It’s the weekend again!! Woohoo!
Plenty on this weekend, as always, starting with Frothing on Fridays at the Ginger Pig on Friday night – $10 cocktails, $5 Coopers and awesome music from DJs HA!YES! and Ant on Leaf – playing anything from cutting edge bass from San Francisco to underground tunes from Berlin!
Billy Bragg is playing at the Northern on Friday night – the English singer/songwriter and left wing activist always puts on a great show. He is supported by Courtney Barnett – and more live music all over Byron with Playwrite at the Beachy, Dave Scott Band at the Rails, lots of live dancehall and reggae at Buddha Bar and The Swamps at Frankie Brown’s.
Also on Friday – the brilliant Underscore Orkestra are playing at Kulchajam on the Arts and Industry Estate – gypsy jazz and swing with a Balkan twist! This will be an awesome night – don’t miss it =)
On Saturday – The New High, A Little Province and Joshua Swan at the Northern; Rhythm and Cutloose DJs at the Beachy; Hammer and Goon at the Rails and The Elliots at the Buddha Bar.
If you haven’t managed to check out Soho Lounge yet – head along on Saturday to see some live music featuring Paolo Noisi of the band Wandering Eyes – a great local band that played at last year’s Bluesfest in Byron!
Also recently opened bar Mr Jonson has had its doors open for a few weeks now – check it out on Bay Lane for Americana inspired mini sliders and other finger-licking snacks, and a 1920s flapper-esque Great Gatsby theme. Get your glad rags on!
And once again, plenty on for Sunday sessions this weekend – with The Hombres at the Beachy; Tim Stokes Band at the Rails; and slightly further afield – The Propellers at the Bangalow Hotel and The Feramones at the Brunswick Hotel.
Tango Argentine with Jan Rae is hitting the Buddha Bar from 6pm, followed by the Swamp Stompers at 7pm; and the Byron Community Centre is showing Transparentsea Voyage from 6pm – an amazing documentary featuring surfer and marine activist Dave Rastovich – which follows the making of 23 songs over 23 days.
And last but not least, if you don’t mind feeling a bit worse for wear on Monday morning – Shapeshifter are playing at the Northern on Sunday night.
Have fun!! xo
