Joey Kellock's RISING 2022 Picks
The beloved, jazz-obsessed restaurateur behind 1800 lasagne talks us through the RISING 2022 shows he's frothing for.
"GO ICE SKATING BECAUSE ICE SKATING IS FUCKING COOL ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE A LIVE CHOIR SINGING YOUR SOUNDTRACK."
"Then after ice skating walk through The Wilds, come get some lasagne, drink some wine, and enjoy the one hundred hours of Melbourne’s best DJs programmed by 1800 Lasagne—every night of the festival."
"Read up on this work. It follows writer John Harvey’s (Torres Strait Islands) interpretation of my buddy Jason Tamiru’s (Yorta Yorta) lived experiences as a repatriation worker, and the discredited and harmful scientific theory of eugenics, which Australia was once a hotspot for. This Malthouse Theatre production is an absolute must see."
"Mind blowing rapid-fire jazz rhythm psych. Supported by local legends and PBS stalwarts, Mike Gurrieri (host of Mystic Brew) and Shio Otani (host of Eternal Rhythm)."
SAMPA THE GREAT: AN AFRO FUTURE
"Sampa the Great because obvi Sampa the Great."
