Hi people. I've got some cousins here from sydney wanting to have a great weekend out. They are rock n' rollers and have heard about the scene in melb and are envious. They have pinned me to a w\e of live music. Other than the Espy and the Tote, what are places do you recommend to see some of melbourne's best rock n' roll bands??? What are some of the best bands going around atm?
Cheers

GOOD LIVE ROCK:

DING DONG (probably the most cutting edge, and the chicks are always cute);
INDIE INITIATIVE on Thursdays at Revolver (also rating 1 with where women are concerned);
THE TOTE
THE CORNER HOTEL
THE ESPY (touch and go at the moment)

Townhall Hotel Nth. melbourne for up close and honest rock and roll shows. Public bar when it bothers to put a band on. Pony can be anything on any given night and it kicks ass.
The espy is touch and go because it's quality control seems to have slipped. i've seen some amazinlgy avearage bands there recently in great timeslots.

Zoquo are playing the Public Bar at the Espy this Saturday at 9.30.... no quality control issues here I assure you.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Jemwitch,
it's actually interesting you say that. I was there last week watching bands in the front bar and thought the same thing. Chances are if your band begins with "The".... you'll get a gig there!
Still a great venue though. I quite like the Public Bar, specially when there's a few people there...

Esoy Touch 'n' go:
They fucked the Public Bar's decor in a profoundly dodgy bros. sort of way. Ditto re the generic bands lately. Although there has been some incredible exceptions to the rule - Danko Jones and The Roys amongst others. The venue that has really eased off the pedal in the last few months is the POW - it seems they were so on the rock-pulse for awhile and now they've mysteriously dropped the bundle. It probably has a lot to do with the band-booker shuffling of late.

Another awesome venue is the Rob Roy - they've had some highly polished local acts there of late.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Does the Duke count. I like the friendly vibe.
Revolver on Thursday for II of course.
Greyhound as well.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Yeah, you wont have any trouble finding a venue. The city is crawling with them. From the Duke of Windsor, to the Greyhound, every street just about has its own live venue. Melbourne place has got to be the biggest rock centre in Aus, for sure. Fucken Sydney! I feel sorry for your cousins man, the place is overrun by dance clubs. All the old live venues are now infecto with techno. We gotta make sure that dosnt happen here.
