GZA is coming to Australia!

GZA, RZA and Bill MuzZA
GZA, RZA and Bill MuzZA.

Amidst my 'urgh' (British India), 'cool' (The Bronx) and 'URGH' (Eskimo Joe) reactions to this morning's Coaster Festival line-up announcement there was also an unexpected/girly squeal of excitement.

And the reason for this gleeful shrill of pleasure?

Sandwiched somewhere between Van She, Van She Tech and some hip new Van She cover band there was a single standout name - the GZA. Yesssss... the Wu-Tang Clanner, the lyrical genius, the man/brain behind the classic Liquid Swords record will be heading our way in September! This really is turning out to be the year of Da Wu.

The initial line-up:

  • GZA
  • The Bronx
  • Eskimo Joe
  • Bliss N Eso
  • Does It Offend You, Yeah?
  • British India
  • Van She
  • Grafton Primary
  • The Airborne Toxic Event
  • Children Collide
  • The Fumes
  • Pez
  • Gin Wigmore
  • Ajax
  • The John Steel Singers
  • The Scare
  • Slow Down Honey
  • Yacht Club DJs

School girl style excitement aside, here are 'the facts':

  1. The festival will take place on Saturday, September 12 at Gosford Showgrounds
  2. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 24 at 9am
  3. Gosford is 76km from Sydney, 91km of Newcastle and about 40 million kms from Staten Island

It's obviously too early for the most exciting part of all this (Sydney GZA sideshows!) but we will be sure to let you know as soon as any lovely bit of info when it becomes 'reality'.

I lost Chen's number! And in further disturbing news, I realised I'll be out of the country Sept 12. DENIED.

I have heard rumours of a Bronx mariachi set while they're here though. I sincerely hope the gods of 'event promotion' shine upon me and schedule it on a respectable date, ie. when I am in the country.

yeah i heard mariachi set as opener! brain imploded trying to process so much awesomeness in one evening.

Bella...i think the festival ladies will require a full time driver & van soon...we can maximise photo ops by cruising round the inner west....and bondi.

The loan seem to be very useful for guys, which want to start their own business. In fact, it's not hard to get a sba loan.
