Blank GC + Rabbit Radio
Merry Festivus Mini-Festival
Friday 12December saw a private Miami venue ablaze with light and colourful industry characters as Blank GC and Rabbit Radio contributors and friends celebrated a Merry Festivus Mini-Festival in typical creative style.
Writers and presenters lounged in steampunk velour chairs, chatting and sipping local beer and cider while being entertained by a plethora of talented local artists in an all-night showcase.
Emma and Myles kicked off proceedings with their own brand of languid acoustics while Benny D Williams and his bare feet brought the house down with his unique eastern-inspired vocaltronics.
Local playlists put together by the Rabbit Radio team kept the GC vibe flowing throughout. During the live music break, all Blank writers were recognised in touching and typically creative fashion by magazine owners Samantha Morris and Chloe Popa, with especially hand-picked records and individually designed and named Blank Covers.
In an exciting coup, local hip-hop duo and fast rising stars Lane Harry x Ike Campbell kindly agreed to take time out of their busy schedule in the lead up to their support tour with 360 to play a half hour set for the team and debut a few of their brand new tracks off album Renaissance.
Noisy garage band James Bondage & The Safewords then got everyone’s toes tapping with retro stylings and finally, the young and talented Electric Zebra brought their California casual surf sound to the stage.
Local DJ Sixties Sarah took over the dancing responsibilities straight after the live music finished up, with DJ Chris Lamaro – one half of superstar GC electronica duo Klubknight – finishing off the night of music with a hard one hour set.
It was a fitting and rewarding end to a huge year of effort, growth, love, tears and sweat for the Blank GC and Rabbit Radio team. Once we’ve recovered from our hangovers, we’ll be sure to get back into creating even bigger and better things in 2015!
We’d like to wish all of our readers, listeners and supporters a safe, happy but most of all rocking festive season! Get out there and enjoy what the coast has to offer at this fabulous time of year.
