Performances on the night by:
LAUREN AND THE GOODFIGHTS:
All trans local punk larrikins; Lauren and the Goodfights, turn every gig into a half stand up comedy sh*t-talk, half blistering punk/hardcore set. Ferocious music combined with a relatable queer message, they pride themselves on putting the queers to the front, calling out bullsh*t and having a bloody good time.
SOUNDS LIKE: a recording of paint being scraped off a wall by basil zempalis’s teeth sped up 100 times and then thrown into a garbage disposal (see: 'hardcore punk band').
The Shakeys were named in tribute to the unconventional life of a Perth roadie who had a passion for punk and rock'n'roll bands. Their influences include more obscure punk bands from around the world and Aussie classics such as Radio Birdman and The Saints. Their current self-titled EP features six songs penned to cover issues ranging from homelessness to poseur antics at rock shows and being on the run from the Manson gang. The Shakeys – an all girl garage band that packs a punch!
SOUNDS LIKE: The Saints, The Runaways, Turbonegro
Rapper, singer-songwriter and producer Sunny Flowers draws influence from hip-hop, electronic and R&B music and utilises it to create raw and emotional ballads based on often tragic real-life experiences. After releasing her debut EP ‘Palominos’ in 2020, during the early days of the pandemic, she continued headstrong and has since shared the stage with artists such as SUPEREGO, Yomi Ship and Sakidasumi.

DJ BEXX of Project BEXX:
Bright, daring and self-assured, Perth-based electronic producer, DJ and performance artist Project BEXX brings her bad-b*tch energy and attitude. BEXX guarantees a fun, vibrant and immersive live show. Since 2019, she has supported the likes of Shockone, Peking Duk, G Flip, Ruel and also performing live for the FIFA Women’s World Cup! BEXX produces all her own music and is very passionate about women forging a path in the electronic/production industry.
