SATURDAY 11.30pm Rocksteady
Creating some of the most exciting hybrids of music in its wake, the emergence and diversity of Australian hip hop is taking on many forms as it develops.

Seeing the limitless potential of a full live act, Paulie P & Rocksteady made their debut in 2010. The sound of the 7-piece band brought stronger tones of funk and soul, layered with breezy dub rhythms and a slick jazz undertone, to an already potent hip hop attack.

SUNDAY 6.00pm David Ades - A Glorious Uncertainty CD launch

Ades moved to New York in 1981 at the age of 19. Precocious and eager for visceral experience, he spent nearly every night for the next three years sitting in at The Blue Book on 145th St witnessing greats such as Jack McDuff, Sonny Stitt, Roy Haynes, Stanley Turrentine and Freddie Hubbard. Alternatively inspired and humbled by what he heard, it was Harlem that essentially taught Ades to play. Alternatively ferocious and tender, Ades approaches his instrument with a fervour and abandon as beautiful as it is shocking. Still willingly teetering on the edge of the musical abyss, he shows no signs of slowing down. Click here for tickets
