Lismores entertainment scene has had its ups and downs. Given that Lismore and its environs are packed wall to wall with artists, especially musicians, you would expect to have a local nightlife studded with creative musical expression. In past times it has sometimes been like that. Then at other times the phrase nightlife in Lismore seems like a humorous paradox on which young electronic Buddhists should meditate.
But recently theres been a growing groundswell of interest in the North Coast electronica scene with several groups organising events in and around ol Lismore town.
Now local event organisers Kristian and Carli are bringing a huge electronica gig called Indooor Sessions to Lismore on Saturday, October 21, where all the different electronic music types will be represented at the trs funky Italo Club in North Lismore.
This huge and historic venue has seen plenty of nightlife over the decades and is the perfect place to showcase the artistry of DJing and the variety and irresistibility of electronic music.
Its a great venue with plenty of space. Upstairs in the auditorium Indoor Sessions will concentrate on psytrance and the more abstract stylings of electronic psychedelic music, while downstairs the blue room will be a bunker for an onslaught of Drum & Bass, Breaks, Minimal Tech/House, Bassy Acid Breaks, Funky Suomi (a style of psy developed in Finland as everyone knows...) and all sorts of experimental music.
Featured performers include Paul Abad, Foote, M-Phonik, Monarchy vs Azura, Steel, Mesq, Srialdabaoth and Kayhat.
So, remember Indoor Sessions at the Italo Club in Barrow Lane, North Lismore, on Saturday, October 21, from 6pm to midnight. Entry is only $10.
Proceeds will go to our very own community radio station 2NCR-FM.
And food will be available from Zen Sushi. Yum.
