Our friends at Polyester Records are celebrating 30 years in the record selling game, and what a tired old game it would be without stores like them supporting local independent music.

To mark the occasion, they’ve put together a daytime party event this Saturday at The Residence as part of Melbourne Music Week.

Featuring three greasy New Jersey goons, Personal & the Pizzas (US) are self-professed rock’n’rollin’, beer-swilling delinquents. Audiences can expect a doozy of a stage show, with the boys’ common antics involving whipping chains, throwing guitars, and hurling boiled tomatoes at the audience.

Producing psychedelic-pop with unexpected arrangements, Chris Cohen (US) carries an intimidating resume, having been a member of The Curtains, Cryptacize, Deerhoof and Natural Dreamers, and touring musician with White Magic, Cass McCombs, Haunted Graffiti and Danielson. A singing-drummer, Cohen also records his own bass, Casio MT65, piano, and guitar.

Post-punk and 70s influenced band Terrible Truths will offer ecstatic, intense pop songs while completing the party line-up are two of Melbourne’s favourite local acts – the guitar-wash, hair swinging Beaches and pulsating, energetic rockers New War.

PolyFest is co-presented with Polyester Records and Wing & Gill

Supported by Beat, Broadsheet, inthemix, Mess+Noise and Triple R

Beaches, Personal & The Pizzas (USA), New War, Chris Cohen (USA), Terrible Truths, Constant Mongrel, Super Wild Horses DJs and more!

Saturday November 16, 12-7pm at The Residence, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne.
