Graveyard Train @ Garden Party (Southbank)

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This summer, a vacant lot in Southbank becomes your backyard – that is, if your backyard is home to some of the biggest names in Australian and international indie, electro and soul music. Astroturf and street art, deck-chairs and DJs, flowers and funk. This is the place to spend warm summer evenings.

The Garden Party is the outdoor music festival with a difference. Join us in the Garden for drinks, great food and the simple pleasure of hearing and seeing great acts on the stage.

GRAVEYARD TRAIN

Graveyard Train know how to put on a potently foot-stomping and spooky set. With lyrics that conjure up werewolves, vampires and ghosts, this 6-piece revels in the humorous side of the macabre. Banjos, dobros, as well as their untraditional hammer and chain contribute to a rich, genre-defying sound that has earned them a veritable zombie-army of rabid fans.

"Watching them conjures the same kind of kick you might get from hearing ghost stories, but with added visceral grunt, masses have rightfully gone bananas for them." - Steph Hughs (Triple J)

    These guys are always fun live, and it was a neat little pop-up venue. Thanks for hosting, Jenny!

    Hey all - there is a group of us at Bear Brass inside at a large table. Yes I am wearing a grey hat. We will probably head to the gig for the 7:15 band. So if we r not at Bear Brass - we will be at the Garden Party having a boggie!!!

    February 2, 2013

    • Jen M

      Yes I meant boggie - cause we're different.

      February 2, 2013

  • Jen M

    OK - we're now all at the gig - near the entrance.

    Hi Jen, just bought my ticket an hour ago from the Polyester Records shop in Fitzroy. The moshtix server was down this afternoon when I tried to get a ticket. Can I still join? This would be great.

      Hey Grit - if you didn't get my email, can you privately message me your email address and I will send it on to you.

      see you tomorrow at Bear Brass. I shall wear a carnation...

    Just sent out the email about tomorrow. To say I am a little excited would be an understatement.

    Forgot to mention, if you can't make it, please change your RSVP. Don't want to be looking out for people who won't be turning up. If you're not there by 9pm, I'm sorry but my eyes will be on the stage, not who is walking through the door...

  • Jen M

    Hey peeps - am having a few internet issues this evening, so the email is coming with details for Sat. Sit back, relax and enjoy the wait...

    Heu guys, so looking forward to seeing Graveyard again. They are brilliant live. Are we meeting somewhere before the werewolf festivities?

    January 29, 2013

    • Jen M

      Hi Sharon - sure people can meet somewhere beforehand for a drink. Once RSVP's have closed (Thurs) info will be sent out to everyone going. Hopefully we can recognise you??? See u Sat.

      January 29, 2013

    • Sharon

      Excellent! Send thru the details and I'm happy to meet wherever beforehand. I don't really look like ET in drag so I'll make sure I'm recognisable...See u sat
