BLOCKPROJECTS presents DOBLE & STRONG

Posted in Art/ off the wall with tags , , on April 29, 2010 by speakertv

English-born Robert Doble studied at the Chelsea School of Art in London but now resides in Australia. Doble paintings explore symbolism, mythology and folklore along with Politics and religion.
Vietnamese born Simon Strong creates works that explore our perception of what is plausible. His intrigue for dreams and the constructs of the human memory.

Not sure how these two are going to come together, but certainly extremely interested!

Record Store Day – Melbourne Saturday April 17th 2010

Posted in Electric channel, Hip Hop channel, Music, Rock'en channel with tags , , , , on April 16, 2010 by speakertv

Do you remember the time before you pressed play?
Do you remember the time your music came on two sides?
Do you remember the time when bass was warm and fuzzy?
Do you remember the time when music was only 7 or 12” wide?
Do you remember the time of cover art?
Do you remember the time when music was bought from strange men with pony tails and beards?
Do you remember the time when music crackled?
Do you remember the time when music cost money?
Do you remember the time of the cue and stylus?
Do you remember the time bringing your music purchases home meant back ache rather than RSI?

It’s time to Celebrate Record Store Day Again!

RECORD STORE DAY was conceived by Chris Brown, as a celebration of
the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record
stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally. This
is one day that all of the independently owned record stores come
together with artists to celebrate the art of music.

White Rabbit Record Bar will have 20% off records, DJs playing “all day and all of the night” from 11am – 11pm and best of all beer, wine and cocktails.

RECORD PARADISE will be open from 11am-6pm and invite their customers to join us in store to celebrate the vital role that
independent record stores play as a point of contact for local
communities of music lovers’. They will have a storewide 10% discount;
live djs, acoustic performances and album signings from local acts,
