VULTURES OF VENUS http://www.facebook.com/vulturesofvenus Melbourne independent band Vultures of Venus take inspiration from seedy and speedy urbanity to create their unique brand of Electro Glam Space Rock. Born from the glam-infused wing of Britpop, they combine fuzzy stop-start guitars, silky dance beats, glistening keyboards and psychedelic vocals. Vultures of Venus have released two albums and are currently working on a third. Their film clips are found on YouTube. Veterans of Melbourne’s club, pub and festival circuit, there is a sense of fearlessness to the sounds and themes that is rare to find in an Australian band. Their energetic live performances are influenced by some of the starkest, most danceable and lascivious music of last century SKYSCRAPER STAN AND THE COMMISSION FLATS http://www.facebook.com/skyscraperstan Skyscraper Stan and the Commission Flats play troubadour rock 'n' roll, a flavour of music birthed in the musical mecca of Melbourne, Australia and unique to the group. Sensibilities gleaned from years of playing early American music collide with the big band sound of New Orleans and the verbose, cynical and often whimsical lyrics of frontman Stan Woodhouse. TEQUILA MOCKINGBYRD http://www.facebook.com/tequilamockingbyrdband Described as rock / pop / punk,Tequila Mockingbyrd's sound is like a cocktail of Clutch, The Living End and Arctic Monkeys with a chaser of AC/DC. That said, they have no shame in shaking their asses to some Gaga or singing along to the late, great, Winehouse. THE HEROINES http://www.facebook.com/theheroinesofficial The Heroines are a female-fronted alternative rock band from Melbourne. They are filled with contrast. As sensual as they are abrasive, and heavy as they are soft. The band has worked hard to combine elements from numerous genres, including rock, grunge, indie and pop, to create a sound they can call their own.

INTO THE GENRE BLENDER Brings together 3 vastly different live electronic bands to take you on a sonic journey through strange genre bending musical landscapes. (((VULTURES OF VENUE))) ** Electro.Glam - Space.Rock ** Born from the glam-infused wing of Britpop, Vultures of Venus combine fuzzy guitars, glistening keyboards and affected vocal stylings. There is a sense of fearlessness to the sounds and themes that is rare to find in an Australian band. Their energetic performances are influenced by some of the starkest, most danceable and lascivious music of last century. Download FREE EP http://vulturesofvenus.bandcamp.com/ (((MEN IMITATING MACHINES))) ** Glitch.Beat - Bass.Wobble ** Take live drums and bass and turn them on their ear. Jarman Donohue (Medical tech by day and jedi bass guitar wobbler by night) has come together with Matty O'Brien (scientist and jazz trained drummer) to produce a 100% live set built with the foundations of dubstep, glitch-hop and junglistic rhythms. The boys use a MIDI bass guitar and MIDI drums to control two laptops, allowing them to shape a sound free of pre-programming and done totally on the fly. This coupled with a custom light and projection show (by Tommy Gunn), wild stage antics, crowd heckling and a dislike of shoes makes them a unique high energy act. http://www.menimitatingmachines.com/ ((( LAZY BOY PROACTIVE))) ** Electro.Pop Rock** LazyBoyProactive is a live Electronica outlet for Melbourne based singer, songwriter, and producer, Ank Juwaheer. Ank's musical journey began with “ Ziza ” a rock trio formed in 1997 in his native Mauritius. Their first album Blue, released in 2000 sold 25,000 copies, the band relocated to Melbourne, Australia in 2002, however we divided by personal differences in 2003. In 2004 while Ank was studying music at University , he discovered Melbourne's vibrant electronic music scene, becoming a regular at outdoor festivals and clubs. LazyboyProactive was formed in 2006, and hit the live scene, but it wasn't until an intense 10 months in a beach house studio on a remote island in 2009 for the sound to really take shape. Ank believes that in moments of chaos comes real art. His debut album “Kaos Dream” is released through Tempest Recordings. http://soundcloud.com/lazyboyproactive
