With a long weekend upon us, it's important to squeeze out every last drop of enjoyment. Luckily, as well as large events like Sea and Vines Festival there are a number of gigs sporting both local and interstate lineups to catch this weekend. We've picked out some of our favourites. In no particular order, here are our top picks this long weekend.
The Smith Street Band w/ Joyce Manor + Ceres - Saturday
Where: Thebarton Theatre
The ever charismatic Smith Street Band are this Saturday playing their Adelaide leg of their 'More Scared of You Than You Are Of Me' Tour. Supporting their new album of the same name, the SSB have amassed a huge national following in recent years on top of their home crowd. We can't get enough of Wil Wagner's passionate and relatable lyrics and it seems the rest of Australia feels the same way. You'll also be able to catch the equally emo Ceres and Joyce Manor of the US. It's pretty likely that frontman Wil and Ceres will also bust out their collaborative 'Stretch Your Skin' track. This will be honestly be huge, and with less than 200 tickets left, you'd best get your skates on.
Twinkle Daddies: Emo/Punk Night - Sunday
Where: The Grace Emily
As the event states, this is a great opportunity to catch 5 spirited, visceral rock bands for just $5. Tiger Can Smile, No Oaths, Superdose Gangway and GoonBomb will all be playing at the iconic Grace Emily. We've seen most of these bands and can vouch for all of them being individually brilliant, having them all together at $1 for 1 is just ridiculous value. After recently catching No Oaths, we were blown away by the wall of frenetic emo punk sound they produced, well worth checking out. Tiger Can Smile too offer a fun passionate punk performance. With fellow emo wizards Superdose Gangway and the raucous GoonBomb also on the bill, this'd have to be the best $5 you ever spend.
The Real Mac Dimarco? 'Head in the Clouds' Ep Launch - Sunday
Where: The Ed Castle
After just releasing their debut Ep 'Head in the Clouds', what better time to catch the up and coming The Real Mac Dimarco? Honestly we're quite intrigued by these guys style... and name. A fascinating mix of pop, rock and interestingly hip hop, these guys are well worth sussing. Supported by Baja Bleeders and Jonny Bobo, head to the Ed castle for a lively time.
