Established in 2013, Punk Ass Kids as it was formerly known until 2017 was a staple live music club night in Adelaide, hosting hundreds of local and national artists at the iconic Rocket Bar and Rooftop. For almost 4 years the club night hosted consistently 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. 

Since P.A.K's departure from Rocket Bar in 2017, we have gone on to curate live music experiences with artists we love across different venues and spaces in South Australia. We have worked with artists such as Bikini Kill (USA), Mogwai (SCO), Ty Segall (USA), Amyl and the Sniffers, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Surfbort (USA), Earth Tongue (NZ), Mini Mansions (USA), The Babe Rainbow, Lecherous Gaze (USA), and members of Queens of the Stone Age (USA).

In the past 10 years PAK has curated over 200 shows for more than 40 000 audience members in Clubs, Pubs, Warehouses and Recording Studios.

The record label arm of P.A.K Records began in 2021 as our response to the global pandemic. In this time, we have physically and digitally released singles, EP's and albums for The Empty Threats, Coldwave, Ella Ion, Rocky's Pride & Joy and Baby Candy

P.A.K Records is Jessi Tilbrook (she/her) and Sam Szabo (he/him), two pals who have a blast creating their vision together based on a mutual love for live music, community spirit and new experiences.

P.A.K 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.
