In-Store Performances


Cash Savage and The Last Drinks fresh from their European tour will be live in-store this Friday 16th November. Their latest LP “Good Citizens” has been receiving rave reviews and has been featured on community radio stations across the country. Don’t miss this opportunity to see them up close and personal and to get that new album signed.



Treasured Australian alt-folk outlier Mick Thomas and his band The Roving Commission have just announced the forthcoming Boxing Day Drive EP and his traditional string of pre-Christmas dates across the country.

Compiled from particularly fruitful and inspired album recording dates in Memphis, Tennessee, Boxing Day Drive offers long-time fans a tantalising glimpse into the sessions that begat the band’s forthcoming full-length album release Cold Water DFU – due for release in 2019 and destined to leave yet another high water mark on Thomas’ already storied career.

Mick Thomas’ Roving Commission will launch Boxing Day Drive with a special media show on the 12th of November at the Merri Creek Tavern in Westgarth, and of course performing live with full band at Basement Discs on Friday November 23rd at 12:45pm, and signing copies afterwards.


DAN PARSONS Fri 30th Nov 12:45pm


Fresh from launching his latest album ‘Sunday Morning Cinema’ across the country and multiple festival appearances at Out On the Weekend (VIC), Bello Winter Music (NSW), Fairbridge and Nannup (WA), Dan Parsons continues his album tour, bringing his much-loved blend of troubadour folk-rock and classic Americana to Basement Discs.

The first single ‘Here Goes Nothing’ held #1 spot on AMRAP/AirIt regional chart for two weeks, received national ABC radio rotation and landed him spots on many lauded worldwide curated playlists (Fresh Folk, New Music Friday, Songpickr).

With his rich baritone voice and deft guitar style he explore the triumphs and anxieties of the human experience, evoking the sun-hazed days of Laurel Canyon combined with the cinematic shine of the iPhone generation. Performing as a trio, his sound takes the listener riding through canyons, weaving across silver oceans, and launching into the interstellar…

We are absolutely delighted to host Dan on Friday November 30th. He will be signing copies of Sunday Morning Cinema on the day – don’t miss this!
