Where the bloody hell have you been? We hear you ask. We’ve been busy dear readers – gigs, elections, festivals, showcases. Even some time sunning our luminescent bodies on the beach but guess what -we’re back and raring to go for 2013 so WATCH OUT!! It’s going to be a big year!

So what’s on for February? Love it or hate it you can’t deny that St Kilda Festival hosts plenty of live music. Avoid the crowds and check out the live n local program or even better get deadly with the crew from Yalukit Willam Ngargee which runs the weekend before the festival. The Prince Public Bar is building momentum with something different every night of the week including our monthly St Kilda Baked night, which is moving to one Saturday every month and has been super fun so far with plenty more great live acts to come. The Espy is still doing what The Espy does best – hosting sh*tloads of bands. It’s still one of the best places to find up and coming young bands as well as all of your regular favourites.

Memo Hall (just off Acland St behind the RSL) is shaping into a wonderful art and music hub, this venue is going to be huge in 2013 and we can’t wait!  Lovers of the fabulous nightly evenings at Claypots on Barkly St can now also enjoy the fabulous nightly evenings at the Evening Star in the South Melbourne markets – great food, live music and an ace European vibe, mwah! Check out Veludo’s Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays for local live and even live dance music. The Vineyard Thursdays have been going off for punk and glam fans. It’s a great atmosphere, loads of fun and such a creative friendly bunch to crack on with.  The Elwood Blues Club has moved camp to the GH Hotel on Sundays and if you’re after big glamorous dance and drag productions then you can’t go past Friday and Saturday nights at the GH!

What else? Jazz at Grocery Bar on Sunday arvos, Fridays at Pause Bar on Carlisle St, and new nights coming from Lost Tapas on Barkly St. Make sure you don’t miss out on Rockwiz Presents Pure Pop’s Summer of Classic Albums.  They are selling out fast and every gig so far has been brilliant, so go get you some!!

One final note: Saturday 23rd February 2013 is SLAM Day – it’s like a happy birthday day for live music and is the annual celebration of the SLAM Rally of 2010 which saw thousands of music lovers take to the streets to show their support for live music. Register your gig! For more details about SLAM Day events check out their website at

No matter what you’re into you can find it somewhere in our town – it’s never a dull moment, so you know what to do, get out there dammit there’s music playing!
