This Friday night the dancefloor deep within the Coogee Bay Hotel will be heaving as The Avalanches take to the stage at Selina’s, the historic live music venue, for a massive two-hour DJ set. The bass will be heavy, the tune selection will be exceptional and the crowd will be cutting shapes all night long. You know you will be too.
The Avalanches have long been working crowds into a dance frenzy at bars, clubs and on the Australian festival circuit—St Jerome’s, Golden Plains, Splendour. With their superb record selection and knowledge of dancefloor edits from soca rhythms to 80s acid house and everything in-between, crowds around the world have been moving and grooving, feeling wild and free on their dancefloors for decades. Don’t think this Friday at Selina’s will be any different.
Brought to us by I OH YOU and Selina’s, which has recently reopened to once again provide a stage for local talent, The Avalanches will be joined by a killer line-up for a six-and-a-half-hour night of dancefloor antics.
First up on the decks and setting the tone early with rare samples and four-to-the-floor beats will be Lex Deluxe who will be followed by none other than founding member of Jagwar Ma, Jono Ma, who has closed out Glastonbury’s Crows Nest stage for the past 5 years. Both know exactly what they’re doing behind the ones and twos.
Then it’s time for Dan Cut Copy to slide over to the mixer for an hour-and-a-half and take the crowd to the next level before The Avalanches drop the needle. And to end the night on a high, FBi Radio’s Adi Toohey will be reading the room and selecting tunes until close. Having opened for the likes of Hunnee and The Black Madonna, you’ll be dancing until the music stops.
Like we said, it’s a killer line-up.
Doors open at 8pm on Friday 28 May, so you better get your tickets now and start stretching because it’s been a minute since you danced this hard.
