    Event description

    Special Guests:

    Empty Fish Tank is a pop/rock indie project fronted by Anthony Silvestrini from the Blue Mountains. Started in 2013 and drawing on influences such as Wilco and Crowded House, the band has played numerous gigs including supporting Lime Cordiale, The Cockroaches and Gavin Bowles & The Distractions.

    Debut album ’Same Old Same Old’ (2014) was mixed by Brad Jones (Bob Evans) and features fan favourites 'Are You Sticking Around?' and 'Long Gone'. Sophomore album ‘Commerical Music’ (2018) focused more on large band arrangements, showcasing more complex songwriting while still maintaining high energy, lively and fun songs. Mixed by Paul McKercher (Augie March, You Am I), and mastered by William Bowden (Gotye, Ball Park Music), the album included the amphetamine hoedown 'Good New For No One', the pure-form 60s R&B 'Nala', and the impostor rock 'Jynx'. Album 3 ‘Doge’ (2020) was recorded using only 1 microphone to tape-to-tape reel, replicating lofi recording techniques from the 50s with modern indie compositions. The album features singles ‘Nothing's Stopping Time’ and ‘Always, Infinity, Forever’ revealing a more honest, folk-acoustic vibe to Anthony’s songwriting. No.4 'Uno' (2020) is a collection of live solo arrangements spanning across the previous 3 records, recorded to tape again. Vastly different in style but a great lead into album 5 coming in 2021.

    2022 saw the release of a new kind of album 'Ladybeetle' (2022), which features storytelling through much shorter compositions like in singles 'Maybe Sorrow', '2 Months' and 'I Want To Believe'. 2023 was similar with a companion EP released called 'Little Chicken' (2023).

    2024 will mark the 10 year anniversary of debut SOSO, plus see even more music being born!

    Empty Fish Tank - think Pinegrove and Paul Kelly having dinner while listening to Iron & Wine. CHEERS!
