Summerland Records – Launch Party

Local Gold Coast label Summerland Records has been revived after a 10 year hiatus, and are throwing a huge launch event to celebrate! The Summerland crew have teamed up with esteemed local art space-come-venue, Currumbin’s own Dust Temple, to host a launch party & local industry showcase that you should probably engrave into the calendar. Kicking 2023’s doors in with a national tour featuring North Carolina’s He Is Legend, then followed up with the vinyl immortalisation of HELM’S debut post-rock classic, Vol 1…’Keelhaul’, is definitely one way to reinstate your presence in the Australian music community. The launch will see live 90’s MTV Unplugged inspired performances by Grace Drummond (Something Something Explosion), VERUM, Jay Brown (Sunk Loto) as well as a very special one off reunion for HELM, performing select songs from all three records to cap things off, post sundown. Local Bass Warlock and psychedelic party starter, Jack Rabbit, will kick off and fill any and all vacant space throughout the night, with his mind bending funk-fuelled trip-hoppin’. The event will also showcase pop-ups by local, independent powerhouses such as Badlands Vinyl, Old Flame Label, Roadsick Apparel, Fortitude Brand, Padre Beer, + an art & music stall containing wares from a handful of badass local artists and various merch items from both Summerland, the Beats Cartel artist roster and the aforementioned businesses.

Dust Temple, Sun Oct 15 from 2pm – 8pm. Come mingle, eat & drink, party, talk business, go shoppin’ and disappear into the lush soundscape at what is shaping up to be a spring afternoon for the books.
