Life Strike // Tragic Carpet

Life Strike are coming in hot from a run of east coast dates to launch their debut album "Primitive Future". With a live sound somewhere between The Clean and Wire, they'll bring their stories of our communal future wasteland direct to the Post Office Hotel for one night only... with support from fellow Melbournites Tragic Carpet.

Tragic Carpet are three humans making music about life and the nature of millennial existence. Half self-help book and half pop-punk bangers. They'll give you positive reinforcement with a side of thinking about your primary school bully, and you'll love everything about it.

We acknowledge that this event is taking place on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We extend our respect to elders past and present. Sovereignty was never ceded.

Rob Snarski Residency

Rob Snarski is the velvet-voiced troubadour and singer with our national treasures The Blackeyed Susans. He's also a part-time hired gun having toured Europe as guest vocalist with The Triffids and more recently performing with The Go-Betweens this year at Sydney's Grand State Theatre as part of the Sydney Festival.

 Last year The Blackeyed Susans toured nationally to sell-out shows with the release of “Close Your Eyes and See” - their seventh album and first in over a decade. Snarski also became a published author with the release of his whimsical collection of vignettes “You’re Not Rob Snarski - Crumbs From The Cake” with book launches throughout the country.

After 25 years as the honey-voiced singer of the Blackeyed Susans who boast multiple ARIA nominations, tours with Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen and Wilco, Rob Snarski launched his debut solo album, “Wounded Bird” in 2014. In 2015 he followed it up with “Low Fidelity”, a selection of covers with producer Shane O’Mara and in 2019 released his 3rd, “Sparrow & Swan”.

Expect an intimate evening of golden songs, haunting and elusive - from Rob’s acclaimed solo release “Wounded Bird”, mixed with shimmering new tunes, a chapter or two from his book, several covers from “Low Fidelity”, and perhaps a song from Chad’s Tree, The Triffids ... or The Go-Betweens.

He returns to the Post Office Hotel this Spring ! In short ... expect the past, the present and the future.

Justin Ashworth // Casey / Bebenek

An evening of exploratory, improvisational forms, veering through the avant-garde realms of ambient, drone, soundscape, and noisier possibilities. Artists weaving together live instrumentation, synthesis, field recordings and sound objects, using new and old technologies to bring you a deep listening experience.

Three sets, featuring:

Justin Ashworth (solo) navigating sonic memories with modular synthesiser and other electronics, in what becomes an inadequate form of time travel; complete with all the usual risks of such an adventure, with each trip to the past altering the future of the project.

Casey/Bebenek (duo) is a collaboration between multi-instrumentalist composer, Adam Casey (Seascapes of the Interior/The Boy Who Spoke Clouds/ex-Trappist Afterland), and drum/percussion prodigy, Julia Bebenek (Lijuka/Nandi). CASEY BEBENEK play extended free form improvisations that eschew entertainment, with a powerful focus on audience communion and engagement with our natural world.

The final set will feature all three artists in a first time trio collaboration.

FREE ENTRY


EFFIGY OF JEAN:
is a Melbourne based singer and producer of experimental electro-pop who has discovered that it is more economical to unload her anxieties onto a pirated copy of Ableton Live, than to invest in any real psychotherapy.

DARK JAMIE:
We all have a dark side we are trying to hide. But what happens when we can’t hide it anymore?
For DARK JAMIE, it manifests as a neon lit, smoke filled rock and roll show.
So bring your dark side and have a real dark time.

DEAN BARD:
Dean Bard comes from a small town in the Yarra Valley. After many years of experimentation, he has scratched out a space somewhere under the post-punk umbrella. Expect a mix of ambient crooners and robotic guitar blasts. Dean is mostly a bedroom artist who is excited to find a wider audience.

Adore // Rouge Wavs

For the first Saturday of October, The Post Office Hotel will host Adore and Rogue Wavs for a night of experimental rock/punk and weirdo bedroom pop.


Adore formed in 2014 as a family band of brothers George (Doll, Mess, Baby Roy) and Michael (Wumpy, Phonetic Orchestra, Tchake, Baby Roy) and their cousin Tibby. The trio set out to experiment with the rock band format, taking on a variety of influences. Jack Palmer (Bad Ambulance, Staunch Nation) joined in late 2018 on second guitar and the band released their debut album in March 2019, a gauzy and intricate post-rock record. They are increasingly incorporating hardcore into their sound and are currently working on a followup EP.

Rogue Wavs is the solo project of Loretta Wilde (Doroth, Hot to Rot) making songs and beats since 2012. Wilde has an infectious energy on stage that brings her peculiar chip-tune, lo-fi pop compositions to life.

Jess Ribeiro will be gracing the Post Office Hotel front bar for the extremely special free show on the 26th of Sept! Support on the evening will come from the sensational BABY BLUE - such a phenomenal double bill - not to be missed!!

Having been compared to the likes of Karen Dalton and Cat Power. Ribeiro's second, and most recent album Kill it Yourself produced by acclaimed musician/producer Mick Harvey, dives headlong into hazy rock, landscape ambience and melodious 60’s psych. Ribeiro’s songs are cinematic in scope: it’s music that travels, across deserts like a Western, through city streets like Film Noir. Narrative and poetic, Ribeiro’s lyrics are rhythmic and evocative, conjuring images that are dimly-lit, but nonetheless electric.

Fresh from an extensive national tour and critical appraisal of her latest record - Jess and her band will be performing and celebrating our latest public holiday.

Partick Wilson

4:30 pm16:30

Partick Wilson

There’s a tender, unmistakable charm that lingers in the work of natural-born storyteller, Patrick Wilson. Rich in craftsmanship, Wilson’s trademark sound and approach to songwriting are gifts only strengthened by the life he breathes into performance.

Catch Patrick and his band at the Post Office Hotel Sydney road on the 22nd of September playing songs off his forthcoming release

It was in 2010 that Wilson, a 19-year-old apprentice butcher who’d dedicated his life to ensuring the Torquay locals remained well-fed,
decided once-and-for-all to address his own hunger. Channeling the harsh romanticism of small-town life into writing,
recording, and a debut EP, Ryan the Moth (2013), Wilson began the painstakingly slow but ultimately revolutionary process of personal reinvention.

It’s not often that audiences witness an artist whose output is so grounded, personable, and heartrendingly honest. As it happens, there’s a distinct warmth and benevolence sewn deep within the lining of Wilson’s craft. We’ve seen it with the likes of Marty Robbins, Van Morrison, and Roy Orbison, all stars in their own right,
but it’s in Patrick Wilson that this unique class of alternative, old-time Americana finds its true north.

Wilson’s rich, even-flowing voice tempts light to even the darkest corners of rooms and implores us, above all, to place trust in the hands of its owner. Make no mistake: Patrick Wilson is a man of his word.

A seasoned sessional drummer and long-time guitarist for a conglomeration of Australian acts, Wilson has - in newfound resonance alongside his band, supported The Bellamy Brothers (USA) and Australian country heavyweight, Bill Chambers (Dead Ringer Band), and in 2016 appeared onstage alongside Small Town Romance, Bill Chambers and Georgia State Line at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

“I heard Patrick Wilson sing for the first time in a small studio in Melbourne. His voice and his
songs just blew me away,” Bill Chambers once offered.

Carpet Burn is a new band formed around the duo of Kayley (Minus Us) and Tam (Permits, Girlatones). They’ve recently enlisted their friends Amada (Gutter Girls) and Louis (Plastic) to complete the rhythm section and amp up the energy. The band play fun, bopable songs with plenty of melodies. They wish they were punks, but have so far only been described as ‘endearing’, ‘adorable’ and ‘cute’.

Opening the night will be Chimpanzee for their second ever show. Chimpanzee is the solo project of Jimi (Bananagun) who has stepped out from behind the drum kit to hold (and play) a guitar whilst singing. Him and his band of friends take no prisoners as they rock and roll through a set of classic rock leaving a path of destruction in their wake, go hard or go home. If Grant McClennan was a feral ape, he’d be Chimpanzee.

JXTPS // Lost Few + Jess Sneddon DJ set

Fresh from his European dates and his stellar Substation performance, Lost Few will entertain with moods similar to his recent album 'Between the Silence' on Southern Lights. Described as “ketamine apocalypse” (Groove Magazine 2019) and spanning the gamut of a walk in a rain forest to the haunting of viking horns, Lost Few will perform on hardware with elements of improvisation.

Jess Sneddon is a selectors selector. Hyperbole aside if one needs to know that obscure track a DJ is spinning its a good bet Jess can give you the answer. Being a passionate music lover and frequent concert goer makes her one of the most interesting record spinners in town, deep tastes and deep knowledge.

JXTPS is a live act mainly in the area of techno though not afraid to stretch the boundaries in pursuit of new sounds. Having a background in jazz then prog rock has lent JXTPS a wide appetite for moods and sounds

Spoonful - Fathers Day Set

Fathers of Melbourne. When you are asked what you'd like for Fathers Day this year, tell them it's not socks and jocks! Tell them it's Spoonful. What better way to spend Fathers Day than with a lazy Sunday afternoon Spoonful rock n roll show at the Post Office Hotel to remind you you're alive. Dads, Spoonful can and will reinvigorate you, after those countless hours spent with your kids kicking the footy, rushing around with pick ups and drop offs, stepping on Lego in the dark, handing out notes from your wallet and needing to dig deep after a catch up with your Uni mates the night before. Yes people, make your dad feel special and join the tradition. Come and celebrate Fathers Day with Melbourne's own Spoonful, at the Post Office Hotel, Sydney Rd, Coburg.

Sore Eyes // Howl At The Moon

Sore Eyes have amassed dozens of hypnotic new songs since their last Post Office Hotel gig. Currently recording their debut album, this band of melbourne front-bar troubadours features members of Ron Peno’s Superstitions, Pony Face, Black Cab etc etc exploring new, lyrical avenues.


In the past three years, Howl at the Moon released their second full-length, toured Europe and have just celebrated their 12th year together. Shows are rare beasts these days as they have taken a step back to breathe and inhabit that peculiar and transformative space where songs get written. Another batch of songs will be sprung on the world sometime in 2020, but for the time being they're returning to some of their favourite intimate venues before year's end.
