You've heard his tastes smeared all over bFM's Thursday 1-4 show, everything from Crass and The Clash to blissed out dub and reggae tunes, blended in with a healthy bottle of soul and hip-hop, all augmented by his trademark giggle and excellent human nature. Looking forward to this debut!
7pm - late / Free entry
Wednesday 29th February ~ DJ Elijah Won
Guess what! As the Holy Bible predicted, Elijah has returned to live amongst us. As a killer DJ. Thank the Lord he's chosen us to be his followers. No, don't worry, it's not all old parchments of rules and speeches he'll be reciting, in fact he's gathered together quite a record collection! With a taste-palette ranging from Metallica to "that rap crap", via Jesus and Mary Chain and Kyuss... it's gonna be alright!
7pm - late / Free entry
Thursday 1st March ~ Darryn Harkness (Live improv)
Last time Darryn took over the Dawn like this, he rattled chains against old artillery shells, yelled at taxidermy penguins, shook mystic crystals whilst staring into the eyes of every person in the bar, and looped-n-dubbed a tirade about spilled oil whilst screaming and laughing hysterically. So, naturally, we've invited him back. Don't miss him (on at half nine) with guest DJs the exotical Duke Wellington and the ever predictable Mr Crawley.
8pm - close / Free entry
Friday 2nd March ~ Luckless (live)
A mix of bitter and salty instrument sounds, with honey-laced melodies and loop pedals, is brought to us by the new anti/folk indie/rock duo, Luckless!
Luckless adds loop pedals and atmospherics to an unvarnished vocal sound to create crafted, layered music with an unrefined, naïve edge. References to artists such as PJ Harvey, Iron & Wine and Cat Power abound. Four track tape recorders, old organs and valve amplifiers have created warmth throughout Luckless’s otherwise rough, raw arrangements. Some Luckless songs groove, while others take pause and reflect. Holding it all together is a sense of detachment and isolation...
Find out more this Friday, when Luckless are joined by the delightful DJ Ben Paul and his Jazz Hut, The Soulful Hayden East & our dear wayward scamp The Young Pretender!
8pm - 2am / $5 entry
Saturday 3rd March ~ Exciting Secret Band!
Can't say much about this - but it is exciting. This band is definitely NOT called Badtrousers, though. This mystery band - who have charmed us all throughout the years... - will be joined by the very able DJ Dylan Cherry & friends!
8pm - late / $5 entry
Sunday 4th March ~ The Golden Dawn's Gypsy Fair
This Sunday afternoon, duck into the Golden Dawn's courtyard and discover a bazaar of quality handmade jewellery, vintage clothing, home-crafted crockery, a tarot-card reader*, gypsy juice, live music and more!
The kitchen's open, the wine is flowing, the music is set to enchant, and majik is in the air...
* the line for the tarot card reader / palmist is likely to get pretty long --- get in early to avoid your future remaining a mystery
1pm - late / Free entry
