Way back in early 2009 three friends agreed on the logo and line up for a little one day soiree they called Blood, Sweat & Beers.

With a premise of giving younger bands a chance to get on bigger stages alongside their more popular peers in a nice inclusive space with no bigotry towards style or people, it worked 8 times then had a nap…

Speaking of naps, we’ve been taking one on the Bombshell Presents front this year, there were no plans for any events, but when the BS&B crew came knocking with the lineup for their last hurrah, we just couldn’t say no, and thought it’d be quite fitting if this was also one last Bombshell Presents event since we’ve been stoked to be on board for all the Blood, Sweat & Beers bashes in the past.

They’ve pulled out all the stops on this one. Bands will be spread over three stages around the Factory Complex in Sydney this Saturday. Tickets are on sale now, and running thin.

Not only is it value for money, a dollar a ticket is going to Don’t Fret Club and Support Act to help our friends who need a helping hand.

The final line up is below.

Here’s how team BS&B call it:
The Bennies – party, bong on, 420, yiewww, got a new album too
Gooch Palms – sweet outfits, good tunes, touring with The Bennies
Game Over – late 90s Melbourne punk rock this is their first Sydney trip since the early 2000s

Flangipanis – straight from their bio… they’re not shit
