This Friday January 10th we’re presenting a cavalcade of up and coming artists to keep our hand in and raise funds. With the show being free entry, all artist performance fee’s directed from Cherry will be donated towards our recent national disaster. It’s no surprise for anyone compassionate that such a horrible series of bushfires will leave many within our community with the scars of deep trauma and mental anguish. Artists performing on the Cherry stage on the night include Mannequin Death Squad, Siler Bite more TBA

Legendary comedian and Kimmy K’s new BFF Magda Szubanski (Kath & Kim, Fast Forward, Babe) has teamed up with Will Connolly aka “Eggboy” (anti-racism activist, philanthropist) to tackle the flow on effect that many face outside of the devastating losses of peoples homes. With the fund this dynamic duo have set up, they will be co-ordinating with foundations and charities such as Beyond Blue to make sure this “care chest” goes to the best places, where it is most needed. An agenda of letting people know that long after these fires have burnt out, we will still be here to support those who have suffered…

And when you’ve come the show at Cherry, be our guest to party ’til close (Thursday that’s ’til late, Friday and Saturday right through ’til 7AM!) for no extra charge. The new Cherry is located at 68 Little Collins Street. It might be the best rock n roll bar in town.

The Gurdies
Friday 10th January, 2am
(Technically Saturday Morning)

At our new address of 68 Little Collins Street (some may recall a bar called Pony?), Cherry is slightly different to our old basement… With two levels (you can grab a drink in our parlour bar or duck up to the bandroom) we’re going to have special 2AM shows going forward!

The Gurdies are coming in hot from the Mornington Peninsula, we can’t stress enough that if yo like the guitar thing, do not miss their brand of scuzzed up garage rock!

Now though this show is technically the Saturday morning, think of it like you’re still out from the night before…

The new Cherry is located at 68 Little Collins Street. It might be the best rock n roll joint in town…

Cherry Blues with Phil Para
Sunday 12th January, 5pm

Phil Para Band performing two (more?) sets live at Cherry!
Our weekly Cherry Blues is FREE ENTRY with doors from 5PM
Espresso Martinis for $10 all afternoon too!

This Sunday January 12th we’re welcoming Melbourne’s legendary guitar virtuoso Mr. Phil Para to Cherry.

Yes, if you’d heard the story Phil has recovered from his quadruple heart by-pass surgery and back tearin’ up stages. Have you joined us for a bevy at the new Cherry (68 Little Collins Street) yet? Phil delivers his unique fusion of blues, jazz and Latin groove influences with the type of sheer showmanship that has found this axeman become true folklore in our town.

Our weekly Cherry Blues is still FREE ENTRY with doors now from 5PM and supervised children are welcome to attend. We’re also offering table seating with a new snacks menu and wine list.

Monday 13th January, 8pm

Starcrawler (USA) performing live on the Cherry stage!
Support: Smooch
Ticket entitles you to stay and party!

This Friday don’t miss Los Angeles based Starcrawler (USA) and their glammed up, punk’n’roll assault live at Cherry! Lead by the untamable stage presence of vocalist Arrow de Wilde, they’re headed down under on a colossal East Coast run supporting fellow Californian natives The Growlers.

The frequent reporting of their oft-visceral live show (at one South by South West appearance, de Wilde terrorized the room by spitting blood at photographers and slapping punters’ phones from their hands), appearance on Jools Holland and the exciting second album Devour You has us eagerly awaiting their Australian debut.

“Blending the sludgy, doom-laden riffs of Black Sabbath with the urgent pop-punk of The Runaways, the young LA band Starcrawler are a group whose entire DNA seems linked to the 1970’s” – The Guardian.

With admission to any ticketed show in our bandroom you’re welcome to stay until close and party. Cherry is now located at 68 Little Collins Street. It’s probably the best rock&roll joint in town.
