Another weekend rolls around here in Byron Bay! (ummm…and in the rest of the world…)
The major event this weekend is of course the World Cup!!!
The Beach Hotel are opening early to show games and serving coffee and breakfast, the Buddha Bar cinema will be showing games that evening, and Ginger Pig are opening for all 8am games and selected 5/6am games – and doing breakfast with a coffee or a beer (yeehheeewww) for $20!
The first game is tomorrow morning!! At 5am – the Ginger Pig will be opening for it if you are a stupendously early riser 🙂
The Australian Burlesque Festival is on at the community centre tonight if you have a spare $65 and want to see some naked ladies!
Melbourne band The Paper Kites are playing at the Northern on Friday night, and at the Beachy we have Leigh James at 5pm followed by House of Laurence at 9.30pm. Pink Zinc are the the Rails if you fancy some covers.
For something slightly more high brow, the Melbourne Ballet Company are in town and performing their show Infinite Space – at the community centre at 7pm.
Also Glo Dance is once again taking place out at Durrumbul Hall – this really is a fantastic night – The Link, Murray Kyle and DJ Pulse are playing this time.
On Saturday – after hitting one of the early openers for the Australia Chile game – there are some local bands playing at the Northern; Waxhead, Elegant Shiva and Black Tongue; DJ Discrow at the Beachy and Tristan O Meara Band at the Rails,
Saturday also sees Truth from NZ and Xsetra and Windcard from Oz playing at the Buddha Bar and Bree Bullock at Frankie Brown.
The Byron Theatre (in the community centre) are showing Last Paradise – a beautiful surf film which is well worth a watch.
On Sunday, we have Jesse Higgs at the Northern, The Daze at the Rails and DJ Helmy at Buddha Bar. Also at the Beachy Lisa Hunt is playing from 4.30pm – its been a while – she is so much fun to dance around to! If you fancy going out to Brunswick Heads, Late for Woodstock are doing a Sunday session out there too.
The Brackets and Jam live jam session will also once again be taking place at the Ginger Pig too!
Have a great weekend folks!! xo
