Remember that first job you got when you were still a fresh faced young’n? An entry level drone, spending your weekends toiling away at that cafe, grocery store, clothing outlet or whatever, working your holidays away and praying for the arrival of Sunday night. Not did you get paid time-and-a-half (if you were lucky enough to be paid legitimately), it also marked the end of what on Saturday morning seemed like an endless stream of soy lattes, clothing returns and slicing deli goods – naturally a time to party. Except you were only 17 and your fake license had been confiscated last time you tried to go to the pub with your older sibling…
If you’re under 18 and working your butt off this weekend, Happy recommends blowing off some steam this Sunday arvo at The Metro Theatre‘s Christmas party featuring our mates The Cairos alongside Jenny Broke The Window, Go Mason Go, Will & The Indians and The Citizens. Hailing from Brizzy, The Cairos are finishing up a headline national tour off the back of their single Obsession and ahead of their debut LP release due next year. It’s indie music with good loud-soft control, sizzling hi-hats, crunchy guitars and airy vocal harmonies. They aren’t evoking the 80’s, they’re not pretending it’s still the 90’s and they definitely don’t worship the 60’s – The Cairos make simple, fun and wholly modern guitar music for Triple J listeners.
The awesomely named Jenny Broke The Window will also be throwing their psychotic indie jams into the mix. Take a listen to Ravel below and we challenge you not to bop your head and tap your toes with a perplexed, encapsulated look on your face. Go Mason Go, a funk rock five piece from the south west of Sydney are also worth your while catching just for their sheer energy and funky hawaiian shirts.
Call in now and see if you can get off work early this Sunday (22nd Dec 2013) – the event starts at 4pm and headliners The Cairos will be kicking off their set at the very reasonable time of 6:45. Tickets are $17 and the show is obviously all ages.
