Two festivals are on this weekend with great pun filled names, great bands and great dudes.

Sounddave
Why pay hundreds of dollars to see bands whose nostalgic value can be equally enjoyed after a six pack and a Youtube session? Come to Sounddave instead.

Fourteen bands for just twenty clams. But it’s not all about quantity.

A rare solo set from N. Martin (Sweet Teeth) is reason enough to attend. Also flying the Lesstalk flag will be Virginia Sook, who’s heading down from Brissy, and thedowngoing. No headliners, just a bunch of good bands and pretty ok humans.

Sorry, no overpriced booze. It’s BYO.

The full line up is:

Epics
The Union Pacific (VIC)
Palisades (VIC)
Make More (QLD)
Quiet Steps (QLD)
Surprise Wasp
Milhouse
The Berkshire Hunting Club
Chambers
thedowngoing
Nick Van Breda
Nathan Martin
Jonny Optional
