“RAVING IRAN” ENCORE SCREENING FRIDAY 1ST DEC

Due to popular demand, Sinematek and Wax Museum Records are stoked to announce an encore screening of RAVING IRAN on Friday 01 December.

Anoosh and Arash perform together under the moniker Blade&Beard in Tehran. Tired of hiding from the police and their stagnating career, they organise one last manic techno rave under dangerous circumstances in the desert. Back in Tehran they try their luck selling their illegally printed album without permission. When Anoosh is arrested, there seems to be no hope left. But then they receive a phone call from the biggest techno festival in the world. Once landed in Switzerland, the haze of the instant euphoria evaporates quickly when the seriousness of the situation starts to dawn on them.

Shot discreetly using iPhones, RAVING IRAN captures the raw and exhilarating underground techno scene in Tehran and the two DJs who defy the Islamic regime. Watch the trailer here: http://www.ravingiran.com/trailer.html

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here. Get in quickly this time kids!

Again, film will kick off at 6:30pm, beers from 6:00pm. See you then!

WAX MUSEUM SUBWAY SESSION #6


Wax Museum and
The Beats Below present Subway Session #6! We’re buzzing to once again have a vibrant mix of talented producers and DJs join us for one of our famous Friday night lock-ins.
 
Local beatsmith BryZone (YBP) surprised us all when he gingerly skipped through to consign us his “No Compaints” beat tape, released earlier this year. Since then it’s been on heavy rotation, thus it’s our pleasure to have him and his SP-404 do it all live from behind the Wax counter! Anyone who caught his LAB Co. counterparts do their thing a few sessions back will know what to expect, so get down early for this!
 
Following up on the decks in Room 1 will be Melbourne legend Jeff Holden spinning a premium selection of boogie, funk and associated grooves. A collector of deep and soulful underground music for as long as the genre has existed, his arrival to the sessions is epically overdue and we can’t wait to hear what he’s packed.
 
With Wax Museum heavies Barry Sunset, Benny Badge clocking some musical overtime and the promise of fine ales from the people at Sample Brew, Session Six will not be one to miss!
 

5pm til we’re done, mi subterraneo su subterraneo… OUR SUBWAY IS YOURS!! Full event info here.
