Old man shouts at cloud #3

At a beachside town a couple of years ago I saw a young couple dressed as Goths. Not as cathedrals in that style of architecture, or as members of an axe-wielding Germanic tribe, or as characters in an Emily Bronte novel (though that’s fairly close), but as the black-clothed, black eyelinered Emo youth of the 1980s and ‘90s.

Bugs, joining Seaside, The Violent Monks and Sophie Ozard to celebrate the Brewery Birthday at the Byron Brewery on Saturday

rewery Birthday bash featuring The Bugs, Seaside, The Violent Monks & Sophie Ozard

Byron Brewery | Saturday | 8pm | Free

The iconic Byron Bay Brewery are celebrating their birthday this Saturday night with a bunch of bands playing a free show!

When a swag of iconic Australian anthems were bought to life in 2014 by lo-fi recordings of songwriter Connor Brooker in his bedroom, Bugs hatched. Since then Bugs have continued to go from strength to strength by winning over new fans everywhere they play with their loveable brand of bashful, high-energy garage guitar pop.

After scoring Feature Artist on Triple J Unearthed and receiving a tidal wave of support for endearing single Neighbourhood the boys earned a spot playing the Byron Bay leg of Falls Music Festival over New Year – crushing it in front of an adoring early crowd of thousands. Continuing the momentum, a breakthrough year lies ahead for the band with a fresh EP and national tour announcement up their sleeves.

Bugs will be performing with local groups Seaside, The Violent Monks, and Sophie Ozard for Byron Bay Brewery’s Birthday event this Saturday. It’s free entry and kicks off at 8pm.

360 at the Hotel Great Northern on Sunday

360 at The Northern

Hotel Great Northern | Sunday | $40.30

Following an epic sold-out national tour earlier in 2018 supporting his critically acclaimed #1 ARIA Australian album Vintage Modern, ARIA-winning rapper 360 heads to the Hotel Great Northern in Byron this Sunday. 360 has just revealed his latest music video, a moving visual for fan favourite single Money, directed by frequent collaborator Rush Productions. Featuring the vocals of Perth singer/songwriter Sydnee Carter, Money has quickly become one of 360’s most beloved songs, finding him in peak form as a rapper, weaving in and out of personal tales about his triumphant rise and rapid fall, and the financial consequences and lessons learnt. Vintage Modern pairs 360’s trademark charm, honesty and razor-sharp raps with a lush sonic backbone of guitars and live instrumentation fused with contemporary rap sounds, replacing the heavy synths and electronic drops his music is traditionally known for. The album garnered a slew of enthusiastic reviews by music press around the country and mobilised his 10,000-plus strong Facebook fan group The Close Circle.
