Presented by PBS 106.7FM with the support of Creative Victoria, APRA AMCOS and Coopers. Every year, at the height of summer, PBS 106.7FM throws a week-long party to celebrate live music. It's the loudest week of the year and they want you to be part of it. @pbsfm
PBS announce their annual live-to-air extravaganza Drive Live! Five afternoons of live music dominating the airwaves across the first week of February.

Monday February 1st to Friday the 5th from 5pm 'till 7pm presents the ultimate opportunity to catch some of your favourite Melbourne artists performing live at PBS' Collingwood studios.

You know the drill. Three acts, three studios, one drive-time show, over one full working week!

As usual the lineup speaks for itself. Try Terrible Truths, hot off their raw and rollicking LP launch tour; Batpiss, always ready to tear the roof off of our house and the neighbours', the captivating, intoxicating, and critically acclaimed Sui Zhen; dance floor darlings and brain re-arrangers, friendships; and one of Melbourne's most revered exports, The Drones.

They're joined by synth drone masters Taipan Tiger Girls; darkwave duo Mollusc; the wonderfully deranged Deaf Wish, on the back of their Sub Pop debut Pain; Deep Heat, with their cutting blend of post-punk, garage and the sounds of the US indie underground of the 80s; the alt-noir genius of Jess Ribeiro; second wave riot grrrls Wet Lips; sharpie thrashers Grotto; the beguiling organ-driven gloom of Little Desert; the one-woman keyboard mastery of Waterfall Person and the anti-disco carnage of Drug Sweat.

Music lovers will be welcomed to PBS HQ to catch the performances live and in person. PBS members get a free Coopers and everyone gets a fair whack of radio to watch. To get your name on the door, send an email to events@pbsfm.org.au with the subject line: NIGHT (Monday, Tuesday etc) YOUR NAME, and MEMBER NUMBER (if applicable). Drive Live is free and open to everyone but capacity is limited, so get on to it now.
