A very special show is in store for young people at the YACRockcafe this coming Friday at the Byron YAC with some heavy-duty hardcore coming our way from bands Vices, Surrender and Bodies In Barrels.

Vices from Sydney and Surrender from Melbourne, are both five piece hardcore bands currently travelling Australia on their Winter Break Tour. These two well-known bands are excited to be coming to Byron to play a free show. Surrender were originally from Perth and the whole band moved to Melbourne to further their music career.

WP VICESVices recently released their debut album Between My Mind and the World, 11 tracks of high-paced positive hardcore in March 2013 and are ready to showcase this album to the rest of Australia and internationally. Vices live performances are full of heart and energy, with brutally honest and faith-based lyrics combined with a live show which can only be described as chaotic.

Bodies In Barrels do not like to confine themselves to any one subgenre. They see their music as focused upon good old solid riffing and melodic groove, although these five mates from Brisbane do say that one of their major inspirations is the unstoppable force that is Byron’s very own Parkway Drive.

Expect a high-energy show from these three young acts who are all musically, technically and lyrically far more mature than their ages!

The YACRockcafe is on every Friday night at the Byron YAC and is aimed at young people of high school and uni ages. The doors open at 6pm, with bands playing from 7-10pm and it’s always free entry and free food.

The Byron Youth Activities Centre is a drug and alcohol-free venue.

The YACRockcafe has a Facebook page www.facebook.com/YACRockcafe.

YACRockcafe – Byron Youth Activities Centre – Free Youth Event 7pm Friday Vices + Surrender + Bodies In Barrels.
