About The strokes

By bringing style, fun, and catchy songwriting back to rock music, The Strokes became one of the most influential bands of the early 21st century

Their direct, hooky sound — equally inspired by classic tunesmiths like Buddy Holly and the brash attitude of fellow New Yorkers the Velvet Underground and Ramones  — set trends even as it looked back on rock history.

About The chats

The Chats are a pub-punk shed-rock band from Queensland, Australia.

They began playing together in high school, releasing their debut self-titled EP a month away from graduating.

The Chats have become notorious for their loud and chaotic live shows.

About The lazy eyes

Harvey Geraghty, Itay Sasha and Noah Martin met in their early years at Sydney’s Newtown High School of the Performing Arts.

They became fast friends and began to busk around Sydney, their burgeoning band bound together by long hours carting their instruments around the city.
