Record Fundraiser for Babicka @ Boney

One of Melbourne’s favourite sons had some of his favourite (wax) children ripped from his grasp a couple of weeks ago. In true Melbourne fashion, a bunch of red hot, dead set legendary DJs have come together to raise money for him to replace the records he lost. Firing straight back from the kindness of his heart, Babs has elected to donate the money to another cause (TBA). Good feels, good tunes.

RSVP

Cool Room – S02E06: Louis McCoy + HNDSM @ 26 Francis St, Melbourne

As if a single dose of McCoy wasn’t enough, the Cool Room family are this weekend welcoming him for two sets. Expect traditionally off the beaten track selections in his first, before full blown big fish, little fish, cardboard box during round 2. We are also VERY excited to see Brisbane’s Didi on the lineup this Friday. An alumni contributor to this very website, Emma Stevenson has a record collection that would make most others ashamed. Big daddy babs backs up to shut things out. Heat.

Fresh off the back of the Sonic Showdown, Mania returns to standard programming and welcomes local legends of the the cosmos to the Maniadome. (Cry)Baby Bjorn and his big Daddy Babs will be spinning the soundtrack to their family vacay.

Spin Club 18/6 @ Mercat

Norachi live is a joy rarely witnessed, and one well worth catching if you haven’t had the pleasure. He lit up Lounge not so long ago, and in combination with Spin Club residents in tow the Mercat could be a very pleasant Saturday night home.
