This Summer is shaping up to be a hot one, and while everyone else is trying to get you to fork out money to stand in a packed, sweaty room and see some of the amazing acts coming to Australia, we have an international artist with a killer support lineup, for FREE!
“The Soundbytes Sunday Summer Session” is taking place on the 24th of Jan (The Sunday before Australia day) from 3pm, with an outdoor beer garden gig (with PLENTY of shelter in case it rains!) at The Penny Black (formerly Don’t Tell Tom) on Sydney Road in Brunswick.
We have a killer lineup, with headliner Marc Nostromo who is coming all the way from Belgium to play the show. Marc is something of a legend in chipmusic circles, having not only played around the world, including the biggest Chip festival in the world – Blipfest; but is also the creator of LittleGPTracker (AKA Piggy tracker). Check him out on his myspace at www.myspace.com/discodirt
Backing him up, we have some of Australia’s greatest chip musicians with 10K Free Men & Their Families performing his first Soundbytes show in over 6 months, as well as Maddest Kings Alive and Derris-Kharlan.
Last but not least, with enough interest we’re looking at running an open mic to kickstart the afternoon, so if you’re keen to show what you’ve got, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message to the organizer to let us know how many tracks you want to play and what you’re using (maximum of two tracks per person for open mic and needs to be minimal set up time)
The Penny Black has some great food and drink prices, and is easily accessible on public transport, so bring your mates and enjoy some of Australia’s greatest chip muso’s for a sunny Summer afternoon with Soundbytes!
