Introducing: Alice Underground Party
With events and venues closing down left, right and centre here in Sydney and the world at large basically turning to shit, a group of socially conscious and madly creative beings are stepping up to give Sydney a wildly eccentric night out with a global purpose.
Cue Alice Underground. A one night only affair showcasing some seriously scrumptious music, arts and culture with all proceeds going to the amazing work that Oxfam Australia do all over the world.
Leading the evenings proceedings will be Tasmanian duo Fin Rees and Allan McConnell and their dancing love child Close Counters. The synth-gasm worthy harmonies created by this pair are deeply infectious and are near impossible to sit still to. Their youthful blend of hip hop and dance beats screams influence from Disclosure and Flying Lotus, but yet they somehow remain their own.
With a bunch of big shows all over Australia under their belts including Falls Festival and Dark Mofo, they are definitely one that should not be missed in this intimate and whimsical setting.
Supporting will be a bunch of local legends including Amastro, TSUKI and Alice Underground resident vinyl wizard Patq, who are all pumped to take you down the rabbit hole and all that jazz. Expect something a little different with artists and tricksters also on hand to keeps things a little bit weird at this underground garden tea party. We assume someone will be on hand to spike the tea…
All this of course is to help raise money for Oxfam Australia, with all funds raised going directly towards Oxfam‘s life changing work around the world. Oxfam is a world-wide development organisation that utilises the power of people to fight against poverty and wealth injustices through out the world.
Alice Underground will be taking place at Knox Street Bar in Chippendale, Saturday 5th December from 7pm. Tickets are available now for $10 or $15 on the door.
