WEEKLY PREVIEW: May 23-29

GIG OF THE WEEK:

FRIDAY: Megastick Fanfare, The Parking Lot Experiments, Sealion @ Otis Bar
8.30pm, $10, 18+
Another rad gig coming up at the Otis Bar, for fans of experimental pop music. A whole lineup of up-and-coming Aussies, with Sydney’s Megastick Fanfare headlining as part of a national tour to launch their album, ‘Grit Aglow.’ Definitely turn up early for Sydney’s Sealion, however; they opened the show for Parades on their recent gig at the Harp Hotel, and were really excellent. They seem like a band just about to take off; more in the post-rock vein than the pop one, but they are a surprise and welcome addition to this show. Otis have begun to build up a bit of a reputation for hosting incredible small-name bands, and tonight should be no different. If you like your music with a heavy dollop of indie atittude, and a fair whack of feel-good pop and experimental, unconventional stylings, this is the gig for you.
