St Kilda Rocks The Bowlo for SKAC



St Kilda Rocks

Friday 22 September

St Kilda Bowls Club

Doors 7PM

St Kilda has long been a stomping ground for dirty, take no prisoners rock n roll. Long considered the home of underground rock and the place with some of Melbourne’s most iconic venues, St Kilda Rocks continues the legacy of St Kilda’s claim to DIY, grassroots approach to putting on live gigs and getting things done.

Local live music champions Suzi Q Dhol and Mark Entwistle in association with St Kilda Arts Crawl have put together a bill, featuring musicians from St Kilda’s past and present, to showcase what St Kilda sounds like in 2017. It will take place at the St Kilda Bowls Club, a massive supporter of live music in this town. For naysayers that say St Kilda is dead, have a look at this line up.

On the bill are new comers Ghetto Blaster & the Finger Bangers and the Dead Amigos proving rock is still alive and well in St Kilda, punk tribute legends the Peptides featuring iconic names from St Kilda musical past and present, Stackhouse with their cigar box blue collar anthem’s, and internationally recognised The Mercy Kills. This line up as well as the other events as part of the St Kilda Arts Crawl show that live music is still alive in St Kilda and how important the arts and artists are in the community.

St Kilda Rocks is part of the inaugural St Kilda Arts Crawl, a local event promoting the wonderful art of St Kilda and its artists over three days. Lay claim to being a part of history by getting down to the Bolwo or one of the other venues showcasing this incredible event.

Catch St Kilda Rock at the St Kilda Bowls Club on Friday 22 September. Doors 7pm, $10 at the door
