Spring is Sprung: Garden Music and Frolicking

I'm planning to be at this with a big picnic spread and a bottle or two of something sparkling. Sunday October 8th, 12:30-6pm:

Urban Fusion at Government House

Celebrate the arrival of spring in the ultimate garden party setting. Jaslyn Hall, former ABC Radio presenter, hosts an impressive line up of contemporary music:

CODA – renowned for their imaginative theatrical performance and a music that has no boundaries, blend the beauty of strings with the warmth of electronica, simply extraordinary.

LABJACD – a nine-piece band from Melbourne that play an exhilarating mix of hip hop, Cuban salsa, jazz and even Andean folk music. Combining this with their pulsing rhythm and horn sections, guitars, double bass and decks LABJACD are guaranteed to bring the crowd to their feet for a feast of dancing.

Tango Saloon – will delight with their unique style. Think Astor Piazzolla meets Ennio Morricone, this tango-flavoured music has a twist of spaghetti western peppered with humour plus hints of jazz, electronics, Cuban and chamber classical.

Astronomy Class – the soaring new trio made up of Ozi Batla (The Herd), Sir Robbo (Frigid, Tooth) and Chasm. Their debut album, Exit Strategy, is a hook-laden hip hop record anchored in resinous dub and reggae. Combined with resonant and searching lyrics, it is set to be one of the albums of summer. These three prolific musicians have looked to the stars for inspiration, aiming to bring a little outer-worldliness back to hip hop.

So come and relax on the lush lawns, bring along a picnic or just a rug and enjoy the fine foods and wine on sale.

I saw this in the booklet I grabbed at the 50s Fair and was definitely, totally interested- the only problem is, where is the date? I think I eventually found it in the small print of the booklet. I shall look again.
