ATP's Release The Bats Melbourne event is approaching next week. It all takes place at The Palais and Palace Bandroom in St Kilda on Saturday 26th October. Featuring Television performing their classic album 'Marquee Moon' in full, as well as The Breeders performing their landmark record 'Last Splash'; the lineup also includes legendary live bands such as Sleep, Lightning Bolt, Fuck Buttons, as well as Australia's own The Scientists and other local talent.
Halloween fancy dress is encouraged, and those dressed as something to do with one of the bands will be eligible to win some excellent prizes. One of the extracurricular highlights of our February I'll Be Your Mirror event, Pricasso, will return to paint some special Halloween portraits in his own inimitable style, and wristbanded ticketholders will also be able to enjoy a free ride at nearby Luna Park.
Tickets are sold out.
A free downloadable MP3 mixtape featuring the line-up can now be downloaded from this link.

Stage 1 at The Palais is big enough for all of our attendees, but attendees should note that Stage 2 at the Prince Bandroom cannot hold the full festival capacity all at once, and so should arrive early if they don't want to possibly miss something there. More details on the event including FAQs will be emailed to all ticketholders very soon.
