About this Event
The Prophets of Impending Doom
The Prophets of Impending Doom are a serious band, possibly the most serious band in Adelaide. Possibly the most serious band in SA. Maybe even the entire country, or southern hemisphere! We cover relatable-but-serious topics in our music, like genetically mutated pigs destroying the world, road rage, needing to pee, how shit everyone's grammar is, and stationery-related innuendo.
Consisting of seven members (seven is a number) we are one of Adelaide's larger bands and also one of Adelaide's most incoherent, unorganised and insufferable bands. We view these qualities as virtues to be upheld for the entirety of the time we are a band.
We have released two EPs, The Suppering and A Baby Ate My Dingo, available on our Bandcamp.
Echoes of punk influences from the last thirty years culminate in a unique, lyrically driven sonic landscape land marked with distorted guitars and grounding themes.
Historically the band has lyrically and thematically weaved through topics such as mental health and addiction. While these themes still arise throughout Idly By's upcoming second album, they found themselves focused on the complacency and apathy seen in industry, government and the general population in regard to the climate crisis. No music on a dead planet. Nothin but dust.
Eli & the Truth
Eli and his humble truthers and their songs aim to explore the well known and highly regarded genre of anti-folk-pleasant-punk-mystery-power-pop, in ways no other band has done before. Their live performances have been described as “emo, but happy”, and “you guys remind me of this band…. give me a second, I can’t remember what they are called”. Eli and the truth aim to to write and perform songs that make you say, “what a hit”, and “these guys are going to be massive”, while still attempting to take simple pop songs in a new and exciting direction.
