GIG GUIDE: October 3 – 9

The Patch begin their new Friday and Saturday music format this week; local acts in the front room for free, touring bands in the back room, and DJs playing after the bands finish. It’s a setup that Sydney clubs like Good God have found big success with, but only time will tell if this concept can translate to Wollongong. Aimed at bringing in different crowds to the venue, it does have the potential to transform The Patch into something of a live music and entertainment hub; let’s hope it works.

Also this week is Pour Habit & Smoke Or Fire playing Waves, with Totally Unicorn and The Conspiracy Plan in support; iconic Aussie acts X and Segression playing locally; Alotta Presha launching their EP; UOW band comp winners Rocking Horse & The Baby Dolls playing for beer-soaked punters at Unibar’s Oktoberfest party; and Jack Ladder and Ghoul bringing their own brand of experimentation to The Patch.
