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
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!
