Crooked Colours at Sunday Safari at the Beach Hotel on Sunday

Sunday Safari

Beach Hotel  |  Friday 24 and Sunday 26 Jan

Sunday Safari has had its finger on the pulse, and been contributing to Byron Bay’s entertainment needs for over eight years now. In that time, they have brought some seriously huge names to our seaside hamlet. A roll call of past artists sounds more like a Coachella line up than a list of artists who have played in our little town. Who remembers seeing Flume, Rufus Du Sol, Bloc Party, Foals, Hayden James, Flight Facilities, DJ Snake, MK, Tiga, Jack River or Patrick Topping at the Beach Hotel or Buddha Bar?

You can catch the MVMT summer series every Sunday at the Beach Hotel from 7pm. So far this summer MVMT has hosted the likes of Illyus & Barrientos, Mat.Joe, George Smeddles, and Torren Foot. With a plethora of artists to be announced before Easter, MVMT has your weekly dose of house and techno covered.

If you want to catch Northeast Party House, Seaside & Brave Gulf this Friday at the Beach Hotel, then you had better get in fast, as tickets are nearly sold out. Australia Day evening sees Crooked Colours, and Sunday Safari taking control of the Beach Hotel for a summer soirée.

Early bird tickets have sold out. Tickets for both shows are available from sundaysafari.com.au

Jimmy Willing and the Real Gone Hick-Ups at the Billinudgel Hotel on Saturday

Jimmy Willing & The Real Gone Hick Ups

Billinudgel Hotel  |  Saturday 26 January  |  6pm  |  $10 entry

The protagonist heads west in the hope of earning a pair of Gal Leg Spurs.

It was every cowboy’s dream to purchase a pair of Gal Leg Spurs at the end of the drive. In fact, it was his holy grail. But things didn’t always go the way they were planned; things always got in the way – like gambling, whiskey and Miss Kitty’s House of Ill Repute.

Gal Leg Spurs is a song by Jimmy Willing and Davey Bob Ramsey, with Double Bass by Nirvana Glassey, and Drums by Clancy Robinson.

Jimmy Willing & The Real Gone Hick-Ups release their new single with special guests Abbie Cardwell, and Sophiella & The Handsome Husbands, 6pm Saturday 25 Jan at the Billinudgel Hotel. $10 entry.

There’s a parcel of goodness in giving at the Rock n’roll coffee company event

Warm Up, Laneway Party

The Rock and Roll Coffee Company, 55 Burringbar St, Mullumbimby
Saturday 25 January  |  5–11pm  |  Entry by canned food donation

Brothers Kerry and Clifford (of the band, Parcels) bring fearless groovy selections to the speakers at Warm Up, at the Rock & Roll Cafe in Mullumbimby, on Saturday.

Having grown up in Newrybar, in a disused milking shed, the isolation of their blissful youth was marked with a sense of yearning for sonic worlds beyond their idyllic penitentiary.

With starmarked retinas, Kerry’s journey of self-discovery around Germany, Scandinavia and the United States, as part of Parcels, sharpened this yearning into an inherent understanding of technology, performance and groove well-beyond his years. 

Meanwhile Clifford’s journey was one of sea-change, marked by constructing a music studio in the basement of a beach shack in Brunswick Heads. A deepest of calming presences was instilled from a life in-sync with nature’s tidal movements, and when Kerry returned, a fierce collaboration was born.

Entry is by donation of an item of canned food. These will be donated to Mullumbimby & District Neighbourhood Centre Inc. Saturday 25 January, 5–11pm at Rock & Roll Coffee Company in Mullumbimby.

Warm Up laneway party is a great way of helping the local Neighbourhood Centre with a food-drive, while having a great time dancing.
