Darwin Railway Club, 17 Somerville Gardens, Parap NT 0820

Get set for jangly pop gems from the Surf Coast of Victoria as Bones and Jones launch their latest album.

Five-piece alt rock’n’roll band Bones and Jones are well renowned for their unique brand of infectiously memorable songwriting. With two albums and a collaborative EP with Folk Bitch Trio to their name, the band’s output matches the frenetic energy of their live show, which has seen them support notable artists including King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, The Nude Party (USA), The Murlocs, Twin Peaks (USA) and appear at festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival, Meadow, Boogie Festival and more. Forming during high school in the Victorian town of Geelong and now based out of an old apple orchard on the Victorian surf coast/Wathaurong Country the band draws inspiration from the landscape that surrounds them and their decade long friendships. Their blend of country-tinged vintage rock is coupled with a contemporary energy that allows them to feel familiar without being stuck in a revivalist pigeonhole.

Don’t miss is when they tear up The Rails stage as part of their Love You album tour.

Support comes from local live music faves Crystal Robins & The Wildfires.

Adult $38, Concession $34
