WE ARE SELLING TEES AT MY BONDI RIOT c/o LABEL STATE. CHECK IT OUT!

Our friends at LABEL STATE were kind enough to hook up some of the acts playing at  MY BONDI RIOT this week with T SHIRTS.

If you rock up on Saturday be sure to bring some extra coin to support this cool t-shirt incentive which basically helps bands get their merch out there without the crazy overheads. Sometimes it can cost a band between $350 – $500 before their t-shirts surface. LABEL STATE do all the hard work for you and send the tees to the fans door without any financial stress to the artist. So we encourage any band or creatives starting out to get on board with these cool cats and get your t-shirts quickly online and out there to your fans.

You can sign up HERE!

Check out our tees and some cool artist tees which are available right online now and at the show. Rad!

MY BYRON BAY RIOT RETURNS!!

Print

The MY BYRON BAY RIOT Party returns to THE GREAT NORTHERN on Saturday 25th May with a stellar lineup of some of our favourite bands on the independent music scene right now and we totally believe that you need to discover them all.

To open proceedings are a brand new Sydney band THE RUMOURS. We think these guys are doing something kinda left of field to what’s out there right now and it is unique and special. This two piece (drums, guitar and tails told with a husky attitude) are super stoked to be heading north and we hope you can all make it down early to catch them get everyone’s feet dancin!

If Janis Joplin formed a band that was loosely based one the modern 2 piece format in 2013 then THE DARK HAWKS would be it. We’re not really sure how we met these guys (pretty sure a big hangover was involved), but all we can say is this, THE DARK HAWKS FUCKIN ROCK! GO AND SEE THEM!

It’s common knowledge to all now that we love BEC AND BEN! A two piece romantic punk rock monster that give life to a simple format to create some amazing pop rockin gems. Now with the addition of a new bass player member these guys are surely going to get the Byron Bay party started just like we all know they can.

TSUN are a new band on the Byron Bay scene, their music resembles a soulful walk into the valley to lose your mind kinda trip. Definitely a unique fresh take on the psychedelic vibrations happening of late. These guys are definitely worth checking out and we totally know that they will bring the house down as headliners of this amazing lineup.

We can’t wait to see you again Byron Bay!

Good times!

5/21 FEATURED ARTIST – BEC AND BEN

5 BEC AND BEN

Artist: BEN AND BEN
City: Sydney, NSW
Style: Rock
Members: BEC and BEN

Sydney’s BEC AND BEN have hit the ground running, so unless you have been under a rock (do people still live under rocks?) you’ve most probably heard cool people talkin about this two piece who seem to be taking Sydney by storm.

Their sound is definitely a unique take on the rock n’ roll two piece formula and it’s safe to say there isn’t really another band doing this power stance kinda rock n’ roll pop and snap style (Bec on stand up drums / Ben on guitar / double vocals) on the scene here or around the world at this present moment. Yep BEC AND BEN are cool cats. Reow!

BEC AND BEN whose real names are Bec and Ben are already battle hardened and definitely have the chops to make it out there on the road. Believe us they’ve played most of our Parties this year up and down the East Coast and they’ve rocked out on and off stage without any dramas.

This punk rock duo have given 2012 a pretty good kick up the ass and we look forward with alot of excitement as to what they will be up to  in 2013. Independent artist of the week at Sydney’s FBi radio isn’t a bad way to end the year either.

Catch them this Saturday 8th December when they throw down with FOOD COURT, SMITTY & B.GOODE at FBi Social for the last time in 2012. So get down there, this could be their last gig before the world ends / begins.

LA FEMME – Photography by David Hewitson


Thanks to everyone who joined us at LA FEMME last Friday night. Big shout out to Mylee Grace and the Milkshakes, Bec and Ben, LourdesWarchief. Please check out these artists! Thanks to Tallow GallerySailor Jerry AustraliaAnnandale Hotel, all the visual artists and especially all our friends who came out and celebrated our love for the women who create art and music in our city!

LA FEMME is a celebration or women and their rights to freedom of creativity and free speech in Australia, a privilege that we take for granted.

We dedicate this event to our punk rock sisters PUSSY RIOT who are right now facing some pretty hard times in jail in Russia for speaking out against their Government.

Yes there’s not much we can do physically from here in Australia, but if we can inspire our friends and others to come together and celebrate our creativity, then in the long-term the future may one day be a brighter one for young women not only in Russia, but all over the world.

Peace and love. X
