Central West Death Fest: Prepare those of the Orange

Posted by mothereel
Central West Death Fest

Central West Death Fest

 This weekend Orange is going to experience something truly unique.  An all ages Death/Grind/Doom/Hardcore one-day festival.  Organised by Hill Billy Josh who claims that it will run annually, it has a diverse bunch of bands and is super cheap!  The whole thing is going to be filmed and released on DVD.

Headlined by Mother Eel, Sydney's oldest grind based and most intense and disturbing live band with supports from Orange's own Infested Entrails, Blue Mountain's Festering Drippage (hot off the support slot for Macabre - and just announced support for Cock & Ball Torture) and Sydney's Lower Back Problems.  The bill is rounded out by locals Dead-Life, Newcastle's Empirical, other locals Near Life Experience and Once Within Reach.

It'll be more fun than recreating scenes from The Hills Have Eyes or Wolfcreek!

Such Is Life Fest 2012 – Goongerah

Posted by Matt

Friday 9th Mar, until Sunday 11th Mar
Goongerah, East Gippsland
Friday 9th - Sunday 11th March

Such Is Life is a DIY punk (heeeeeps crust) festival organised on a not-for-profit basis. It first took place in 2004 and is the only festival of its kind happening in Australia. This is a great little festival for those who love their music fast, food vegan and jackets heavily patched. Since attending/playing a previous Such Is Life  Fest this comes highly recommended although not for the faint hearted. Get some of your punk mates together and head to this to crust up. Don't forget the goon bag.

Camping space + limited amounts of food and beverages will be provided. Bands will play everyday. No dogs, no fires, no fancy lodgings, no sooks -camping only!

Gig Guide: 25/11/2011 – 27/11/2011

Posted by mothereel

There's a few gigs on around Sydney this weekend, but I'm not sure of the relevence to this blog.  Not like you attend them anyway do ya?

Naturally I'm going to put my interests first...

New Line Up, Still Good

All grind, all death, all 'good'

There has been a line-up change for the 3rd East West DeathGrind Fest and set times are posted up on facebook.

If you're cheap, but not too cheap, there's Lachlan's band having an album launch.

It is free entry to see a bunch of bands that have mentioned having problems with death metal, but you should buy an album... which isn't free.

Not to forget Friday, this is more doom than anything, but I've seen doom mentioned on here before, so...

And I'm bored of this.  Go out to a show.  Get info on other shows.  Stop relying on the internet.
