Established in 2013, Punk Ass Kids as it was formerly known until 2017 was a staple live music club night in the Adelaide gig going community, hosting hundreds of local and national artists at the iconic Rocket Bar and Rooftop. For almost 4 years the club night hosted countless sold out shows, with the mission always being to make alternative live music accessible on a regular basis in a welcoming and all inclusive night club environment.
Highlights in PAK’s former years include three annual Winterfests where the likes of DZ Deathrays, Amyl and the Sniffers, The Murlocs, Stonefield and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets all performed, plus countless themed nights, summer rooftop parties, loads of spiced rum and unforgettable performances from local champions like West Thebarton, Young Offenders, Hydromedusa, Hightime and Kitchen Witch to name just a few.
Since 2017, we have extended ourselves to curate live music experiences with artists we love across different venues and spaces in Adelaide. We have gone on to work with artists such as King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Surfbort (USA), Earth Tongue (NZ), Mini Mansions (USA), The Babe Rainbow, Lecherous Gaze (USA), ORB, Press Club, Raave Tapes, and members of Queens of the Stone Age (USA).
In the past 7 years PAK has curated over 120 shows for more than 35 000 audience members in Clubs, Pubs, Warehouses and Recording Studios.
Look out for upcoming shows, and keep an eye out on digital and physical releases coming soon from our signed artists.
PAK is Jessi Tilbrook (she/her) and Sam Szabo (he/him), two twenty-something year old pals who have a blast creating their vision together based on a mutual love for live music, community spirit and new experiences.
PAK acknowledges the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we operate business and respect their ongoing connection to land, sea and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
