RocknRolla is a new monthly event at Prince Public Bar that celebrates the grit and sexuality of Melbourne’s rock scene. This new night kicks off the Month Of The Prince celebrations that sees the iconic Prince Of Wales complex celebrating its history with some very special events.
The first RocknRolla is kicking off on Easter Thursday April 2 with The Tarantinos, From Oslo, Brunga’s Band and Ted Dempsey.
RocknRolla sees Prince Public Bar’s already seedy rock bar aesthetic fully pimped-out with the help of partner Sailor Jerry with their barber’s chair and tattooist on hand to truly ‘rock’ a punters experience.
The debut RocknRolla will be a slathering mess of rock and sexiness with The Tarantinos headlining. The six piece play music based on their fascination with Quentin Tarantino film’s incredibly versatile soundtracks, the band have become Melbourne’s go to party band.
Second on the bill is grunge two-piece From Olso whose frenetic rock has seen them become a live favourite. Inspired by the likes of Cloud Nothings, DZ Deathrays, And Violent Soho, they launched their debut EP at Prince Public Bar last month; the five songs showcase the band's penchant for tight riffs, party melodies and hectic drumming.
Brunga’s Band are a local four-piece whose sensitive, soulful yet complex arrangements belie a large and encompassing rock sound.
Opening the night is Ted Dempsey. This versatile musician has been in an impressive list of Melbourne rock bands: Jarvis, Shaman Son and Killshot. And, hot-off-the-press, he has just been named as Money For Rope’s new bass player and backing vocalist.
RocknRolla is the start of something special on south side so make sure you are there.
