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

382319_10151336027315617_709645032_n

So we got a call from the good folks at BONDI BOWLARAMA and they said “could we get the hook ups on all the dope bands you guys know?” so we said “yeah! why not?” and then we hooked them up with music by some of our favourite bands. A few days later they came back to us with these dope videos and we said “thanks that shit is like WOW!”

It was a sick time last week in Bondi where some of the most amazing skaters poured into town to show Bondi how skating in a pool should be done, from the amazing Steve Caballero to Pedro Barros, our very own Jack Fardell to Bucky Lasek and even legends like McGill and Hosoi, dat shit was Hectic! So now some amazing bands will have a life long connection with these amazing legends till the internet ends. Radical!

So get your sk8 vibes on and check these videos out and listen out for the amazing bands.

More exciting things to come on the BOWLARAMA front too. So stay tuned!

11/21 FEATURED ARTIST – PIRATES ALIVE

11 PIRATES ALIVE 1

Artist: PIRATES ALIVE
City: Gold Coast. Qld
Style: Psychedelic Surf Rock
Members: Sam, Jarryd, Michael

Three piece PIRATES ALIVE are a solid young Good Vibes Psychedelic Surf Rock band from the Gold Coast. These guys have rocked out at many of our parties this year, building themselves quite a strong live reputation out there on the road.

Living in the sunny Gold Coast has already inspired some amazing gems such as the catchy ‘NO ROMANCE’ and ‘SUNSHINE GIRL’, but touring has allowed PIRATES ALIVE to really stretch out and evolve as a unit.

A willingness to move into darker territories, displaying their love and appreciation of more psychedelic colours is really paving the way for a deeper and soulful sound. Their latest single MODEST shows an exciting glimpse into what is still to come from PIRATES ALIVE. The darker and emotional energy of Modest suits them to a tea, a ‘breakaway’ from their past catalogue, opening up the door to their ongoing evolution.

We are very excited to hear future releases in 2013 from these guys, because together with their knack for writing cool melodies, the mix up with this heavier darker sound will definitely create some rewards for PIRATES ALIVE and all future lovers of music alike.

Keep Rockin!

FREE PUSSY RIOT!

MEDIA RELEASE: THE FREE PUSSY RIOT PARTY COMES TO BYRON BAY

Politics seems to be the current language of choice for many creative groups lately. Sydney’s My Sydney Riot have been getting behind a lot of causes to date and very recently they have been engaged with the Free Pussy Riot worldwide movement. After releasing a 20 track music compilation, a drum event in Taylor Square and a packed out event at Flinders Hotel in Sydney a few weeks back, My Sydney Riot decided to bring the Free Pussy Riot party to the Great Northern, Byron Bay, one of the most exciting live venues in Australia.

On Saturday 6th October a special lineup of independent bands will come together for one night only; Fait Accompli (Syd), Pirates Alive (Gold Coast), Mylee and the Milkshakes (Syd), Bec and Ben (Syd) and locals The Deers.

Also featuring on the night will be the official debut screening of a short film by local Byron Bay label Tallow Gallery starring talented young up and coming surfer, Cloudy Rhodes. The film titled ‘Journey’ (preview above) sees Cloudy traverse through some epic landscapes from South Africa to Mozambique and Swaziland. This film ties in with the important message that women and all humans alike have every right to get out there and share their stories with the world, a right of passage which unfortunately still remains a rare concept in many societies, even in these modern times. This film is not to be missed.

So bring along your friends, dress colourful or bring a colourful balaclava and a smile and help us celebrate our right to freedom of speech, a right which wasn’t afforded to the three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot, Yekaterina Samutsevich, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova who are currently serving two years jail for speaking our against their government.

Come out and dance Byron! FREE PUSSY RIOT!

Yes the Great Northern, one Australia’s most exciting live venues agreed to have us. Joining us on the night will be; FAIT ACCOMPLI (Syd), PIRATES ALIVE (Gold Coast), MYLEE AND THE MILKSHAKES (Syd), BEC AND BEN (Syd) and THE DEERS (Byron Bay), so yes we’re bringing a crazy party of good times to boot.

Also featuring on the night will be the special debut screening of a breathtaking short film by local Byron Bay label TALLOW GALLERY starring talented young up and coming surfer with punk attitude aplenty, Cloudy Rhodes. The film titled JOURNEY sees Cloudy traverse through some epic landscapes from South Africa to Mozambique and Swaziland.

Our goal is to inspire friends to speak out using creativity as a positive force to create change through music and art. The sponsors and supporters who come on board don’t support us as a marketing ploy, instead we have all felt a natural human urge to come together and give our time freely as we stand side by side in solidarity to support our jailed sisters PUSSY RIOT and stand up for our god given right to Freedom of Speech. Nothing more and nothing less.
