Soup is a 5 hour eclectic mixture of genres and rhythms presented to you by an equally eclectic mixture of oddballs and outcasts. The Backpocket Slammers amalgamate sounds from the length of the eastern seaboard; brought to you by the hive-mind of 14ct Aux, Jet Zip Wah, and Cash-Neenan. Accompanied by the agile fingers of interstate special guests Midroll and Andy Brown (CBR). For our debut outing as BPS, we’ve decided to take you behind the curtain and straight into the kitchen with sizzling disco, bubbling acid, crackling jazz, and tangy italo, all basting together in a broth of savoury tek-haus. There will be no specified set times and for good reason; this five hour, five man back-to-back will be a maelstrom not so easily defined. Be prepared for all senses to be serenaded – the roaring hearth and mulled wine won’t be the only things bringing the heat. For those purists amongst us loyal to the acoustic vape fret not; the smoker’s balcony will be well within earshot of our raucous redlining. This is a rendition of Soup you won’t easily forget.
We would like to Acknowledge the Wunrundjeri People as a whole for the land we gather on, in particular their elders both past and present.
