Wafia XXIX EP Tour @ The Foundry
March 24 at 10pm

After making considerable buzz with the release of her debut XXIX EP in 2015, which features her impressively smooth single ‘Heartburn’, WAFIA is pleased to announce her national XXIX EP Tour this March – her first headline shows to date.

Wafia will be stopping off at the Armitage Centre (Toowoomba), Jack Rabbit Slims (Perth), The Foundry (Brisbane), Northcote Social Club (Melbourne) and the Newtown Social Club (Sydney).

Mexico City @ The Junk Bar from 7:30pm

So goes the opening line of the closing track from When The Day Goes Dark (Plus One Records), the latest missive from Brisbane’s Mexico City.
And what a wait it’s been, coming six years after the band’s sophomore album, 2009’s epic Brown Bird (Plus One Records).
In that time the lads have been busy starting families (three marriages and seven kids between them since 2009) and putting food on the table, while scratching around for time to record their third full-length record.
Combining the sombre moodiness of their debut album, 2006’s Black Comedy (Reverberation), with the maturing songwriting of Brown Bird, When The Day Goes Dark sees Mexico City dig even deeper into the stories that surround them.

The Oyster Murders @ The Milk Factory with Jive Canyon & Julia R. Anderson from 7:30pm

The Oyster Murders will be ending their two year gig hiatus with a show at the Milk Factory on Thursday March 24. They’ll be playing a host of songs from their upcoming sophomore album that’s currently in production. Joined by special guests Jive Canyon and Julia R. Anderson, this is a free event on Good Friday Eve.

Sticky Fingers @ The Tivoli

Some bands meet from lame shit like gumtree advertisements, while others are formed with a touch of the divine. One Summers night some years ago, on a drunken street in Newtown. Dylan Frost was wrapping up a fruitless nights busking. Paddy walked past, when a by-standing bouncer commanded he, “give the bloke some coin, brew!?”

Instead, Paddy and Dyz struck up a chat. Bonding over mutual hobbies like music and weed (the basis of every substantial friendship). Soon, associate degenerates Hollywood, Crabz and Beaker banded together, and STIFI was erected.

Bixby Canyon @ The Zoo with Surfin Bird and House of Giants

Bixby Canyon (is that a Death Cab reference?) are harsh and grungy. Their frontman probably needs a bigger stage, even with the mic stands moved onto the floor he’s bouncing off his bandmates and running off to do a lightning lap of the half-empty room. Their unassuming bass player looks like Michael Cera, so it’s an impressive surprise when he steps up to the mic and screams like his guts are on fire. – Jody Macgregor – Rave Magazine Feb 2011

Columbus ‘Replace Me’ Launch @ The Crowbar from 8pm

Brisbane punk outfit Columbus are one of the latest additions to the prestigious UNFD roster and they’ve now announced a March tour to celebrate the signing and the release of their brand new single, ‘Replace Me’.

Shane Howard and Dave Gunning have shared the stage but once, at Canada’s legendary Stan Rogers Folk Festival.

The Old Museum hosts two remarkable artists for one night only on March 24.

Brazen Bull @ The Brightside w/ Headwound The Pony and Descent from 8pm
