Sydney's Top FIve Free Events: June 1-3
It’s finally happened, someone’s gone and kick-started the Zombie Apocolypse we all knew was coming. They can blame bath salts all they want but you just wait and see, in six weeks time Bondi Beach will be a scene out of Dawn Of The Dead as zombie koalas attack from Taronga Zoo. With the end of the world approaching it’s time to brush up on your zombie slaying skills and start your cardio training in the hope the walking dead are just that – walking. Or you can throw caution to the winds and go out in style at one of these free gigs.
This weekend at The Rocks places + spaces present an eclectic mix of music and sounds to inspire and engage. Eastside Radio Hosts Music
is the latest pop-up project to hit the rocks; consider it the Bald Archies of the music world. Running Thursday through Sunday you can catch some sweet, free tunes from The Vinyl Frontier, Unknown Pleasures and The Neonhearts DJs to name but a few.
Friday night it’s time to Jam Rock as The Town Hall Hotel plays host to a night heavy with Reggae, Ska and Dub. Alotta Presha, Frieda’s Boss and Jesse Morris & The 3 Beans
will be setting the tone, BYO rasta beanie and tie-dye. Please do.
Imagine if heaven had a flea market. Now stop imagining people, the Finders Keepers Markets
are back this Saturday at Sydney’s Carriage Works. Showcasing the work of over 65 emerging designers and artists the markets will also feature free live music Jack Shit, Mountains, DJ Dylabolical and more. We’ve never been happier to spend a hard earned dime.
In what could be the greatest sport invented since Lingerie Football, this Sunday you can join in on a game of Unicycle Hockey
at Sydney’s Camperdown Oval. Is it just us or are you picturing Cirque Du Soleil on wheels crossed with the craziest ice hockey brawl you’ve ever seen? Maybe it’s just wishful thinking. Kickoff is at 9.30am and gloves are strongly recommended if you’re looking to participate.
If you manage to make it to Sunday with more then half your brain cells intact then slip down to Bungalow 8 and take a load off as emerging singer/songwriter Erin Marshall
serenades the afternoon crowd. Having toured with Angus & Julia Stone and opened shows for Richard Clapton and Josh Pyke, Erin Marshall’s sweet blend of Indie-Pop will wash away whatever sins you committed the night before.
So there you have it Sydney, quite possibly your last chance at zombie free fun. Be safe, and don’t forget to double tap.
