Soundwave isn’t exactly known for intimate shows at local haunts, but all that is set to change with the announcement of seven separate sideshows at the much beloved Cherry Bar and Ding Dong Lounge. Cherry Bar will be hosting two of these shows on the Monday and Wednesday before the festival kicks off in Melbourne/Adelaide with English hard-rock band The Treatment and heavy-metal act Butcher Babies. Meanwhile, Ding Dong Lounge will host one of these shows every night for the entire week leading up to the festival, beginning on Monday February 23rd with the fan favourites Fucked Up. Tickets are currently available through Ding Dong Lounge and Cherry Bar‘s websites.
