Young Henrys RIP IN WEEKENDER mini-fest will be a three-day soiree to be held from Friday, November 11 to Sunday, November 13, where live music, film, skating, and tattoo art will converge in one of the most eclectic weekends of the year.
A fixture of Manly since 1859, The Steyne Hotel will host DJ Sets from The DMA’s, Ruby Fields, Pacific Avenue, Teen Jesus and The Jean Teasers, Crocodylus, The Regime, and SCABZ. A musically diverse lot of artists that represents some of the best young performers of today’s Australian scene.
The weekend will open with the energetic NSW trio SCABZ, accustomed to rocking the house with their thoughtful brand of melodic punk. Another trio, Sydney-based act Crocodylus, will follow suit, known for their offering of indie rock that goes from the delicate to the strident, reminiscent of acts like the New Pornographers and The Decemberists.
To close the first night of mayhem comes Sydney-based rockers the DMA’s, considered global torchbearers of the Britpop revival sound in the last decade. A band on an upward curve since their breakout single ‘Delete’ in 2016, they’ve amassed a huge global following with their polished output of bright, catchy alternative rock. A perfect opportunity to watch a band at a high point of their career after the success of their album Glow, which won the Independent Album of the Year accolade at the 2021 AIR Awards, and managed to earn nominations at the ARIA’s, the J’s and Rolling Stone Australia Awards.
Saturday will kick off with The Regime, the Sydney big band collective known for their delicious mix of funk, disco, and hip-hop. They will be followed by Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers, exponents of a punchy, atmospheric post-punk sound. Next up to the plate will be Pacific Avenue, a four-piece alternative rock band from the Australian coastal town of Gerringong known for their blues-infused classic rock’n’roll. To cap off Saturday’s celebration of music comes singer-songwriter Ruby Fields. A native of Cronulla in Southern Sydney, Ruby is a noisy troubadour that exquisitely captures the little dramas, trials, and tribulations of being young with honest, unapologetic lyrics.
Now, if this incredible selection of artists wasn’t enough, the weekend-long bash will include skating, tattoo art, and film. Every night, Volcom Stone, the sports and outdoors lifestyle brand will be throwing a party outside the party, with a skating exhibition headlined by Australian Skater of the Year Rob Pace. For those wanting to spice up their look, Volcom’s resident nail artist will be presto to attend to all your needs.
Additionally, during the whole weekend partygoers will have the opportunity to get inked by the talented folks of Thanks Tattoos and Whistler Street Tattoo.
For the grand finale on Sunday, surf aficionados will be treated to a premiere screening of local hero Noa Deane’s latest film! Want more? Popular podcast Ain’t That Swell will also be there having a live stream.
Oh, but wait, there is more! Young Henrys and Volcom are partnering to give away a three-night stay at the Hotel Steyne, a prize that includes a $500 bar tab and loads of merchandise. You can enter here for a chance to win.
