Over the weekend host Oscar and a few other members of the 2SER Monday Daily squad, headed to day 2 of the Jameson House of rounds gig at the Vic on the Park in Marrickville, catching brain melters the Murlocs, along with country and inner western goddess, Caitlin Harnett. On the previous night, Oscar and the team also headed down to Waywards in Newtown for another long weekend music fest, catching Hobart punk rockers A Swayze and the ghosts and as per usual they tore the roof off the place with their classic hard-hitting punk riffs. This is what you have to look forward to this week:

The Nagging Doubts 18/6 – Vic on the park
Taking us through to Saturday is a band that myself and Jarred caught opening for Peel at the Lansdowne as part of their graveyard series, it’s the nagging doubts, who draw heavy influence from 80’s post-punks bands, you may also hear a sprinkle of psychedelia in their. I had a long time listener, first-time emailer, David Wills, who mentioned how much he enjoyed the segment. David is a big fan of the nagging doubts and was nice enough to bring the gig guides attention to their show, so a big shout out to David.
