Snap Scene: Cherry Rock 017 Festival with The Dwarves, Nashville Pussy, Bala, Bottlecaps and more… 7th May 2017

I’m James Young, the owner and booker of Cherry Bar and CherryRock017. I figure, who better to hear from, about our latest and greatest 11th annual AC/DC Lane street rock n roll festival, than yours truly, so listen up…

We’ve got legendary San Francisco garage punks Dwarves. Southern rock/ psychobilly from Atlanta’s Nashville Pussy. The incredible female two-piece, Bala, from Spain, who sound like Patti Smith out front of Motorhead. Bottlecap must be the bastard triplets of fellow Swedish rockers The Hives and The Hellacopters. Plus the best rock n roll coming from our Indonesian neighbours in Mooner and Kelompok Penerbang Roket (KPR).

But lest we forget our locals. We had to have Totally Unicorn from Wollongong, who ripped River Rocks a new arsehole last year. The sexy psych-blues of Child. Debbie Harry out front of Eddy Current Suppression Ring is how I see lo-fi garage punksters Amyl & The Sniffers. From the “ninch” (Mornington Peninsula) comes the band on everyone’s lips Stiff Richards, plus the 2016 Cherry Awards Act of the Year, Zombitches.
