Underground moving music party rockers, BOILER ROOM are coming back to town. They came a few years ago and captured a great slice of Melbourne Soul and Electronic sounds. They are back again to do it again. On Thursday they begin with a trip to 3RRRfm and will be joining me on the radio for a quick chat.
Their first show is on Thursday evening at Rooftop. Starting at 3.30pm, they got Chet Faker, Andras Fox & Oscar Key Sung, Fantastic Man and Andee Frost doing it.
Then Friday starting at 11pm there is Recloose, Touch Sensitive, Otologic and a live set from Sleep D!
Boiler Room will then pop to Northside on Sunday afternoon to eyeball the spot.
Bradley Zero is also playing with AWESOME TAPES FROM AFRICA and Jimmy James, Edd Fisher and Andy Hart to kick off the birthday week for Section 8 on SUNDAY.
This show is now on at 170 RUSSELL STREET
