Swap Meet Party from Outerspace!!

November 18, 2008

One of the downfalls of living at home is that my mother is constantly nagging me to empty the random crap out of my room. And in classic teenage fashion I consistently refuse. So I’ve found the perfect excuse to ensure she doesn’t think I’ve emptied out the black hole due to her influence – this Friday night’s “Outa sight too much fun Swap Meet Party!!!”

Abandon your lawnmowers, dirty laundry and hangovers next Saturday to ease into an irie evening of dub, reggae and dancehall. 4ZZZ’s Dub Day Afternoon provides a refreshing buffet of beats for eclectic tastes. Spend the afternoon chilling with a beer or groove up a storm into the wee hours. 
Regular tickets are only $15 or $12 for 4ZzZ subscribers. If you subscribe at the door you can get in for free! There are also 100 free reggae CDs to giveaway- better than a meat tray.

Visually the site was much grander with an ‘artists’ pirate ship installed in the centre of the space and considerable attention paid to decorating the stages. Only the Tiki bar was missing its painted masks (but there was a lot more space this time). An extra stage was added (Chai tent/ Minjerribah Stage) which showcased local music and performers.
