RIOT OF THE DAY /// CAPTAIN COOK HOTEL STANDING WITH ADAM GOODES

IMG_1447

We feel pretty stoked that these guys have the guts to support so many unknown up and coming bands and to stand up and be counted as a true local live venue. We love working with this venue and this sign they put up today totally made our day.

Adam Goodes is an Australian legend and leader. People need to boo themselves in the mirror and recognize why they’re behaving this way.

So today we continue our great residency at the old Captain Cook Hotel with the announcement of another great up and coming live band from Sydney – MOTH KING.

The first time we saw these guys was on a pretty chill night, all of a sudden our toes were tappin, five minutes later we were dancin and half an hour later we were all kissing girls on the dance floor. The music was that good, everyone just wanted to hug strangers and draw love hearts on people’s faces. Continue reading “RESIDENTS /// ‘MOTH KING’ TAKE OVER WEDNESDAY NIGHTS AT CAPTAIN COOK HOTEL”

The good times keep rolling at Captain Cook Hotel with our weekly RESIDENTS nights and just as another sweet band (TAKING BERLIN) pulls out of the driveway another hot number rolls in!

VAPORIZED are a band that many of you may not know just yet, but will surely know post these shows are set to bring their noisy punk ruckus to Wednesday nights at The Cook and we hope you can all make it down for a mid-week roll in the Hay with these cool cats. With special guests aplenty we are sure to be looking down the gauntlet at another RESIDENTS classic!

Opening nights special guests are two very special bands HUNCH and SLOOM.

TAKING BERLIN /// NEW JANUARY RESIDENTS EVERY WEDNESDAY AT CAPTAIN COOK HOTEL!

TAKING BERLIN RESIDENTS HEADER

If you were hanging around Captain Cook Hotel last year then you may have noticed a new band we’ve been championing, Captain Cook (the band). Anyway after we first met, they ended up playing a pretty amazing residency which lasted for 15 shows and everyone who came along had a blast witnessing them make magic every Wednesday night. Due to Christmas and the Summer Holidays Captain Cook’s residency had to sadly come to an end. But don’t worry you’ll be seeing more of those legends around soon.
