So Hot This Week: March 10


Johnny Hunter// Georgia June //Aegean Sun 

Johnny Hunter will once again be spillin all over your local bar mats as they take over the Chippo Hotel tonight featuring Australia’s NEXT hot talent Georgia June & Aegean Sun.
Happening upon a sound that bounces between 80s pop and melancholic chorus fascination, Johnny Hunter consolidates on what talent they have left to bring soul to the stage – nothing quite like what you’ve seen before. Low vocal stumbles and belting, anthemic chorus lines match off with thrashing guitars, rhythmic shimmer and a lot of bravado. The Chippo Hotel, Chippendale, 8pm-1am, $10
