Coming Up This Week @ the pbc


Richard In Your Mind
Nov 17 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Richard In Your Mind launch their spectacular 5th album ‘Super Love Brain’ on Saturday November 17th 2018 at Petersham Bowling Club.Thematically, the album transverses between three solid points of reference. ‘Super’, is the ecstatic experience, like the music itself – full power. ‘Love’, from the loss of love, to friendship, to coming-of-age love, to obsession, and ‘Brain’, a dedication to the attempt to understand the machine that drives it all. Support on the night comes from psychedelic wunderkinds Raindrop and HOTEL.

Doors 7pm – tickets $12 (presale) or $15 on the door

New Fridge/Dweeb City/DJ Dex
Nov 18 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

New Fridge/Dweeb City/DJ Dex

Sunday 18th November UPSTAIRS 3-6pm

New Fridge presents the launch of their newly minted music video “The Money Party”. “The Money Party” is a funky party song, referencing the current state of national politics and released just in time to contribute to the political mayhem now seizing the country.

New Fridge are a three piece guitar/synth band based in Sydney’s Inner West, playing their own unique mix of punk, electronic and hip hop influences. The band fronted by guitarist and vocalist Michael Fridge, includes former New Fridge collaborator Andy Fridge on keyboards and UK born producer and multi-instrumentalist Commodore Flint on guitar, together with their pumping sequenced bass and rhythm tracks and great backing vocals.

New Fridge will celebrate the launch with a set including some of their most controversial and humorous songs drawn from the combined repertoire of three great songwriters and are sure to find a spot for their previous, and not so humorous single “Global Warning”.

Joining us for the launch will be those dazzling aliens from space Dweeb City and that funky young master of the decks DJ Dex!

Travelling lightyears from their homeland Dweebtopia, Dweeb City will enchant you with their wonky pop and make your ears recoil back into your skull! Whilst DJ Dex will get the party going with a feast of the latest groovy house tracks to get the whole place dancing!

Whoa Mule / Witches Leap
Nov 18 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Whoa Mule / Witches Leap
Sunday 18th November
In the Bowlo’s basement “Green Room”…

Whoa Mule brings you old time ballads, original songs, and driving triple fiddle dance tunes. Inspired by the rapid weather changes of the Blue Mountains and the bustle of Sydney streets, these musicians deliver a performance characterised by both space and energy. With rich experience earned in bands such as Catgut and Golden Whistler, Whoa Mule affectionately reimagines old time music.
Witches Leap take the dark modal sounds of old Ireland, uilleann pipes, wooden Irish flute and bouzouki, filter them through the hanging swamps of the Blue Mountains and cut them with original convict-noir folk songs of black bushrangers and errant redcoats.
$20 at door / $15 at trybooking.com / $10 conc.

ImprO @ the BowlO with MarkO




Come and see the greatest impro comics of the last 30 years on stage with some of the brightest new talent.


On Wednesday, October 24, you’ll see:


JON WILLIAMS – Impro star and Theatresports comedy genius

LISA RICKETTS – One of the funniest, sharpest comedians ever

EWAN CAMPBELL – Theatresports legend, a genuine GIOAT (greatest improviser of all time)

JOHN KNOWLES – Star of the hit comedy show “I Can Top That” and legendary comedy improviser

EMILIA HIGGS – One of the best of the new-breed of young improvisers in the country.


Ever since Theatresports came to Belvoir St Theatre back in 1985, Sydney has had a rich history of hilarious comic improvisers and shows. Marko Mustac was there at the beginning as a new young actor and comic, and he rose through the ranks to become one of Australia’s most decorated Theatresports players, and most prolific creator of new shows and formats.


For his new show, IMPRO LEGENDS, Marko gathers together some of the greatest impro comics of the last 30 years, and combines them with some of the hottest up and coming players, to create a hilarious night of ad-libbed creativity and laughter.


At the wonderfully relaxed and friendly environment of the Inner-West’s own Petersham Bowling Club, you’ll have a night of mad, made-up comedy of the highest order, from the best players you’ll ever see!
