FBi Social To Close After One Final Blowout
Many nights at FBi Social have been made into cherished memories. Since its first show 3 1/2 years ago, the venue has seen more than 1000 local artists and bands take the stage while more than 40, 000 fans have walked through those doors.
FBi Radio have announced that they will be closing FBi Social with a stronger focus on the station’s other projects and avenues like FBi Click and Northern Lights, with the previous space on the second floor of Kings Cross Hotel to be reopened as the band-room. But to ensure that all good things will go out with a bang, FBi Social will have her last show at the famed venue.
In celebration, Melbourne dance-pop quartet World’s End Press, Sydney three-piece Mansionair, Dave Rennick of Dappled Cities and FBi DJs have been roped in to provide a proper closing of curtains in this bitter-sweet farewell.
World’s End Press will bring their pulsating electronic presence to the stage, with their music suffering repercussions from the 80’s, watch our for their crooning vocals, choral hooks, disco-influenced samples and intricate yet playful synth parts mashed into melancholic vibes that come only in hefty waves of emotions.
Having been recently announced on the St Jerome’s Laneway and Beyond the Valley Festival, Mansionair have been enjoying a long streak of success since their release of ‘Hold Me Down’, a gratifying electronic beat that shoulders both catchy and grieved lyrics in a six minute long track that sparks a jolt with each listen.
Head down to FBi Social for one last party as we bid them a final farewell this November.
