Posts Tagged THE LOUNGE


To celebrate the fact that Fat Freddys Drop have not been here for what seems like AGES! and also because they made such a dope album (BLACKBIRD) we are going to party with the boys after their first show down at THE LOUNGE. It is $10 to get in, but FREE if you have a ticket to the gig. DJ’s will be MU, Chopper Reeds and MC SLAVE. It will be a JAM! Make sure you pop down to spread the good times.

The Bizness this weekend

The weekend is loaded with goodness! Friday night is BROWN SUGAR at the Lounge and Saturday night is another SCATTER SCATTER in the Grace Darling Basement. It’s great to see the funk back at the Lounge after such a long hiatus, and it’s coming back full force with the likes of Ennio Styles (RRR), Manchild (PBS, POAO + Northside) , Zack Rampage (PBS) and DJ Geezey (Wax Museum + The Dojo) – it’s gonna be an all-city party!

Saturday night is looking large as well… Beat Suite is on at the Melbourne Recital Centre (featuring Aloe Blacc,  Lance Ferguson and many more), and when you’re done with sitting down there’s relief – non-stop dancing with afro, cumbia and tropical disco action at the Grace Darling. Scatter Scatter #5 features the mysterious ‘Scatter Scatter House Band’, with DJs Future Roots and Manchild. This Scatter Scatter is highly anticipated after the disappointment of the last event being cancelled, so get in early. And a heads up to all the Afro-beat lovers – Scatter Scatter #6  coming up on June 1 will feature NYC’s Ray Lugo (Koloko). Watch this space… or check the Scatter Scatter facebook thing. Scatter Scatter!!
