YOUR MATE Bookings in conjunction with The Vanguard welcomes’ back Sydney’s Psych Rockers “HIBISCUS BISCUIT” as part of Get in the Van – A Revival of Live Music on Saturday January 9th 2021.
After a string of SOLD OUT shows since March 2020, Hibiscus Biscuit make their way back to The Vanguard to party with local Psych Lords “Robot God” and Prog Rockers “Maroota Joe”.
The boys have been working hard on a new album up in their misty mountain tops, and are eager to share some new songs with you all.
To keep the vibe alive “Robot God” will also launch their debut album “Silver Buddha Dreaming” and showcase a big part of the albums content.
Maroota Joe are always a crowd pleaser wherever they go with their Heavy Progressive inspired Rock; giving us a testament to COG, TOOL and even blinks of Alice in Chains.
