Decked out in traditional Day of the Dead face paint, Mexican rock band Los Mas Altos will headline the night with Fiery Latin rock for two sets of fist pumping, mosh inducing madness.

Saca La Mois DJ will provide support and transport the audience in to a tropical-space as only they can.

Staying in theme with the Mexican celebration, Day Of The Dead is a themed event that encourages attendees to come dressed as dead rock stars. The best costume will win a traditional Day of the Dead cake, and everyone is invited to contribute to the Day of the Dead altar (no candles or flammable items please).

Julitha Ryan Hitting the Road with Lucky Girl

Julitha Ryan is hitting the road with her debut album and some of Melbourne’s best musicians, for some dramatic, intuitive and unforgettable shows.

Ryan will launch her new album, The Lucky Girl this October at Northcote Social Club (17 Oct) and Pure Pop Records (Oct 28).

The 12 track debut solo release, is burning a hole in the mind of Ryan, as her impatience to play it live drives her up the wall and to dust off her clarinet and cello in the process, to add another layer to her enchanting live performance.

The all-star rhythm section combine with the vocals of Ryan and the work of the violinist and arranger Bronwyn Henderson to create a performance that at times borders on mayhem, but promises to always be entertaining.
