Doors:
5pm.

Buried Feather:
With a sound built on fuzzy drone and swirling keyboards, Buried Feather’s live shows have built a loyal following, drawing regular comparisons to Dead Meadow and Spacemen 3.

AVER (NSW):
Formed in the astral plane in 2008, AVER are a heavy psych band from the sun-bleached shores of Sydney, Australia.

Zong (QLD):
A giant ancient stone of unimaginable power and intelligence floats silently through space towards an unsuspecting primitive civilisation.

Turtle Skull (NSW):
Blending elements of psych pop and fuzzy stoner doom, the band have created their unique self-described ‘flower-doom’ sound.

Borrachero:
Borrachero have been around since 2012 and take audiences on a journey into a space vortex of fuzzed up heavy delay, catchy melodies and tasty grooves.

Pseudo Mind Hive:
Let Pseudo Mind Hive’s piercing solos, haunting vocals, earth-rattling bass lines and hypnotic grooves permeate every fibre of your corporeal form; like alien transmissions born of amp stacks and stomp-boxes, echoing through the foothills of Mars.

Nuada:
Sludgy, groovy B-tuned riffs, spacy guitar solos, and big hooks, Nuada are making their debut performance at Holy Smoke. Comprised of songwriter and guitarist David Milner, bass player Alex Brooks (both formerly of Citizen), drumming wunderkind Daniel Morassutti, and the inimitable vocals of Matt “Chappy” Chapman (My Left Boot). Nuada will be launching their first album this summer.

(Online tunes coming soon!)

Monarchus:
(mŏn′ärk-ŭs)
noun
1. Alternative noisy fuzz band from Melbourne, Australia.
