The Eclectic Cherry

An explosion of filthy primordial guitars, liquid rhythms and primal voodoo jams, The Cherry Dolls are the pied pipers of those in search of the endless party and the eternal weekend. With two critically acclaimed EPs under their belts and more broken guitar strings and tour-damaged gear than they’d care to recall, the Dolls have delivered another sonic missile Slave in advance of their highly anticipated debut album.

Recorded in a frenetic blast of activity while the rest of town was sleeping off their New Year hangovers, Slave saw Alex Markwell of The Delta Riggs sitting in on production duties to capture a blistering live favourite on record. Giving Iggy Pop a run for his money Slave channels primal despair fuelled by a thunderous riff and frustration distilled into a tightly coiled track that explodes from the speakers.

A phenomenon in their hometown of Melbourne as one of the biggest live drawcards, the band have been making waves nationally with an ever-increasing fanbase packing out sweat-soaked venues and taking cues from The Cherry Dolls’ lyrical maelstrom of star-crossed lovers, broken hearts and hitting the bottle until dawn.

If you are in the mood for an evening of stellar homegrown rock delivered with refreshing bursts of swaggering firepower, they play the Hotel Great Northern on Saturday.

Jonny & Josh

For more than seven years Jonny Fritz (US) and Joshua Hedley (US) have been treading the boards of the world with their sensational brand of song, dance and good times.

Jonny Fritz’s latest album Sweet Creep is a modern-day classic. Produced by My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, it contains the musical wonderings of a very colourful man trapped in the modern time: tales of motel love, small dogs and drinking for happiness. Joshua Hedley has spent many years as the sideman to Jonny, playing fiddle and background vocals and the cuddly bear. He has recently stepped into the spotlight with his own tunes and become one of the most exciting artists to emerge from Nashville for a long time. Combine these two heroes and you have one very special night of music. At the Court House in Mullumbimby on Monday. 6pm.
