TOUR NEWS: Tonight Alive + Skyway, Ghostwood + Chicks Who Love Guns, Gossling, Comadre

Another mini-slab of tours snaking their way through town in coming months.

Tonight Alive are one of the country’s fastest rising pop-punk groups. They’re currently on tour with Amy Meredith, and will play the Unibar next week. However, if you can’t get to the show (or just couldn’t bear to watch Amy Meredith), the Sydney five-piece will be back in town come mid-July as part of their own headlining tour. Just announced today, Tonight Alive will hit the Harp on July 13th. Gold Coast pop-punkers Skyway are along as the tour’s main support. Tickets on sale tomorrow.

Another all-Aussie tour hits the Harp at the end of June. Sydney’s Ghostwood stop into Wollongong on June 30 as part of their ‘Stargazer’ tour, with tickets available for just $10 through Bigtix. Also playing on the night are fellow Sydney act, the very excellent Chicks Who Love Guns; these guys are incredible live, serving up a dirty garage-punk in the vein of Howl/Hunting Grounds or DZ Deathrays. Locals Carpet will open the show; definitely one gig not to miss.

Now, an international tour to tell you about; Californian punk outfit Comadre will hit Austinmer’s Headlands Hotel on August 3, as part of an East Coast tour, with Australian indiepunk group Quiet Steps in support. No word yet on tickets or sale dates, but keep an eye on the Facebook event profile if you’re interested.

And FINALLY, Gossling will play the Otis Bar on July 1. The songstress last played Wollongong as the support act to Oh Mercy, but she will return in a headlining capacity thanks to the increasingly awesome In Spite Of The Weather. Tickets are $10 through Moshtix.
