Indi bar frequenters Old Blood are back with new material and new friends to present an evening you won't be forgetting in a hurry. With the new release nearing completion, we are excited to spice up what you expect whilst staying true to our form and keep you grooving all night. To help us do so, we've brought along new friends Jack Davies & Ryan Beno to kick the night off. DOORS: 7:30 TIX: $10 TIX AT THE DOOR, DOOR IN FRONT OF TICKET BOOTH. Jack Davies is an 18 year old singer/songwriter from Freo. Influenced by his experience growing up in the vibrant local poetry and music scene, his songs are lyrical and often witty folk tales of suburban Perth. Ryan Beno are a relatively fresh Perth-based four-piece with a penchant for some very smooth, at times dreamy post-rock sounds quite perfectly encapsulated on their just-released EP, Don't Say Too Much.

Dear lovely people, Our sincere apologies to the audience and other bands, but I will no longer be playing this event. Old Blood were kind enough to add me on last minute as a favour to my beautiful new manager Amber, however I was not fully aware of the line up at the time and it is apparent now that this event is severely lacking in any gender diversity. This is a big issue for Perth and for music in general, and as a male musician I feel a responsibility to take a stance on this issue and not be passive.

I have spoken with Old Blood about this issue, they are good and honest people and did not intend for this situation to occur - multiple female and diverse acts were indeed invited to the event prior to myself. However, this does not in any way affect or excuse the outcome. And that's hopefully a valuable learning point for myself and all involved. I apologise for not being more aware in my own booking process. My privilege as a male musician means these issues haven't always been at the forefront of my mind, in the past I may not have been as active on these issues as I should be, and that's something I've been trying to educate and improve myself on. And so as I've already discussed with my manager, this is a mistake that we will not make again. Ryan Beno were already booked before me, and had no input on the rest of the booking process.

They are lovely people and incredible musicians who I would have loved to play a show with, and wish not to...
