10 Years of The Rebelles…The Pubcast Show…Upcoming Show December 2

It’s been fun times for us over this past week!

We kicked off the weekend by celebrating the 10th anniversary of our first ever gig with our own little party, and were joined by special surprise guest Anna GoGo – we danced and laughed and sang, it doesn’t get much better! And it doesn’t feel like 10 years – thanks to all of you who have supported us along the way.

On Wednesday we were lucky enough to be invited to perform on The Pubcast Show at The Last Chance Rock’n’Roll Bar. Check out this episode and be sure to tune in each Wednesday via their FB page for more pub chat and musical goings-on. We had an absolute blast, thanks to the lovely pubcast folk for having us 🙂

We’ve also been rehearsing for our upcoming show on Saturday 2nd December at Memo Music Hall. We’re supporting The Reefers in a Surf Rock Celebration! We’ll be joined by guest vocalist Dusty Springclean, of Pops fame, for a surfed up Australian classic. This’ll be our only gig until February, so get your tickets via the Memo website before they’re all gone!

The Reefers Vs The Rebelles @ Memo Music Hall Saturday December 2nd

What happens when an immovable object meets an unstoppable force?

Find out when The Reefers go head to head with The Rebelles in a titanic clash to decide once and for all; who holds the Secret of Surf.

For one night only, MEMO Music Hall will play host to a cavalcade of surf, turf, and sixties sensibilities, to rattle the halls of Poseidon himself.

Featuring the exotic oscillations of Trisnasari Fraser, and the wild style of Richie 1250, this promises to have hips shaking from the delta to the deep blue sea. See you up the front.

The Reefers are comprised of all of the original band-members:  Mama Sun Reefer, “The” Jack Norton, Evil Al Cordobez, Stonehawke and JT Reefer, they play a hybrid of traditional surf music and the rolling beats of the middle-east.   

Not to be outdone in the surfing stakes, The Rebelles will be holding their own and then some, cranking out an epic set of beach-friendly rockers with a surprise or 2 up their sleeves.

Sharing in the middle-eastern groove, Trisnasari will join Matt and Jack once more to shimmy and delight the audience on the dance-floor.

The ship shall be expertly captained by Richie 1250, as he navigates the salty richness of some of the best surf and summer tunes, to keep the celebration going on the dance floor and at the bars. Usually found in the studios of PBS FM and his own Slow Grind Fever events, we thank him for joining us.

Announcing the Shimmy Chillin’ EP and launch shows

The Rebelles are super excited to announce the arrival of their latest brood of all-original rockers, the Shimmy Chillin’ EP!

It’s been nearly two years since The Rebelles’ ace debut long player Go! Rebelle! and Melbourne’s premier girlgroup sensation have clearly put that time to good use. The Shimmy Chillin’ EP contains four hot new tracks that showcase the band’s songwriting talents – from moody grooves and bubblegum pop to deliciously devilish doo wop – and is sure to set toes a-tappin’ and hearts a-flutterin’! All in a good-bad-but-not-evil way, of course.

And as always with The Rebelles, ears everywhere are set for a treat thanks to that wall of stunning harmonies that you only get from 15 fearless women and only one band!

The Shimmy Chillin’ EP will be available on good old fashioned 7” vinyl from the Rebelles’ own online store (pre order now!), as well as some of the hippest record shops in town. You’ll also be able to find it on iTunes, Spotify and all your favourite online services.

We just know you won’t be able to help falling in love with the tunes, and you won’t have to wait too long to hear them live. The Rebelles are teaming up with 2 of their favourite Melbourne bands to bring you a pair of killer launch shows – one on either side of the Yarra.

On the North side: Friday 5th May at Yah Yah’s, 99 Smith St. Fitzroy – with cool rockabilly cats The Strays. Tickets $15 on the door or book here to make sure you don’t miss out. Doors open 8pm.

On the South side: Saturday 20th May at The Flying Saucer Club, 4 St George’s Rd Elsternwick, with the irrepressible Dusty Springclean and the Pops! Tickets $15 pre booked, $18 on the door and $23 reserved seating. Doors open 8pm.
