The Nest SEC (second series) #1

The second series of The Nest begins on Saturday July 24th with a range of local Sydney indie-rock bands.
This series will have a greater emphasis on audio and video production and will be sure to make The Nest one of the greatest sounding and visually appealing live music haunts in Sydney. As per last series, all gigs will be filmed and recorded, providing awesome high-quality video clips to the performing bands.
The first gig of the series is kicking off with an interesting blend of rock through to country through to psychedelic sounds. All bands hail from the local Sydney area and are seasoned live performers.

This event will be hosted by CJ Shaw, a self-confessed ping pong champion/ aspiring auctioneer.

The Foreign Electric

The Foreign Electric’s soundscape is fronted by a unique complimentary contrast of the two lead vocalists; backed by intensely tight beats and funky bass; and filled in the middle with a psychedelic clash of vintage guitars.
Since forming in 2007, The Foreign Electric have completed a self produced EP, played shows at such notable Sydney venues as the Annandale, the Hopetoun and the Gaelic Club, and had a little airplay.

The MoMos

If you had a time machine, you’d be able to go back to 2002 and hear the early sounds of The MoMos emanating from the upstairs window of an apartment block-cum-rehearsal room somewhere in Sydney’s inner west. They have brought their own special brand of toe-tapping pop-rock into venues, entrancing audiences with their lyrical tales of everything from the knee grazing fun of floor sex to pool parties, The MoMos subtle combination of back-country twang with inner city sensibilities ensure their sound is one in a mo-million!

Indigo Rising

Indigo Rising has been described as one of the biggest sounds to grace any stage in Sydney. Having only been together a year, the band have developed a devoted following by making every live show a night to remember.
With a flavour derived mainly from 80’s and 90’s alternative rock, these four talented boys have created a fresh, blues based rock sound influenced by the likes of Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Chilli Peppers and Alice in Chains

Gig #4 – the aftermath

Saturday December 5th saw the very successful 4th installment of ‘The Nest’ All Ages gig series at Megaphon Studios. The bands were all dressed to impress and they put on a highly entertaining show. The studio looked amazing with a brand new backdrop banner and some awesome lighting and smoke machine effects.

Billygoat and the Mongrels closed the show with some hillbilly dance moves and a fully functioning bar for the stage. The barman, Rich, sported a polyester suit with a bright orange shirt and mixed cocktails for everyone!

Grace Before Meals added to The Nest #4 (5/12/09) lineup

The lineup is complete! Grace before meals are the final band to confirm for the exciting 4th show in The Nest series. Stay tuned for details to come.

Grace Before Meals

Grace Before Meals are a new-ish band who had their debut show in 2008 at The Cad Factory in Sydney supporting Mick Turner (The Dirty Three) and Jeffrey Wegner (The Laughing Clowns).
The band exist as a four or five piece featuring piano, xylophone, percussion, clarinet, voice, viola, bass guitar, trumpet and all manner of found things.
They combine their love for soft, creepy, beautiful music, with maddened carnival stomps.
Listen to all their songs, the next is often different from the last.


Kitty in the Well confirmed for The Nest #4

Kitty in The Well

Born out of a mutual distaste for both modern bohemia and musicianship, the three-piece, Kitty in the Well has been putting the ‘humour’ back in ‘humourless’ for three years now. This highly dysfunctional outfit nevertheless has a knack for bringing its crowds together in something like elation and something like biliousness. The group is known for big, haphazard arrangements, huge voices, and their no-holds-barred approach to genre and instrumentation.
