Celebrate the launch of The Roller Den in Sydney this Friday!

We all hate the new Sydney curfews, this much is true. The fact that many hotels are shutting down as well has thrown the state of live music in the city into some dark water - luckily for everyone who still loves their live performances and parties, The Roller Den is partying the fuck on until dawn. The new venue, presented by Kingdom Sounds, will be hosting some of the best bands going about the traps at the moment on Friday night, kicking on until 8am - no curfew!

Christopher Coleman Collective touring Tasmania and Victoria in March and April.

Christopher Coleman and his 12 piece collective have been having a good run lately. Having performed at the Marion Bay installment of the Falls Festival last year, earning airplay on Radio Adelaide, Triple J and the ABC and now getting set to launch their debut EP, it's safe to say that the Christopher Coleman Collective are on to a good thing. From the end of March in to April, the band are aiming to go national through 2013 - catch them as they rise.
