“Seeing a loud sweaty band in a small venue is easily my favourite musical experience. Everyone crammed in tightly, shoulder to shoulder, singing the same lyrics, bobbing their heads, in unison, sharing that common experience, that’s what music is all about.” Nik Kaloper, The Jezabels.
After a huge debut year this year, SLAM DAY is back for 2013! Registrations are now open for 2013.
On Saturday February 23rd, 2013 musicians and music lovers will come together in the largest simultaneous celebration of Live Music and Small Gigs that’s ever been held in Australia, for the second annual SLAM Day.
On February 23rd last year, over 150 gigs were held in small venues across the country from Perth to Port Douglas, Tamworth to Tennant Creek, Katherine to Kensington and with the support of musicians, venues, music fans and the media, the first ever SLAM Day was a massive success.
In 2013 SLAM Day falls on a Saturday – ‘gig day’, and already SLAM have been swamped with registration enquiries. It’s a race between the states to host the largest SLAM day, with WA and NSW ahead of the race, challenging Victoria as Australia’s home of live music.
Support a SLAM Day gig in your town – any style, any genre. Small gigs can happen in your backyard, in a venue, in your community hall, in a cafe, on the street or in the park.
It’s easy to get involved and free to register, just head to http://www.slamrally.org
