With support from Australian music heavyweights like Flume, Flight Facilities, RUFUS, Anna Lunoe, Alison Wonderland, Peking Duk, Art vs Science, The Presets, Nina Las Vegas, Jagwar Ma, The Preatures, Yolanda Be Cool, Hayden James, Bag Raiders, You Am I, Sneaky Soundsytem and Lorde (who played her very first showcase at Goodgod.), it was only a matter of time the opposers Keep Sydney Open would realise what they did was a mistake.
In response to the Callinan review of the State Government’s lockout laws, the good people over at Keep Sydney Open are installing plaques outside shutdown venues in Sydney tonight to highlight the impact these laws are having on Sydney’s live music culture.
Each plaque will feature 18 internationally successful Sydney artists (and one Kiwi), at the venue they first started playing early gigs at.
Those venues include Hugos, Piano Room and Soho in Kings Cross to Phoenix, 34B, Q Bar, Spectrum and Flinders in Darlinghurst to The Lansdowne, Club 77 and Goodgod Small Club in the Sydney CBD.
Keep Sydney Open will be holding their second rally on Sunday, October 9.
