SEPTEMBER 6 w/ MLADEN LALIC MILINKOVIC (Lalic)
SEPTEMBER 13 w/ LIZ MITCHELL (Totally Mild)
SEPTEMBER 20 w/ SARAH MARY CHADWICK
Caroline No is Australian music and visual artist Caroline Kennedy. Caroline began performing in the post-punk world of Melbourne’s live music scene, where she wrote and sang for seminal bands The Plums and Deadstar and collaborated with artists like Kim Salmon, The Body Electric and Crow. She is currently a recipient of the prestigious Australian Postgraduate Award for her doctoral research at Monash University into post-punk music and painting.
Silver City Highway members Fergus McAlpin and Adam Afiff have crafted a delicate, dreamy album that leans right in and whispers straight into your ears. There’s a real intimacy captured here, and the short timeframe of recording (tracking more than 20 tracks over three days) has done wonders for the final result. All the imperfections are retained and the unfussy approach works well with the weary, confessional wordplay.
SEPTEMBER 8 w/ LIAM LINLEY
SEPTEMBER 15 w/ MITCH POWER
SEPTEMBER 22 w/ KATE ALEXANDER
Making no name in the not so successful hit band The Scouts, Sam Reiher has taken his musical career in a solo direction which will become official with the forthcoming LP, recorded and produced by Bill Chambers, set to be released in October. His style of folky ballads and up beat honky tonk tunes is hardly ground breaking but a crowd pleasing blend, nonetheless. Essential listening.

SUNDAY AFTERNOONS 4pm
SEPTEMBER 4: LUAU COWBOYS
The Luau Cowboys are a band that do an amazing range of songs and instrumental styles. They cover some vintage bluegrass, a bit of Hawaiian island music and slack key styles, some of the 30’s blues of people like Frank Stokes, plus a little Carter Family, some Cajun tunes and some good original songs.
SEPTEMBER 11: LINCOLN LE FEVRE
Born out of the freezing waters of the Derwent River, Lincoln Le Fevre is one of the best storytellers that you haven't heard yet. A little bit punk rock, a little bit country, Lincoln's voice has a raw power that can still convey the most delicate of stories.
SEPTEMBER 18: 19TH CENTURY STRONGMEN
w/ DAVID CHILDS
Sadpop cheiftans 19th Century Strongmen are back at the Tramway!! Strongmen have been on a gig holiday grilling their maiden 10 track sonic quesadilla... but soon they will squat enough bittersweet notes to get you pumped and veiny just in time for the glorious spring equinox (sept 22nd). The loveliest David Childs is playing set number one!
SEPTEMBER 25: THE MOCKINGBIRD
The Mockingbird are a two piece country outfit, born after a wave of inspiration from a Ryan Adams show. Friends for 20 years and after years of drunken promises of writing some songs, Monique Mietus & Matt Daley finally sat down with acoustic guitars and haven't looked back. Bit country, bit folk a lot of heart!.
