Picnic partying through winter with Canyons, HMC & Brawther
Fri 13th Jul, 2012 Newsin
2012 has been a good year so far for Sydney party agents Picnic. Starting with year in style with Andrew Weatherall and Neville Watson at Sydney Festival, Picnic has celebrated its fourth birthday with Horse Meat Disco, thrown an official Future Music Festival after-party headlined by Friendly Fires in DJ mode and hosted top-drawer acts like The Glimmers, Kink and Space Dimension Controller in intimate club surrounds.
In between all those nights have been the One Night Stand parties led by distinguished locals like Simon Caldwell, Ken Cloud and Tamas Jones. As winter sets in, the good times keep rolling. This weekend on Saturday 14 July, Picnic welcomes back previous One Night Stand stars Canyons who “utterly blew our minds at the warehouse last year”. Check out the What’s On below for details. The guys will be digging deep from the moment the party starts till the very end.
The next One Night Stand happens on Saturday 25 August at Civic Underground with one of Australia’s true treasures, HMC, aka Late Nite Tuff Guy. The Adelaide icon rarely makes it to Sydney, so this one will be very special. Before that, though, Picnic is checking into One22 on 4 August with prodigious Frenchman Brawther, whose first set of 12-inches were picked up by Chez Damier’s Balance imprint. He’s supported on the night by Simon Caldwell, Kali, Dean Dixon and Magda B. Plenty of Picnic-ing to be done.
