Psychedelic rockers Wolf & Cub are making their rounds along the east coast. Having wowed the audience at Bondi and more recently, their shindig at Sydney's The Standard, the boys will be making pit stops in Melbourne, Surfers Paradise and Byron Bay for their new Double A-side single “Shut Me Out // Got Nothing Coming”.
For those who have not yet had the pleasure of going to Sydney’s coolest new venue, GoodGod Small Club, you’re truly missing out, as I have been until tonight. A kind of Mexican themed front room with booths and a dance floor, and to the back, a secret door leading to the band room. A dingy little room where you kind of feel underground, there’s a very low roof and the stage is level with the floor. I love seeing bands in venues like this, before they start moving into the bigger, more commercial venues. It's intimate, and you feel like everyone in the room is your mate.
Wolf & Cub return with the phase shifting See The Light/All Through The Night -- The strutting A side sounds as though torn from a previous life in nineteen seventy-something, whilst side B is made for listening on some wide open road. Available from the Wolf & Cub Bandcamp now:

I made my way into the Oxford Art Factory just in time to catch one of my favourite Australian groups, Adelaide's Wolf & Cub. It had been a while since I'd seen the four piece, so it was a pleasure to see them back in action - 2 drums, 1 guitar and 1 bass working together to create some inarguably impressive music; the sort of music that in one moment has you dancing your face off and in the next has you grooving into slouched splendour. Just good old rock and roll, really.
Friday nights in Sydney are now filled with rock melody and rock-fit talents. Last Night, which is a Friday event hosted by Purple Sneakers/Boundary Sounds, casts a various bunch of artists and exquisite sounds to kick start your weekend. Not to mention, at a very reasonable price on entry ($10!!).
As I staggered into The Gaelic, already on stage were Step-Panther. With powerful moments, slashing strings and a groovin’ stroll to the snare, my night began with an astounding fire up thanks to this uprising Sydney group.
The Espy front bar has a long and storied history of being a place that everyone goes, for better or for worse. It is a place where people from all walks of life come together to celebrate their love of good times, cold beer, and in this case, incredibly loud guitars.
