Set Mo to Go
Byron Bay Brewery | Sat May 5 | 6pm | FREE
Comprising Sydneysiders Nick Drabble and Stu Turner, Set Mo came together in 2012 when the two DJs, who’d often found themselves on the same bill, decided their sounds were so complementary that perhaps they should test how tag-teaming tracks back to back would sound. Pretty good, as it turned out. Studio forays soon followed, resulting in tasty classic house-tinged, guest-vocal-driven cuts including Comfort You (feat Fractures), Chasing Forever (feat Alphamama), Keep On (feat Erin Marshall) and the breakout White Dress (feat Deutsch Duke). Set Mo are on a huge tour and we are lucky enough to be able to catch them FREE at Byron Bay Brewery this Saturday. They will be joined by an all-star local lineup of DJs from the Roofless Record crew: Sammy K, Sammond, Silhouette, Chef De Party.
The Rails | Thurs May 10 | FREE
Over eight years and evolving incarnations UK-based Roving Crows have cultivated an arresting, singular sound that pushes the boundaries of Celtic folk rock all the way.
The band won International Artist of the Year at the Australian Celtic Music Awards 2017. The awards representatives requested they come to the 2018 ceremony and the band were delighted to accept and have worked hard to arrange a tour during May 2018 including a slot at the award ceremony. They secured British Arts Council funding to support their tour, organised several shows at the Celtic Music Festival, and collaborated with local musician, Chris Eaton of Round Mountain Girls, to secure further gigs in the Byron and Gold Coast regions.

You could sit down to watch this treat but as you recline, beware… because you may find that your feet start tapping and your hands start clapping and before you know it you may even find yourself participating at a moment’s notice, swaying, swinging, swooning, swaggering
