Dover Street Studios Launch – Oh goodie

Yes that’s right, you heard it here first folks (or maybe not) there’s a new art studio opening up, oh goodie!















(we love nothingness, read on)


This one is called Dover Street Studios in Cremorne (Richmond (kinda) for those who don’t wanna google it or clicking the link (though please do if your a history nerd like me, its really interesting!)

But I tell you what, Cremorne is a fricken cool suburb if you haven’t heard of it. There are sum sick pieces of street art around by the likes of Dabs and Mila and Adnate and I’m pretty sure it’s vintage Porsche capital of Melbourne (yes I like cars,  cars can be beautiful works of art especially the early Porsche)

And just like them old cars, this studio is looking dam fine, with white walls and pine features it really speaks to my visual senses. Just full of  nice symmetry and contrasts.

Ok, it is time to confess, this is Rival Revolutions sister (or older brother) studio, so we are really proud of it. But that doesn’t distract from what it is. Rival has its whole underground funky feel, but at some stage you need a place where you can take your mum or potential clients to and they don’t get worried that your just an alcoholic bum. Usually judging by the stack of empty wine bottles and ciggie butts in the corner (we say corner, we mean bed, and we say bed, we mean cardboard boxes).

Anywho whatever you think, follow the old Rival Rule, come along to their launch party this Friday night, get drunk and see if there is anyone cool to talk to, and then judge. Oh and did we mention there is total BYO at this event? Its like a house party but good music playing. Oh Goodie.






Herakut Exhibition Opening at Metro Gallery, Armadale.

Tonight is the night that I have been waiting for, since I heard about in two weeks ago, Herakuts’ exhibition opening at Metro Gallery, Armadale.
If you havent heard about them, def give them a google but basically Herakut is the collabartation between German artists Hera and Akut and they paint awesome.
Really awesome.
Their exhibition opens at 6:30 on the 13th of Febuary at Metro Gallery in Armadale, Melbourne and if you dont go, your silly.
Or busy.
So go another day, when theres less people there.
But I cant wait, I’m going tonight, and again another day too probably.

Here’s a couple of shots of our recent gig at Revolver with the amazing band, Slow Down Earth. It was an epic night, we got well and truly drunk, painted our butts off and listened to some amazing music….couldnt ask for much more than that really. Although having said that, I did get too drunk to take any serious pictures of the live art….here’s what I got, next time you’ll just have to come along and see it for yourself.

Golly Gosh they have done it again, when will they learn?

 Oh these funny little people running around making a who-fa about nothing while were just standing here trying to make it through the day and not get our knees too wet, don't they realise we just need to get a little tipsy to make it all the more bearable? You see the lovely chaps at the local council , no doubt spurred on by the leadership qualities of the Australian government and the lure of the all might dollar, have decided that it is now (via litterally rewriting the laws) illegal for piccolo to have outdoor furniture between the hours of 4pm-7pm. Sounds strange right? We�

39;ll it is! But who are we to say what is right and wrong? We should blindly trust our wise and faithful leaders and just go ahead and enjoy our last night at Piccolo, hopful that the all mighty, all seeing, all knowing council have our best interest at heart. Which I am sure they do. We shall see you there from 6pm, with our bums firmly planted on the outdoor furniture, and any local council men and women are most welcome to join us for a little drink.

WHAT? Live art, Dj's and drinks

WHERE? Piccolo 149 High Street, Prahran

WHEN? Tonight from 6pm

WHY? To protest against the council by way of getting drunk.

Last Thursday Night @ Piccolo, 149 High Street in Prahran……

Argh man if you were there, I dont need to tell you just how silly and amazing it was. If you couldnt make it down, well do it all again this Thursday night, and every Thursday night…… so I’ll see you there for sure…..










Spent last weekend streaming Subsonic music festival up on the New South Wales coast with the OnlineClubber cats and was left with a great impression of the local EDM scene.
Big love for Kid Kodiak, Timmus and A Guy Called Gerald, I will be watching these guys a little more closely from now on.
On the international side, Max Cooper blew my fuc%ing mind and Anna Leevia laid down some really sweet deep house during her 8am – 10am set that has inspired me in a few ways. The crowd was diverse enough to keep me entertained during the times I just could not dance anymore. Mark this bad boy in your calendars or diary’s for next year….. 7th/8th/9th December 2012.

The GYFO show is still alive at Onlineclubber.com from 9-11pm (GMT + 10) Fridays.



Here is a new set for all you fans of Drumcode… a few favorite tracks taken from the 15YR anniversary album and smashed together….

Watch/Listen to it here or download for free
