Our House launches at Old Parliament House

johnboy 30 September 2008 7

Lexington Music (the producers of Foreshore) are this weekend launching their Our House dance parties at Old Parliament House this Sunday.

It’s a big lineup with:
— The Potbelleez (Live)
— Sharam Jey (Germany)
— Dexter (Ex-Avalanches)
— Jeff Drake
— RyFy
— DJ J
— Sean Kelly
— Ashley Feraude

I love their idea of a dress code:

    As this event is being held at one of the hottest venues around we expect you will be looking your best!! There will be a dress code on the door, put simply things that are so 3 years ago we will say no to: guys in singlets, raver gear, glowsticks, camouflage, work gear, sporting jerseys. Thongs that are worn well are cool!!

Interesting venue and we’ll be fascinated to hear how it goes.

(Oh, and it sounds like you need to book in advance)

I went to this event. Wish I didn’t. Despite apparently being sold out it seemed half empty and devoid of any decent atmosphere (as well as decent looking sheilas). Apart from the main stage there was very little going on. Redbull wannabees “Buzz Monkey” were flogging their atrocious-tasting product.

Interestingly it was a “camera-free event”. Can anyone suggest why?

Perhaps it’s an effort to filter out the marauding packs of shirtless roid-rager stupid-sunnies morons doing the “arrgh arrgh stomp stomp stomp oiwotyoulookinatCMONFIGHTME” dance.

I hate those guys.

“Thongs that are worn well are cool!!”

Nope, thongs just can’t be worn well. Ever! If you want to look ‘cool’ then y’all best be covering yer toes.

You can’t dance in thongs. If you chuck them off and go bare foot then you’re a hippy and should be dancing in the forest, not at OPH. And that is soooo 2004.

yes but not as pre-requiste to entry, those examples are more an effort to increase inclusion. This falls into the category of social judgment and thus exclusion.

The presumption that some fans aren’t cool enough seems ungrateful, mildly offensive and perhaps remedied through closer self-inspection.

To be fair to them I know plenty of local bands who will, depending on the venue and the event, ask their fans to dress up.

Great choice of venue – although after last year at foreshore its a wonder how they managed to convince OPH they would get it back to them in one piece.

The dress code states that unfashionable losers (my words for ‘so 3 years ago’) will not be let in.

Is not your music a direct reflection of the demographic you appeal to?

If so many of losers cometo your event, then logic dictates that maybe the event is not as ‘cool and today’ as promoters amy percieve it to be.

Mildly ironic, hypocritical and slightly reminiscent of a high school mentality – all at the same time…

just an observation.

lexington is building a good rep. i reckon OPH would be v cool, and we are going to foreshore again this year because last year was great despite the bucketing rain, but my partner refuses to attend the event this sunday. boo 🙁
