Always lots of lushness at dark mofo, I think Ryoji Ikeda's doing something as well, he usually has an installation every year. I'd love to go again just for the art, but I'm hoping for a Sweden/Norway/Netherlands holiday at the end of the year so am putting *most* of my money into that..

Yes, after the excruciating work miss of 2010, folded for a $220 event/return.

I decided to go for Tassie, so I can hit Autechre on Friday night and Haxan Cloak on Saturday. Lineups for both of those nights look excellent.

 

Looking like I'll be traveling solo so I'm in for some sort of WATMM meet up.

Partner and I Travelling to Melbs for this one! The Croxton seems like a better venue than Max Watts (rebranded HiFi Bar)? Any Melb peeps have experience with the venue?

I think it'll be better. I never liked Hifi bar for rock bands, let alone electronic music. Croxton looks mostly carpeted so the acoustics will hopefully be better.


edit: also super keen for a dinner/pre-drinks meetup somewhere nearby beforehand.. or even at Bar SK or something (it's a tram ride from there to venue but easy).

Just scored Melbourne tickets. Venue looks a bit out of the way. Whoever is local and wants to specify a place to meet to have a few drinks beforehand i'd be down for that. Last time i said the same thing but was not in a state to be meeting new people by the time it came around :/ This time will be different ha.

edit: I could still ride down. if I left the minute the Syd show ended lol.

Fuck yeah! Will be great to see you again!

I live pretty close to the venue.. not walking distance but similar distance from the city. I'm glad it's not in the city, tbh.

 

I'll have a look around the area, there are a few places we can meet up beforehand; I'm pretty sure Croxton has a non-bandroom area as well that we could meet in if nothing else. I still suggest Bar SK on Smith St in Collingwood.. or maybe that can be an afterparty (or we can try to drag the Ae guys there lol)

drew mcdowall performing time machines as well

Fuck what a lush night
by Berlin Atonal... what? Wrong continent lol

“curated by the German capital’s venerable advanced music festival”

tbqh it wasn’t exactly advanced the last time. Most of it was extremely meh. Sure, there were some highlights but they were very safe choices like, who doesn’t like Emptyset. Now they seem to want to turn it into some kind of global brand or whatever, it is a bit lol really. *sperg backflip*

Seriously tho Sine I think there are a bunch of us going who would be keen to catch up . I'm staying in the CBD and going to get a bite to eat there and either hang in there and have a few drinks or go to the pub 100m away or just to the venue itself for a few drinks before hand 👍 All good
