Sydney Hi-Fi Bar Now Open!
The Hi-Fi Bar in Melbourne is one of the cities premiere music venues, and has been since 1997, playing host to a wide range of international heavy weight artists, from No Doubt to the Foo Fighters, as well as housing the Melbourne International Comedy Festival . In 2009, Brisbane was given its very own Hi-Fi in the West End, which quickly became one the most popular grounds for live music in the city. And now, on the 28th of February 2012, Sydney gets its taste of action with its very own Hi-Fi bar.
Tonight Sydney’s Hi-Fi will play its very first show with USA’s Cobra Starship, supported by Forever the Sickest Kids, These Kids Wear Crowns and Kill Hannah. This is only the beginning though, with this opening week also seeing the Soundwave Sideshow of Bad Religion, Strung Out and Street Dogs playing on Wednesday. Followed by Thursday’s showing of Mastodon, Gojira and Kvelertak. Friday continues the venues gig streak with the Brian Kweller show, and finally the weekend will see The Manchester Orchestra bring the tour from the back of their highly acclaimed new album, Simple Math, to our shores, supported by Cabins.
It’s a big week for the brand new venue, and a great way to wear the carpet in, so to speak.
Most interestingly though, is that the Sydney Hi-Fi bar will be the only one doing regular All Ages shows, with both Brisbane and Melbourne have a very strict 18+ policy. Tonight’s Cobra Starship show, as well as the Bad Religion and Mastodon headlining gigs are all All Ages, so it will be interesting to see the pulling power the venue has over the city in the future, given the Hi-Fi has already proved successful even without the All Ages events being commonplace.
