Outhouse is returning to Melbourne Music Week to close The Curtin on the 2020/21 edition. Bringing together some of our favourite artists to come out of Melbourne in CS + Kreme, Jonnine, and Third Space. The warped and introspective mountain magic of both Conrad Standish and Sam Karmel, both of whom have their own coloured musical careers, finally joins Outhouse as our headliners. Alongside is Jonnine, the front-woman of the lauded HTRK, who will be performing her debut live set after her moody and cavernous solo records ‘Super Natural’ and ‘Blue Hills’. On support is Third Space, one of Melbourne’s rising talents. Syncopated drum rhythms, nauseating time signatures, and back-of-your-throat drones – always a rush from start to finish.
Hasn’t it been a weird/unusual year. This time last year Weird Place would have unleashed the monstrous Weird Place Fest 4 and Dr Sure’s Unusual Practice would have launched the prescient ‘Remember The Future? Vol. 1’ EP - both to take place at the Curtin. It’s only fitting then that they’ve all joined forces for ‘The (Long-Awaited) Return Of…’ Dr Sure’s Unusual Practice kept rolling on through the brick wall of 2020 releasing a stream of singles and video clips, a 7” EP, the ‘While Aus Burns’ cassette - none of which got a proper send off, a real-life reception, that moment that liberates the artist from the work, an absolution! This is it. Blonde Revolver are the brightest outfit on the Melbourne scene selling out their first ever gig! - members of Future Suck, Gutter Girls, Alien Nosejob, Body Maintenance, et al have come together with a spark and vitality that only 111 days of lockdown can garner. Whether you’re hearing the name for the first time or you’ve been hanging for a chance to see them - This is it. If you’re waiting for an invitation - THIS IS IT.
