Jack Rabbit Slims - Tessa and The Typecast and Polar Nation
The East Side, is on occasion, privy to the same sort of quality local talent that turns up on the North Side of town. Tessa and the Tyepcasts are one of these quality local acts, that without fail have developed their musical skill set to put together a fantastic live show.
Making their way from their local stomping ground of Ballarat to Melbourne, they took whatever sets they could get in order to get as much live time as possible. As the experts would say, practice makes perfect and we’re not the only ones that think Tessa and The Typecasts are building up momentum to become a juggernaut of an Australian Band.
They get compared to Florence & The Machine, Regina Spektor and even The Strokes; This band is unique though with the addition of cello and jazz arrangements, piano driven indie pop sees them set to hit the rock n’ roll stratosphere.
Didn’t see them the first time they played? It might have been because either you were busy, or you couldn’t get in. That’s fine, not to worry because Polar Nation are playing a second and they’ve been busy, so it’s going to be even better than last time!
The high energy, fluid lyrics and spectacular hooks will be sure to make you move your feet. Electric beats, instruments providing funky lines, excellent bass and hip hop inspired lyrics are all elements that come together to make Polar Nation a party starter.
Both of these bands are going to be playing as festivals in the near future so make sure you check them out for a more intimate show.
Not Familiar with our residents yet? You should probably be ashamed of yourself. Jokes. You’re alright.
From little things big things grow, don’t be confused by these guys girth he is a cuddly loveable guy. Becoming a master of skillfully playing one song into another, then taking full credit for it Jesse Young is one of those rare DJs who are humble enough to play anything rather than what he wants to play.
Mr Devitt moved from the commercial hub that could only be described as a manufacturers place of operations to what is becoming the place of mixes and mashes, party and hip hop, dancing and disco. Don’t know him? Introduce yourself he’s lovely, promise!
Over the moon that this guy plays at our little night. Serato on the decks means that his mash up sets are getting to the point where you’re starting to hear one thing you love with another you adore. It just makes for good dancing and singing. This is what Jack Rabbit Slims is all about. Dancing and singining along to the songs.
This week we have an addition
Jordy Catalano is the addition of talent playing down the road (in either direction) Jordy is a hip hop connoisseur knowing and meeting Wu-Tang more than most people in this country.
