WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE FESTIVAL
APPARENTLY WE ALL DO IT
BECAUSE OF HER…
The Loveys – four women telling it like it is – are heroic, humorous and hip! Stylish, yet down to earth, opinionated yet full of love, playing original songs, with big, beautiful vocal harmonies, accompanied by keyboard, ukuleles, bass guitar, drums and featuring the bassoon. The audience is right at home with the cabaret-style humour of The Loveys. Original songs slip past their too-red lips and overstated eyewear, their gentrified hats, and put greatgrandma’s Royal Doulton to a new, unintended use as the china tinkers out a syncopated funk. Brunswick Picture House | Thursday 5 July | 7pm | $15-20
We’re All going To Die is coming to Byron Bay this week after selling out across Sydney and New Zealand. Byron local Stefan Hunt has decided it’s the Shire’s turn to soak up the incredible message – fear less, live more, because we’re all going to die anyway right?
The Arakwal Corporation, Flickerfest & iQ Inc are thrilled to present an inspiring evening of Aboriginal storytelling celebrating NAIDOC Week 2018 and this year’s theme Because of Her, We Can showcasing the lives and impact of Aboriginal women.
The three-day mini-festival deals with themes around fear through the lens of our inevitable death. This multimedia festival of art, film, photography and immersive experiences, created by local and international artists, will spring up all over Byron across Studio Tropico, Pighouse Flicks, the Solar Train, Beach Hotel, Service Denim and the Byron Scout Hall. Don’t be fooled by the taboo name though; think of this event as an amusement park for your soul.
This year’s program curated from Flickerfest favourites will take you on a special journey with some incredibly funny, powerful and strong Aboriginal women whose uplifting stories will inspire and delight.
