The Floodlights are one of the acts at Bangers on the Green

Bangers on the Green promises to be an absolute treat for the local music community.

Bringing together a day of awesome live Australian acts that you wouldn’t normally see all in one afternoon at the Shaws Bay Hotel, 3 Brighton St, East Ballina.

Featuring a seriously cool and diverse lineup of indie pop, rock ’n’ roll, alt country and indie folk artists from across Australia and locally.

This will be a glorious afternoon of brilliant live music featuring these four headliners. The Floodlights dynamic live performance is raw and intimate, intertwined with powerful outbursts and marching rhythms. Evocative lyricism lies at the heart of their songwriting and is enhanced by their unique sound. They explore themes of personal turbulence, national identity and the Australian landscape as a form of escapism. Floodlights write honestly and poetically in the hope that it resonates with others.

Brisbane/ Meanjin-formed psychedelic rock quintet, Nice Biscuit, are uniquely distinct in the mesmerising sonic and visual world they create. A swirling combination of krautesque bass and drums with powerfully ethereal dual vocals interrelated with heavily modulated, fuzzy guitar tones, the band create hypnotic psychedelia that sets them apart.

The Rions are four schoolmates from Avalon who show song writing skills and musicianship well beyond their years. After going back-to-back in consecutive Hottest 100 countdowns they’re set to continue their rise with upcoming single Scary Movies.

Blake Scott is the songwriter of beloved Naarm/Melbourne band The Peep Tempel. In 2020 he released his debut solo LP, Niscitam, which received much acclaim both locally and abroad. Niscitam is articulate and diverse, questioning the ‘everyday Aussie’ cliché.

The man is brilliant and remains somewhat underground to the general public. Blake likes to ‘feel out the room’ and let the energy breathe life into the live show. His smaller room shows can go in a full chaotic punk direction, or if the mood weaves it – the Buffloat Zen… it’s a meditative groove.

Other awesome acts include: These New South Wales, Workhorse, Luke Morris & The Heavy Hitters, GIMMY, Sweetie and Siobhan Cotchin.

Enjoy lunch and lawn bowling while soaking in the sounds of the Bangers on the Green with this dynamic and evocative set of musicians..

Tell your friends you love them at Bangers on the Green. See you there. Sunday 18 June –12–9pm. Tickets at Oztix.com.au
