Quiksound Productions and Monash Youth Services is proud to present Under The Stars!

Under The Stars is an all-ages live music event with headliners Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers and will feature performances from Lotte Gallagher and great up and coming local acts.

 

Where – Glen Waverley Community Centre, 700 Waverley Road Glen Waverley

When – Friday 28 June, 6pm

Entry - Tickets are $10 and available at: https://www.trybooking.com/CQZDB

 

The music of Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers is a pure balance of emotion and conscious observations of the world around them. Punk-rock music packed with heart and wit – it’s this combination of energy and musicianship that has made the band one of Australia’s most exciting sets of voices. Demonstrating their evolution across an impressive string of releases and performances around the country since their 2019 debut, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers embraced 2023 with the release of their highly anticipated debut studio record, I Love You.

Impressing triple j tastemakers and earning a coveted top-five finalist spot in their Unearthed High 2023 competition, 17-year-old singer/songwriter Lotte Gallagher is a stand-out talent amongst the country’s next generation of alt-rock stars. An artistic soul with an air of blasé vengeance, Lotte’s sound is reminiscent of genre leaders Phoebe Bridgers, Angie McMahon and Courtney Barnett. With her too-cool-but-I-care-too-much attitude, Lotte Gallagher is a force to be reckoned with – a phenomenal artist with the drive to become a true star of her generation.
