Free gigs, every Friday.

Fridays are a time of fun and adventure; however, it's easy to forget to make plans. The weekend rolls round, you clock off work and you're ready to hit the town, but you realise that you don't know what to do.

If you're in the mood for some live music, Newtown's Marlborough Hotel — or Marly Bar as it's affectionately known — is hosting free gigs with stacked bills and sticky dance floors every Friday.

Originally titled Noise Complaint before being renamed due to some IRL noise complaints, Low Pressure serves up a selection of upcoming local bands each Friday night spanning an array of genres from crunchy punk sounds to angelic pop.

Doors open at 6pm and, while entry is free, the gigs are known to fill up early — so it's recommended you get down asap come quittin' time.
