First produced in the 16th century, Tequila is harvested from the Blue Agave plant by ‘ jimadores’ (pictured) and is primarily found surrounding the Mexican city of Tequila!  Whether you choose to celebrate with a frozen cocktail, a classic margarita, or straight like a true Mexican, Posse has compiled a list of awesome tequila bars from all over the world that will make for a memorable Tequila Day.

Garage Band Royal Chant’s favourite Tour Haunts

Royal Chant is a three-piece garage band from the wilds of NSW. Fast & fuzzed, slanted & slurred, they play their poetic concoctions with their their hearts on their sleeves and a reckless abandon born from the neverland/netherworld that comes from the edges of modern existence.  Always the underdogs, and laced with a penchant for catchy melodies, they keep their heads down and the distortion up, carving their own strange path out of the spotlight but somehow never far from it. Check out their ultimate street of on-tour hangouts shared via Posse and lend your ear to them via Holding Pattern!
