Top 10 Sydney Revelry On this week 10/03/2019
Thank us for today, Sydney. You’ll be too mired in regrets to thank us after St Patrick’s Day weekend.
10) Let’s Get Lit
What: Experience Sydney’s top international party. Light up the night with with hot DJ spinners Sky and Pet.
Why: One more event involved in the proliferation of arson-related jargon.
9) Let’s FIESTA
What: Come and enjoy five hours of the best Reggaeton and Latin hits mixed with some all time Spanish party classics, while floating around Darling Harbour and enjoying the amazing views.
Why: We’ll admit, this is the first time we’ve heard of the genre ‘Reggaeton’. And we feel that hearing the name of the genre precludes us from having to hear the actual music.
What: The official afterparty of Carnaboat. Featuring Saad, Flávio Valente, Renzy and Kadu.
Why: If your capacity for loud hybrid club music lasts more than five hours, consult a physician.
What: A hell of a party on a hell of a boat. Featuring non-stop carnival, funk and electro vibes with drinks and waves.
Why: You know what pairs well with sea sickness? Carnival food.
6) Selfish Weekend
What: Selfish Weekend features a sexy itinerary with everything from music to manifestation to masturbation, conscious cocktails and over $100 worth of gift bag loot to boot.
Why: They’ve said it so we don’t have to feel guilty about phrasing: A night of wankery.
5) St Patrick’s Day Weekend
What: Sydney goes green on St. Patrick’s Day and to celebrate, Side Bar’s throwing a HUGE weekend of parties to help bring out your inner leprechaun. After all, everyone’s Irish on St. Paddy’s right?
Why: “Everyone’s Irish”. So…experience for one day what it’s like to be a white Bostonian every day of the year!
4) Eagles World Tour
13th & 14th March
What: On this tour, the Eagles – Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Vince Gill and Deacon Frey – will be accompanied on stage by an incredible live band that includes a full horn section and full string section. As the Eagles’ appeal continues to transcend both generation and genre, don’t miss the opportunity to witness Eagles’ unmistakable West Coast harmonies and unparalleled song writing talent come alive as they return to Australia!
Why: Remember that time you thought you’d accidentally suffocated that bird and the reality of death crashed down upon you…and then the bird suddenly flapped it’s wings and limped away to live a seemingly endless existence? Like that but the bird is a 60s soft rock band.
3) Death Cab for Cutie ‘Thank You for Today’ Tour
11th & 12th March
What: Seattle’s influential indie-rock luminaries Death Cab for Cutie return to Australia. Adored for their shimmering songwriting and evocative alt-rock style, the veteran musicians will perform their recent ninth studio album Thank You for Today alongside their impressive back-catalogue of hits.
Why: So. We’re at that time when bands from the late nineties can be called ‘veteran musicians’, yet it’s insensitive to ask how exactly they inserted the metal skeleton into Cher’s corpse in order it to be able to perform ‘Dancing Queen’ live.
2) The Drop Festival
What: Following the surf and celebrating music, community culture and a love of the ocean, The Drop Festival is back for its second year. Featuring Angus & Julia Stone, Client Liaison, Hockey Dad, The Jungle Giants, Alex The Astronaut and Ball Park Music.
Why: Better get used to loving the ocean now. Thanks to unfettered global warming it’s going to be up to your neck in about ten years time.
1) Blue Mountains Music Festival
What: A three day festival of folk, roots and blues music, featuring selected artists from around the world and across Australia. Featuring: The four-time ARIA Award winning singer songwriter Katie Noonan with legendary cartoonist Michael Leunig and The Others – a trio composed of jazz supremoes James Morrison and Paul Grabowsky with Spiderbaits’ Kramm.
Why: Remember Katie Noonan? No? Remember desperately attempting to fend off your creepy relatives’ advances at your mother’s 50 birthday party? Yeah. It’s the soundtrack to that.
