So come on down to One Eyed Jacks (formally known as The Curtin Hotel) and enjoy our coffee & pie, taste the themed cocktails like risk the spicy surrealist Fire Walk With Me, Agent Cooper's Breakfast Syrup, or the Log Lady's secret ("Deputy Hawk always said that the wood "holds many spirits")

Captain Moonlite is an indie queer pub night (straight friendly). We're like a house party, we play off shitty laptops with clunky crossfades. Unfortunately, no bowls of crisps. We're good for a chat and good for a dance.

w/ Black Cab
+ The Demon Parade
+ Bloodhounds On My Trail
+ Conclusions
+ Teenage Mothers
+ The Dirty Birds
+ Saskia Sansom
+ Tex Napalm (Ger)

Few bands have had an effect of rock n’ roll as The Jesus & Mary Chain, a act which would almost instantly define noise, riots and iconic songwriting; as well as become one of the most incendiary acts to ever trash a stage. The Curtin is playing host to a killer lineup of Melbourne bands playing a selection of Jesus & Mary Chain covers as well as their own originals, and invite you to join us for an epic day of rock n’ roll.

Pre-sales $12 + $1.50bf

Afenginn has built up a world wide reputation for their virtuosity and dynamic live shows, always fuelled by great joy. Afenginn made their first appearance in Australia in early 2014, headling Cygnet and Illawarra Folk Festivals. Their return tour begins at Woodford 2015.
