What can we say. It was one of the best things we have seen in a long time.

If you ache for those early days of surf, before all the big brands and overcooked spots, then this event was for you. Film Director and Photographer, James Kates, is known around the Illawarra for his unique gallery events and images, so when we found out he had made a movie then we just had to turn up. It was a no-brainer. 

Joined by cult local band, the M1  , who improvised a 60 minute set soundscape as they watched the film Aural Canyons unfold, was a spine-tingler. Just ask anyone who was there. And just like the Sex Pistols first gig at London's 100 Club, in years to come EVERYONE will say they were there!

Port Kembla's SERVO was the perfect setting for this lo-fi cultural moment. Anne and her crew really like to shake it up with electronica, jazz, rock, indie and punk events and this just crowns their recent line-ups with a pretty spectacular one-off.


All we can say is that we need to see more of these things so hit us up because we cannot get enough of these cool happenings on the world's edge.
