🎶 AOTW | Cable Ties - All Her Plans 🎶
From the AOTW Committee - "Melbourne 3 piece powerhouse Cable Ties have been gracing the 4ZZZ airwaves ever since their debut album in 2017. Not only do we love the fierce punk energy of this band, we also love their independent spirit and organic build that's seen them gradually win over to larger audiences. Their set at the Units Fest at Eatons Hill Hotel earlier this year was an absolute cracker, and featured a lot of the tunes that grace this latest record - songs such as 'Thoughts Back' and 'Time For You'. 'All Her Plans' continues the impressive rise."
🥁 TOP 20 | June 17th - June 24th 🥁
🎬 Fleabag LIVE is back at DENDY 🎬
The #1 NT LIVE of all time at Dendy is back for limited encore sessions from June 30th!
See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, recorded live in London’s West End and finally returning to the big screen due to popular demand!
Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
'Never has being a modern woman seemed so painfully funny, brutal, and hopeless all at once.'
‘Gloriously disruptive. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a name to reckon with.’
- New York Times
