It’s a miniature Splendour In the Grass reunion at The Lord Gladstone tonight, with five hours of rap spearheaded by Sydney’s best half-Serbian selector, Nes. She’ll be joined by Harry Hunter from the Bad Deep/Entropico squadron, while professional pilot and dancer Nacho Pop wraps up the Holy Trinity that’ll soundtrack your Friday night. Extra points for this very topical Pokemon Go flyer, too! Head along, lounge in the beer garden and eat a burger from the pub that brought you a Fuck Pauline Hanson party. Good times had by all.
After releasing her debut album Intra earlier this year, Elizabeth Rose keeps on trucking with a DJ set at Banquet. It’s all going down at The World Bar – we’ve had more than a few solid nights in this Kings Cross staple, and this Friday she’ll be joined by Teachesofpeaches from the Sidechains stable, Nussy coming all the way from the 3000 and plenty more. There’s also an emoji scavenger hunt on the walls, so find them and you’ll be rewarded with free beverages. Sounds like a good deal to us! It’s free before 10:00pm, so head down early and start searching.
After successfully throwing a Justin Bieber Vs. Justin Timberlake night in Sydney a few weeks back, DJ Levins is back alongside Captain Franco to throw an all-female night of iconic R&B anthems. This time around, it’s Roc Nation’s own Rihanna battling it out against the Beyhive, and we’re getting dizzy just thinking about the amount of smash hits that these two queens have churned out over their respective careers. Halfway Crooks are promising career-spanning sets that encompass everything from ‘Pon De Replay’ to ‘Work’ – while we’re also hoping for ‘Roc Me Out’ and ‘Needed Me’ to get dropped at least five times each. On the Beyonce side of things, expect some Destiny’s Child too! FlexMami will also be there spinning and stunting in a powerful outfit alongside Tulett & Kritty.
The UNDR Ctrl stable will be celebrating two years in the game with a huge soiree celebrating the best that Australia has to offer. Roland Tings’ DJ set will be balanced by a live performance from Rainbow Chan, while Motorik Vibe Council, Purple Sneakers DJs and Luen are just some of the Sydney selectors who will be taking the stage. Oh yeah, the don himself Kato will be going back-to-back with Bad Ezzy, while Ariane takes it all the way back to the 1990s with a Rhythm of the Night set. The party will also be raising funds for Oxjam, and there’s a dress code: All white everything. Get angelic and assemble your Coke Boys/Coke Girls crew ASAP.
Hot Dub Time Machine throws one hell of a party set – and he’s become so popular that he’s added yet another Sydney show to his only headline tour of the year. There’s only a handful of tickets left to this one, and with good reason: Spanning decades and more genres than you can count, Hot Dub Time Machine has a little but of everything for everyone in his live show. Jump along to this one and embrace the confetti with open arms.
