Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September 2003, before being signed to Warner Music. The band’s big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self-titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In The Summertime (the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006).

Three more studio albums followed – Slideshows in 2007 (#4 ARIA Album) and Mousetrap Heart in 2010 (#14 on the ARIA Album chart) which included radio staples, 20 Good Reasons, Mousetrap Heart and Tommy and Krista. Their latest release, Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years, was released in 2015.

“We’re excited to be returning to the stage to help kick off Summer, this time with a fantastic mix of Merc club shows, festival dates and double-headline gigs” Rai Thistlethwayte said today. “Please come along and help celebrate the best time of the year with us!”
Australian indie rockers Midnight Alibi make rock music the way it used to taste; loud and dirty, in your face, adrenaline pumping rock ‘n’ roll!

Midnight Alibi formed in Albury NSW in 2012. Since this time, the band has relentlessly toured the country, independently released two critically acclaimed EP’s; the later, ‘Love Yourself Sick’ included the radio track, ‘Down The River’ which gave the band their first taste of widespread national airplay.
