Some Cultured Stuff For Youse

June 23, 2010

Yes, the heading is a joke, for any of you questioning my sanity or appropriateness in approaching cultural content.

The weekend ahead holds many a cultural delight for all you artistic types as well as the next installment of the Label Parties in Fortitude Valley.

I Used To Skate Once (art exhibition + music)
THURSDAY 24TH JUNE
THE ZOO

This is the 6th annual “I Used To Skate Once” exhibition organized by The Outpost’s Matt Brady and looks to be an absolute delight. The exhibition involves a collection of visual artists from around the world who bring with them a variety of styles, ideas, practices and intentions for your viewing pleasure. There’s also a host of local and national bands performing on the night.
Some of the visual artists involved include:

Brian Chase (drummer from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) Interview

May 14, 2010


Brian Chase & Seth Misterka Duo
I caught up with Brian Chase, most famously known of course for his work as a drummer in NY based the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, this afternoon for a quick chat about his latest Australian tour. Brian is in Australia at the moment touring with saxophonist Seth Misterka. Misterka holds his own within the Brooklyn underground music scene, contributing to over 100 albums during his career. Together they have created a free improvised jazz duo, generating moving soundscapes and kaleidoscope sounds, and are performing all this month around Australia.

Brian and I chatted about the difference between drumming in a conventional band like the YYYs versus the heavily improvised performances he does with Seth. He also had some really interesting stuff to say about the exciting new music coming out of the Brooklyn underground music scene, as well as about how much he and Seth enjoyed playing at the Melbourne Jazz Festival last week. I certainly learned a lot during this interview and I’m sure you will too.

Listen in to 4zZz on Wednesday morning between 6 and 9am on Grace Nye’s show The Inconvenience Party to listen to the interview. If you want to check out Brian Chase & Seth Misterka Duo, they’re playing at the Tribal Theatre this coming Friday the 21st of May, and I highly recommend that you do!

4ZzZ’S WEEKLY UPDATE VOL.30

November 9, 2009

https://i2.wp.com/www.4zzzfm.org.au/images/uploaded/hot100web.jpg

So we’re getting to the pointy end of 2009 and while the shops begin to play those oh-so-annoying Christmas carols over and over and over again, we at 4ZzZ want to give your ears a break and let you choose the music you want to hear.

We want you to sort through every song you heard played on 4ZzZ in the past year and pick your favourite. Done that? It’s no easy feat! But when you’re happy with your selection, it’s time for you to cast your vote for your favourite song of 2009 in the 4ZzZ Hot 100!

Remember, you must be a subscriber to vote and you can only do it once, so make sure you make your vote count! (more…)

Gig guide!!

September 17, 2009

The only place you need to go to have a good time this weekend is the backyard. For Brisbane Festival, peeps are lending their backyards to performances in the name of creativity and entertainment. Pear and the Awkward Orchestra are on Friday night at Hamilton, Miguel are performing Saturday night at Yeronga and 10divas follow up on Sunday at Brookfield. So if you’re after something a bit different to the usual local fare, tickets are only $11.50, and you never know, the venue could be just around the corner. Check out the program here! (more…)
