Shrimpwitch "Gave Me The Itch" Album Launch at The Tote

Hot on the heels of closing Meredith Music Festival 2018, Melbourne garage-punk duo Shrimpwitch release their long awaited debut album, "Gave Me The Itch".

Gave Me The Itch is available for pre-order now from

Launch tix available now via

After the big EGGS EGGS EGGS, EP was released in 2016, they’ve since smashed out new singles, “Digestion” and “Leerers”, two film clips and new hairstyles! Gracing some of their biggest shows this year, they have garnered enough traction to do more stuff! Backroom and front bar at The Tote!

Joining Shrimpwitch for their epic launching of their cassette into the universe, the universe that is mysterious and vast, are some other high-octave performance pleasure-makers. We have Race Rage, Callan, Way Shit, Dark Water, Affection, Packaged Goods and Porpoise Spit!

This album is a STORY, that screams and wails. 

They say to not release an album in summer coz no one is paying attention. Well, we’ll tell you this, what else is better than having just the ONE newest release on repeat all summer '19, than the crustiest cuties in this current climate? Formulating a playlist in this heat- it’s rough I tell you. But this album will be all that you will need.

Review in Beat magazine from Meredith 2018 performance, “Feeling in desperate need of a shower and some vegetables, we decided to make a break for it pre-Gift, successfully beating the traffic and living to review another day. “

If you love alliteration and hate altercations, then this is the gig FOR YOU!

We would like to acknowledge that this event takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge elders of this land, past, present and emerging.
