Top 5 Gigs to go to this week, by Brooke / by Brooke Tunbridge

We're spoilt for choice this week, with not only gigs, but creative events for the This Is Not Art Festival and music festivals like Sweaty Palms in Erina, or Yours & Owls Festival in Wollongong where RAAVE TAPES will be shredding the stage on Sunday. I've somehow narrowed it down to five, but if you do a little bit of searching you'll be sure to find plenty more!

AJJ (Andrew Jackson Jihad) w/ special guests
AJJ heading to Newcastle all the way from Phoenix, Arizona. After touring with The Smith Street Band in 2015 they’ve released their sixth album The Bible 2. Catch their show before they head to Yours & Owls Festival over the weekend.

No-Fi Fridays: '97 Grand Final 20th Anniversary: Dumb Punts w/ OILBARON + S.M. Jenkins + Fuzz Sucker + Ill Sylvester
