Now Playing Tracks

As the punk community is learning about the loss of one of our dearest friends and punk rockers, we wish to say thank you Ginja Ninja for bringing so many laughs and goofy dances to our hearts. 
Shows won’t be the same without you. 

Our deepest condolences go out to his friends and family.

The sweet cozy bar named Spectrum has been put through one year of utter Turmoil, with the renowned disgracefulness of Roots. With big names to the the likes of Evil Elvis, Mustang Jerx, Ramshackle Army and our favorites in Sydney/Aussie punks. 

This isn’t any old birthday party, this will be the messiest one year old you’ve ever met. With cake, booze and our old mate Bacon returning for night. We will make you wish the following day did not exist! 

The day our crusty child was born we had Batfoot! cut the cord to our podium of debauchery with their punk vibes and fun times. Leaving us with the taste of stale Homewreckers and Curly Wurlys, and our ears melted with the voice of a fallen angel; and they’re back to do it all over again!

Playing along side them, were Nudist Colonies Of The World baptizing our spawn with their raw tunes and nudist views - The patrons left in a daze of confusing arousal. 

The unforgettable Ebolagoldfish will be kicking down the doors of the one year birthday with their high paced, insanity fueled set. 

Why would we want to do it all again? Fuck you, that’s why.

  • Roots keeps collecting fans each week, and we’re sure this lineup will create some more Roots die hards.

    Easy Company, Sydney based punk band who have supported huge bands such as; A Death in the Family, Anti Flag, Strike Anywhere, The Hard-Ons, Guttermouth, The Flatliners and No Fun At All.
    Their enthusiastic sing a long set is something you don’t want to miss out on!

    The City Shake Up, all the way from the Gold Coast, describing themselves as “born from the Bowles of 90’s punk rock” this band and their loud sweaty sets have played with the likes of guttermouth, tonight alive and numbers radio, not to mention on the stage of big day out.

    Prevailing Disorder, a Newcastle band we have a lot of faith in. These guys and their political punk noise is something of a whole new realm. We had the pleasure of having them on our stage once before and are excited to have them back again. We know this band is going to be huge, please welcome them into the sydney punk scene.

Holy fucking tits, last week was an epic night, it was great to see that one bad night doesn’t change shit with our kids. You still come along the next week and make it even better.
After the intense set from bunt, when our microphones and stands where destroyed in the most hilarious of ways; The crazy run around set of Jono Willis; and the always fun sing-a-long set by Kids Of Yesterday. We woke up to odd photos on our phones, receipts for the 4 packets of cigarettes we smoked/handed out, party popper streamers in our pants, doused in the stench of sweet, sweet bacon, and the hang over to end all hangovers…
