BYO Sounds #51
Hey there, party people. Here are some rad things you can do this week, none of which feature Steve-O’s live tour! Try not to go overboard if you’re drinking your post-Splendour blues away.
50/50 Festival – 107 Projects
107 Projects, everyone’s favourite non-profit creative space in Redfern, are holding a festival of sorts. From Thursday until Sunday this week, the space will be taken over by a different new music collective each night. Tin Shed Spots, the NOW now, Pretty Gritty and CDR will each curate an evening of musical entertainment, from intricate acoustic sets to pop implosions. As an added plus, 50% of the proceeds from each evening will go towards the installation of a fresh sound system for 107 Projects. Rad music for a rad cause.
Start: 31 Jul 2014 @ 7:00pm
End: 03 Aug 2014 @ 11:30pm
Where: 107 Redfern Street Redfern NSW 2016
Obits w/ Dead Farmers, The Grinding Eyes – Goodgod Small Club
Brooklyn garage rockers Obits are bringing their grungy pop-rock to the Danceteria. With Dead Farmers and The Grinding Eyes at their side, Obits are sure to kick up a bit of dust. This probably isn’t a gig for those who can’t stand getting splashed with beer.
When: 8pm Thursday July 31st, 2014
Where: Goodgod Small Club - Danceteria
Cost: $28 +bf
Hockey Dad w/ Babaganouj, Shaky Handz - FBi Social
Not enough garage rock, you say? Straight outta Windang, Wollongong, Hockey Dad are launching their debut EP, Dreamin’. The lo-fi duo have put together an EP that’s sure to transport you straight back to the fish ‘n’ chip shop of your childhood. Babaganouj and Sydney locals Shaky Handz will be throwing down as well, so get along to FBi Social and shake your mullet.
When: 8pm Friday 1st August
Where: FBi Social, Level 2, 248 William St, Sydney.
Space Jam ‘98 - The Red Rattler
This one is a bit of a mystery. It seems like The Red Rattler are throwing an alien-themed dance party, featuring Simo Soo, Marcus Whale (Collarbones), Horse Macgyver, Baby.Face.Thrilla., Laprats and a bunch more. The description on their website (really) runs along these lines.
//SIGOURNEY WEAVER AS ALIEN QUEEN//MONTY BURNS ON LEAN BRINGS U LUV//LIQUID SKY HIGH//2001: A BASED ODDYSEY//
