With Declan Burgess
The next New Slang has been announced and it’s pretty wicked. On Friday December 2 move your body down to the The Channel at Arts Centre Melbourne. Headlining this month is Alex Lahey, joined by Bec Sandridge and The Beths (NZ) as well as DJ Drew Partymore. It’s like Christmas and New Years coming early on the same night, You can grab tickets right now from bit.ly/newslang8 to get among the action.
On the topic of Alex Lahey, you can catch her live this Friday November 18 at the State Library as she helps celebrate with triple j Unearthed. It might feel like Unearthed has been around forever but they’re only just turning the big 1-0h and they’re throwing a huge birthday party right on the doorstep of the Melbourne Music Week hub. There’s also Allday, North East Party House, Ali Barter as well as some secret special guests.
The Unearthed party isn’t the only thing happening at the State Library this Friday. There’s also this little music conference called Face The Music. Presented by The Push and Melbourne Music Week, it’s the largest gathering music industry aficionados of all types this side of the equator. Friday is also #AusMusicTshirt Day and to celebrate the Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN) will be taking to the State Library steps to try and set an (unofficial) world record, and anyone can be a part of it. While the business bigwigs brainstorm, AMIN are attempting to capture the most Australian Music t-shirts on living bodies in one photograph. They’re looking for as many people as possible to don their fave Australian music t-shirt and meet up on the steps at 9.25am for a huge group photo like the ones they make you take in school. Afterwards instead of going back to class, all attendees are treated to a free performance from artist Nai Palm. Permanent photographic evidence of your attendance in an unofficial world record attempt and a free performance? That’s amazing, there’s no way you should miss this.
