Skip the clubs for live electro tunes and contemporary dance at the first Kindred event since 2016
Got plans this Saturday night? Cancel them. Kindred is returning to Melbourne this Saturday April 7 for a big night of live and experimental electro music, contemporary dance and out-of-this-world projection art.
Kindred is the signature event of artist-run record label Spirit Level, created by musician and Triple J presenter Tim Shiel and musician Wally de Backer (aka Gotye). For this installment of Kindred they've lined up a healthy list of local musos and touring artists. Warm up your ears and prepare for the sometimes melancholic but always uber chilled out music of Braille Face; the electro-fairytale musings of Sydney's Anatole; and the smooth yet bouncy pop of Melbourne duo Hemm. They'll also be joined by Ben Abraham, Woodes, Nearly Oratorio, Lucy Roleff and Juice Webster, who'll be playing pared-back sets.
The Saturday night gig is Kindred's first show since 2016 and to really kick off their reboot they're teaming up with Melbourne creatives Playing Field. Alongside the healthy line-up of local acts Playing Field will be bringing the moves – literally – with a team of improvised dancers grooving along to the beats throughout the night. And if that still wasn't enough audio-visual stimulation for you projection artist Carla Zimbler will working her trippy dreamscape magic.
You can catch Kindred at the North Melbourne Meat Market from 5pm this Saturday April 7. Tickets start at $20 plus booking fee.
