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.
We sell paintings to Lars Ulrich and are rock band.
RABBIT is a rock and roll band with a lot of rhythmic crunch and sharp guitar hooks and they play fast. Ventolin inhaler recommended.

The Trash Vultures are a Death Western Outlaw band, writing songs about the Wild West, cowboy decapitation, mutilation by grizzly bears and other day to day adventures. Formed in Hobart in 2019 for the Arts Hall Little Bands festival, popular demand saw the band continue on to be a permanent act. They released their debut album “Talking Trash and other songs and stories” and the single “Stupid Town” has been receiving good national airplay through the CBAA network and support from EDGE Radio Hobart
