Venues Of Note


Metro Theatre

Definitely the place to play for most aspiring young acts in Sydney. A lot of touring internationals manage to fill the 1,200 capacity room that boasts a more than ample sound system and a spacious stage. The venue also has a generous dance floor and a raised amphitheater for punters to chose from. MF Doom killed it here earlier in the year to a sold out crowd—four encores.

We’ve played a number of shows here over the past two years, and though it can be a little hit and miss, we always get a good sound and a good turn out. It’s a new venue in the context of Sydney’s live scene, but it didn’t take long for it to rise to being one of the most sought after live spots for touring and local acts. Mount Kimbie managed to fill this place with an unprecedented amount of smoke and women.

Sydney University’s drinking spot turns into a live venue at night. Not something that sounds totally appealing, but the system is powerful and the stage is large. When Manning Bar fills up, it carries a strong vibe that is hard to let down. Always a pleasure to play.
