  • Let’s Run Away (Afro Caribbean)
  • Into the Cosmos (space house cosmic rock)
  • Concrete Grind (hip hop, r n’ b, electro funk)

Salon Gatherings

The Monster Salon and Dining rooms at Hotel Hotel were a reinterpretation of the suburban family rooms of immigrants in Australia post WWII. It was a domestic place. At once a parlour for receiving guests, for talking art and politics, a living room for lolling around by the fire with friends, a place for listening to music, and a room for sharing meals. At times, we gathered old and new friends here to exchange ideas and we host conversations, poetry readings and performances. Fittingly, we often shared stories about immigration, about how immigration increases the textures and layers of a place’s cultural fabric. These are important stories. Especially in a time when the number of people displaced by conflict is at its highest since the aftermath of WWII.
