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!”
“You can’t wait right?”
“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: firstname.lastname@example.org – 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
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!

New video by SAMOAN PUNKS.
DISCOVER SAMOAN PUNKS!
Artist: SAMOAN PUNKS
City: Bankstown, NSW
Style: Samoan Punk
Members: Samoan people
We discovered SAMOAN PUNKS on a holiday we had in Samoa late last year. They were on their way to New York then to Sydney this year and apparently their goal was to spend their time following the winter between Sydney, Samoa and New York.
Recently we heard news that they were planning a big stadium tour of Samoa in December 2012. Unfortunately the tour had to be postponed due to Cyclone Evan.
We’re hoping that these guys will get back to Sydney and play some shows over the summer but it’s highly unlikely because rumour is they are headlining the Big Day Out in the Pacific islands in 2013.
SAMOAN PUNKS are currently working with big time producer Mr Garageband on a new record surfacing sometime in 2013. But for now you can grab their debut album ‘LAST NIGHT IN NEW YORK CITY, TAKIN BUDDY HOLY TO KARAOKE!’ and their new 3 track ep ‘COOL YOU SUX’ for free at their Bandcamp site HERE.
SAMOAN PUNKS recently took out 17 trophies at the Samoan Music Awards including Video of the Year for their song COOL. They also pipped Australia’s Gotye at the finish line for single of the year with their song COOL (it’s all the rage!). They also took out the the greatest Samoan punk band award. SAMOAN PUNKS are very excited about the award and had this to say “We are very excited about the award!”.
Their big hope right now is that their application for permanent residency in Australia will come through. They’re currently living at Villawood detention centre but were pardoned by the Queen to attend the Samoan Music Awards. Word on the streets is that they are very keen to settle down in Bankstown or Bondi, so keep an eye out.
“SAMOAN PUNKS ARE THE GREATEST SAMOAN PUNK BAND IN THE WORLD!” Their words not ours. Check it!
