True Radical Miracle at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival

As part of this year's Melbourne International Jazz Festival, the creative minds behind the Make It Up Club and Stutter have curated a festival within a festival. Overground is a one day event held in the many nooks and crannies of the Melbourne Town Hall.

"Overground celebrates the rich diversity of the underground music culture in Melbourne in a day long event set in the many lost spaces of Melbourne Town Hall. It will be an event where new sounds can be made and heard as the outer limits of jazz and improvisation are explored, incorporating avante garde, grindcore, big band, expanded cinema, contemporary classical and performance art installation."

In what is possibly the largest stage the group will ever play, True Radical Miracle will perform a special one-off collaboration with contemporary classical/noise trio, Golden Fur. It's happening on the big stage in the main room - you know, the one where they do the Comedy Festival Gala thing.

It's happening this Sunday. Tickets are $30. Kick off is 2pm sharp. The full, ridiculous line-up is available here. It is advisable not to miss this event, it's unlikely they'll let anything like this happen again.

Sabbatical 2010

Distant Horizon / Formative Stages:

Matthew Brown 2xCS
Cured Pink CS
Dead Boomers CS
Knife Culture: Buried Melbourne 2010 2xCD

We have been taking a break from organising live actions since the end of our tenure at The Old Bar, but there should be some more shows within the next couple of months. These include a second attempt at launching the Dead Boomers label release (venue suggestions are more than welcome at this point), and a number of shows surrounding our Cured Pink cassette release.

That said, artists and projects with past Sabbatical label releases continue to perform live in a range of contexts: Absoluten Calfeutrail is kicking around as a two piece for the moment, Pikelet is launching a new album on Chapter/Love & Mercy across Australia, James Rushford and Joe Talia are off to Europe shortly, and True Radical Miracle is again lurching into life.
