  • Dear Space Riders


    Brace yourself because we’ve got five huge shows across five days coming atcha. Take an extra long Cup Weekend by dressing in your scariest costume and coming along to Fiona Lee Maynard & Her Holy Menon Thursday night for Halloween. Then on Friday we have Australian favourite Tim Freedman of The Whitlams, before USA’s Marti Brom charms us with her rockabilly songs on Saturday night. Dress in your 1920s best on Sunday, as the Saucer hosts The Cairo Club Orchestra for an afternoon of swinging and shaking to the songs of an era past. Bring in the public holiday with a performance from Joe Camilleri’s Black Sorrows on Monday night for a musical experience that will preview new material and burst with classic hits.
    Please read on to find out about new show announcements, including INTO THE MYSTIC, what’s on this weekend and next, as well other great shows that will be landing at the Saucer.
    …THIS WEEK
    Thurs 31 Oct 8pm: FIONA LEE MAYNARD & HER HOLY MEN HALLOWEEN MUSICAL SPECTACULAR & VIDEO LAUNCH – After launching their debut self-titled EP at the Flying Saucer Club back in June, Fiona Lee Maynard & Her Holy Men are back to reveal their scary new music video for ‘Beware The Bad Bad Man’ as a special Halloween treat. No tricking around here, the band was so spellbinding last time that they’re back to do it all again....this time with special guests Los Dominados and The Originals. Prizes for best and spookiest costume!
    Fri 01 Nov 8pm: TIM FREEDMAN – Flying Saucer Club will host the lead singer of award-winning Australian band The Whitlams as he plays a stripped-back set of the hits from his band's extensive career. His highly individual musical style is loved by those of all ages, which was evident this year when ‘Eternal Nightcap’ came in at #17 of the Triple J ‘Hottest Australian Albums - Of All Time’ and ‘No Aphrodisiac’ coming in at #58 on the Triple J ‘Hottest 100 – Of All Time’. An absolute pleasure on stage...come along to witness Freedman’s intimate banter, caustic wit and honest vocals for yourself. SEATS SOLD OUT, GA SELLING FAST!
    Sat 02 Nov 8pm: MARTI BROM (USA) + Benny & The Fly By Niters – Hailing all the way from Austin, Texas, don’t miss out on this one-night-only performance from American rockabilly singer, Marti Brom. Touring on the heels of the release of two 45 rpm vinyl records, Brom has had phenomenal success, with her album ‘Heartache Numbers’ being selected as Album of the Year by the Freeform American Roots Chart and her song, ‘Blue Tattoo’, described by the New York Press as “the best country song you will hear all year”. This country girl is not to be missed! Very special guests will be Benny & The Fly By Niters performing their first show in over 12 months. SELLING FAST!
    Sun 03 Nov 3pm THE CAIRO CLUB ORCHESTRA with Nichaud Fitzgibbon – After performing in August, it seems The Cairo Club Orchestra just can’t get enough of the Flying Saucer Club and neither can we! Mosey on down on for an afternoon of shimmying and shaking as the band transforms the room into something from the 1920s. Your ears will warmly welcome the easy riffs and infectious melodies of one of the best bygone-inspired musical line-ups yet and your feet will hardly be able to keep still. There will be prizes for best dressed and best Charleston as we get flappers back on the dance floor!
    Mon 04 Nov 8pm: THE BLACK SORROWS – CUP EVE SHOW – What better way is there to spend the eve of a public holiday than by watching classic Australian band The Black Sorrows perform at Flying Saucer Club? Joe Camilleri is one of Australia’s most adored musicians. His chart-topping band, The Black Sorrows, is about to release their seventeenth album, Certified Blue. In classic Camilleri style, the album travels the full breadth of Joe’s musical tastes as it explores rock, country, blues and jazz. Featuring fifteen new tracks penned with Camilleri’s longtime co-writer, Nick Smith. Joining Joe on stage will be John McAll (keys), Claude Carranza (guitar), Mark Gray (bass) and Angus Burchall (drums). Don’t miss the chance to see Joe Camilleri & The Black Sorrows and get a sneak peak of some new tracks and a good dollop of old classics. SELLING FAST!
    …NEXT WEEK
    Fri 08 Nov 8pm: A BLUES SHAKEDOWN – JOHNNY CASS BAND + MR BLACK & BLUES – Are you ready for the grooviest and gutsiest blues battle between Sydney and Melbourne yet? Hailing from Sydney, the Johnny Cass Band is down to present their fiery new album, ‘Tombstone Bullets’ and will find themselves up against Melbourne’s very own Mr Black & Blues, who also happen to be a #1 ‘Australian Blues & Roots Airplay’ chart topper (not as though we’re biased or anything). Come prepared for some rockin’ and some shakin’!
    Sat 09 Nov 8pm: THE CHANTOOZIES + Leticia Maher - They’re back! After performing to a sell-out audience last time at the Flying Saucer Club, we’ve managed to snag these dancing queens for an encore show. Get up out of your seat and dance as The Chantoozies play hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. But don’t leave it too late as tickets are going fast!
    … NEW SHOW ANNOUNCEMENTS
    Fri 20 Dec 8pm: INTO THE MYSTIC CHRISTMAS SHOW– Joe Creighton returns to Flying Saucer to yet again perform the songs of Van Morrison with his show Into The Mystic. If you haven’t seen it before, you won’t want to miss out this time.
