West Thebarton (previously known as West Thebarton Brothel Party) is a garage rock band from Adelaide, South Australia.


The Adelaide seven-piece have shared stages with international acts Wavves and Cloud Nothings, as well as local favourites Courtney Barnett and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

After releasing their debut 10” EP through Mirador Records and touring with Bad//Dreems in 2015, West Thebarton were highlighted in the triple J Unearthed forecast for ‘The Ones to Watch in 2016’ and Rip It Up’s ‘The Hot Six of 2016’.

Within the opening months of the new year, West Thebarton were selected to perform at the Oakbank leg of Groovin The Moo and Noisey/Jack Daniels Future Legends’ ‘The Next On Tour’. The band went on to premiere its first single ‘Red or White’ through Home & Hosed on triple j and were chosen as ‘Unearthed Feature Artist of the Week’ after receiving spot rotation on the national radio broadcaster.

They were nominated for six SAM Awards in 2017, including Best Release and Best Song.
