DISTRO DAY OUT 2016 // 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY // 30 January 2016

Hello friends

30th JANUARY 2016 will be a wild one!

See you there!











Some anticipated questions
1) What the hell is this? 
This is DISTRO DAY OUT 2016, a 5th Year Anniversary. By circumstances and coincidences it will host 4 events all under one roof, THE SUBSTATION at 45 Armenian Street. 

This will have
- DISTRO DAY OUT @ The Substation Gallery (the one with glass doors) where a host of distros will gather and sell / trade merch! 1pm till 11pm, FREE ADMISSION. 

- DISTRO DAY OUT GALLERY OF NOISE @ The Substation Gallery closes the event with a 2 hour blast of harsh noise / drone / power electronics and the fuck knows what else. Distros will still operate while this goes on. 9pm till 11pm, FREE ADMISSION


- THE EXPLOITED concert @ The Substation Theater (the black box type place) where we will have legendary UK punks The EXPLOITED as well as a host of other bands (flyer to be placed here soon soon). 3pm till 10pm TICKETED EVENT. 


- DISTRO DAY OUT After Party @ The Substation is a concert after a concert! From 10pm till 12midnight.  $10 ENTRY, separate event from The Exploited show. 


2) Why so many events?
Total coincidence with the bands from out of town. DDO also always runs on the last weekend of January. Always. We either do it at more than one location and divide the community, or use common sense and bring everyone together to witness a disastrous spectacle. We prefer the latter, and most punks feel the same way.


3) Why wouldnt both concerts just be one and not confuse everyone?
Both concerts had their own little deals and agreements, to put them together would just be admin hell. So to keep it separate but under one roof keeps things sensible and fair. Not everyone will want to go to both shows.


4) Cool, can my band play? Sorry, no. It's less than 3 weeks to the show. 

5) Why are some events free and some not? Cost, circumstances and the nature of each event. We all have our own little agreements/arrangements at the same time we want to keep this affordable.

6) Will walk-ins still be permitted in DISTRO DAY OUT?
Yes but the usual terms apply. You get your own little floor space. You are responsible for everything. However in recent DDO events people have acted like dicks and took full advantage of this openness. Things like not saying thank you or just being in the way. Some sold quite a lot of shit but made no decency to donate some funds to offset costs of running this. It is not really about the money, but sometimes people do things that show what shitheads they really are. We encourage some humanity around here you know?


7) Why the Gallery? Your recent DDOs were in the theater? Was the concert the reason? To be honest we ALWAYS preferred the Gallery. it is more affordable, it is more sensible as a space, but availability was always an issue. We had our first ever DDO in the Gallery and to have it back for our 5th year anniversary is always fantastic!

8) Why so many details on the flyer?
Because smart people will read and understand and maybe ask questions to understand deeper. Stupid ones will read everything and then have no fucking idea, and then ask stupid questions again closer to the date. Might as well just write it down in the simplest possible form and let life run its course.


See you!!!

December and a DDO 2016 teaser....

Holy fucking shit we are almost ending the year. It scares the fuck out of us how fast time flies. Anyway check out these shows, all counting down to oblivion...! Living the chaos!






Also...!





Before you apply, some notes straight from the horses mouth...

  • We will require a $50 minimum donation for each registered distro (which means your distro name will be on the flyer and you are guaranteed a table). 
  • Walk ins are still welcome but its first come first served.
  • All distros will need to pay "rent" whether or not you are registered or a walk in. You will be given a small envelope the moment you set up stall and will be requested to put something in there.
  • We dont want to do this but in recent installments people have been abusing our easy going nature, for instance setting up stall, made huge sales but never even bothered with a word of thanks or offer of help / rent. We know who we're talking about. Dont take this special carnival of the underground for granted because we'll be very glad to fuck with you. :)
  • As usual no right wing fascist racist or commercial shit.
********

Expected FAQ
- What if i register and dont make enough to cover rent? Dont run away, speak to us and we can work something out. This is more about preventing abuse, and promoting personal communication. We are never about implementing money. Fuck money, it blinds us all but its our reality too at the end of it all.

-  I only have a handful of items and no organized distro. Can i take part?  Yes but it is recommended you walk in, or merge with other walk ins just to make sense of the space. Also actual DISTROS are priority, this is not your usual flea market, although flea market type items better be bad ass or prepare to be given shit hahaha....

- Is this the same show as the one with Exploited and Kromosom?
Yes, but this NOT a show. It is a gathering of distros, and yes for the past few installments we have shows and after parties. The show will be at the Substation Theater while DDO 2016 will be in the Substation Gallery where it all started! Two different spaces under one roof! This will be a hell of a day!

THANK YOU + mid November...

Hey!

THEN AND NOW FEST was awesome! Thank you all who came, the bands who performed and the vibe throughout the 3 days. Second day in particular was a little insane!
Best wishes to SEE YOU IN HELL whose guitarist Filip faced a severe liver complication prior to the tour! Get well soon bro!
Best wishes also to DJ Ryan Pittam, still stuck in Thailand due to passport visa issues!
Thank you to VAPAHTAJA, THE SHABBAB, GENERASI 90, SEE IT THROUGH, TURTLES JR and LECHEROUS GAZE for being great guests!!!!!

No thanks to DEADRUIN for not turning up without a word or apology. Maybe THEN AND NOW Fest or DIY shows in particular may not be so important. 

But that's life. It has to go on.

Anyway here's whats going to happen next week! See you there!
