by Kurt Vile


Travel can inspire in surprising ways: Kurt Vile discovered as much making his first record in three years, the eclectic and electrifying Bottle It In, which he recorded at various studios around the country over two very busy years, during sessions that usually punctuated the ends of long tours or family road trips. Every song, whether it’s a concise and catchy pop composition or a sprawling guitar epic, becomes a journey unto itself, taking unexpected detours, circuitous melodic avenues, or open-highway solos.

Established in 1869 and celebrating 150 years, this hidden beauty stands tall and proud as one of Melbourne’s oldest and friendliest pubs. Located in the back streets of Fitzroy about 50 metres from the thriving hub that is Brunswick Street you’ll find a warm welcome at this local institution.

by Geoff Achison


Veteran Aussie blues-roots artist Geoff Achison is a household name for many music fans in the more southerly states, a reputation he’s forged through decades of making consistently excellent music. Achison first cut his teeth as the young guitar gun back in Dutch Tilders’ band in the 80’s and has maintained a grueling touring schedule ever since, both as part of his band, The Souldiggers, and as a solo artist in Australia and overseas.

The Home of Rock (and punk-metal-pop-indie-shoegaze-post-dole-synth-wave and miscellanea).

The roster of bands that have played the Tote is long and illustrious, spanning back to the early 80's.  Get down and have a look around, the Tote's history is on the walls, in the carpet, in the beergarden and on the stage.
