Top 10 Sydney Revelry On this week 10/11/2019
You’re not a child anymore. It’s time to be seen and heard. If that makes you anxious, don’t worry. You’ll be drunk for most of it.
10) Way Back When: A Night of Classic Trance
What: Way Back When is a holistic evening of classic trance; in music, the DJ’s and the venue & production. It will remind you of the way trance was, or for those who missed out the first time, give you a glimpse into the past when trance was at its peak.
Why: So around the time when the target audience for this event was dripping through a hole in a condom.
9) T1000 presents Cristoph
What: Inspired by the Chicago house scene whilst growing up in Northern England, Cristoph sought influence from the sounds of acts like Masters At Work and the progressive tones of Sasha & Digweed, as well as his own upbringing. Heading into 2020 and beyond, dance music’s fastest rising talent is just getting started! Don’t miss this opportunity to catch him in an intimate club setting.
Why: Just like the version created by Skynet, the dance music DJ is entirely made of a liquid metal, meaning it can transform into any shape and has the ability to impersonate other people. Unlike the version created by Skynet, it does not have advanced reasoning capabilities, which is why they’ve decided to go ahead with the mass production of the model.
8) WeLove #226: Nakadia
What: The mighty girl from Thailand who provoked a techno revolution in her country and then allured to Berlin, Ibiza and all corners of the global scene is back for the 3rd year in a row. From the sweet Asian girl behind the decks to a worldwide respected artist, from the dark clubs to the massive festivals, from Asia to Europe and back – Nakadia is taking her career step by step from one level to the next.
Why: “Sweet”? Well, perhaps a spoon full of sugar does help the synthesizer go down. You can purchase that sugar from the guy in the third toilet stall from the left.
7) Spektrum presents Township Rebellion
What: Township Rebellion is a electronic music duo from Germany. Influenced by all kinds of music genres, they managed to create a unique style & sound with a mix of techno and house music. When it comes to playing, ‘Township Rebellion’ are regular faces in the German club and festival scene, often rocking crowds in the thousands with their perfectly crafted sets.
Why: The Germans do have a talent for riling up mass crowds with perfectly crafted sets.
6) Legion presents Sins Of Insanity
What: Welcome to Legion’s official launch party featuring Sins of Insanity for his first ever performance in Australia! Get ready for Sydney’s Hardest Electro Friday night!
Why: It’ll get you hard. Well, your liver at least. It takes a lot of liquor to be able to endure an electro rave.
5) K-pop Live feat. Cheetah and Verbal Jint
What: K-pop Live will be hosted by SBS PopAsia’s Andy Trieu and headlined by two of Korean pop’s finest – Cheetah and Verbal Jint – as well as incredible Korean dance groups. The event is set to attract thousands of Korean pop fans and curious Sydneysiders who want a taste of this international music phenomenon.
Why: Imagine an endless production line of perfect performing robots. Then imagine those robots are capable of inflicting and experiencing the consequences of pain, bodily harm, prostitution and molestation. Then dance, sasaeng!
4) The Joy of Wine
What: The Joy of Wine is a veil-lifting guide to that most sensual of beverages. Celebrate the joys of the grape in a multitude of positions, from the wildly exotic to the missionary. From emerging talent and labels contending for the next Young Gun of Wine Awards to some of the best wines from blind tastings and editorials for, the event will feature winemakers and other pros slinging wines. Sip and spit, or slurp and swallow, whatever takes your fancy. Talk your way through it, or keep your lips sealed. It’s your choice. Guests roam between all four venues across the course of the event.
Why: Oh…joy. They’ve added walking without falling over to the consumption of vast quantities of wine. They’ve really understood their target market.
3) Arj Barker: We Need To Talk Tour
What: “Hey, you got an hour? Look, I’ve been doing a shit-ton of thinking about… us, and where we’re headed. This isn’t easy, but I need to be 100% honest with you, even if what I say makes you laugh, very, very hard.You had better sit down for this…” Australia’s adopted son of comedy returns with his brand new show We Need To Talk.
Why: One of the worlds most sellable comedians. So. You already know the pitch.
2) 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”.
1) Scene & Heard Festival
What: After its Newcastle debut last year, Scene & Heard Festival is returning for another year this October. Your class of 2019: Wolfmother, The Dandy Warhols, Eskimo Joe, Alex Lloyd, Sneaky Sound System, Jebediah, Magic Dirt, Even, Potbelleez DJs, Andy Murphy & John Course.
Why: Be catapulted back to the distant world of 2006ish. You may think it ridiculous for those young in the 2000s to experience nostalgia already, but have some sympathy. Their version of Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ is a smoking crater.
