Salamanca Arts Centre & Edge Radio present April Archive.
A gig recorded live in the Founders Room and broadcast on Edge Radio.

This month will be curated by The Sleepyheads, you can expect a night of expressive alt-rock and great storytelling.

The Sleepyheads have spent the last 6 years immersed in the Tassie music scene. Originally starting as the solo acoustic project of Pat Broxton, the band quickly picked up a strong local following with their fun, heart-on-sleeve style of indie-punk.
They’ve done multiple interstate tours and festivals off the back of their second EP, “Be More Optimistic?”, which also saw them score a feature artist slot on Triple J.
The band has spent the last two and half years crafting their debut album, and will use this special night at the Founders Room to share some brand-new material.

Lincoln Le Fevre
Linc is possibly one of the best songwriters to ever come out of Tassie. With three incredible LPs under his belt, he’s finally coming back home to play one of his much-adored solo sets. It’s been a while between drinks, and we can’t wait.

Meres is the brainchild of Mary Shannon, a very familiar face in the Tasmanian music scene. They’ve really sculpted a signature sound for themselves over the last couple of years, pairing beautifully written melodies with fuzzed out, alt-rock guitars. Meres has also been working on some new material, so we’re hoping to get a taste of that on the night!

Denni Sulzberger has spent the last few years honing her craft as a songwriter. She has an incredible ear for the perfect vocal melody to match her lyrics. Denni will have her trio behind her on the night, and we can’t wait to hear her amazing songs brought to life in a full band setting.

The Sleepyheads

Since forming in Launceston in 2016, The Sleepyheads have turned heads all over the country with their honest approach to heart-on-sleeve punk and indie rock. It’s that buzz-worthy style that earned The Sleepyheads a coveted Triple J Unearthed Feature Artist slot, leading to a milestone performance at Triple J’s One Night Stand in St Helens.

The band have since gone on to appear at some of Australia’s most-loved festivals, including Falls Festival, Party In the Paddock, Til The Wheels Fall Off and Woolly Mammoth. Their charismatic and engaging live shows have seen The Sleepyheads sell out multiple headline gigs, and tour nationally three times. With more new music to come and their charming brand of indie rock at the ready, The Sleepyheads are equipped to continue captivating audiences, new and old, every step of the way.
