For those who aren't aware, this blog [and the amazing group we represent] are planning to hold an event in the second week of next term at the uni bar at New England Uni [where most of our bloggers are from]. The date [as you most likely know] is Thursday May 8. Our purpose is to basically provide a "scene" or place for those after something slightly different in a night out in the 'dale. If you're familiar with Sydney Indie club nights like Purple Sneakers then you may have a better idea of what we're trying to do. Our DJs aren't pros, they're a bunch of awesome people with amazing taste in music and we're also extremely fortunate enough to have The Seabellies play for us [and do a dj set if we're lucky], this band is probably familiar to anyone in the loop with the Aus music scene, they won a nationwide competition last year which resulted in them playing the first ever Australian V Festival. I guess they're kind of a cross between Dappled Cities and Arcade Fire if you were to make comparisions... but ultimtaely they're an amazing and unique group, listen to their music on myspace its quite beautiful.
Homecoming is one night only so don't hold back, it will be amazing.
Oh and the name? A few names were thrown around but Homecoming was unanimously decided upon. Aside from the obvious connotations it is a great song by The Teenagers [which you'll no doubt hear on the night]. There is a small cost of $5 and every patron through the door gets entered in a comp to be drawn before the 'bellies hit the stage to win a stack of new CDs and some other cool stuff. Doors open 8pm and its 18+. Hope to see you there xxx
P.S. Feel free to use any of the images we've made for Homecoming [or make your own if you want!!!] and tell your friends.
