Spacegoat is a heavy band with melodic vocals, and they’re playing the Golden Vine tonight.

Lead singer Erin Blackmore said the band has been gigging for 12 months, and have been getting great response for their music and performances.

“In order for us to step it up a notch, we now need to get into the studio and work on a professional recording, which we have booked for December at Coloursound Recording Studio in Altona,” she said.

“Studio time is a costly venture and we want to encourage as many people as possible to come along to this gig at the Golden Vine on Friday to help support us in getting there.

“The $5 door charge goes straight to the bands and every little bit helps.”

Blackmore said not only does it assist their personal endeavour of hitting the studio, but it also helps the venue continue to support bands.

“There are a lack of venues in Bendigo for bands that play original music, so we are really grateful to have the Vine,” she said.

“We, like many other local bands, have worked hard writing these – our – songs; we are very proud of them and we love nothing more than to get out there and play them to people.

“We’ve been working on a couple of new songs over the past few months and we’re keen to unleash those onto an audience tonight, too.

Spacegoat is supported by Ergasia, who kick off the night at 9pm.
