Spring Break Festival!! Croatian Club Fundraiser

There’s a massive all day music festival coming up at Newcastle’s most accomodating and friendly venue, the Croatian Wickham Sports Club. The club has long been the unofficial home of new weird Newcastle sounds, and has sometimes struggled to make ends meet. In order to make a bit of money back and say thanks to Pavo, 20 of Newcastle’s raddest groups are getting together for the first ever Spring Break!! Festival.

The lineup includes  Bare Grillz, In The Dollhouse, Crab Smasher, Alps, Hopes, CasioGloria, Teen Ax, A Dire Dawn, Stitched Vision, Polyfox And The Union Of The Most Ghosts, Cock Safari, Fk Sampler, Spew Ya Guts Up, Holographic Cocoon, Phobiac, Troopin’ Kerry Alpacas, Cistern Corrupt, Honest Thieves, Wirehead, Mushroom Family, and special guest DJ MTTNS.

Plus market stalls, games of bowls, bocci and giant chess, raffle to win hundreds of dollars worth of CDs, records and tapes, cheapest drinks around, and all day pizza oven firing up slices for $2 and whole pizzas for $5!

Tickets are $10 at the door or $20 for families.
All proceeds to the Croatian Club.

From 2pm Sept 11

Kevin Blechdom in Newcastle

Kevin Blechdom is touring Australia again, this time with special guest Barnwave. We caught her twice on her 2006 tour and she is simply unmissable! Thankfully she’s stopping by Newcastle again, this time taking in the Croatian Club with special guests Rice Corpse, Alps Of New South Whales, Casiogloria, None Music, and Liz Hurley. It’s going to be a really great show, don’t be stupid and miss out! For other dates in your town, visit Dual Plover.

Here’s a few choice words from the local promoters.

THIS SHOW IS $10 AT THE DOOR BECAUSE THERE IS AN INTERNATIONAL ACT HEADLINING AND MULTIPLE OUT OF TOWN ACTS. IF YOU ARE A PISS-WEAK POOR-ARSED FUCKWIT WHO WANTS TO COME TO THE SHOW BUT IS GOING TO TURN UP AT THE DOOR AND HASSLE US TO LET YOU IN FOR FREE, FUCK OFF. EVEN THOUGH YOU SAY YOU DON’T HAVE THE $10 WE KNOW YOU’RE ABOUT TO SPEND $50 ON THE BAR SO FUCK YOU. THE MORE YOU PISS OFF THE PEOPLE WHO GIVE THEIR TIME, MONEY AND ENERGY TO ORGANISE THINGS FOR YOU TO DO, THE MORE JADED THOSE PEOPLE GET AND THE LESS LIKELY IT IS YOU’LL HAVE SHIT TO DO NEXT WEEK.

8PM December 11
