20/11/2012 : PARTY OVER!
The new placed rocked! Also, special thanks to all those making the big interstate trips, the guys that have shown up after some absence. We look forward to next year, we will be back with a vengeance! Until then.
30/09/2012 : NEW VENUE!
As we have mentioned previously, a new venue was on the cards with some better atmosphere and closer to some of the things we need (food, alcohol, CBD)... The venue is essentially a small theatre, used for small bands/theatre screenings/film nights.
+ Two levels of space
+ Enormously top location in North Melbourne, which is basically an alley just off Errol Street (near Victoria Street). The #57 tram stops on Errol Street about 10 metres away, it is also about a 10 minute walk from North Melbourne station. Also a very quick walk to Queen Vic market/Elizabeth Street. Because it is just near Errol Street, there is stacks of places to eat etc. and an IGA too. You can walk to RaPa's (RadioParts) in about 2 minutes.
+ As it's essentially a theatre, they already have a projector/screen/PA/mixing desk/lighting desk. Also plenty of chairs and couches.
+ Venue has a bar. That aside, if it closes, there are stacks of excellent pubs that are literally a stone's throw away.
+ No noise problems, as the venue is used to bands etc. So let's make some noise so that Europe will hear us! :D
Get your Tunes / Demos / Graphics ready. Yes, you could work all night at the party and pull something off, but the more you get done before you arrive the better right? Oh, and prize / cash donations welcome and bring 'em on the day.
It's going to be crazy.
