Top 10 Sydney Revelry On this week 01/12/2019
Expect good things this week. For the short length of time the anticipation lasts, you might experience happiness.
10) Doorly At The Flinders
What: Hailed as one of the most technically gifted DJs of his generation, as well as being a producer extraordinaire, record label boss and general Ibiza legend, Doorly is without question one of the world’s most singularly talented electronic artists. Sets are played out across four CDJs, plus samplers and FX units, and he is a firm believer that a DJ set should be a live, unique experience. To that end, Doorly continues to work alongside Pioneer as one of its Pro-DJ Ambassadors. Experience him live.
Why: We wouldn’t dare question the notion that he is the world’s most singularly talented electronic artist. It would be like questioning whether McDonald’s the best out of Burger King, Hungry Jacks and KFC. What would be the point? They all get their ingredient chunks from the same industrial-sized vat of rat corpses.
9) ARKADIA Day & Night
What: Do this Sydney Summer season the right way! Starting with a boat party around the harbour from with proper warm open air, kick off your afternoon with some of the most beautiful sounds abroad and proper music curated by your favourite local legends. Then move straight down to club mode at one of the most renowned venues around the town The Club in Kings Cross, which features a large European-style courtyard party area featuring exclusive bottle service, shisha, food and the best house music.
Why: Just make sure you keep an eye out for the coast guard. The steaming turd Tony Abbott plopped out in office still has not been fully cleaned from the oceans and a boat blasting music from “abroad” is a perfect moving target to justify that budget sinkhole.
8) ALOKA Day Party
What: Bring down the roof at Goodbar! The amazing DJ VU will be warming you up with her tech house concoction, DJ Fabricio San will smash up the speakers with a tribal house set like never seen before and DJ Ryan John will be delivering a circuit set ready to boil up the room!
Why: Describing a rave as a loud giant sweat soup in a pot. Surprisingly honest.
7) TK bby: Tech House Den
What: FRIPS teams up with TK bby on Decmber 6th to take on the dungeon of the Oxford Underground for the first time. A night full of house and tech bangers you won’t want to miss. TK bby is a Sydney based music producer and DJ known for his signature pumping bass lines, elusive drums and fun vocals, has achieved 9 consecutive “Aria Club Chart” Top 40’s. Joining him are some of Sydney’s best locals: Jasper Rowden & Jordy Waller, Tully & Wilson Thomas, Olly Boyle and Miles Branagan and Sam Barlow.
Why: A DJ so talented, they have no need for vowels. Perhaps that’s why their entire canon aurally resembles Colin Firth in the The King’s Speech having a stroke.
6) Yeah Buoy Retro Afloat Boat Party
What: Start the summer with a bang with an exclusive Friday night boat party! This time, they’re taking it back with a retro theme celebrating decades of dance! Think 80s/90s/00s, frosted tips, double denim, disco, Polaroids, groovy colours, neon, MC Hammer pants, tie dye and bucket hats as they take you on a party cruise through the decades.
Why: Contrary to what we expected, we’ve actually began to experience an alleviation of cynicism about the love for past eras. Perhaps it’s the increasing need for mental self-preservation that comes with age, but a past in which we only suspected a considerable portion of the entertainment industry was engaged in paedophilia gets a little brighter everyday.
5) Trough Syd: XXXMAS Edition
What: Trough will be returning to Universal for their next epic instalment. As well as dishing out a night of dark and dirty beats, they will be serving up a visual art/laser spectacular that will get your tongues wagging and blood pumping. For those kicking on, the After Party at Sydney Sauna will be the perfect place to chill and unload after getting a taste of all the man-to-man, cheek to cheek action on the dance-floor.
Why: Spend the holiday season with the family that thrusts for you, rather than one that’s been thrust upon you.
4) Casa Peru: Ceviche & Pisco Sydney Pop Up
What: Come and experience the taste and flavours of Peru at this Pop Up event underground in the heart of Bondi Junction. A collaboration between local Pisco Importer, Don Juan Imports, Sydney Latin Life and The Junction will allow you to taste a huge range of Pisco alongside freshly made Ceviche. Friday Night then launches into Disco Cantina so the party will last all night.
Why: There’s nothing like hard liquor and raw fish to make one feel one deeply in tune with the entirety of Peruvian culture.
3) The Temper Trap: Conditions Tour
What: Since Conditions launched The Temper Trap onto the global stage the band have moved overseas, started families, confirmed tour muso Joseph Greer as an official band member, performed on main stages of some of the biggest festivals in the world, released a further two #1 ARIA Albums, and announced the departure of Lorenzo Sillitto from the band, and extensively toured globally. Don’t miss out on tickets to see The Temper Trap perform some very special Conditions shows.
Why: The best of in-flight entertainment’s pre-loaded music selection.
What: For ten years, Subsonic have constantly pushed the needle and hammered the subs. If the underground could see the light of day, and dance with the rays of the hot Australian sun, what would it look like? It’s with careful curation and enormous pleasure that they announce their biggest house and techno lineup to date. Accompanied by an incredible roster of bass, psy, and progressive stars, alongside talented live music artists and bands. This lineup is the fusion of old-school meets new-school; smashing legends and underground risers. No matter where you are, or what your flavour is at Subsonic, you won’t want to leave the dance floor.
Why: Unless you’re a human being over the mental age of fifteen with functioning auditory canals.
1) Good Things Festival
What: Good things festival established itself on the Australian festival calendar in 2018 bringing forth a new era for Australian alternative music fans, ushered in by an unstoppable army of some of the heaviest, and most alternative bands the universe had on offer. After its successful launch in 2018, good things once again returns for 2019.
Why: Remember that era of your life soaked in pathetic teenage disillusionment when you’d misquote Wikipedia-searched sections of anarchist poetry in attempt to try to carve out a reactionary identity? Imagine a whole festival dedicated to the soundtrack of that shameful era.
