Straight Arrows brought their hard intensity and good energy that they have refined over their years playing on stages around the country. Straight Arrows formed in Sydney in 2007 and have since done whatever the F they wanted to do. They are a renowned DIY band that keep things in house and keep it honest for themselves. They have released a bunch of singles and EPs over the years but 2018 saw them release their first full length album ON TOP! It has all the elements of classic Straight Arrows with some big melodic vocals added to their fuzz intensity. This is a damn fun set to listen to and will make you feel like you are right there in the room with these gents.

Glomesh are a band from Melbourne who are full of fun and bright punk stylings. They perform with an exciting aura which makes you feel a bit more grander. The punk sounding riffs and power drumming are bound to get you moving as not only your head bangs but your hips swivel as well. The band are a bit of a supergroup with members from so many different bands but it all comes together to make a sound that can only be Glomesh. They have released a single and an EP and are a live act to be witnessed because they really bring the energy. I was lucky to witness this set and I can confirm the big riffs and the enticing vocals compel you to get up and to have a good old dance.
