Fall in love with Evan Klar at his debut show, this Mountain Goat Valley Crawl. Evan has signed a record deal with EMI Music and recorded and produced and his first single, ‘Sleep” all before ever playing an official show.  If “Sleep” is anything to go by, this set it going to send punters into a dreamy, free flowing whimsical dance.

I Know Leopard


I know that you probably already know ‘I Know Leopard, but you’d be crazy to miss them at TMGVC, 2017. The other worldly, pop infused, melodically aesthetic group will be sure to replenish your musical soul with a set like no other.

“One of the most criminally underrated bands in the country.” – Lachie Macara (Triple j)


San Mei

Gold Coast beauty, San Mei (aka Emily Hamilton), has come a long way in the last few years. Developing her sound from bedroom made pop, into lush, sophisticated dream tunes featuring hazy guitars, and incredibly soothing vocals. San Mei is currently working alongside with sister company, White Label Servicing and we’re proud as punch!

San Mei’s latest single, ‘Revel’ gained Triple J airplay and praise from the King (Richard Kingsmill), and it should earn your attendance too, lose yourself in flavours of Ladyhawke and BORNS at San Mei’s MGVC set.

If you haven’t seen WAAX live before you’re in for a serious treat! These vibe-punks live and breathe their music. Marie De Vita’s always unpredictable, always incredible performances always leave mouths wide open and eyes gaping. They’ll be blowing roofs off and breaking venue capacity so make sure you get in early for these legends.


Average Art Club

Average Art Club, are set to hit the stage for the first time in 2017, at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl. The quintet took a writing hiatus in 2016, and are back with a bucket of angsty, chill to poor upon their patrons. Mixdown mag explained the band as “…not so average as their appellation claims. Driving bass lines and a cool, slinky melodicism distinguishes this Brisbane bunch.”

Catch them at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, and be one of the first to delve into the deep dark grooves of some brand spanking new tracks.

Make sure this all women, all bad ass punk trio is on your list of bands to check out this MGVC, the Brisbane babes sure know how to treat a crowd and keep things fun with every show being a little different than the last, these ladies “plays SHORT and LOUD, about stuff they like and stuff that they don’t”. A Real, real must see.
