Hey folks, Kimba Swinton here to put down a few words on the St Kilda live music scene.

It’s exciting to see The Prince of Wales downstairs band room in full swing with live music and performers seven nights a week (and free entry). Monday nights kick the week off with a residency by The Black Molls, featuring local icons Fred Negro and Dave Moll.

The Vice Grip Pussies are also turning the screw at the above mentioned Prince on Saturday December 1st, so hopefully you’re reading this on December 1st and can make the show, otherwise get down there soon for some other amazing live and local acts.

There’s some cool open mic nights around too; with Mondays at Dogs Bar, Tuesday nights at the Prince with Forte Jam, and Thursdays at Hotel Barkly.

The Vineyard Restaurant also continues its long running Tuesday night acoustic sessions from 10pm.

Thursday nights at The Vineyard are another great way to start the live music weekend early – each week three bands play from 11pm into the early hours, giving punters a taste of some great established and up and coming local acts.

The St Kilda Night Market is also flaming up every Thursday night throughout December and January. Positioned right next to Luna Park; it will add extra magic to the scene as the weather warms.

Pure Pop Records on Barkly Street is hosting some great live music over summer. Tickets are available now for the Pure Pop classic album series featuring bands playing their versions of chosen classic albums.

The Mercy Kills had a killer video clip launch at The Espy on November 30th for their song ‘Can’t Stop’ which is also featured on the soundtrack of the new Australian film Murderdrome.

The Memorial Theatre (or Memo), which, if you didn’t know, is situated behind the St Kilda Army & Navy Club on Acland Street, is now hosting live music and comedy.

The Lyrebird Lounge in Ripponlea always has a great vibe with live music each week – Thursday to Sunday. Painters and Dockers are returning for a show in January too.

The St Kilda Bowls Club presents Deep Down Underground on Saturday December 3rd, featuring:

The Exotics, Ash Wednesday, The Patron Saints, Space Echo, Vic Meehan & Dave Moll and The Waco Social Club – It starts at 6pm and costs $10.

Support your local artists and independent record stores such as: Record Paradise on Chapel Street and Pure Pop Records on Barkly Street.

There’s so much great live music happening, so see you out there.
