Eprom at the Byron Brewery

Eprom Night

Byron Brewery | Thursday | 7pm | $10-15

His unique sound varies from toxic hip-hop to searing garage mutations to bizarre concoctions somewhere in between.

Raising Dough with a Mo – Shag Rock, Albion Place, DJ Eddy

Raising Dough with a Mo – Shag Rock, Albion Place, DJ Eddy

Byron Brewery | Saturday | 7pm | Free entry

The Morning of the Mo is a surf contest that celebrates a time when the shorts where tight, mos were thick, and the surfing was smooth. Competitors battle it out under the guise of an alter ego, in one part surf contest, one part dance off. The event is broken into two categories: there’s the surfing contest and then there’s the evening event, which is the dance-off. Winning the surf event is only part of the deal. To be the overall champion you must arrive in character at 7am and hold that character right through by surfing in costume, and then head to the Byron Bay Brewery for the after party and dance-off that evening. The event was created to align with Movember and raise awareness for men’s health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. After the surf contest in Lennox Head, it’s off the Byron Brewery (7pm) for dancing and music with Brisbane’s Shag Rock, New Zealand indie group Albion Place, and of course resident Movember tune selector DJ Eddy getting the party mo-ving. There will also be a karma keg donated by the Byron Bay Brewery, with funds raised going to Movember.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
