Orion (NSW), Power, Nun, Ausmuteants, Whipper, Terry, Tommy T & The Classical Mishaps will all play sets on the night. As we have come to expect from these two labels, the lineup is packed to the brim with snarls of punk energy, offset by the occasional stroke of pop genius.
Aarght was started by the members of the Ooga Boogas back in 2007, and has since released thirty-two records, supporting local bands at every turn. Cool Death is a younger entity, beginning in 2013, but stands for the same band-powered ideals without taking itself too seriously; its defining slogan is ‘The only rule is COOL’.
The Label of Love series is a celebration of all things independent and local. Beyond the live music it’s about shining a light on the people behind the scenes, those driving these labels. Pop-up merchandise, art exhibitions, food trucks, birthday celebrations are all part of it as well.
Future shows will feature Bedroom Suck, Remote Control, The Farmer and The Owl, UNTZZ, Temporalcast, Spunk Records and deaf Ambitions.
