SET 1: Laurence Pike
Laurence Pike - Solo drums & sampler
Laurence Pike is probably best known for his groups PVT and Triosk, and work with Szun Waves, Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders, Sarah Blasko, D.D Dumbo and his collaborations with the legendary pianist Mike Nock.
Alone at the instrument Pike has developed a singular language, using the sampler to expand the physical and sonic potential of the drum kit in addition to his already virtuosic ability.
Drawing from his diverse output, this is music aiming to explore an ecstatic musical space, where conventional notions of time and the role of the drummer are placed in the bin.
"A percussive force of epic proportions" The Brag, Sydney

SET 2: HEKKA
JACQUES - BASS
NOVAK - KEYBOARDS
TULLY - DRUMS
HEKKA seeks to fall in the cracks. HEKKA writes folk songs without lyrics. HEKKA plays music like a jazz trio with restless rock sensibilities. HEKKA left words out long ago you’ll just have to come and see. HEKKA is three friends doing what they need to. HEKKA is spirited, destitute and hungry. HEKKA will not go away. HEKKA leaves the light on and the door unlocked...
Come down and check it out!
