Hooley dooley, are the 90s back or what?
Just in case the return of mum jeans and crop tops weren’t enough proof for ya, peak 90s/00s nostalgia bands Wheatus, Alien Ant Farm, Hoobastank, Lit and CKY are hitting up The Thebby on September 27th, and the result will surely rival any Steve Stifler bash.
Any vaguely alternative 90s kids will remember having these 5 bands on high rotation in your Discman, drowning out the sounds of your parents lame music on car rides with tracks such as Teenage Dirtbag, The Reason, Smooth Criminal, My Own Worst Enemy, Crawling in the Dark, 96 Quite Bitter Beings and Movies.
Aside from at the high school formal/graduation of most people born between 1985 and 1995, songs by these guys have been featured in American Reunion (of course), 2000 rom-com Loser, Parks and Recreation, on video games such as Rock Band 2 and SingStar, and even one of the Daria TV movies (niiiiche). With collective sales of over 10 million units, MJR Presents is stoked to be bringing the alt-rock powerhouses back to Australia for the first time in years.
The running order will be different in each city, so you’re gonna want to get in early to make sure you don’t miss your favourite act.
Break out your Keds and tube socks kids, this is going to be one hell of a show.

Take centre-stage and embrace Glenelg's 'Open-Air Cinema'.
Well, it's finally over. Can you believe it? As always, the 2018 Festival season has sped by and we are ready to head into a temporary hibernation.
Sydney Jazz artist Emma Pask delighted the crowd at The Garden's Spielgeltent.
A couple razer blades and a flame thrower shy of being a thrilling magic show.
Heaps good band, Heaps Good Friends, drop heaps good EP!
A Tribute to Unplugged is a beautiful homage to a show that changed the music scene.
He continued to blur the lines between what had been rehearsed and what was a product of spontaneity, leaving you feeling like you knew the guy, not just his routine.
Filling up the tent like a warm hug from an old friend, the timing and dynamics clicked between every member of the band.
In 'Skeleton', Demi has ditched the conventions of stand up comedy to create something quirky and at times intentionally cringe.
