STUTTER is a weekly night of experimental/unpopular/avant-tard/acoustic/electronica/call-it-what-you-will, music and performance madness. Every Wednesday night at Horse Bazaar from 8:30pm.
On Wednesday, June 9th, you can catch three local purveyors loosely affiliated with minimal techno sounds.
Wet Patch – Sporadic no-input tag-team comprised of Jon Dale and Fjorn Butler. Both are well-seasoned sound manipulators in their own rights, this will be their second outing as a duo
Hrvatska – Born in the spiritual home land of Australian noise, the Croatian Club, Hrvatska is the aural combination of Mitchell Brennan and Lachlan Gale. Drawing influence from Japanese no input mad(wo)men, dub and everything in between, together they present an assault of electrical tom foolery.
Reunion Sacred Ibis – Elaborately named Nintendo DS venture of Cooper Bowman. RSI lands somewhere between stupid techno and stupid noise.

One of the greatest events of the year is coming up! The Winter Tragic Festival will once again take place at Akemi in the beautiful Blue Mountains of New South Wales on Sunday June 21.
Akemi is a small shopfront and house on the edge of a cliff overlooking a great big valley. It is operated as a studio and performance space by various artists, activists, and mega celebrities of the Australian experimental underground.
The Festival runs over about 12 Hours and typically consists of heaps of radical Blue Mountains acts, as well as bands from all over the country. It really is one of the best opportunities of the year for all the weirdos to get together and the label distros are always excellent. We’ll be there trying to flog off the Monstera Deliciosa catalogue, but you can expect to buy or trade lots of other goodies too.
The line up consists of:- Sun Of The Seventh Sister Hochman & Hopkins Nhomea Craft Bandits Audiopollen Collective Adam Simmons The Splinter Orchestra Lungalung QQQQ Venting Gallery Red Pinkos Whores the Spiders Knitted Abyss Crab Smasher Podyolk Katsi Jim Denley Mike Majkowski Butler/Brennan Duo
