Jail Bird Jokers at Gertrudes! NEXT FRIDAY NIGHT! We'll be taking to Gertrudes Brown Couch in Fitzroy to polish off a bottle or six and see how far we can push our luck. The Creep in Suburbia wil be there too! He'll be the one in the trenchcoat.. In support will be firey Melbourne four piece Holliava. 'Antihero' is their five track EP and you'll want a piece of it after seeing these fellas live. Also making the trip down will be Grim House, Geelong's premier three piece alternative rock outfit. In ripped Jeans and bare feet, what else can you expect but a sweet and saucy take on grungy rock n' roll. (I want Chinese food after saying that for some reason..)
EP launch for 'Antihero', Holliava's first recording since bringing Beenos and Scotty Stone into the fray.....and it sounds nothing like The Fray. Going to blow you guys away!

Bio: 'Antihero' is the dynamic new 5 track EP that Melbourne based rock outfit Holliava have been threatening to make since they formed.

“Within the space of just four songs, this Melbourne-based four-piece outfit displays immense appeal. They have the songwriting guile to appeal to fans of the Aussie progressive alternative rock scene (Karnivool, The Butterfly Effect), the indie rock thing (Arctic Monkeys, The Killers) and lovers of a more mainstream rock sound (Foo Fighters, Incubus). And what’s more, on the fifth track of this, their debut EP, they reveal their mastery of a softer, more acoustic style, which could inspire the indie-folk/ pop set. These guys have seriously got it going on. On top of all of that, the songs are dynamic and compelling, the musicianship is exemplary and their production values rival that of just about any rock band doing the rounds at the moment. With the release of this EP, this band have just announced themselves as potential heroes of the local independent rock scene, however they are unlikely to remain ‘local’ or ‘independent’ for very long.”
