This Inner West Pub Is Turning Into A Psychedelic Garage And We’re Pumped

By Natasha Gamra - 10 Jan 2019

The summer vibes continue with Merivale’s new See Sound, a series of free live music events worth losing your shit over. Why? Because secret rooftop sessions and psychedelic garages, that’s why.

The main venues to look out for include Coogee Pavilion (Coogee), Vic On The Park (Marrickville) and The Royal (Bondi) which means whether you’re keen for house beats by the sea or sneaky indie tunes, you’re set.

Vic On The Park

Transforming into an actual psychedelic garage, this Inner West institute is locked in for a mix of rock, hip hop, garage rock and indie with the likes of Misty Lanes and The Jim Mitchells making an appearance. Check out the full gig guide here.

Coogee Pavilion Rooftop

The Pav is slating up some damn good funk and disco Sunday sessions over the next few weeks which will bring on acts such as Ian Drabble, Nick Van Tiel and Husky. To top it off, the next surprise act due here (Sunday 17 February) is Winston Surfshirt who are first becoming one of Australia's most prolific soul and hip-hop acts having already made appearances at Origin Fields, Beyond The Valley, Lost Paradise and Party In The Paddock. More secret sessions are in the pipeline so stay tuned right here.

The Royal

This Bondi favourite will be packed with a heap of DJ talent over the next few weeks just in time for you to knock a few back while the weather is still warm. You’ll also find Psychedelic Porn Crumpets (just the crew who basically brought back Psych Rock in Australia) playing a few tunes from their debut album and new single.


When: Friday 11 January through to Friday 1 March

Cost: Free entry
