Hey people in your late-20s/early-30s, and event to prey on your nostalgia!
Ahh Ug Beats, ahh Lithium, ahh excessive drinking and dancing at Toast, ahh early 20s.
What: Noughties Dance Party with DJ sets from LITHIUM, PANG, REV, UG BEATS + STRANGEWAYS DJS
Where: Zierholz @ UC
When: Saturday 16 November 2013
UC Live! & STRANGEWAYS DJS present… SHAKE IT (like a polaroid picture!) – a celebration of Canberra’s nightlife in the 2000s!
You’re young and you’re in post-millennium Canberra. You turn 18. For a while, going out here means little more than Mooseheads and a few lonely (if talented) buskers.
But then, slowly – through friends, or perhaps an older brother or sister – you discover Canberra’s true night life: a thriving scene of music lovers, DJs and promoters running big nights in small spaces. Together you run the gauntlet of musical trends, breakups, venue closures and hangovers.
Friends: you may have grown a little since then (our beloved hometown is 100 this year, after all), but SATURDAY 16 NOVEMBER is your chance to relive every dancefloor memory with the cream of Canberra’s DJ nights of the noughties!
DJs LITHIUM JAY and LITHIUM MICHAEL, from Canberra’s most legendary alternative night, will return to the decks for the first time since TOAST closed. Think BLUR meets THE PRODIGY… POP WILL EAT ITSELF!
Flying the flag for Canberra’s hardest working dance night, original PANG! resident OFFTAPIA will drop a set of premium 2000S ELECTRO, recalling the glory days of LOT 33.
Where would any beats night in Canberra be without UG BEATS? Simply the best at keepin’ it one hunned, founder ALISTAIR ERSKINE will be cutting ELECTIC HIP HOP TINGS & TEMPOS.
REV may have had the best funeral ever… but founder ALEXISALEX and long time resident RADAR are gonna revive that indie renaissance with back to back, post-Y2K INDIE JAMS!
Ambitious, impulsive and extremely DIY… STRANGEWAYS DJS will roll deep and close out with a set of EXCLUSIVE, NEXT-LEVEL MASHUPS and VIP bassy classics.
This is your hot-blooded youth in one night! Bring your friends: one of these DJs was probably shakin’ it in the background when you met ¯\_(?)_/¯
