The thing about a rip snorter of a house party is that too often it is followed by The Fear.
The Fear: that gripping feeling of unease and looming regret that takes hold the morning after as you try to piece together the hazy details of last night’s tomfoolery and the extent and severity of your implication in same. Also known as The Ugly Truth. But as a wise fellow named F. Nietzsche once said: Art will save us from perishing of the truth.
So on 18 May, head along to the Next Wave Festival Opening Night House Party safe in the knowledge that on Saturday morning there will be a whole festival’s worth of awesome art ahead to save you from The Ugly Truth that is your hedonism-induced shame.
This party will be all about cheap drinks, free stuff, music, art, games, iPod DJs, food, karaoke, performance, surprises and far-out dancing.
Party on, Wayne. Party on, Garth.
WHEN: Friday 18 May, 6:30pm
WHERE: Footscray Community Arts Centre, 45 Moreland Street, Footscray
