What can you expect from our parties?
>On the 14th July, The Chippo Hotel will be hosting a party that sets itself apart from the generic pub/club night out. It’s about the return of the 90s hay day that built its vibe from four simple words; Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect (PLUR). To help describe your evening with us, think: 
BEERS ‘n’ BURGERS – MATES ‘n’ TECHNO – SUNSHINE ‘n’ SMILES.

>Eurodance Delights is a party with dedicated DJs who enjoy crate digging for forgotten white labels that gave foundation to today’s music scene. You can expect to hear a freshness of 90s Piano House and Eurodance that goes well beyond your commercial classics like Dr. Alban, The Real McCoy, DJ Bobo, La Bouche etc. 

>Wearing your hypercolor t-shirt, adidas gazelles, or keppers are not mandatory;) Just be yourself and enjoy the nostalgia:) 

>Come in early for a cruisy lunch with your mates, enjoy some raw piano house and gems from the early 90s rave scene in a funky outdoor courtyard styled with its own Graffiti Hall of Fame. Stay into the evening as we progress into electronic synths with bumbling basslines and euphoric riffs, and close out the night with a serious dose of glorious HI NRG that will transport you back to the days of Blackmarket, Equinox/Pump @ The Apia Club, Kinselas, DCMs, 2SER, 99.3FM, and 2RDJ FM📻 etc. This party builds its vibe from anyone wanting to feel nostalgic, or wanting to discover what was so great about the 90s. Meet friendly new people with a passion for good music.

2pm - midnight.

Joan Banoit 'Bet Me' Single Launch

Joan Banoit's debut single 'Bet Me' is the much anticipated first release from Lazy Thinking, the Sydney based label created by FBi Radio co-founder Cass Wilkinson and composer/producer Jim Flanagan.

After spending the last few years building a cult underground following, Joan Banoit will be launching their first single and video ahead of debut album 'Clerical' out later this year. The new material will showcase the output of a 12 month development period in the studio with Sydney producer Artefact, along with composer/mixer/engineer Stu Hunter and a host of cutting edge Sydney musicians playing everything from drums to flugelhorn, trumpet and trombone.

Informed as much by the innovative electronica of Jlin, Arca, Burial and Autechre as they are classic synth pop, art rock and contemporary composition, swing by the Chippo on Friday the 13th for an appropriately spine tingling, utterly unique and thrilling take on contemporary music.

Joining Joan Banoit will be an extremely special instrumental set by Marcus Whale performing as 'Marcus Not Singing' and exciting new vocal innovator Ces Hotbake.

Drown This City w Arteries, Dreamers Crime and The Maybe List

Newton's Third Law states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction! Drown This City's new single 'Third Law' drops Friday April 20. 'Third Law' is a force of nature - more aggressive and complex in composition than previously seen before from DTC. 

See Drown This City play Arteries, Dreamers Crime and The Maybe List, Saturday 2nd June at The Chippo Hotel, Chippendale NSW 

The reaction to this show is destined to be equal to the devastatingly huge sound on the massive track!

Hard-Ons at the Chippo Hotel, NSW
Jun

to Jun 2

Hard-Ons at the Chippo Hotel, NSW

Still absolutely buoyant from their 30th anniversary tour AND the world-wide release of their best album-to-date “Peel Me Like A Egg”, Sydney’s colourful rocking identities THE HARD-ONS come bearing good news for music lovers and sports fans alike.

May 2016 will see the Hard-ons shrug off their recent misfortune, whereby their January tour of Japan was sadly aborted for health reasons, and hit the stage again. This time, the Hard-ons will be a FOUR-PIECE again, with original vocalist/drummer Keish “Velvet Fog” de Silva permanently returning to the fold as frontman!

This explosive yet deeply melodic line-up of one of Australia’s most unique and action-packed rock and roll bands will perform a set bristling with both beauty and brutality, as they explore their vast back catalogue, and more importantly, introduce new material that has only just been hammered brilliantly into shape by this incarnation!

Every show promises to be a special affair, as the expanded, new, and revitalised Hard-ons flex their considerable and charismatic musical muscle: to sum up, nothing and everything has changed. Hard-ons: Very exciting as ever, but a little bit better.

These shows are not to be missed!

South African born, Australian raised rapper KG is making no apologies with his politically charged and thought provoking music. The social justice advocate has been blazing a trail with his no holds barred approach to tackling the taboo topics of society today.

With scores of live shows including support for the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Bone Thugs n Harmony, Black Milk and Ice Cube behind him, KG has carved out a name for himself as a storyteller and potent lyricist. Now back with a renewed sense of himself, his music & his roots, it's no wonder he has begun to cement himself as one of his generations most respected and vocal commentators.
