Come get spooky on Halloween at Bar 303 with a special nightmarish line up of lunatics and horrific displays of art!

Featuring the nasty noises of the legendary glass crunching monster JUSTICE YELDHAM from the hellish scrap heap they call Sydney, the creature baby from the noisy deep UMBILICAL TENTACLE, the prehistoric neanderthunderous abomination OCCULT BLOOD, the dark princess of misery UBOA and the gnarled 2 headed improv beast R/S.

and Unleashing the terrifying, gut churning artworks of KROOKS, VI, OFFMENTALVISUALS, DELIRIOUSINK and SCRAWNART so frightening your eyes will melt.

the Cauldron will be flowing early at the unveiling of horrific visions (art opening at 6 come drink) and will keep overflowing with the wretched brew while the witches dance (to the live music that starts at 8PM) well into the darkness of the night (bars open til 3am).

FANCY DRESS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED!!

JUSTICE YELDHAM
http://dualplover.com/yeldham

What’s described as “a trumpet player trapped in a two dimensional universe” is in fact the unique work of Lucas Abela (also know as Justice Yeldham), a maverick musician with an unhealthy obsession with sheets of broken glass. In his now infamous show which has astonished and bemused countless people in over 45 countries, Abela ecstatically purses his lips against panes of amplified glass whilst deftly employing various vocal techniques ranging from throat singing to raspberries, to turn the discarded shards into crude musical instruments. The results are a wild array of oddly controlled cacophonous noise teetering on the edge of music. This show quite simply needs to be witnessed to be fully appreciated, let alone understood.

“Lucas is just captivating. It’s incredible how he can flip the feeling of a room upside down and sonically theres just no other sound like his” – ZACH HILL – Death Grips

“the most exciting performer I have seen in the last three years – in fact, since I first saw Iggy Pop” – Bruce Russell – WIRE
magazine.

“brilliantly immediate performance, galvanising and alien and funny, and free of safe gestures and easy comparisons.” – Frances Morgan – the quietus.

ESPM/SHITGRINDING

Flyer by Maz Benjamas

SHITGRINDER are Brisbane’s leanest and meanest killing machine, straight up no frills grinding fury with their own distinct sound. They just put out a shit-hot LP and are firing on all cylinders. 
Helping light the fuse are:
BLOODRULE – finally coming out of a 3 year hiding to belt out some of the hardest death-metallized PV mosh this side of Boston Tea Stop.
EXECUTION – Melbourne’s most manic hardcore punk right now, a heart attack delivered via obsession with Italy’s unique brand of punk berserkerism. 
DIPLOID – who just get uglier and more intense with each show. A dark as hell, heavy as shit off-kilter noise/punk/grind/doom cacophony/rapture. 
ESP MAYHEM – An evil klown synth-grind headache of combative blast and confused stabs at undanceable disco peanuttery.

Saturday September 8th at the Last Chance Rock N’ Roll Bar where the revelry or misery need never end. Get there at 8, stay til humiliation drives you back to your stinky hovel!

SPEW BALLOON: Sand-in-your-dacks-like-kitty-litter gromit crushers.
CLOGGED: S-bend blocking goregrind. BYO plunger.
