Tour name: 'Poison City Weekender'
Now in its fourth year, Poison City’s annual Weekender fest is set to converge on Melbourne again this September for three days of friendship, punk-rock, bar hopping, hugs and high fives! The Corner is hosting this event among others around the city and this year the Melbourne record label has reached far and wide to assemble the event’s biggest line up yet! Heading up the festivities is none other than New York post-hardcore supergroup Rival Schools, returning to Australia for the first time since the release of their 2011 comeback album ‘Pedals’. Also making the journey down under for the first time is Philadelphia’s Restorations, whose recent ‘S/t’ debut continues to win the hearts of ‘older punks’ everywhere, their music being described as everything from angsty ‘90s indie-punk, to shoegaze to a melding of Lucero and Explosions In The Sky. They’ll be joined by The Smith Street Band, A Death In The Family (Final Show!), Extortion, Luca Brasi, I-Exist, Hoodlum Shouts, Jamie Hay, Grim Fandango, Milhouse, Jen Buxton, Between The Devil & The Deep, Outsiders (NZ), Let Me Down Jungleman, Chinese Burns Unit (members of Frenzal Rhomb, Lawnsmell, The Optionals), Toy Boats, Lincoln Le Fevre, Run Squirrel and White Walls, with more acts still to be announced!.
