Top 10 Melbourne Revelry On this week 20/01/2019

This week is a midsummer night’s dream, Melbourne. You know that one where you’re forced to watch present-day Jimmy Barnes sweatily rip off his shirt?


10) Stable Series x Revolver Upstairs presents Molly

20th January

What: A polished DJ, accomplished producer, A&R and now a label owner, too, Molly is a professional who embodies the true spirit of house and techno.

Why: The ‘true spirit’. Which, we’ve learnt, is drinking until getting stabbed in the ears by what sounds like a malfunctioning printer becomes enjoyable.


9) I Remember House: Melbourne Australia Day

26th January

What: I Remember House returns to Melbourne back at the gorgeous Emerson Rooftop Bar & Club on Commercial Road. A night under the Australian stars. Hot night. Deep vibes.

Why: Funny. Seems that everyone in to house music now has a memory that stretches as far back as the early 2000s. We’re not saying they’re largely teenagers. We’re saying it took a lot of a drugs to be able to enjoy that music.


8) Riva Down Under ft. Timmy Trumpet, Will Sparks, Stafford Brothers

26th January

What: An All-Australian artist line up that will leave you sizzling for more… Follow these sounds beach side to Melbourne’s most prestigious venue Riva St Kilda. Featuring: Timmy Trumpet, Will Sparks, Stafford Brothers, Tyron Hapi, Horizon, Piero, Chloe Wilson, Orkestrated, Rodjar, Lucille Croft, Indigo Starlight and Morning Maxwell.

Why: A pretty straight forward beach-adjacent party. Expect standard contemporary bands and skin cancer.


7) Homebass “No Rainbow” Edition

26th January

What: Come, get loose and dance the night away with killer tunes with a fresh air conditioned back room of Melbourne’s favourite intimate venue. Right on the 86 Tram line!

Why: Nothing says carefree dance night like the boxed in sweaty hell of the morning commute you’ll eventually be facing.


6) Lucid: Voyage Recordings Showcase

19th & 20th January

What: One of Australia’s favourite dance labels returns to Lucid once more, for a showcase of unparalleled proportions! Featuring: Roza Terenzi, Rings Around Saturn (LIVE) and Albrecht La’Brooy (LIVE).

Why: Pretty self-explanatory. It’s a dance night in a club wherein you’ll be doing your best to reverse your state of lucidity.


5) Botox Party Episode 1: The Lovers

26th January

What: Botox Matinèe Milano has taken flight and will arrive in her sister city Melbourne. A journey exploring 7 Tarot Cards, each card will be the theme of 7 Spectacular Parties. This is Episode 1: The Lovers.

Why: We know, we know. Tarot cards. But, hell, the world went apeshit with that Mayan calendar apocalypse thing. At least with these meaningless pieces of paper you can get blasted and dance.



25th January

What: If you’ve been saving up that special outfit or gear for a party with a difference – this is the one to wear it to! Grab your trusty pair of Levi’s, that special harness or jocks and boots combo – you have permission to wear whatever you want (with the appropriate footwear of course!) and you’re ready to HUNK!

Why: Finally. Screw the stale air of Christmas and biological family. The year is in full swing now. Time for a real goddamn party.


3) Red Hot Summer Tour Ballarat 2019 feat. Chocolate Starfish, Richard Clapton, Diesel, The Living End, Joan Jet & The Blackhearts and Jimmy Barnes

27th January

What: The red hot summer tour is back featuring Australia’s favourite son Jimmy Barnes, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, The Living End, Diesel, Richard Clapton and Chocolate Starfish.

Why: Hey kid, wanna see a dead body? How bout six?


2) Beechworth Music Festival 

25th January

What: Beechworth Music Festival showcases a diverse range of alternative music, acts and artists to allow you to indulge in the soundtrack of this weekend.

Why: Oh yes, it’s held in a former asylum. But don’t get your hopes up. The chances of a forgotten inmate being roused in a murderous rage by the interminable noise of a ukelele are slim to none. Even the clincally insane are too jaded to move themselves to care about contemporary music.


1) Midsumma Festival 

19th January-10th February

What: Midsumma Festival is Melbourne’s annual celebration of LGBTQIA+ arts culture and Melbourne’s diverse communities!

Why: Remember those bigoted geriatric relatives that still haven’t left your house since Christmas? Well, what a way to send those frigid freeloaders packing!
