|The Valley Studios will be transformed into a kaleidoscopic extravaganza of music and interactive art Connect 4: PLAY. 4C Arts Collective has joined forces with a collection of Brisbane’s best emerging musicians, visual and performance artists to bring fun and mayhem.
Aural delights will be provided by some great emerging bands. Dot.ay’s highly experimental and creatively satisfying tunes will keep the dance floor buzzing, followed by Hunz, who combines visual art and music together in his unique live shows; Music will be seen; Art will be heard. Combine this with the raw rocking talent, high energy and tremendous tunes of Little Vegas and the Fuzz Parade and 4C has an undeniably stellar line-up.
All proceeds from Connect 4: PLAY will be donated to Backbone Youth Arts, one of Queensland’s leading Youth Theatre companies. Backbone Youth Arts supports, encourages and grows youth arts in Brisbane and is well known for its annual 2high Festival which provides unique and invaluable experience for festival and event management for young people with a passion for theatre, music and visual arts.
4C Arts Collective is proud to use art to give back to the community that has supported local artists. Like Backbone Youth Arts, 4C Arts Collective is committed to utilizing and promoting emerging artists in Brisbane.
Triple J featured grunge/rock/soul darlings and winners of the Valley fiesta emerging artist award return to tear the place apart with a blistering storm of electric, psychedelic rock. This is without a doubt one of the bands to watch in 2009.
Australian Hunz‘s project has been a long time in the making. When Victims Fight is a manifest of his outstanding talent; the crisp, poignant beatwork and evocative synth pops and glitches are reinvented when layered between Hunz‘ emotive voice. Somewhere between Radiohead, Telefon tel aviv and Kate Bush, his music is a testament to pop music and originality. A visionary, he created every facet of this album to be regarded as a whole, from his soulful music, to his award-winning video production to his surrealist art. Hunz fills a crevasse in modern pop music with his honesty, fragility and innovation.
A one man indie techno wonder, DoT.AY creates a sonic soundscape of bleeps and beats from a variety of lofi and 8bit gaming machines and delivers a show that has to be seen to be believed. DoT.AY has performed with bands such as Girl Talk and Crystal Castles and we are thrilled to include him in our line up.
Host of Brisbane’s best new Indie dance party PISTOL WHIPPED comes genius DJ and all around stellar human being DJ JANE DOE. Imagine putting Santogold, Bloc Party, Klaxons and MIA in a blender and remixing it with a lil sumthin’ sumthin’ and you’ll be on the right track.
badge making, on demand artists to create in front of your wide and sparkling eyes, a stellar array of visual art, roving theatre and performers, games, surprises AND it’s a mere $15 BYO, and no that doesn’t stand for ‘Bad Yak Odour.’
