Joining the previously announced;
UK emo anti-folk legends CRYWANK,
Manic “chainsaw folk” immortals (launching a new album) THE CROOKED FIDDLE BAND,
Celt-punk riot that have done several USA and AUS dropkick tours THE RAMSHACKLE ARMY,
and the honest, dark n husky songstress from the wilderness CLAIRE ANNE TAYLOR.
RUNEBILLY RATTLE, from the ashes of Adelaide’s Dr Piffle and The Burlap Band, a “fortune stone doombily” acoustic act, they’ve been only gigging on rare occasions, and we’re feeling lucky to have the opportunity to witness them.
DEPARTURE PARTY, having resurrected the band and getting back into the NZ scene, Jojo is coming over to deliver a solo version of their anti-folk fun.
MEDUSA’S WAKE, the rising stars of the Sydney celt-punk scene. You could be mistaken for thinking you’re in Ireland and ten Guinnesses deep into a the best night you never remembered.
JODIE FLANGE, front woman of Brisbane punk rock act Flangipanis will be strapping on an acoustic guitar and doing us a solo treat.
RUSTED TONGUE, recipients of the inaugural Irish Mythen bursary grant.
We are honoured to have been donated $500 from Canadian folk singer Irish Mythen to distribute to a female musician(s) to help develop their musical endeavour. Rusted Tongue are an emerging band from Melbourne with five female members, we see great potential in this new band. They are currently recording, and could use the money for production of their recordings. HOBOFOPO2019 will provide a great opportunity for them to present their music to a new audience and network within the Australian folk-punk scene.
Plus some of the mainstays of Australian folk-punk of the last five years, these acts have played every HOBOFOPO so far, and it would be amiss to not have them;
Convict punk storytellers THE DEAD MAGGIES, fun emo and positive observational QUINTON TREMBATH, boozy bluegrass and cheeky country folk trio THE STRAGGLERS, more anarcho psychosis from the gutter THIS IS A ROBBERY, better dead than alive THE DEAD PEASANTS, fails at singing about unemployment BRODYGREG and another anarchist punk playing 4-chords and the truth JUDE JOSEPH.
