Dave Graney and Clare Moore

16 November 1926 Hyam Street

Music drawn from a lifetime in rock'n'roll culture. Dave Graney is an ARIA Award-winning singer, songwriter and guitarist. Clare Moore is a songwriter, arranger and producer who plays drums, keyboard and sings. From their beginnings in Adelaide via Melbourne via London post-punk band The Moodists, Dave and Clare’s creative partnership has spanned countless projects including White Buffaloes, The Coral Snakes and The Lurid Yellow Mist. The pair are playing national dates for their latest album titled One Million Years DC: an album of songs rather than a representation of a band. It’s all to do with their sensibility. They are rock’n’roll people and are steeped in rock’n’roll culture. They will be playing songs from across their career and also nods to artists who have inspired them. See Eventfinda for more information.

Bugs - Self Help Tour

17 November 193 Flinders Street

Hailing from Brisbane, Bugs are a lighthearted group of mates who find joy in crafting infectiously happy pop music, and packaging it up with a dose of honest songwriting. 2018 has served as their most jam-packed year to date, with the band scoring an opening slot at Falls Festival after a triple j unearthed win, as well as supporting USA legends Cloud Nothings, and Aussie heavyweights British India, The Hard Aches, Alex Lahey and WAAX. Off the back of their grippingly honest millennial fan-favourite Neighbourhood, the band also delivered their engaging and animated live show to crowds at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl and Melbourne Music Week. See Eventfinda for more information.
