TUE TO SUN 12PM-LATE
We’ve teamed up with Research Records for a huge show on Mon 20 Mar. Live electronic four-piece Big Yawn return to the stage for the first time in 2023, taking a brief break from the studio to showcase some new material scheduled for release this year via Research Records.
Joining them on the evening are Acopia (Passing Notes) and YL Hooi (Efficient Space).
Kickstart your week and catch some incredible live acts, congregate with fellow music lovers, and enjoy a little sanctuary.
Melbourne quartet Big Yawn makes experimental electronic music by fusing a wash of sweeping synthesizers, heavily refracted vocal sampling, motorik-style percussion and disorientating dub FX.
YL Hooi (project of Valya Ying-Li Hooi since 2017) inhabits a multitude of genres and directions while retaining a distinctly personal stamp through her obsessively zoned-out dub production tactics, moving seamlessly from angelic song to gritty tape gunk. Her debut album Untitled (released by Altered States Tapes in 2019 then reissued by Efficient Space in 2021) was widely praised.
Acopia is the collaborative project of Kate Durman (Purient), Lachlan McGeehan (Liluzu) and Morgan Wright; an intimate excursion of ultra-emotive dream pop.
Social Sanctuary is proud to be sponsored by Mountain Goat. This show is supported by Creative Victoria.
