"Do you remember, the 21st night of September?"
Probably not, I can't remember what I had for breakfast. But hopefully, this should be one night to remember.
Blue Shivoo is bringing your favourite originals plus some sneaky covers of some classic dance tunes. This should be one heck of a party.

Dress up in your favourite 70's disco outfit to receive a whopping 50% off door. That's only $5!

Joining the party will be EMILIA who combines her love of classic Soul, Funk and Jazz inflections in her music. Likened to power-house vocalists such as Chaka Khan, Etta James and Aretha Franklin, get ready to be transported back into time with her timeless voice. EMILIA just released her first single 'Feel', a fierce funky throwback to the times of sparkles, platform shoes and disco.

JAKAL will also be setting up the night with their funky fusion dance tracks and infectious grooves.

Their unique combination of instruments conjures a stunning sonic world, melding traditional Balinese timbres with classical European textures. Since forming in 2017, they have now performed at Fortyfive Downstairs, MONA (Hobart), Tilde New Music Festival, & Lebowskis.
Listen to some of their music here!

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_iFYwXDbKiOtj-wlq444gQ

Czarektrio - 9:30pm
From Sydney, Czarektrio create long form improvisations grounded in groove and deep textures. The group features Nicholas Mielczarek (guitar), Chloe Kim (drums) and Harry Birch (bass). Their pieces slowly unravel to reveal dense builds that showcase minimalism with a rock sensibility

Smiling Politely - comedy

*Don't Stop Me Now by Queen plays, but with Freddy on vocals and obviously not Adam Lambert*

These bunch of rag-tag scalliwags are at it again and bringing a bevy of sick acts with us!

GREELEY has been a main-stay of the Australian underground hip-hop scene for years now. He made a name in many high-profile rap battles facing off with the likes of 360, Kerser and Manaz Ill, and as a performer supporting acts international acts such as Xzibit, Ghostface Killa and GZA. He's now taken the dive in to stand-up comedy and is making a BIG splash in Tassie, and ready to take on the rest of Australia!

ALSO FEATURING:
James G Warren
Maedi Prichard
Brent Watkinson
Urvi Majumdar
Emesha Rudolf

MC DAISY BERRY

Aaaaaand as always, sign up for open mic from 7:30pm!

Notey and Noisy: A Sound Science Mathemusical

40452020_1896206877349095_1780775990193029120_o.jpg

Notey likes single frequencies. Noisy likes as many as possible, but the perfect note and noise have always eluded them. So they visit a wise chap called Knowsey to try to work it out, but soon find out that music physics is a series of near misses, shifting sands and slippery slopes: Nature's cheeky like that!

An aural cerebral adventure across the unstable landscape of the science of sound. Deconstructing the nuts and bolts of music is at once joyful and terrifying. Imagine a mongrel mix of the Goons, Jacob Collier and Julius Sumner Miller.

While we've performed a few of the songs over the years, this is will be the first showing of the full shebang. Just Ky and me, playing 7 characters and some of the most complex arrangements and looping we've attempted. Being a first public run and it being a somewhat challenging show (though fun too!), please only bring people who'll be able to focus for the full 75 minutes. Yes, despite what you might assume from the title, it's not a kids' show, although I reckon older kids will get it and even dig it!

With synth heavy grooves and crooning vocals Raph.a.L is sure to hook you in and have your head boppin’

Inaminka is an Australian Psych-Pop band formed by Music School friends Alanna Oliver (vocals, songwriter), Callan Martin (Guitar, Synth), Jean Hooker (Bass) with Sam Raymond (Drums) and Molly Krausgrill (Keys). What began as Oliver’s project to enter the realm of Psych-Rock has slowly melted into a child-like melodic pop punch, with dashes of RnB.

Crooked Fingers are a four piece band born and raised in a lounge room in Preston. We like to say we're a psychedelic band blending jazz, soul and surf. If you mix Radiohead, Beach House and Marlon Williams you'd get something weird, and that's us.
Our humble creations are composed with care and offer insight into delight and warm fuzzy feelings.

“It's like a brain bath, because you kind of follow, kind of get it, but you don't know where it's going.
Theirs is a channel of insightful chaos.
Listening to the Montgomery brothers, that is.
They generate the kind of live music environment where you turn to your friend and delightedly just nod.” - Danny Ross

TMB + Ollie McGill become a force so powerful that all you feel and think about is love, and that infectious emotion ripples to the stranger you see tomorrow.

If you're a lost dog and need a soul home, come to this show. Two sets from 9pm $10 on the door. (Front bar)

Films on Forests and struggles against extractavism in Ecuador, Australia & Papua + Info share and meet-up.

Meet with members of the Rainforest Action Group and find out more about what is happening with Australian mining companies' dirty business in Ecuador.

Selection of short films about Ecuador, Papua and Australia.
More details to be posted soon.

Drop in any time 2- 6pm. Bar 303, 303 High St, Northcote.
By donation.

Proceeds go to the Legal campaign for the A'i Cofan people currently fighting to keep their land free of mining.

https://chuffed.org/project/legal-campaign-for-the-ai-cofan-people-of-ecuador

Since 2018, the Ecuadorian government has granted more than 52 mining concessions without consultation in the headwaters of the Aguarico, Cofanes and Chingual Rivers, affecting more than 30,000 hectares of primary forest. Most of these concessions are within the boundaries of the Cayambe-Coca National Park and home to the ancestral A’i Cofan people of Sinangoe.

This area is considered to be one of the most biodiverse region in Ecuador, with a high rate of endemism. It contains more than 650 species of birds, 50 species of mammals, more than 100 species of reptiles and amphibians, and 3,725 species of plants.

Despite its direct impact on the community, the rivers, the land and the Cofan way of life, the new mining claims were granted without any free, prior and informed consultation with Sinangoe. Miners have also been operating without environmental licenses or water permits and have been illegally mining outside of the concessions.

These actions are in direct conflict with the Ecuadorian Constitution which enshrines the Rights of Nature, and makes prior consultation mandatory when carrying out a project or intervention that directly affects an indigenous or tribal people (Article 6 of ILO Convention 169).

Abbey Rose - https://www.facebook.com/AbbeyRoseMusic/

Melvin Gonzalez - https://www.facebook.com/melvingonzalezmusic/

Tickets $10 at the door.

Bio:
Emma Rowe is a singer/songwriter from Darwin. She has a unique talent for crafting quirky contemporary rock songs that combine lust, hope, frustration and joy in a surprisingly complicated but completely relatable style.

Her compositions ascend from measured, spacious moody rock to
lofty pop melodies and catchy choruses. But Emma’s undeniable strength is her vocals. They give a sense of a bird in flight – falling and climbing with intricacies, grace and control. Her voice is an auditory joy and it’s incredibly distinctive from the crowd.

Growing up in tropical Darwin in the Northern Territory, Emma has a
down-to-earth approachability when she performs live. Whether she is
playing solo or with her band you can connect with Emma in earnest.
She has no fear of being vulnerable and is always fully committed to
her performance – it is refreshing and authentic.

Emma has supported the likes of Big
Scary, Frank Turner, Jebediah and Christine Anu. She has also played
at major events including the BASSINTHEGRASS Festival, Darwin Blues Festival, Royal Darwin and Adelaide Show and Carols By Candlelight Darwin.

Cinecult303: 'I'M DANGEROUS TONIGHT'

40279278_10217485912878752_4203416073766174720_n.jpg

AMY HAS A NEW DRESS THAT WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY …FOREVER…

We may be living in a golden age of television series, but nothing compares to the glory of a classic TV movie, a format that allowed for high strangeness and gave many faded or eclipsed stars a chance to have some fun.

In 1990, Tobe Hooper presented the world with I'M DANGEROUS TONIGHT, & an all star cast featuring Mädchen Amick (TWIN PEAKS new & old, SLEEPWALKERS, TRAPPED IN PARADISE), Anthony Perkins (PSYCHO, CATCHC 22, PRETTY POSION, CRIMES OF PASSION), Dee Wallace (THE HOWLING, E.T., THE HILLS HAVE EYES, THE FRIGHTENERS), and R. Lee Emery (FULL METAL JACKET, TOY STORY 1-3 MAN OF THE HOUSE), and based upon a story by Cornell Woolrich (REAR WINDOW, THE BRIDE WORE BLACK, THE LEOPARD MAN).

An ancient Aztec tomb has been opened, and found within is a sacrificial robe, psychically stained by endless blood rituals! Fortunately, Mädchen Amick is on-hand to turn that old hand-me-down into a fabulous little red dress. Mayhem ensues because all the boys and girls just want to have fun - fun inflected by the craven evil of this cursed fashion! But fear not, for Anthony Perkins is on the case, & he simply MUST have the dress...for academic purposes of course...

With enough subtext to write a thousand uni essays, I'M DANGEROUS TONIGHT is equally entertaining as it is chilling, in a GOOSEBUMPS For Grownups kind of way.
Hooper may never escaped from the shadow of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, but that didn't stop him from creating one of the most diverse filmographies of any of the American horror masters of the Vietnam era. His early works indicate a highly creative and original filmmaker with as much skill in Pop Art remixing as Joe Dante and more raw talent than is often acknowledged. His precision visions of nightmare were always buoyed by an eclectic and degenerate sense of humour that could slice a tomato with ease, and regularly cut to the core of the American Dream. His later works relegated him to "lesser" formats, being abandoned to TV & 'Straight to Video', and these works are ripe for reappraisal (check out SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION if you are wondering what the Nuclear Family film version of David Lynch would be). Now we present a rare opportunity to view I'M DANGEROUS TONIGHT, a long lost camp classic that tips the genre on its head & offers up a smorgasbord of sexual weirdness while riding (very) high on the fumes of Fashion-able cinema.

We will be screening from an original VHS release of the film.
The film will commence at 7:30pm. Arrive early for couch seating.
Gold coin donation for entry.

CineCult303 is a not-for-profit film night dedicated to keeping the weird alive. Gold coin donation for entry. All proceeds will be donated to local arts organisations to keep the weird growing.

Maximillian + Jimmy O’Hare

MaxRuddxJimmiOHare_A3_303Northcote_02-09-18_SOCIAL.jpg

Jimmy O’Hare and Maximillian are two young guitarists ready to strut and fret one of Melbourne’s premier local stages. For this special show, Jimmy O’Hare and Maximillian will debut a fresh guitar alliance, teaming up with special guest, soul troubadour Bec Goring. Together the three acts represent the some of Victoria’s most promising new guitar talent.

Jimmy O’Hare and Maximillian first met at music school, where they both put countless hours into honing their craft and finding their own sounds. Following in the colossal footsteps of their forbearers, they are ready make their mark amidst a thriving landscape of Australian guitarists. Melbourne’s eclectic music scene offers an audience hungry to embrace Jimmy’s command for riff-driven fingerstyle or Maximillian’s originals cut from Brazil’s cloth of guitar and vocal poets.

Jimmy was born and raised in the shadow of the Macedon Ranges, and honed his fingers on the likes of Maneli Jamal, Andy McKee and Australian legend Tommy Emmanuel. Open-tunings and a percussive vision for the guitar thrusts Jimmy among a growing movement of guitarists reimagining the trajectory of the instrument. A stagecraft innovator, Jimmy continues to dazzle audiences with both a delicacy of touch and a knack for powerful grooves.

Maximillian hails from Victoria’s Surf Coast, where he spent his childhood listening to an array of guitar heroes like Leo Kottke and Brazil’s Baden-Powell. Absorbing other influences from both North and South America, Maximillian represents the collision of transcontinental guitar cultures. His 2017 debut self-titled album featured his original Brazilian seven-string guitar and vocal stylings, showcasing this variety of influences, which he weaves into his original music. Fresh off tour supporting Australian veteran Xavier Rudd on his recent Walk Away Australian leg, Maximillian is eager to hit the stage in his local neighbourhood.

Despite hitting on different styles and nurturing their individuality, Jimmy O’Hare and Maximillian mutually promise a command of their guitars, an infectious passion for their art and a vitality for performance, a trademark of their youth.

hosted by Hypnotech - In my life as a performing DJ (18 years now?! jeesh) I have done a few marathon sets, but never once in a public venue.

Usually these situations take place in strange and remote outdoor locations, or at bent private parties with an intimate group of very intoxicated people. Exploration with the limits of the mind and the diversity of sound I'll conjure from my music collection becomes a breeding ground for novelty and hallucination. Genres lose meaning, experimentation abounds, and music is truly the drug.

I'll have no idea what I'm going to play. We wont know where we are going until we begin. I'm aiming to speed up the tempo throughout the night, and by the end .... who knows where we will have been? Many have said "The journey is the reward" - Come along for the ride, going on an adventure is always better with friends.

Shiptu Shaboo Designs will be providing visual intoxicant projections for journey.

Bar 303 is intimate, has a great vibe and will provide the vessel for our trip.

Warrnambool, Melbourne, Ballarat, Geelong & Mt Gambier will all feel the heat, come thru and celebrate!

Date: Friday August 3rd
Entry: $10
Venue: Bar 303, Northcote
With support from: CASH, Trucks - Band and The Trepids.
