Sun Aug 27th (Knight Over Day, Weekend Rage, Broken Waves & Already Gone) @ The Gov
Sun 27 Aug @ 5:00 pm
Melbourne based national booking agency Amber Mic is currently hosting a series of shows across Australia and will be hosting a show at The Gov in Adelaide featuring Adelaide local indie bands on Sun Aug 27th.
This Sun Aug 27th show features Adelaide indie bands Knight Over Day, Weekend Rage, Broken Waves & Already Gone.
Back with a fresh line-up, contemporary rock band Knight Over Day are stepping onto the scene. The group, from Adelaide SA, are contributing to an exciting new era of rock, bringing back sound evocative of Muse and the Foo Fighters. The band’s storied history begins in a quintessential rock garage in 2014. The original line-up included the group’s first drummer and enduring guitarist/backup vocalist, Andoni Kapolos. With the addition of two high school friends and bassist, Nathan Clarke, Knight Over Day gained momentum and released their debut EP ‘Dreamweaver’ in December 2016. Only months afterwards, the group underwent significant changes with two more departures, leaving Kapolos the sole original member. Now, after a year mixing studies with auditions, K.O.D (as they’re affectionately known) has been joined by several new additions, extending to a five-piece group. Vocalist Mikaela Kelly, drummer Denzel Taylor and guitarist/backup vocalist Jack Ainsworth have stepped in.
Dad Bod Pop Punk has arrived!Weekend Rage are a pop-punk 4 piece from the rough Western suburbs of Adelaide, where they grew their instantly recognisable angsty and grungy sound. A group of hard hitters known for their electric live shows, these dad-bod-bearing rascals continue to surprise audiences around the scene with catchy, foot-tapping, rhythmic goodness and lyrics which have a tendency to hit a little too close to home. Comprising long-time mates Daniel Ninnes (lead vocals, guitar), Will Braund (lead guitar), Jacob Nigon (bass) and Sam Eacott on the drums, Weekend Rage really know how to get the party going and keep the energy high. From opening the 2023 Wayville edition of Groovin The Moo to playing sold out shows at some of Adelaide’s biggest venues like The Gov, Adelaide Uni Bar, and The Crown & Anchor, they have become one of the few ‘go to’ bands to catch on a weekend. Whether you’re in the grocery store, at your Nan’s house, or in the pit, Weekend Rage will have you cranking their head-banging tunes ‘til the early morning.
Hot off the heels off of Music SA’s SCOUTED Festival, Australian indie-rock band, Broken Waves, release their new single ‘The Divide’. Inspired by groove-oriented rhythms and indie-funk guitar riffs, ‘The Divide’ is the carefully crafted result of the band going with their gut, not overthinking sections, and working to nail down the core of what they needed to say.Life’s a beach so just enjoy the waves!Over the past year, the band have been using their lyrics to explore and express their personal experiences with mental illness. To take this a step further, Broken Waves have decided to partner with mental health organisation, the Black Dog Institute. The result of this is a limited run of ‘Come Alive’ merchandise with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the charity. There will also be a link shared on their social media if you want to donate but not commit to the purchase of a sweater. With Ben Lyons-Reid (Vocals & Bass), Will Physentzou (Lead Guitar), Declan Oetjen (Rhythm Guitar), Heath Oetjen (Drums) and Amber Timms (Keys), the group have eagerly been building their foundation in the Adelaide music scene and are ready to make a splash with their new single, Come Alive. Tune in as this is only what the band claims to be the beginning of a season of new material
