Happy birthday Crowbar! 11th year in the biz - that's counting from the launch of the original Crowbar in Brisbane. Heaps of great memories from the Sydney chapter of this venture: it's a wonderful, constantly evolving community space, and the recent PA upgrade in the band room sounds fucking incredible. Congrats legends. We're mid-way through this week of celebrations, the remaining shows in the series are being headlined by Miles Away (tonight) and Bad/Dreems (tomorrow).

HEALTH (USA)

W/ Striborg

8:00pm Crowbar

JH

HEALTH: pummelling android industrial noise merchants. They've been around for the better part of two decades but particularly hit their stride with 2009's Get Color and 2012's slicker and even more abrasive Death Magic. Imagine Nine Inch Nails got into a studio with Ben Frost, produced by Flood... perhaps? Shout-out to Tasmanian legend Striborg for an extremely rare Sydney appearance, and shoutout to Shaun P. from the Mess+Noise forum days, who I imagine will be flipping his lid at this announcement.

CROWTALK WEEKENDER

W/ Sister2Sister, Low Stakes, MINERS, Bad Drip, NAIF, Sydneymusic.net DJs

1:00pm Crowbar

NB:

Huge, 'chaotic good' (their words) line-up featuring a real range. We back it. Crosstalk Records landed on the scene around the middle of last year and has quickly become an indispensible community hub in the form of a music and hi-fi shop. It's even got a vintage hi-fi gear museum room! They're top people, they've been throwing themselves behind anything community oriented that they can help with and it's delightful to see this celebratory Record Store Day weekend event at Crowbar just up the road.

ELECTRONIC BODY MUSIC

W/ TONE GENERATOR & The Body Without Organs, MILITARY POSITION, RBRNRSE

8:00pm Crowbar

JH

I've heard a number of self-described practitioners of EBM produce something that is very much just a synthed-up take on post-punk: very lyrical, melodic, drawing more from the lineage of Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Cure with a dash of the likes of Throbbing Gristle and Einsterzende Neubeuten. This line-up seems a bit further down the noise rabbit hole: have a listen to Military Positions, with a cascade of no-input effected blasts underneath a distorted vocal snarling over the top. Tone Generator & The Body Of Organs offer a blast of deconstructed bludgeons to the head with noise tone generators fashioned into various cuts and sweeps, with low sine waves throbbing underneath. In the blackened room of Crowbar, this might well just melt your brain in the best way possible. Want some catharsis? This might be your ticket.

W/ Knievel, Yeevs

8:00pm Crowbar

JH

We never thought we'd see it happen, but they're BACK. Led by Jamie Hutchings' singular brand of songwriting - that has continued into his solo work and with his newer band Infinity Broke - and Ben Fletcher's searing Jag tones. A classic band, and we get a fleeting moment to catch them live.

DJY

Adelaide pop-punk duo, tour constantly and have a devoted following. Playing in the front bar after Magic Dirt, just around midnight.

Magic Dirt

W/ The Laurels, No Cake

8:00pm Crowbar

JH

Now then children, if you don't know who Magic Dirt are: they were 90s and 00s legends that came up through the depths of Melbourne's indie rock scene and successfully crossed over into Triple J land, this putting them on the consciousness of broader Australia. Fronted by Adalita (now with her own respectable solo career). We love The Laurels and No Cake - with the former doing a form of garage shoegaze, and the latter doing bottom-heavy yobbo rock anchored with a big fat Moog. Both bands have Kat Harley playing bass and synths respectively. No Cake also have Pete Kostic, who plays in Front End Loader and Regurgitator.

Springfest 2022

1:00pm Crowbar

JH

"Rockstar School aims to create a happy, healthy, resilient community through music and keep alive the Australian and Inner West tradition of rock music." That's pretty direct and to the point! This is the music school's young performers doing their annual show. I remember when I did my first one at our country town's annual performance thing. It ruled. I was hooked. Such a fucken cool experience to have as a kid. I reckon maybe it'd be worth showing up and see what incredible talent is out there - and also seeing what they're about when they talk about "[creating] a happy, healthy, resilient community through music". Family friendly! All ages!

IRK ERX, Evil Roomers & X

W/ Grey Rocks, Slack Punks

6:30pm Crowbar

NB:

IAN ROBERT KRAHE (1957-78) was punk rock pioneer at the forefront of the birth of Australian rock, before his tragic death in 1978. His dynamic, intense and irreverent approach to guitar left its mark upon the music of Evil Roomers and X and earned him a place in Australian rock history. This gig will be celebrating the life, music and legacy of Ian on the day of his 65th birthday. His music will be performed by his guitar brother Geoff Holmes (Evil Roomers, X, Wildcat Tamers, Scattered Order) and Jim Dickson (Radio Birdman, The Survivors, The Passengers, Pubert Brownfridge) and John Butler (X) as well as Ian Krahe’s nephew - Luke Alan Edwards (Slack Punks)

This show will rule for anyone after a metal show tonight. Their new album RIPS and they feature former Sydney-sider Brendan Sloan, whose solo project Convulsing is also opening - the two Convulsing albums are some of the best death metal around and the live band features Pete Kossen from excellent defunct Sydney bands Making and Tanned Christ. Brendan also used to be in Dumbsaint.
