After missing first act Palm Springs (one of three support acts performing alongside DJ Woody McDonald who played between sets), artist and musician Darren Sylvester brought his 80s sound to the stage.

Pikelet + Montero + Angel Eyes + Dick Diver - The East Brunswick Club, Melbourne (13.05.11)

Local group Montero kicked off the night with a short set that was entertaining, although probably not in the way the band members intended.

Making the best of having a small crowd to entertain, their lead singer danced wildly around with a tambourine before getting down on his knees, seemingly overcome with emotion and moved onto the floor of the band room to sing their last song "Gentlemen Pie".
