In a monster bill, both complimentary and inspiring, You Am I, Something For Kate and Spiderbait will team up for the first time for an onslaught through A Day On The Green wineries in November.

As triple headliners, in common they have a revered place in Australian rock culture courtesy of a collection of seminal albums that sound as good now as when they hit the top of the charts, won ARIA awards and dominated radio airwaves.

And they share a love of the live arena, arguably their natural home. All three bands continue to receive our perennial goodwill because they rock hard, always. It’s a badge of honour they wear with pride.

Special guests on this “all killer, no filler” mammoth bill will be Perth’s finest, the equally much-loved and hard rockin’ Jebediah with fun-lovin’ Melbourne punksters The Meanies to open.

You Am I’s Tim Rogers exclaims:

To play anywhere, anytime is a gas, but to play with friends in wineries? That’s high falutin’ nuclear blast potential.

Something For Kate’s main man Paul Dempsey said:

You Am I, Spiderbait, The Meanies… I fell in love with all of these bands as a teen attending the fabled Saturday and Sunday arvo All Ages shows that were a fixture in many Melbourne pubs like The Corner Hotel, The Central Club, The Palace and The HiFi. I was completely in awe. The raw power those bands radiated from the stage got my heart racing and my brain buzzing and gave me the kick I needed to get a band together and start making some noise ourselves. Before too long, Something For Kate were joining the line-up at those shows and not long after that we were off on our first proper national tour with none other than Jebediah. Amazing… The only thing more amazing is that here we are in 2016 and all five of these bands (all old mates now) are about to hit the road together for the very first time to take the very concept of the Afternoon All-Ages Show and tear it a new one…

Tickets go on sale Tuesday 14th June. Time to round up the old crew that you can’t manage to drag along to a gig anymore, sort out the babysitters and plan a weekend away. I guess this IS growing up.
