Winners of Triple J's unearthed competition and winning (earning through sheer awesomeness) a gig at this years Pushover festival we are proud to present Money For Rope as our headline act!
Money For Rope brings it every gig they play. What's "it?". "It" is groovin tunes, hard hitting rock, great vibes and an energy that cannot be encapsulated in such tiny black symbols on a bright white facebook event page. YOUR ONLY OPTION is to come see them or forever wonder what you are missing and why all your friends are raving about "this f**king awesome band!" Money For Rope*
*Not to be confused with Monkey For Rope.
WARNING: Seeing The Harlots live may include symptoms such as "uncontrollable movement of feet in a dancing motion, a wide smile across your cheeks, shouting and mild to intense orgasmic feelings in your loins". The Harlots now boast a self-recorded self-titled debut EP, a sizeable following and a tight, energetic, can’t-stop-your-feet live set. Check out their Lady Maria film clip on The Harlots' youtube channel!
A band whose live shows hark back to the classic performers of years gone by, with a fresh twist, bringing familiarity to the fore. As part of their flamboyant and eccentric live performance, vocalist Jack Byrnes leads the 5-piece effortlessly, but with dominance and precision. His live performances eerily send you back with visions of watching some of the greatest band leaders of our time. The band back Jack up perfectly ‘hitting the mark’ on all occasions as a hot rhythm section with unforgettable hooks and driving beats.
Van Myer blew the roof off the venue at the soft launch night on February 2nd and are winning a lot of fans every week, when you see Jack approach the microphone get your ass ready to move and groove, Van Myer are an extravagant solid talented soulful rock experience you have just got to see.

Dynamic duo's are not too few and far between, but the effortless and unique harmonies you get with identical twins on stage together is both rare and exciting.
Pat and Jack Pierce have had multiple tours on Australia's east coast winning hearts up and down the country with their blend of catchy roots and indie pop. This formula has proven the brothers are undoubtedly establishing themselves as artists to watch on the Australian music scene.
The Pierce Brothers bring an organic, natural and vibrant energy to the stage. Its that combination that has successfully earned them a place supporting the likes of Blue King Brown, The Beautiful Girls, Carus Thompson and Ash Grunwald.
