The DIY music institution takes over the Opera House forecourt
In 1978, Thin Lizzy played to a crowd of over 100,000 in the Sydney Opera House forecourt and tonight the same(ish) stage will be historically thrashed by local equivalents. Newtown purveyors of passionately collated music and merch Repressed Records are celebrating their 15th anniversary with a line-up of local and interstate bands. See Melbourne's Total Control, Miss Destiny and Francis Plagne, Kitchen's Floor from Brisbane, local electronic pioneers Severed Heads and fellow Sydneysiders Angie, Fake and Skyline. Brave the winds and support a music store and scene that means a lot to a lot of people. If anything, it will be unlike any other Vivid music events you're likely to attend. Who knows, maybe one day you will look back on the outdoor concert with the same nostalgic pang as those who were there for that 70s Thin Lizzy gig.
