Flume, Lorde, Yolanda Be Cool Gather To Keep Sydney Open

18 high profile Sydney based artists (and a Kiwi) have combined to send a message to the New South Wales government to Keep Sydney Open.

New South Wales’ dictator Premier Mike Baird is responsible for shutting Sydney’s inner live music venue down, coincidentally in the same area his old mate James Packer has a casino that is immune from the rules.

Venues closing as a result of Baird’s decision include Hugos, Piano Room and Soho in Kings Cross to Phoenix, 34B, Q Bar, Spectrum and Flinders in Darlinghurst to The Lansdowne, Club 77 and Goodgod Small Club in the CBD. The venues are being run out of business with insane lock-out laws that take Sydney back to the 1950s.

Flume, Flight Facilities, RUFUS, Anna Lunoe, Alison Wonderland, Peking Duk, Art vs Science, The Presets, Nina Las Vegas, Jagwar Ma, The Preatures, Yolanda Be Cool, Hayden James, Bag Raiders, You Am I, Sneaky Soundsytem and Lorde (who played her very first showcase at Goodgod are showing their support for the Keep Sydney Open campaign.

Each troubled venue had plaques installed on Friday night (September 23) but the artists who first got their break at the facilities.

Keep Sydney Open will hold a rally in Sydney on Sunday October 9.
