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

BONDI RIOT NOT CRONULLA RIOT!

So many people came out to the Beach Rd Hotel last Saturday night to celebrate the Australia Day Weekend and locally made music it was not funny. You really had to be there to experience what went down, but from start to finish the bands that played all came out with guns blazing and the night was hands down one of the coolest parties we’ve put on to date.

The over capacity / sold out Beach Rd Hotel got down to the LIAR Awards 2011 Best new comers Bang! Bang! Rock n’ Roll and  the awesome Valley Floor (qld) who both played tight sets, receiving mass appreciation from the early birds, followed by Mylee Grace & the Milkshakes who bought everyone together for a dance off du jour and so did Gerrringongs The Bungalows who played their best live set to date, starting the first of many sing-a-longs of the night. Betty Airs ruled the stage and their cover of Bad Moon Rising is second to none (record dat shit boys!). Sticky Fingers had all hearts in a flutter as they spread the soulful good vibes around the room. Then it was time for the Goons of Doom, well no one in this town knows how to rock a party like the Goons do, the party was well and truly on fire. With Killerwhale playing his return show with the Goons the gig was made all the more special, a night we will never forget.

Beautiful women, cool cats, punks and newbians gathered together and we all simply partied for the love of friendship, good times and music. Yes there were a couple of boofheads in the crowd pushing people around, so we apologize if anyone got hurt, but overall from all reports everyone had a ball.

Downstairs after the show looking around at all the sweaty and happy people it was like we had all survived some kind of war, a fight for the very survival of what we believe in – Our Music. And I think we’re winning. Holy Fuck!

Thanks for coming out to support these bands, they are worth all their weight in gold. Big thanks to the bands (go check them out!) and thanks to Meg (best door biatch), Sarah for the tunes! Jimmy for takin care of sound and The Beach Road, especially bar manager and the cool staff. And thanks to Bert Newton. Copland!

See you at the next Party!
