Live on the Golden Stage

MCKISKO, SEAGULL & JESSIE L. WARREN

With creative relationships and aesthetic cogency dating back more than a decade, it’s something of a surprise that Brisbane’s McKisko (Helen Franzmann), Melbourne’s Seagull (Chris Bolton) and the Pacific Ocean’s Jessie L. Warren (Jessie L. Warren) have taken so long to arrange a tour with each other. Making up for lost time, it will be the East Coast’s rare fortune to spend an evening with this brilliant trio at Golden Age.

Their current tour takes them to Castlemaine, Melbourne, Thirroul, Sydney, and Brisbane including very special shows in a remote Victorian lighthouse in Point Lonsdale and on our Golden Stage — because sometimes things truly do take place right where they should.

JULES SHELDON

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS GOODNIGHT JAPAN

Two years on from his last album, Melbourne singer/songwriter Jules Sheldon has well and truly reinvented himself with his third album ‘Bloodshed & Serenity’. A major stylistic departure from the folk pop of his Spencer P. Jones-produced debut album in 2010, and 2015’s ‘Football, Trams, Parties, & Other Extended Highlights’, Sheldon here embraces synths and drum machines to make a lush and atmospheric post-punk soundscape to back his lyrical vision. Recorded and co-produced by Ed Lloyd (Jeffers Limit), and mixed and mastered by Snowy (Ocean Party, Jade Imagine), ‘Bloodshed & Serenity’ is as much an album for the dance floor, as it is for the contemplative moments.

“He’s like if David Bowie had a long lost child in Melbourne.” – Cassie Walker, Triple M

SOLID EFFORT

CASSETTE LAUNCH TOUR

To celebrate the launch of their sophomore EP ‘Echo Chambers of the Inner West’ on cassette, Solid Effort will bring their east coast tour to our Golden Stage. Known for their singular brand of ‘leisure-punk’ and their urgent, synth-streaked lyrics, this performance is not to be missed — with support from Sydney five-piece Greyhound.

“The group weaves a sonic tapestry made up of disparate threads of punk, post-punk and psych, where cryptic lyrics and social critiques add texture and emotion adds colour.”
— Weirdo Wasteland

SOFT POWER

EASY LISTENING ALBUM LAUNCH

Celebrating the launch of their second album Easy Listening, Melbourne post-rock jazz band Soft Power will make their Sydney debut on our Golden Stage, supported by Bonniesongs.

A three-piece instrumental outfit led by guitarist/composer Matthew Roche, Soft Power blurs the line between jazz and rock music, resulting in bittersweet guitar melodies, slow moving harmonic landscapes and a meditative live show that flows from groove orientated pop tunes to epic post-rock crescendos. Released on Newmarket Music on April 19 2018, Soft Power’s second album Easy Listeningis an improvised soundtrack to transcend the minutiae of daily life. With just seven songs we arrive at a broad yet idiosyncratic terrain, showcasing the rich camaraderie between members Matthew Roche (electric guitar), Oscar Neyland (double bass) and Chris Cameron (drums).
