Parties | January 31, 2018

Is anyone else still feeling scattered after the long weekend? I spent all day yesterday streaming the Grammys in a state of panic.


How did U2 get from Madison Square Garden to The Statue of Liberty and back so quickly? Is James Corden meant to be funny?


Then Tyler’s outfit sent me right over the edge . . .


Anyway, Barocca and a siestaLaneway’s on this weekend.

Freda‘s will play host to a three-hour DJ set by Brisbane-based producer Sampology this Saturday. Freda’s is promising “uncontrollable hip movement” which actually sounds dangerous and irresponsible.

A post shared by St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival (@lanewayfest) on


It’s that time of year again. Laneway will be making its way to SCA and Callan Park in Rozelle this weekend. The venue boasts world heritage parklands, natural amphitheatres, and sandstone buildings.


The lineup is stacked, featuring artists like BADBADNOTGOOD, Alex Cameron, Aldous Harding, Father John Misty, Cable Ties, Bonobo, Moses Sumney and Pond.


Things kickoff at 11am on Sunday. (Yeah. Plan your sickies now.)


Tix still available. 


04/02: Laneway After Party



Laneway kick-ons will be getting started at 8.30 at the Oxford Art Factory, featuring BADBADNOTGOOD, Kllo, and Roy Molloy on horn (Alex Cameron), amongst other local labels and friends.


Seriously, line up your list of Monday morning excuses now.

Let A$AP Rocky’s new track sort you.
