Consolador de Dos Caras is a great Wednesday night at La Campana (55 Liverpool St) - run by the lovable scamps over at dualpLOVER and Tenzenmen. These guys put on some extremely cool experimental bands, DJs and artists. The range of music they get in is truly remarkable, and is very much worth your support.
Tonight they've got some killer Osaka electro breakcore/grindcore/hardcore/gabber violence for anyone sick enough to dig that kinda music. I just heard Maruosa and I know I'll be trying to get my arse there. It sounds fucking amazing.
If you have any doubts about this post being appropriate for an Australian Grindcore site, just go watch the video at the end of this post and then promptly shit yourself.
Maruosa (JAP): French from the This Is Not Art festival. Morbidly cut up, edited death throes screaming, sonic head banging, blast beats and breaks.
Volzoy (JAP): A breeder of hard beat with layer harmonics in jungle, drum n bass and hardcore.
Numb'n'Dub (JAP): The new Japanese breakcore: speed blasting electronica screamo and scrap melodic metal into brutal hip hop. Insane blasts.
Go Genre Everything (VIC): heavy bass deep marine foam splash of grunted heavy power blands such as tuflygagagash and thrudmuscle, though, have now taken a trip to the far future with new shoal flock bleats of regular blend mineral rich rock and roll with a scented tinge of cola occasional lounge tweed... what?

Man you wont wanna miss this. The infamous Channel ? are putting on some kind of crazy multi-floored party with 40 odd DJs (with a dedicated breakcore stage!) and some funk/rock bands like Rumpunch, The Day of the Meerkat and The Fuji Collective.
Apparently it's in a building in the middle of the city on the 14th floor with 360 degree city views. We wont know until crunch time as the venue is not to be posted anywhere. You have to call 0450 426 260 to find out the venue on the night, which is apparently just 5 minutes from the CBD.
This sounds like an unmissable event if you ask me. I'm going to go listen to some Municipal Waste in anticipation.

SCUM ASYLUM (Breakcore) Presents On level 2:
You know what kicks arse? Breakcore.
You know how grindcore is essentially the most chaotic, fucked up, fast, neck breaking, mind fucking, shit ruining, violent music in the extreme punk/metal realm? Breakcore is essentially the equivalent in the electronica world - shit so fucking complex, fast and insane that the vast majority of the world is reduced to a screaming, thrashing mess of "TURN THAT FUCKING NOISE OFF!!!".
Anyway: I love it and I think it's insanity has the potential to appeal to fans of some grindcore. So much so that I am thinking about putting on a grindcore vs. breakcore show. Some examples include some of the work of Aphex Twin, Venetian Snares, Squarepusher and probably others.
I haven't been to any local breakcore gigs myself, so there are a few DJs on this show I will be on hand to hear. Furthermore, it's a party - and lets face it, you have nothing better to do. Come down and get mangled with us. Some names playing are: Killjoy, Cat-Grrl, Maladriot, Rainbow Ejaculation, Anal Erection, Unhappy Animals Make Bad Meat, Abortifacient, Eject, Dalit, B.I.N.T.
EDIT: change of venue!
