There’s nothing wrong with Skinny Jeans. They look good, hell they look great. But in a music industry ruled by fashion, it seems that the tight, chafing, restricted nature of Skinny Jeans has rubbed off onto the Sydney live music scene.
Suddenly, everything looks and feels the same. Enter Thai Fisherman Pants. Set in the cavernous underground bar at the Burdekin Hotel, imagine yourself cutting loose at a house party in 1973, sweating it out at CBGB’s, or watching Jimi cut sick at the House of Blues and this will give you some idea of what the night is all about. With impromptu jams, special guests and feature nights curated by the headline acts, Thai Fisherman Pants aims to bring back some of the magic that’s been lost over the years.
The Headline act at each event will have control over the direction of the night. Bands will be welcome to stick around after their sets and jam together. MC’s will be dropping by to throw some hip hop into that mix. And of course, Muso’s all around Sydney will be welcome to jump up and add their touch of gold to the night.
Skinny Jeans are welcome, but don’t let them hold you back. Thai Fisherman Pants; Loose, Free, Unpredictable… Guys like to think of it as the musical equivalent to free balling.
