Hello folks!! I’m back after my two and a half week hiatus over to the Wild, Wild West. It’s great to be back in Byron Bay after some chilly Perth weather!
This weekend sees plenty of live music, spoken word, collaborative art and other awesome shindigs – so as always, plenty to do – which is good for me as I can keep the post-holiday blues at bay.
First up, on Friday night we have bands and DJs galore… Leigh James is at the Beachy from 5pm, followed by Jakubi + Everyday Carry from 9pm; Bohemian Cowboys are at the Rails (always great for a dance); E-Lion is at the Buddha Bar and Aquarius are holding their now weekly open mic night with fresh local talent and tapas.
If you are stuck for something to do on Friday afternoon – the Northern is holding a White Ribbon fundraiser featuring MC Ellen Briggs, and Rohin Funkmeister Knight and the Cumkuats – from 12pm.
The Northern are following this up with local boys Vernas Keep, with The New High and Andrew Morris, playing from 8pm.
On Saturday, Pandamonium DJs are at the Beachy from 9.30pm, Little Bastard are playing at the Rails and the Northern has a triple whammy of live music with Younger Dryas,Tropical Zombie Duo and The Silver Dollars.
Also – the Buddha Bar are hosting an amazing musical talent from Brisbane – The Lyrical. He is playing from 8pm, showcasing his mix of beat boxing, folk guitar and socially conscious lyrics. Not to be missed!
And last but not least, Sunday is a happening day in Byron Bay this week – starting with Throwathon and Jesse Pumphrey at the Northern, and Lionheir at the Rails. The Beachy are amping up the Sunday sessions this week with Ragga Jump from 4.30pm, followed by Elementals at 8pm.
Buddha Bar are hosting their Byron Social Motorcycle Club (The Ride II) which is perfect if you like fast bikes and those that ride them; followed by Tango Argentine (fitting what with the World Cup result!!) at 6pm.
For something a little different, hip hop artist/poet Luka Lesson is performing at Kulchajam from 5.30pm – go to https://www.facebook.com/events/1413834622234345/ for more info! Tickets are $10 on the door.
And out at the funky ArtYard in Bangalow – Artwomb is coming that bit closer to town! This amazing collaborative art, music and food event features local musicians, interactive jam stages, a veggie feast and the main event – a large shared canvas where everyone can go and play with some paints! Starting at 2pm, this will be an awesome Sunday afternoon.
Have fun everyone!!
