MY BONDI RIOT RETURNS /// A FREE ALL DAY MUSIC FESTIVAL FOR A GOOD CAUSE

ART

Summer is about to kick in for Sydney once again and like all things MY SYDNEY RIOT you all know that we like to bring the best Party good times, celebrating life, friendships and most of all our love for the live music and art which surrounds us everyday.

The artists that are coming out of Australia right now are absolutely second to none and we encourage every single one of you to get out there to discover and support independent music right now!

This current wave of bands right now feels like the best era in underground music we’ve ever had since we first started pushing new bands back in 2006.

Like all our lineups MY BONDI RIOT is as good as a party is going to get. So get out of the house on Sunday 6 October (Labour Day Long Weekend) and come celebrate the good times with us.

So as per usual we’ll be pushing out 14 of the most amazing independent live bands we could find, Rock n’ Roll DJ’s, a world-class Barber, Tasty Eat Truck BBQ, Silent Disco (yes it’s back!), a Skateboard half-pipe, Sailor Jerry!, Skate and Surf Films and a very special Art Exhibition featuring works by talented local artists who will be painting portraits of their favourite music hero’s on Skateboard decks.

Raffle tickets will be sold on the day and if your ticket is called out you can head over to the Gallery and choose a piece of art to take home.

The show is a Breast Cancer fundraiser and all money raised will go towards our friend Pete Howard’s mum. So get ready to not only party but also do something good for a very important cause.

So we’re putting the shout out to our Friends and Music family to get along, enjoy a day in the sun with us at one of Sydney’s most amazing live venues and constant supporters of independent music; BEACH ROAD HOTEL from 12pm noon till midnight for a day you will never forget!

“Oh yeah and all of this is 100% FREE baby!”
“Seriously?”
“Yeah mon!”
“You can’t wait right?”
“Yaya!”
“See you at the Party!”

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ///
 
***RIOT ART EXHIBITION / BREAST CANCER FUNDRAISER FOR PETE HOWARD’S MUM***
Pete Howard is a good friend of MY SYDNEY RIOT and ex member of one our favourite Sydney bands THE CHITTICKS. 
 
We heard thru the grapevine that Pete’s mum had fallen ill to Breast Cancer and we wanted to do something to help out. We had a few false starts and then things we kinda left it there for a while. When the opportunity came to do MY BONDI RIOT again we discussed the idea of raising funds for Petes mum with the good people at Beach Rd. They thought it was a great idea and now here we are.
We’ve brought together some of our cities most talented artists to paint their favourite rock n’ roller or music hero on skateboard decks. That’s three cultures that we love and support; Music, Art and Skateboarding so we are stoked!
 
We are really looking forward to seeing all the artworks on the day. We also encourage any artists out there who’d like to get involved to get in touch via email: mysydneyriot@gmail.com – very limited spaces left.
 
Raising money for causes and friends isn’t a new thing to us, we just think that in times of trouble we as a community need come together to look after our own and to have the chance to do something for our friend and brother Pete Howard’s mum is an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. 
 
So on the day please bring change and buy a raffle to go into the draw to win a prize for an important cause.
Peace and Love

TRIBUTE /// REST IN PEACE AJAX

REST IN PEACE AJAX WEB

In a world full of time wasters and people who don’t take responsibility for their own shit, the passing of Australian dance music legend AJAX leaves us all totally dumbfounded.

AJAX has come a long way from the nights when he’d hop on the decks at Middle Bar Kinselas during lock in drinks while his friends heckled him from the bar. Unfortunately his life came to an end in an accident involving a truck in Melbourne last night.

He worked hard, was a lovely human being and was a true pioneer. Winning dj of the year awards many times over, he also played a big part in bringing Australian electronic music culture out of the underground to a wider audience along side his sidekicks BANG GANG at their legendary parties at Club 77 and around Sydney which took place deep into the last decade.

AJAX was a busy individual and was always on the go, but he always had time for people. There was always someone ranting in his ear, poor guy. Even I was in his ear about remixing a track. Typical egotistical band people being drunk hassling dj’s about remixes. Haha!

If there is a God out there, then he certainly has a warped way of showing his love, but if we are all just stars in an endless galaxy of energy then Ajax’s star shone brighter than most in 10 lifetimes.

News feeds are littered with heartfelt tributes today on this sad rainy day, like it should be for the passing of a legend.

Rest in Peace Adrian Thomas aka AJAX and love to your family and close friends.

Friends and fans can pay tribute to AJAX on facebook HERE

THE OWL PARTY /// A FUNDRAISER PARTY FOR OUR FRIEND BEN TILLMAN

A dear friend of ours, Ben Tillman (owner of Yours & Owls, Wollongong) was lucky to survive a massive car accident over the summer. He is currently recovering at Prince of Wales Hospital and is doing well.

His close friends have come together to put on a party/fundraiser to help with his recovery. So if you can make it to Wollongong (Just over an hour south of Sydney) this Saturday 19th January we’d love to see you there. It’s for a great cause and Ben is a special friend of ours, so please get along.

And for those of you who can’t make it to the show but would like to help out, we are putting together a Music Compilation filled with artists who are playing at the Party. This will be available for purchase this week right here on our website. Stay tuned.

FUNDRAISER FOR MY FRIEND BEN TILLMAN

Ben Tillman is my buddy and he miraculously survived a major car accident. Ben has suffered a spine injury and is now recovering at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney.

Ben runs ‘Yours & Owls’ and has done alot for the Wollongong music scene. We just wanted to raise some money to help out with any bills in the short term, but most importantly we want Ben to know that we care and we are thinking about him.

“Ben I know you’ll hate me for doing this, but you’re my bro and I love ya man! Hope you can make it to the gig!”
