GIG GUIDE: August 2nd – 7th


WEDNESDAY: Comadre, Totally Unicorn, Quiet Steps, Let Me Down Jungleman, Idylls @ The Patch
8pm, $15, 18+

We love Totally Unicorn. The fact that the dudes are playing a hometown show again, just a matter of weeks after they decimated a near-sold-out Patch on their headlining tour with Ironhide, is cause enough for a mad celebration. This time, they’ll be hitting the stage before Californian punks Comadre, who, by all accounts, are absolutely awesome. Just to put some extra-delicious icing on an already sexy punk rock cake, Let Me Down Jungleman join Quiet Steps and Idylls on the lineup’s undercard.

If you saw Unicorn’s last hometown show, you know they’ve developed into probably the Illawarra’s best, tightest and most entertaining live act, reinforced by a consistent touring mentality and rewarded through support slots for the likes of Frenzal Rhomb, The Chariot and La Dispute. Their live shows are becoming the stuff of local legend, and this one is sure to be no different. Get along, get to the front, get a party hat, and bet amongst your mates at how long it will take for Drew to tear his kit off (usually takes around 12 seconds after he walks on stage). Gig of the week.
