They also upload quite a lot of clips from other shows.  Much better than my effort with AusGrindTube....

Long Weekend Options pt 1: This Is Not Art

Posted by mothereel

Today is hump day.  If you're like me, which I hope that you're not, otherwise I'd probably have to change myself even further to attract people to make out with...  uuhhhh... oh yeah!  You may be thinking of the long weekend fast approaching!  Here's the first post of things you could potentially do and may actually involve some of the ol' blasty beats.

First option, and I'm posting it now so you've got a bit of time to get your wheels into action, is Newcastle's This Is Not Art festival.  It started as a part of the Writers Festival and the Electrofringe Festival, both taking place in the area.  The two float into and out of each other seamlessly and there's lots to do.  Here's the link to each day's schedule, with my personal highlights:

Friday
Highlights:
Get Rid of Gina
Who Killed the Avant-Garde? Apathy and Contemporary Art
The Right Stuff

 Saturday
Highlights:
Authorial Ethics in a Self-Authoring Age
Sonic Ontology: The Art of Noise
The Book of Hours

Sunday
Highlights:
Electrofringe Showcase
Zine Fair
Closing Night Party

More importantly, while you're up there, there's this good 'un gig!
https://www.facebook.com/events/156595287865268/
Featuring Flowers for Cops from Victoria and some localish bands.    8 bands for $5.  That's pretty great.  You'll have to click that link to get the list of bands because I'm pushing you out of your comfort zone.

What are you looking to do?  Any other gigs or events?  Got anything you're looking out for at TINA?

Long Weekend Options part 2 comes up on Friday.  Got something that needs to be there?

Mid-Winter Mountains Masonic Hall Gig

$5 entry to the best night of your life. Dress code is Op shop formal.

$5 entry to the best night of your life. Dress code is Op shop formal.

 

Tonight is a show that is being called "the best night of your life", which for me isn't much to top*.   Featuring a slew of bands from the Blue Mountains, all with a harder hitting edge to them, but with different variances on the punk, hardcore, metal or rock genres, it'll be a great gig.

The night aims to end before the last train down the mountains and at only $5 entry it's a steal.  It's also All Ages, so you can educate your kids.  On the hush is that the event is also BYO!!

So get into dress code, Op Shop Formal, get on a train and get there tonight!
