Battlesnake – The Duke

It was time for another infamous High Voltage Cock N Roll event at The Duke celebrating world pride and Mardi Gras in the heart of Enmore. Tonight it was Battlesnake leading the pack with Glitoris, The Miffs and Starcrazy.


Sydney’s Starcrazy started off the night with some high energy rock straight out of the 1970’s songbook. Four blokes, big riffs, rock anthems and enough hair to knit a carpet.

Check them out here.

The Miffs

The Miffs are up from Naarm / Melbourne and they want to weave a web of mystical rock around Enmore tonight. The set was full of bass groove and melody filled guitar with hints of middle eastern sounds, mixed up with shades of Pearl Jam heavy riffs.

There was an energy razzed up by vocalist Taylar Paige, doing her best at flinging herself around the whole stage and into the crowd. Even a bit of a technical hiccup didn’t stop these four women, playing through and around a mic drop out, going into instrumental mode without dropping a beat.

Canberra’s Premiers of no holds barred Political, Punk Prowess were glammed up to hit Sydney and pumped out a set full of punk rock tonight.

Definitely match fit from touring and a bunch of gigs, the set was cranking. Obviously playing to a new audience, it took a beat for the crowd to get into the spectacle of the show, but by the end of the set there were plenty of fists in the air as they played signature anthem Slut Power.

Have a listen here, but get along to one of their shows for the full in your face Glitoris experience.


Want GLAM? How about metal riffs? Or even a bunch of burly blokes in tidy whity undies with chainmail hoods? Battlesnake has all this and more.

Tonight their set was filled with an onslaught of riffing guitars slinging metal cock rock, fronted by a satanic preacher spitting words of medieval folklore; all bookended by pyrotechnic flashpots and smoke bombs that lit up the Duke.

Listen here. But you really need to get down and sweaty with them at a live gig for the full immersive experience.

Brown Note alert!
