pakana performer Denni Proctor—joined by Greeley, DJ Dameza, and a rotating squad of accomplices—presents pieces from her newest EP: an almost—chaotic collection held together by her colourful voice and storytelling, as well as some older works and whatever fun her special guests bring.
Raw, explorative black metal from a Naarm three-piece influenced by Nusantara and ancient Javanese traditions. Let your hair down.
An assemblage of new and old surf footage and ephemera from Tassie film maker, designer and pro surfer Dion Agius, accompanied by a spontaneously composed live surf-rock soundtrack from Brian Ritchie and Associates. The band will be seeing the footage for the first time, guaranteeing truly responsive improvisation.
Saxophone quartet led by ex-New Yorker Phillip Johnston—featuring Tasmanians Danny Healy, Spike Mason and Tristan Meffre—play a suite of tunes by Steve Lacy (originally released as Saxophone Special), plus a handful of other Lacy works and originals of Phillip’s own. Plenty of saxophone, plenty of special.
