Get in the Van – A Post COVID Revival of Live Music!
YOUR MATE Bookings in conjunction with The Vanguard presents the debut live event of Rusty Souls on DATE.
Weโ€™re bringing live music back, through sickness and health we all need this.
As a part of the post COVID revival of the live music scene, Your Mate Bookings would like to bring you jams crafted from sounds of the unknown. Ambient, trip hop, psychedelic, downtempo, acid, techno, call it what you will, this is Rusty Souls.
The COVID restrictions imposed by the government was very unsettling and caused major damage to the music scene; however all involved from bands to promoters by way of booking agents and venues will stop at nothing to repair this flourishing scene of talent, dedication and pure love for the arts.
Rusty Souls will play two sets at The Vanguard on ;
First Set: 6pm โ€“ 8.30pm
Second Set: 9.30pm – 12.00am
Expect lighting projections and psychedelics from this space travelling Duo . It will be a truly thrilling evening to be remembered.
Due to the current restrictions, this will be a seated event (Maximum of 50 persons per session) however, The Vanguard kitchen will be open with many mouth watering snacks.

Pieces of Molly join YMB

YOUR MATE Bookings would like to formally welcome Christchurch, NZ based primal rockers Pieces Of Molly!
Pieces of Molly have been scaling New Zealand and the Aussie east coast since 2012 with their thundering rhythm met with sweltering guitar licks, smothered in raw, rock nโ€™ roll vocals.
The boys have been known to party hard with their On/Off Stage Antics and with these restrictions in place have been itching to get back on the road to give you some filthiest rock drenched performances the world has ever seen.
With a single and music video to be released in the weeks to come, we look forward to touring the boys again in OZ and NZ (in 2020) while they prepare for their huge support slot with Californian Stoner Legends Nebula in 2021.
Welcome aboard ya filthy animals!
