It’s May madness at The Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne, with a great line-up of bands announced and scheduled for this month and beyond!

Melbourne six-piece Lurch & Chief kick off their Breathe EP tour this Friday, and have just been announced for a show at the Ding Dong in mid-June.

Fellow indie rockers The Deloraines will launch their new single ‘Wasted’ this month with support from dreamy pop group Bears, and Jeremy Neale and The New Orlando Magic will play at the end of May.

June and July will also see bands like Pallbearer (USA), Harts and Marmozets (UK) take to the stage too.
