F#*K THIS, I’m goin to the Bendi – DAWN

As part of the revival of live local music scene in Melbourne, Your Mate Bookings is committed to once again giving you the best entertainment in the world surrounding everything heavy.

We return to our beloved Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood to support the re-emergence of live music for the monthly gathering of “F#*k this, I’m going to THE BENDI”

Sydney based Doom Metal band “DAWN” finally make their way back to the stage for a session of riffs with local support from “Shroud” and “Temple in the Sky” on Saturday March 27th from 8pm.

Since the worldwide pandemic, “DAWN” has been kept apart between Melbourne (where Dharma is based) and Sydney (The rest of the band); whilst saddened to let go of a heap of other shows that were booked in 2020 and 2021.

Their conception in 2016, brought new innovative blood to the occult doom scene.

In the years that followed, DAWN released their self-titled EP and single “Day Of The Lord” through Netherlands based D.H.U Records, and graced the stage alongside heavyweights such as Monolord, Church of Misery, Cough and Windhand.

A new age has come and Gaia will once again rise as the mesmerizing hymns of DAWN are orchestrated at the upcoming show in March 2021.

Are you awake and are you prepared for this evening of monolithic proportions and heavy riff worship!

HIBISCUS BISCUIT SINGLE LAUNCH – MARCH 2021

In the month of March 2021, A gift for all lies ahead from our mountain sons.
A vision, a sound from the flowers unbound, The Biscuit are back down since spring, to old Sydney Town.
Truth be told, the days have been bold, we have long awaited such a creation of gold.


The gurus are coming to “Crush these Rocks” so reach for a tree to keep yourself at ease.With two sittings ahead and friends together; Wicked Things and Large Mirage will create such tremors.And while we pray for the day this song to flourish; look deep at the place you can take your space, for the night gives life to the day that you graced.

Session One: Large Mirage
Session Two: Wicked Things 

GET IN THE VAN – BURDEN MAN

Get in the Van with Burden Man EP Launch “Grievance”

YOUR MATE Bookings in conjunction with The Vanguard presents the EP launch of “GRIEVANCE” by BURDEN MAN.

As a part of the revival of the live music scene in Sydney, we welcome BURDEN MAN back to the stage and into The Vanguard for two sets of sombre tones and punishing angst from within on Saturday March 20th.

Sydney’s most morose Dark Metal trio are the comforting hand you hold as you journey into the blue scapes of your own mind. Blending the most heart wrenching elements of dark folk, blues, doom and black metal to coincide with the emptiness of your daydreams and nightmares of mourning that seem to repeat over and over again, Burden Man will meet you there and pull you forward.

Now with three releases under their belt; ‘Shadows of the Dying’ (2017) – the harrowing dark folk, solo E.P, ‘Burden Man’ (2019) – a doom laden, first exploration into life as a three piece and most recently, ‘Grievance’ (2021 via Brilliant Emperor Records) – branching out into a despairing world of anger and sorrow mixing black metal into their foundations, Burden Man invites you to an evening with them. Not to wallow, not to pass the limited time on this earth in a constant state of woe, but to dip into these emotions and indulge only slightly. This so you can exist in these times feeling a little bit lighter and less alone than you might have felt before.

Supported by Ploughshare & Horrisonous

Session One: Horrisonous
Session Two: Ploughshare
