Act to Snare Your Attention

What: Hardcore 2000
Where: The Palais
When: Friday June 30, 2000

EIGHT of Australia's best hard core bands from three States will rock the Palais Royale for all ages this Friday from 5pm. The gig is called HARDCORE 2000 and has been assembled by Sydney record label RESIST RECORDS and Melbourne label TRIAL & ERROR. Headliners from Victoria are MIND SNARE whose guitarist NIGEL MELDER runs Trial & Error. His label has released music by NO GRACE from Victoria and DAY OF CONTEMPT from South Australia who will also perform on the night. Other groups on the bill include Victorians VOICE OF DISSENT and ALL CITY SHARPS, as well as Newcastle groups FOUND MY DIRECTION, ARM'S REACH and BARE KNUCKLE FIGHT. Mind Snare has been together for six years, toured Australia nationally 15 times, once with TOE TO TOE, and supported 30 international acts including Belgium's CONGRESS with whom they released a split CD in Europe and Australia, selling 2500 copies. The current line-up of Mind Snare features 'Matt, Nigel and Beltsy' who have been with the group from day one 'and Gordy from FRENZAL RHOMB' who drums with the band when his band's not on tour. When the Frenzal's are on tour Nigel is that band's tour manager/merchandiser 'but we're nothing like them. That's why he likes to play with us,' he said.

ALL-AGES: IN a weekend when too much all-age entertainment is barely enough, THE JAM FACTORY brings you UNLEASH THE YOUTH this Saturday night at Broadmeadow PCYC. Doors open at 7pm with the first band SMILE INK, a five-piece playing down-tuned riffola (with some mellow softer pieces), on stage at 7.30pm. They've just recorded a CD at IGLOO. Next up is HAPPY HOUR 24/7, a 'fruity pop trio', with runs on the board at SJ's, Croatian Wickham, The Cambridge and The Palais. Also on the bill will be GASSOON, a group whose members are in Year 11, playing radio friendly sounds with reportedly strong musical ability. PALISADE, playing their first headline gig at The Palais, were last seen at the venue supporting ENERTIA, STRENGTH TO STRENGTH and SUPERSONIC. The guys play 'new electronic rock'.
