With Mannequin Death Squad, Asylum Sis†ers & Silver Bite
Entry to the show entitles you to stick around and party with no extra charge ’til our new 7AM closing!
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…
DPRS ‘Wave Of Support’ Show Saturday 11th January, 8pm
DPRS Wave of Support w/ The Rollercanes & Baby Mullet
The call has been made loud and clear. In the face of disaster and devastation across this incredible land – the people, the animals and the heroes that battle these fires need our support. DPRS have a gig at Cherry Bar this Saturday with absolute legends The Rollercanes & Baby Mullet and we are sending this wave through to those who need it. All proceeds from the night are being split 3 ways and donated to relief efforts for the CFA, WIRES animal relief and the Fire Relief Fund for First Nations Communities set up by Yorta Yorta man Neil Morris of DRMNGNOW.
Tickets are available at the link, $10 presale and $15 on the door.
It would mean a lot for everyone to get down and show their support, in these difficult times it is important to surf together. If you have the capacity and want to donate to any of the funds mentioned above, the links are listed below. Be safe, be strong, be positive and we will see you there.
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.
Starcrawler Monday 13th January, 8pm
Starcrawler (USA) performing live on the Cherry stage!
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.
