‘Tis the season to celebrate 11 years of Mistletone, with one of the world’s greatest party bands, !!! (chk chk chk) in a super rad outdoor performance in the Malthouse Theatre courtyard, with an exceptional local lineup featuring Tropical F*ck Storm, Cash Savage and the Last Drinks, Spike F*ck, + DJs POCOCK + Post Percy.

Revel in the golden blessings of summer in a stunning pop-up outdoor venue produced by team at Shadow Electric with a high-vibrational lineup of live bands and DJs curated by Mistletone in collaboration with Shadow Electric.

Legends from the NYC underground, !!! are one of Earth’s great live bands; something you have to experience in the flesh to truly comprehend. Designed for celebration and built for energy generation, !!! left their contemporaries in the dust to sound more vital and irresistibly danceable than ever. (Fun !!! fact: frontman Nic Offer is his real name, and he was born on New Year’s Eve.)

TFS (Tropical F*ck Storm) is Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin (The Drones), Lauren Hammel (High Tension) and Erica Dunn (Harmony, Mod Cons). One of the most thrilling new bands of our times, articulating the dread of this historical moment with delirious swagger and aplomb. Having sold out two maniacal Melbourne shows last week, following a US tour to packed theatres opening for Band of Horses and King Gizzard, Tropical F*ck Storm’s two raved-about, limited edition 7″s to date promise a forthcoming debut album for the ages.

Cash Savage and the Last Drinks have had a colossal year. Having delivered one of the most overwhelmingly powerful and euphoric performances of Golden Plains, on the back of their breakthrough album One Of Us, and toured to ever-increasing audiences at festival and club shows across Europe, Cash and her incendiary band bring it all home to Summer Tones for a show that promises nothing short of utter exaltation.

Inspired by love, obsession, addiction, transness and washed up 60s musicians who make overproduced comeback albums in the 80s, Spike Fuck describes her current sound as “smackwave”: a blend of late 80s new wave and late 70s post-punk, a dash of country music/singer-songwriter sensibilities delivered in Las Vegas Ballroom karaoke vocal style.

Summer Tones disc jockeys POCOCK — dearly beloved broadcaster, promoter, astronomer and party boy — and Post Percy, powerhouse one man party and creator of the iconic weekly party “dance technique” — will take us to the outer-realms of the Pocosmos and Post Percy-verse between bands.

Food will be available all day from the kitchens of Melbourne’s finest Japanese restaurants including: Wabi Sabi, Neko Neko, Yoko Ono Ramen and Bosozoku Burgers.
