R6 Connect via Facebook: Racket – Sound, Art, Experiments.
For anyone is Melbourne who is familair with live experimental music and holds appreciation for live visuals, Racket night would be an essential night to experience as it attracts great deal of live electronica artists & new media manipulators on a monthly basic. With 6 months of events in its history, the future looks bright for Racket collective. Running every first Thursday of every month @ Miss Libertines, next installement is scheduled for Thursday 6th of January 2011 with a splendid line up of electronic artists and live visualists (7pm-Midnight). The event is aimed to support Melbourne live media scene for performers and pundits alike, all while keeping entry prices to the event most affordable. $5! Bargain! Support those events that support you and soak up great selection of live music and visuals!
As for the venue itself, recently I had inspected Miss Libertines in person, I can say that the venue is a comfortable place to enjoy your night out, with great and tasty food, student friendly beer prices and overall cosy atmosphere. Located at 34 Franklin Street (Melbourne City), its an easy place to find and in close to trains and trams.
