The Standard Deviants
The Standard Deviants are a Canberra band born out of the ANU School of Psychology. They’ve played in venues from Smiths to the OCI, and everywhere between (specifically the Polish Club). An acoustic trio (or socially-distanced duo) that’s a little bit folk-ish and a little bit punk-ish, the Standard Deviants sing songs to remind you that being sad and feeling bad are the most normal things in the world, and they’ve got the data to prove it.

Dylan Elks is your budget Bob Dylan for any occasion. With his trusty steel string guitar and harmonica combination, he plays the four chords like no one else. His raw vocals and thoughtful lyrics will make you laugh and cry in the same line and his on-stage banter will keep you slightly amused between his mix of originals and stripped-back folky covers.
