Purveyors of great vibes and habitual party starts Young Henrys have plans to go full Patrick Swayze this June with Young Henrys Roadhouse, a CBD outpost curated by your favourite inner west brewers featuring a different rollicking house band each week.
Each Thursday in June, Young Henry’s Roadhouse is your pop-up tasting bar in the CBD designed for devotees to the fine brew who need not venture further into the wild, wild (inner) west to sample their goods. With plenty of tables for beer swilling’, Growlers over the bar, special Young Henry’s brews on tap and an array of lovely beer wenches and tinny boys at your beck and call.
The Danceteria will be the site of the Roadhouse, featuring a ‘stage in a cage’ for a run of live garage, rockabilly and backyard blues performances.
It kicks off Thursday June 4 with Melbourne troublemakers Twin Beasts as the house band and Time Out’s Bottled Lightning Co. launching their collaborative Young Henrys brew. Following weeks feature 60’s inspired rock’n’blues legends Los Tones, rockabilly lone wolf Pat Capocci and hardened road dog Jack Carty.
The first 100 punters through the door get their first brew on the House. And you can be damn well sure there’s peanuts in shells and Belly Bao’s ever popular Baoger, also only available on Thursdays.
House bands in the cage:
Thursday, June 4 – Twin Beasts
Thursday, June 11 – Los Tones
Thursday, June 18 – Pat Capocci
Thursday, June 25 – Jack Carty
Tickets available for $15 via Moshtix
It’s basically this, minus the fisty cuffs.

Auntie Flo has become a central figure in the ‘new strand of club music fusing electronic and world influences alongside the likes of Daphni, Four Tet and more. The London based Glaswegian has been travelling extensively, pushing his unique ‘Afro-futurist’ sounds upon keen listeners worldwide since the release of his debut album ‘Future Rhythm Machine’ was released. With an impressive history of releases on Kompakt, Permanent Vacation, Mule Musiq, Comeme and Autonomous Africa there’s no signs of stopping.
Now touring far and wide to festivals and clubs alike, their trips to far flung places around the globe has inspired Auntie Flo and his partner in sound; ESA, to create the new Highlife World Series releases, collaborating with local vocalists and musicians during their travels to Cuba, Kenya & Uganda to create incredibly unique soundscapes.
The last time Auntie Flo hit Goodgod small club saw the walls heaving and the dancefloor well trodded upon. Trust us when we say… you best rest up those feet and ears because they’ll be given a proper tribal workout, well and truly!
Don’t miss him this Friday, June 29. Full event details HERE.
