Great Gig Gideon

Posted on by Ian Gnatz


Massive props to everyone who came out to be part of Gideon’s 18+ event at The Crowbar on May 17.  Our American friends proved themselves once again as being one of the toughest acts on the hardcore music tour circuit with a powerful live performance in The Valley.

Of course we are also proud that our very own Bayharbour was invited to be part of the show and went all out as usual with a well received live performance featuring their latest single “Reawaken” from their brand new EP of the same title.

Thanks to Vices, Perspectives, Hand Of The Architect, and Vitals for their contributions to this show and making it something to talk about and special shout out to Misery Signals who are also on tour from the USA and jumped the stage for a surprise performance.

Of course it would not have been nearly as fun without … more...

Thanks Pav

Posted on by Mannequin Republic


A quick thanks to everyone who came out to see the double Save The Clock Tower headlining event last Anzac day in Launceston.

The hometown heroes put on two awesome back to back shows at The Pav (Lazy Butterfly) in Yorktown Square.  It was a sensational event that truly brought out the spirit of the local music scene and shows that hardcore music is alive and well in Tasmania.

Thanks to the fine folks from The Pav who gave us their venue, not once, but twice, in the same day.  Also all the bands that cranked it up for the 18+ show, including Hounds Of Hiroshima, A Day From Tonight and Zeolite and also the hot young startups that tore up the stage in the all ages show, Turbulence, What Lies Beneath and Burning Horizons.  A special shout out to Interview With An Escape Artist who played both shows with … more...
