Top 10 Sydney Revelry On this week 03/11/2019
It’s time to return to this and that. ‘This’ being a geriatric 70s rocker and ‘that’ being the…other geriatric 70s rocker.
10) Sauti Systems x Tresillo
What: Two of the east coast’s most anticipated parties are combining for to bring a diverse and immersive experience in each other’s home city. Australia’s most iconic duo. Featuring: C-PASH, NAØMI, R.SÖZE, SANTORO, KODA, KENFO and SMILEZ.
Why: Look out, Kath and Kell. There’s a far more cartoonishly grating duo gunning for your top spot.
9) Funktrust feat. Stanton Warriors
What: One of Sydney’s most legendary club nights Funktrust is getting the band back together! Responsible for some the biggest mid-week hangovers, the FunkTrust family delivered a weekly residency of block rockin’ breaks, party style hip-hop and original uncut funk at The Globe and Hunter Bar since the turn of the millennium. Together with Rodd Richards Presents, FunkTrust invite you to do it all over again.
Why: Something to bathe your usual more…isolationist midweek hangover in a more favourable light.
8) Just Like In The Old Days
What: Just like in the old days promises to be an intimate night for all old skool Hi-NRG lovers. They have secured 7 of Sydney’s finest NRG DJs. The handpicked roster features DJs who have held residencies at DCM, NV, EP1, Temple and Blackmarket just to name a few. You can also expect an epic laser show as the icing to make your clubbing experience that little bit more special.
Why: Genres we’ve not even heard of are already considered ‘old school’? It feels like we should just skip the fifty years of gradually worsening liver and heart disease and just kill ourselves now.
7) Glowchella: Australia’s Largest Foam Party
What: Perfect Voyage will be hosting Glowchella: Australia’s LARGEST Foam Party! Expect top level DJs, foam cannons, free glow sticks & black light accessories, a private balcony-level VIP section, prizes and special celebrity guests.
Why: So this is how the rave pathogen is spread.
6) Melbourne Cup at Zephyr
What: Ascend above the city streets to an open air oasis, boasting panoramic views of Darling Harbour and front row seats to the 2019 Melbourne Cup. Sit back, relax and enjoy an afternoon of limitless beverage package, a sumptuous spread, DJ entertainment and prizes to be won.’
Why: The second best way to celebrate the second most stimulating manner of horsewhipping.
5) Worship 2
What: Like a cabaret night simmered with a queer party at inner west institution The Red Rattler, with heavy dashes of culture and community, Dyan Tai and Tammy present ‘Worship 2’! Dyan Tai and Tammy have once again curated a genuinely diverse line up of performers, all of whom will be presenting pieces around the themes of cultural practices, religious practices, identity and worship. Following the presentation of these performances all will pack the dance floor to experience a truly queer form of worship. Exploring the power and the freedom that can be found in a heaving dance floor, Fur Coat Club’s Nick Spurway will explore whether this is the defining transcendental experience of modern times.
Why: It’s a tall order. We’re pretty sure having our organs melted by as-of yet-inconceivable warfare will be pretty transcendental.
4) Suzi Quatro: It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll Tour
What: The “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll” Tour will see Suzi performing her greatest hits such as ‘Can The Can’, ‘48 Crash’, ‘If You Can’t Give Me Love’, ‘She’s In Love With You’ and ‘Devil Gate Drive’. All the hits, unbridled energy, powerhouse vocals, Suzi is a rocker who has perfected her craft over decades of touring, pure rock royalty, the Queen of Rock and Roll.
Why: There’s nothing psychologically discomforting about hearing a 69 year old woman sing, “Let your motor make me heaven bound, hang in, hang on, turn me on”.
3) Ian Moss: Matchbook Tour
What: Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of his iconic debut, Mossy and his four-piece band will hit the road in November and December 2019 for a national six-week run which will see the globally respected songwriter and legendary guitarist performing iconic tracks from Matchbook plus more fan favourites.
Why: The least memorable thing about your older neighbour’s fifth-favourite band is back.
2) Return to Rio
What: Dance yourself silly to some of the world’s best artists, sip on a cocktail by the pool chilling to some reggae or get your soul and funk fill at The Shack. Then recharge with a float along the river or some yoga and meditation before ending the day at the party to end all parties. Oh the fun you’ll have!
Why: It makes sense that it takes the mental acuity of someone who believes in the healing power of meditation to consider a line-up of generic electro DJs, “some of the world’s best artists”.
1) This That
What: The perfect road trip to start your summer, just a stroll down the road from the hub of Newcastle, This That is the ultimate festival to evoke your sense of adventure and explore a world where music meets next generation tech. As the season’s purveyor of trend and forward thinking, you won’t experience a sensory overload like this anywhere else.
Why: If they consider Newcastle a “hub”, they must have access to some strong, quality hallucinogenics.
