Ladies and gentlemen! Regular men! Children with fake IDs! Don’t miss out on the most potent dose of rock and roll you’ll find this side of hell. They’ve got songs to play all night longs: slow, fast, future and past, passionately frantic and cynically romantic. Tell your friends if they haven’t told you, if you don’t have any, they got songs for you too. People, these four poor freaks know one thing only. That’s making grade A rock and roll music for you to shake your hips to. So don’t miss out, come see the show before they implode. The Rumble.

Sunday, August 30 >>> Liz Stringer <<< Noon
With a reputation for utterly captivating live shows and a string of albums already behind her, Liz Stringer has established herself as one of Melbourne’s most exciting and talented musicians, which has seen her nominated for two 2012 Age EG awards (Best Female and Best Album) and achieve official nomination for the 2012 Coopers AMP for “Warm In The Darkness”.
Described by the Herald Sun as “an old-fashioned, Springsteen-style storyteller with a soulful, mature voice”, Stringer combines intimate, complex narratives with haunting vocals to create unique contemporary roots music.
Stringer has just finished touring her fourth studio album “Warm In The Darkness” nationally. The album sees a departure from the intimacy of 2010’s solo record Tides of Time in favour of a bigger, more bombastic sound, with horns, organs and guitars accentuating the rock-solid foundation of long-time bandmates Tim Keegan (bass) and Adam May (drums) with the addition of Van Walker on guitar. The album was co-produced by Stringer and the Killjoys’ Craig Pilkington, who engineered and played guitar on Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu’s renowned debut and has produced/engineered many of Australia’s greats.

Sunday, August 30 >>> Cory Zaradur (Inner Ocean Records) <<< Noon-2pm DJ Stage (Presented by Dominic Pierce)
Each track on “All That We Share” begins with the same consistent and progressive tones. A thick lethargic flourish. Cory Zaradur is forcing the listener to place themselves amongst any of the following cliches: a dense metropolis, a vast ocean, the arresting wilderness, or the unimaginable expanse of space. The result is a pressing and significant perspective. Rising layers of melodic guitar and minimalistic drum beats offer a contemplative refuge that ultimately leads to personal but synthesized placement. “All That We Share” found its beginnings in a single hand-painted cassette tape that expanded into Zaradur’s first full length release and the debut for Inner Ocean Records. The albums finale, “as long as space endures,” refuses to go beyond the blunted, murky soundscape it begins with. But, by grace of the methodical swells on prior tracks, this sound no longer contains an anxious dull ache; it is now comfortable, meditative and familiar.
