This weekend in Sydney: THE STABS, DEAF WISH (and some other stuff)

The Stabs @ All Tomorrow's Parties
The Stabs - completely 'owning' All Tomorrow's Parties earlier this year.

The focus of this weekend is crystal clear. Stabs. Deaf Wish. BOOM! The two damn fine Melbourne bands are playing all other Sydney this weekend. All up in yer grills, etc.

It all begins TONIGHT (Friday) with their ALL AGES warehouse show at Where?House in Surry Hills. The evening will be kicked off at about 9ish by locals Castings playing ahead of the DOUBLE hitter main event.

Also tonight there are TWO (count 'em) fairly large 'international' shows with Ratatat playing at Manning and Okkervil River playing at the Annandale. Unfortunately (for you if you aren't an 'organised' person) both of these shows are 1600% sold out.

For those that like to party 'til the break of 'something' then there is a great little dancey dance thing happening at Oxford Art Factory from 11pm. The night, entitled Get Piggy With It, will feature some of Sydney's finest disc-spinners AND (best of all) all of the proceeds will go straight into the bank account of community radio station FBi to make sure it has the funds to ride out this whole 'GFC thang'.

The Stabs vs Deaf Wish battle continues TOMORROW (Saturday) with an all ages afternoon in-store performance at Repressed Records in Newtown, followed by a show at Spectrum in the evening. The in-store show, which kicks off at about 2pm, will also feature local band Pee Wee, while at Spectrum they will be supported by two of Sydney's finest - Whores and Psychonanny and the Babyshakers. As with all of the shows on the tour both groups will have copies of their new 7" releases available for purchase.

Speaking of Saturday, you can also catch fantastic local band Parades launching their new single at the Hopetoun with Yen and Made In Japan. For those with a bit more hair of the chesticles there is also US punkers Daniel Striped Tiger playing at Red Rattler alongside Crux, Scum System Kill and All My Circuits. Daniel Striped Tiger will also be playing our pick of the Sunday afternoon shows, playing at Dirty Shirlows in Marrickville with Hira Hira (who are friggin' awesome), Former Republics and Intentions. The Sunday show kicks off at around 3pm and both of their shows this weekend are all ages/BYO events.

Anything we missed? Feel free to drop info bombs and/or promo call outs in the comment thingo below.
