The Nest #6
Saturday May 8th, 7.30pm @ Megaphon Studios – Floor 2/ Building 8, 70 Edith St, St Peters
Sceptic & Dseeva
Electric Elements Crew
The Daily Meds vocal trio strike hard with a special blend of tongue-trickery and not-so-savoury sooth sayery. Saucy stories of dance floor disarray and nonsensical party escapades rouse the crowd into a sweaty frenzy. Manic hype is then juxtaposed with fresh social commentary, metaphysical and moral philosophy and talk of global ascendancy. One man on guitar spinning dirty, dirty beats, two smart lads and one bent soulful diva = your recommended Daily dose of Meds!
Str8 Ballaz are the real deal. Three talented young people, straight from the streets of Glebe, pursuing their dream and bringing their music and vibe to you. Str8 Ballaz all come from the inner-city suburb of Glebe known for it’s troubled streets and tough culture. These kids are the real deal, from tough neighbourhoods and with all the hustle and bravado of true inner city street kids. This is a Hip Hop Crew with a future. The thing that sets them apart: raw talent.
