13 BANDS YOU PROBABLY HAD NO IDEA EXISTED IN 2013

13 BANDS WEB MY SYDNEY RIOT
2013 has been a year of discovery for us here at MY SYDNEY RIOT and we have enjoyed getting to know so many amazing bands from all around the Country, but especially Sydney. This city is currently churning out some of the best unknown bands in Australia at the moment and it’s about time too.

We have actually come across many more awesome bands this year, but this is just a list of 13 bands that we realised had a couple of things in common, we had no idea who they were this time last year and on top of that none of these bands have any real radio support which also makes this little write-up all the more amazing and somewhat bizarre.

So here are 13 bands that you probably had no idea existed in 2013. You might wanna check them out in 2014. Yew! Continue reading “13 BANDS YOU PROBABLY HAD NO IDEA EXISTED IN 2013”

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
