with shimmy sounds, just hanging to get stomped to the ground. ‘no shirt no shoes no worries’

Panel Van Halen

3 blokes from melbourne, old enough to know better but to young to stop. impure rock fury, been practicing for years and from the sounds of it need a couple more.... songs about cars, sheds, motorbikes, shouting at your kids/ being shouted at by your kids, riding motorbikes, being drunk, shit jobs, being hungover and a few sad songs about not being drunk... this is the soundtrack to coming home at 3am and tripping over the couch.

vi·gnette /v?n--y?t/ [vin-yet] Since their inception in 2006, The Vignettes have been rising through the ranks of the Sydney live scene with their twisted take on garage rock and visually entertaining show impressing all in their wake. But with a sound that would give any larger band a run for their rock n roll dollars, two is all it takes for The Vignettes. Born out of a chance meeting between Joel and Katie at a New Years Eve party, The Vignettes experimented with a number of different line-ups before stripping it back to only two.
