Paris Plan w/ SXINT P + STAV

Alt-soul quartet Paris Plan are dropping their debut EP 'Love, Make it All Alright' into the world with a party for the ages at the Retreat, Brunswick.

They're joined by special guests and friends:

SXINT P (R&B, PBRNB, Hip-Hop, Trap)
Drawing inspiration from deeply personal and relatable experiences such as heartache, death, substance abuse, mental health, and more; SXINT P's music is vulnerable, hard-hitting, and real.

"I make music to help people. If I’m honest with my listeners, then hopefully they’ll appreciate that I’ve given a glimpse of what really goes on in my head and will be able to relate. Making music is therapeutic for me too - but if I can help ease other people’s pain with my songs, then I’ve accomplished my goal. If you’re still reading, I want you to know that you are not alone and I love you.”

Listen: http://www.sxintp.com

and:

Chev and Stav (nu-soul, world, art-pop)

The tantalising new duo project between STAV. and Chevaunne Keleher (Mihra, My Elephant Ride), exploring new ideas and pushing past musical limits.

Come to The Retreat Hotel on Thursday August 29th to see the guys in action - FREE ENTRY

Featuring:
Astronaughty
Dogs Don’t Kiss
Tali Mahoney
+ guest DJ’s to play out the night

ASTRONAUGHTY:
From recent beginnings, four piece local Melbourne band Astronaughty have perfectly blended a mix of Parquet Courts and the more delicate side of Big Scary to create their own mellow, vibey version of indie guitar pop. With a relatively quiet first eight months, the band focused on writing, recording, and producing several high-quality tracks due to be released in the coming months. For shows Astronaughty has played since their 2018 inception, including two headline shows, audiences have witnessed first hand the dreamy landscapes, and stories frontman Michael paints with artful lyrics and gentle guitar licks.

**The Retreat Hotel would like to acknowledge this event is hosted on stolen land, the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future and all Indigenous peoples of so-called Australia. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.**

THE RETREAT HOTEL PRESENTS...
HEXDEBT
PINCH POINTS
June Jones

FREE ENTRY. Doors 7.30 PM
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's a Tuesday special, proudly presented by The Retreat Hotel!
We've got a 'tour de force' if you will. Three of Naarm/Melbourne's most exciting and enthralling, coming together to kill the Tuesday blues, and roll you into hump day with a smile on your dial.

HEXDEBT
If you don't know, then come find out. Hex Debt are one of our favourite bands in Australia, and for good reason. Their live show is dynamic, fiery & fierce. It'll have you moving, it'll move you, it'll stick in your mind to weeks to come. We are so so blessed to have them back on our stage.

PINCH POINTS
Of course we want Pinch Points at our venue. Find a joint in Melbourne that doesn't want Pinchies playing their pub? We're stoked to get them in before they're too big for us. They have a new album, it's banger-laden. Catch them before they take BIGSOUND by storm.

June Jones
We've got June Jones back at The Retreat, we're jumping for joy! Her set performing alongside Miss Blanks, Dianas & more in January was jaw-droppingly brilliant, and with a few more releases under her belt, we expect no different this time around.

FREE ENTRY as always. Drink specials from Coopers. Come early, stay a while, and catch the three best acts you'll see all week.
