31/07: Sydney Weekend Gig Guide (Helm, Backyard Mortuary, Kill A Celebrity, Corpsickle)

Posted by Lachlan

I'm very hungover so I'll make this short and sweet. Friends; family; religion. These are the three things you must slay if you wish to succeed in grimness.


Tonight at the Lansdowne Hotel:
Kill A Celebrity (midnight)
Backyard Mortuary (11pm)
Beer Corpse (10pm)
Corpsickle (9pm)

This is Kill A Celebrity's 2nd last gig. We're going to do a final one probably around the end of the year with our mates and then we can both go on with our lives and pretend this never happened. I'll probably be giving away our new split CD with Krupskaya too. Why not?

Tomorrow night at the Bald Faced Stag: Helm are playing. Helm RULE. Check them out.

Love and doom.


Tonight at the Lansdowne Hotel

Posted by Lachlan

A bit of an off-beat event is going down tonight at The Lansdowne Hotel. The line-up features;

- A cock rock revivalist band called Jimmy Swouse and the Angry Darts, featuring members of bands like The Bakery, Brian Campeau, Squat Club, Brass Knuckles and the like.

- A obscene experimental 2 piece dubbed THE BZNZZ, featuring members of Ebolie, Brass Knuckles, Squat Club, Gauche, The Colours Tribute Band, Keating! the Musical and Darth Vegas amongst many more.

- A 15 piece noise band loving named Dyke Destroyer, featuring members of most of the aforementioned alongside Slimey Things, Kill A Celebrity, Anklepants, Day of the Meerkat, Cherry 2000 and many more.

You'll be there if you have poor taste in music, enjoy free gigs or have nothing better to do. I know I don't.
