After a huge NYE-eve party last year with Grinspoon and British India, the Best Night Ever is back at NightQuarter this year with Brisbane garage punk party starters Dune Rats headlining in their only show anywhere until 2019!
Yes, you heard right. This is the only Dune Rats show anywhere for the rest of this year until 2019.
The Dunies have recruited some of their Ratbag Records label mates to really get the party started.
The Best Night Ever for the fans who can’t face those New Years crowds – Some punters might even treat this as a hefty entrée to their New Year’s bender – any way you spin it, it’s set to be the Best Night Ever! Again.
This absolute bender will be the last opportunity to catch the Dune Rats before they take some time to create the follow-up to ‘The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit – their second album. The hook-laden anthems on that record saw it debut at number one on the ARIA album charts as well as throw out four tracks which made triple J’s hottest 100s in 2016 and 2017.
The Gooch Palms have been touring the world and playing hundreds of live shows since dropping their second album ‘Introverted Extroverts’ in 2016. The two Novocastrians who make up The Gooch Palms have perfected their art of getting loose as hell and at the Best Night Ever you’ll get to see them alongside their BFFs and label-mates Dune Rats – the perfect match.
Wollongong’s Totty – who signed to Ratbag Records this year have been smashing the airwaves and festival lineups and they’ll join Gold Coast garage grunge purveyors Crum who cut their teeth playing at house parties and have emerged on the live scene with a destructive force.
If you want to see 2018 out with live, loud and totally loose garage punk rock, then The Best Night Ever has been specially curated just for you.
