Sydney’s Top Indie Scenes

Anyone out there an Indie music fan? Well, Timeout has taken the “time” to explore some of Sydney’s best indie nights and here are there top 5 picks!

  • Mum:

With its variation in local line-ups ranging from electronic, indie, alternative, pop, rock and experimental fare this triple levelled venue has truly made a name for itself as one of the best in Kings Cross.

  • Girls Gone Mild:

Found jamminf away on Thursday’s at GoodGod Front Bar, FBi’s sister duo (Hannah and Eliza Rilley) start there nights on a gold mine of dance floor tracks that vary each week on specialised themes from ” The Warriors” to “Beat Street Bloc Party”. And the best thing about their gig? It’s totally FREE!!

  • Starfuckers:

Raving away from 3am till 6am at Clubb77 the most favoured indie nights at this venue comes in the form of “teen battleground” Starfuckers playing crazy beats courtesy of Mr Disorder, Hookie and Donnie Blood.

  • Hot Damn

Now here’s a location for one messy night as Hot Damn presents to you a mix of indie bands that get the dance floor packing with patrons buying cheap as drinks…a hard find nowadays in Sydney!

  • Slow Blow

Another little indie favourite at GoodGod Small club; this monthly event sees to it that every clubber is walking home with the rising of the sun as Dreamcatcher and Jungle Snake play irresistible beats that keep you wanting more.

Kraftwerk in Rock Hall of Fame!

 

If you consider Daft Punk to be the father of the American EDM boom, then it’s time to vote for Grandpa. German electronic music visionaries Kraftwerk have been nominated for entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the first electronic act to be up for such honors.

In addition to recording ten groundbreaking studio albums, Kraftwerk quite literally helped invent many of the innovations that the music we love takes for granted today. From the vocoder to the drum pad and beyond, Kraftwerk were analog pioneers that were light years ahead of their 1970s contemporaries. Cited as influences by multiple generations and genres of artists, ranging from the French robots to Depeche Mode, Björk, and every single techno DJ, with unimpeachable longevity (they played Ultra Music Festival and swiftly sold out eight nights at New York’s Museum of Modern Art earlier this year), it is no exaggeration to say electronic music would not be the same without them.

You can (and should) vote to support Kraftwerk’s nomination for entry here.
