Help us celebrate the return of the Sticky Carpet Gin with live music and free G&Ts. 

On Wednesday 17 April, we’re hosting a FREE party to mark the second coming of Sticky Carpet Gin in the venue that inspired the original 2019 gin – the Espy! 

Tickets get you access to a free G&T on arrival, live sets from Melbourne band, Floodlights and support act, Back Pocket. Plus, there’ll be merch giveaways on the night and a bunch of delicious Sticky Carpet Gin drinks available at the bar including Watermelon G&Ts made with watermelon syrup and tonic, and Pine Line Shots, aka a shot of Sticky Carpet Gin blended with splice mix (yum).  

It all kicks off at 6PM in the Gershwin room and we can’t wait to see you with a Sticky G&T in hand!  Register your free ticket at the link below:

    Back Pocket are a four-piece rock band from Melbourne. Having begun as the humble guitar-and-vocals-only project of songwriters Sophie Dickinson and Anna Stewart, Back Pocket found its stride in 2022, playing gigs around Melbourne with a fully-fledged rhythm section. Coupling self-conscious lyrics with self-indulgent solos, the band found their sound somewhere in the international waters between dolerock, riot grrrl and new wave. Now, after a brief hibernation, Back Pocket are back. With new additions, Lincoln Healy and O’Sullivan, Back Pocket are returning to their regular haunts.
