MY SYDNEY RIOT TOP 5S OF 2014

It’s a brand new year and while you’re lying there nursing your hangover we thought we’d do you a favour and let you know what 24 of our favourite people thought about the year that was 2014.

We put the word out and mostly everyone came back to us with their favourite releases of 2014. It didn’t have to be one thing, it could be a single, an EP or an LP.

So thanks to all the legends who took part in our last-minute survey. Please make sure you click on their links and give them a like and stay up to date with their creative movements. These people are some of the most unique, talented, hard-working up and coming cool cats on the scene today. So lucky for you, we’ve given you some insight into some artists that you may not have known till today. So do yourself a favour and give them your support in 2015!

There’s links next to each artists choices, so who knows you might even discover some new tunes or artists that you might have missed during the year that was 2014.

Stand outs; Newcastle’s The Owls & Brisbane killers Violent Soho get 3 mentions, Hype band DMA’s get 4, Aussie favourites Sticky Fingers get 5 mentions and Sydney Soul punks Fait Accompli get 6.

#CHOLO!

We’re looking forward to doin what we set out to do in a big way in 2015! The last year has given us some pretty important lessons and major discoveries too, it’s time to get into the groove.

If you’d like to get involved then give us a hoy via email: mysydneyriot@gmail.com

May 2015 be the year where all your dreams come true. Thanks again for your ongoing support!

THIS IS NOT THE END /// BUT THIS IS THE FINAL WEEK OF ‘CANTEEN’ IN BONDI

Back in the early part of 2012 we got involved with a new venue called CANTEEN, located on the main strip of Bondi Beach. Every Thursday our weekly night RESIDENTS booked a whole lotta new bands to play at CANTEEN and some of the most amazing good times have been had by many friends and bands who have passed through over the last couple of years.

Unfortunately due to the nature of the Swiss Grand Hotel needing to renovate and make the building into another cash cow for the rich (baha!) CANTEEN will be looking for a new home.

So yeah this week is the final week, after this Sunday CANTEEN will be no more, well in Bondi.

So here are a few highlights for us…

– The Mylee Grace month-long residency which ended up getting extended for another month. We all still regret it didn’t stay for three months.

– Witnessing the talents of the following bands; THE CHITTICKS, THE JONES RIVAL, BEC AND BEN (thanks to Helen!), THE VERNONS, PIRATES ALIVE, THE RUMOURS, B-MASSIVE, VIOLET PULP, THE OWLS, MAGIC BONES, PAPERCRANE, NEW LOVERS, HIGH-TAILS, BIG WHITE, PILOTS, THE TROUBLED ROMANTICS, BONEZ, VIRGO RISING and many more…

– That night when GOONS OF DOOM, OTCHKIES and THE RUMINATERS gave us faith that this place actually rocked!

– That night ELEGANT SHIVA and THE DARK HAWKS tore CANTEEN a new a**hole and people were lined up down the street.

– When one of this Country’s most underrated solo artists DAVOR PAVLOVIC (brother of Steve Pav – Modular Records) aka OLD TECHNOLOGY humbly came in at late notice on many occasions and played some of the most soulful tunes and then left many people either confused or totally blown away.

– The jukebox giving dj’s a run for their money.

– Who could forget GOONS OF DOOM New Years 2013? or remember it? Haha!

– That lock-in that happened on a cold Tuesday night? WTF?!!!! ps: When Aya says it’s a casual night of him playing acoustic guitar, don’t believe a word he says!

Which brings us to this weeks farewell party. Together with CANTEEN we invited some of our favourite bands to come together to help us celebrate what has been an amazing couple of years. And from tonight till Sunday CANTEEN will be heaving with some of the most amazing musical talent from all around. So please do yourself a favour and get down to one of the shows. We advise you to come early to avoid any disappointment.

A big reason behind this week is to simply thank you all for your love and support, the other reason is because we just wanted to give something back to CANTEEN and the music community at large for giving new bands the opportunity to play some pretty amazing and special shows that many of us will remember for years to come as part of the beginning of a special journey for many of these amazing artists.

Thanks for the good times CANTEEN. We look forward to what comes next. If it’s anything like it has been then of course you guys will be walkin on rainbows.

WORD ON THE BEACH!

MY SYDNEY RIOT X

CANTEEN FINALE-PARTY

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

RIOT RADIO /// MSR PIRATE RADIO SHOW FINALLY LANDS ON THE INTERNETS

Finally after a few false starts RIOT RADIO (the podcast) is finally here. Yes our Pirate radio show is finally out there in the world for all to hear and for you to discover the music that is lurking below the underground music scene of Sydney and around Australia.

Depending on who you speak to you’ll hear different versions about the state of unsigned independent music in Australia. We’re going to challenge all theories out there and present to you a community of some of the tightest still to be discovered bands on the planet. You’ll be surprised to learn that most of the bands we are pushing don’t get massive radio play here in Australia, we think they deserve to be heard.

We’ll try our very best to bring you RIOT RADIO as often as humanly possible. Once a week is the mission, but yes it all depends on how busy we are around the office. haha!

Thanks for your support. Share RIOT RADIO with your friends!

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
