The Lemon Twigs w/ Flowertruck + Betty and Oswald + heaps more
Okay so this is kind of cheating because this isn't in Newcastle, but (because of Splendour?) there's not much else happening in terms of live music in Newcastle this week. Well, there's always plenty of cover bands playing but that's not what this list is for. This line up is too good not to show off. For the full line-up and more info check out the event page.

Where: Oxford Art Factory Sydney
Tickets: Free but you need to RSVP here
