5 support acts we can’t wait to see at Mary’s Underground

We get some really great bands come through our venues; both headliners and support bands. The purpose of this article, however, is to focus solely on a couple of upcoming support acts we’re particularly excited to see.

If you’re also feeling excited about these artists by the conclusion of this article, get down early to any show at Mary’s Underground to see the supports and you’ll get 20% off house wine, beer and spirits for the first 90 minutes from doors. Good deal, eh?

Get across all these acts and get down early!


We’ve been high on GLO for some time now. Earlier this year, she curated an instalment of our Going Under series for Vivid Sydney, which featured one of the artists she’ll be performing alongside at Mary’s Underground on December 16th; Pookie.

GLO’s single Transmute is a banger in every sense of the word. If you’ve not already listened do it now below. We can’t wait to hear it live on Friday night.

Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of a Tony Hawk Pro Skater Cover Band

Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of a Tony Hawk Pro Skater Cover Band are the exact kind of band you’d expect them to be; a cover band who only play songs from the Tony Hawk Pro Skater soundtrack.

Need we say more? It’s a hell of a fun time. They’ve even got the nod of approval from Tony Hawk himself. Come see them as part of Mary Pop’Ins on Saturday, December 17 supporting punk heroes The Porkers.

Black Rock Band

Making music out of West Arnhem Land, Black Rock Band weave two languages, Kunwinjku and English, creating a kind of rock music unlike anything you’ve heard before.

There’s a real connection to country, themes of social justice, and just a general high energy that’s completely unmatched.

We can’t wait to see them support Ausecuma Beats at Underground on January 20th.

Cammy Cautious & The Wrestlers (The Lazys / Fangz)

With their strange amalgam of dream pop, folk, and scuzzy lo-fi punk, Cammy Cautious & The Wrestlers are, in our minds, one of the coolest new bands to pop up in Sydney.

With two EPs under their collective belt—Sun Drink and Can Of Worms—there’s plenty of material for you to sink your teeth into. Go do it.

Then see them support The Lazys and FANGZ at Mary’s Underground on December 23rd.

INQ. (30/70)

Supporting 30/70 at Underground on January 28th, INQ. is a local hip-hop artist, dealing in soulful, jazz-infused sounds.

With his recent single produced by Sydney legend Setwun, ‘Loose Leaf’, INQ. continues to build himself as an artist to watch.
