View Full Version : Need for a Queer friendly Indie/Alternative venue in Sydney
4th September 2008, 02:26 PM
We basically need a Indie/Alternative venue since Blink pretty much leans industrial/metal these days, 77 has gone electro/bad performance art, and Purple Sneakers is just a horrid horrid scene to be scene duck pond courtyard wankfest.
What do you think the likelihood is of getting DCM converted into some awesome Q&A venue, it's the perfect location, right near Spectrum and the Art Factory, but also on oxford st.
What do people think?
Or is there somewhere I don't know about?

Well Snatch & Grab just opened about a month ago...for queer girls mainly, boys welcome providing they can be accounted for...

I stopped in sydney on my way to adelaide ( to change planes i assume ). Sh## I was sick. They also broke my guitar vindictive mf####rs. I used to love sydney but now i hate it.
I read once, that years ago during colonialism, Sydney was the most violent city on earth. Frightening that reading this did not surprise me.

If you want the full scope on how retarded Sydney is at it's basis read Leviathan by Jon Birmingham.
Basically charts the progression of the hell mouth since European settlement.

I too am looking for some suggestions!
I used to frequently go to Blink back in the day when it was near the Coke sign at the Cross. Kinda stopped going when it moved next to Central station... Then I started going to Sneakers all the time but stopped about a year ago when it started getting very posery and douche bags began to fill the place. I still haven't been to 77... for shame lol.
Soo any suggestions??

Hey everyone, I'm the promoter for a new Indie/Alternative club that's started up in the Taxi Club - called, appropriately enough, Q&A.
The club is being held on Level 2 of the Taxi Club on the 4th Saturday of every month. We're a new club and we're onto our 3rd month. So far, so good! We'd love to see plenty more of you down there, rocking out with us. No beats, no anthems, just cool indie, alternative, punk and rock tunes.
Our next club night is Saturday 28th March. It's all fairly relaxed, you can dress how you like and everyone's welcome. COME ON!! :D
18th March 2009, 04:57 PM
I shall be there!
19th March 2009, 04:35 PM
Sweet! Can't go this Saturday, but I'll definitely be there next month. As long as someone reminds me... lol

Noice! I'll keep SameSame updated with dates as each month rolls by, so you'll never forget when it's on. :p

Hi, not really sure what you're after re venues, but there are a few great alternative queer things happening in Sydney Inner West- Red Rattler (warehouse space in Sydenham) holds a range or music/arts queer community events, the Marrickville Bowling Club and other clubs around Inner West are venues for Bad Dog, Club Kooky is on now mostly at Hermann's etc. These are standards now. But maybe you meant more an actual club venue?:)

Nah that's what I meant, but Kooky isn't really what I meant, Rattler sort of is but Rattler is more of an arts community that remembers when there were decent clubs like the ones I am pining for, and I generally do go to them, but more just to see friends and have fun in an interesting space
Will try and check out Bad Dog though, never heard of it before.

Well I'm happy I was at least in the same book if not on the same page! If you like kooky and rattler stuff then definitely check out bad dog. Next one is a sunday day-evening one on the June long weekend - atmosphere is like a laid back party with lots of dress-ups and friendly faces with the music and dancing pumping up as the sun goes down

Yeah it's more the music that has me at a loss, a while back there was a thing going on at flinders with a decent d.j. but since it got canned there hasn't been anything in my comfort zone.
