Introducing Lord Esme, the four-piece Sydney pop band making a name for themselves with their eclectic sound and playful approach to music. Mixing pop, rock, and folk influences, their music is filled with humour, heart, and a love of shandies and cardigans. Lord Esme have recently released the first single (“Shane Warne”) from their forthcoming album (due out later this year).
THE STICKER CLUB
The Sticker Club, from Sydney, have been playing their own songs for kids of all ages since 2012. Think the Archies-via-Chuck Berry. The band are lead singer Nellie Afford with Nic Dalton on guitar and bass, Ben Whitten on guitar, Damien Cassidy on Farfisa and bass, Alison Galloway on the drums and teenager Ruby Firmstone, who plays guitar and trombone. They have a new album out May (ABC Kids/Half A Cow) and and a single from it ("Choc Chip Choo Choo Train") is being launched at the show!
Like the circus, Angie Who creates musical experiences that bring families together with whimsy, folky, bluegrassy family music, approved by mums, dads and grandparents all over the place.
THE AFTER THOUGHTS
The After Thoughts are brother and sister Ruby and Oscar Firmstone, Alfie Jellett and Crimson Mackenzie. High school students in the Inner West, The After Thoughts met playing in a jazz big band, and bonded over their love for funk, indie pop and alternative rock. Drawing influence from the likes of Jimi Hendrix through to Drugdealer, their sound is funky, electric and always in the pocket.
Under 18s are welcome at the Petersham Bowling Club but must be accompanied by an adult.
The Petersham Bowling Club acknowledge the Gadigal of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which this show takes place and pay our respects to their Elders past and present, and emerging and extend those respects to the First Nations peoples of NSW and beyond.
