Italian Books return to The Smokehouse, expect eviscerating frequencies and consciousness-altering vibes.
Local hip-hop electro punks Dystopian Sound Collective will be bringing their odd but always interesting brand of music to the party. Expect lasers and a whole lot of fog. Don’t expect to actually be able to see them. Although I have been informed that both band members are strikingly handsome and frequently dapper.
Talking Sleeve will be, er, doing something. Last time he performed at the Smokehouse he made a Pot Noodle. So the scope for what you might see during his performance is wide open. One thing for sure is that it will be fascinating and possibly thought-provoking. Especially if you like convenience food based noise electronica.
beard FX (a.k.a Louis) is one of the most talented guitarists we’ve ever seen on stage. Most guitarists play like they’ve got something to prove. Louis plays like he wants to take you somewhere special. Sexy tones and shuffling smooth beats. beard FX is always a joy to behold.
2 blind mice take an approach to music that we’re pretty sure you won’t have seen before. To be honest we don’t really know what will happen with this performance on the night. Prepare yourselves, and above all get to The Smokehouse early to make sure you don’t miss 2 blind mice.
The 4 O’Clock robots open the billing at this gig. You may have seen the full band doing their thing at The Smokehouse a few weeks ago, they were brilliant! For this gig we’re getting the electronica version, and we have no idea what to expect. But hey, if you went out to every gig knowing exactly what you were going to get, then what would be the point. You might as well stay at home and watch reality TV, but hey, you’re better than that.
For this event we are encouraging you to bring along and donate non-perishable foods, toiletries and sanitary products for The Bus Shelter project.
