An introduction from our MC

Welcome to the Nest
By CJ Shaw

For those who leave their homes to follow the poets
with prose in their bones

For those who peak on beats n seek treacle sweet melodies
getting kicks from sonic tricks
ears pricked and singing

For those with winged shoes choosing to shoo away the blues
bouncing, swaying, swinging,
flinging up dust from the floor boards
and grinning

For those whose heart chooses art as departure from the blasting farcical
The neon nothingness
The empty vessel
(thats now become the modern model)

For those who seek company with like minded, small time messiahs
heart warming, informal,
all big ideas and small talk

and for all the rest
Welcome to the Nest

Featuring:
Plate Captain Frank
Snagglepuss

Woody Allen Hoo-Haa

The Nest & Plate Captain Frank present Myfanwy’s Stockings: The Clay – an insane freeloading demon taking the guise of a variety evening. Starting inside the studio & spilling out onto the balcony this evening features musical genius & nonsense from Plate Captain Frank, Snagglepuss, Deaf Hedge & Woody Allen Hoo-Haa; stunning art installations of mixed mediums; poetry slamming; a meat & vege friendly BBQ; face painting; & audience Vs performers (@Twister or Nintendo – chosen by draw).

This installation of The Nest is being supported by Music NSW’s Indent partnership program and is being organised, managed and run by The Nest’s youth volunteer team.

Plate Captain Frank


Dinosaur-electro & vicious stage antics combined with backing dancers & visual displays has caused much ambivalence towards Plate Captain Frank throughout Sydney. Threats of violence, breaking up a marriage & being banned from The Sly Fox are just the beginning of his rampant schizophrenic journey. Expect nothing & you’ll still be disappointed.

Snagglepuss


a four piece awash on the northern beaches, a place where plenty travel for sights and screeches. The musical style of Snagglepuss, having matured along with its members, would best be described as contemporary, incorporating a multitude of unconventional sounds from around the urban soundscape. The inaugural performance of the acclaimed, Roman inspired suite ‘Super Luna Mons Montis’ will be at The Nest, February 6, 2010…

Deaf Hedge


Founded by Thomas Dodd and Max Schollar – Root when they were barely pubescent and had a penchant for messed up humour. These ex-drama students took their acting skills to the music stage, crafting elaborate stories punctuated by songs to create a theatre/music fusion. Pushing over the boundaries of theatre and music and dancing on the charred remains, Deaf Hedge have been active for close to a decade! Presented like shock therapy, Deaf Hedge slams into the ears and eyes of its audience aiming to make them REACT!

Woody Allen Hoo-Haa


The Woody Allen Hoo-Haa is an experimental, psychedelic, noise punk group who incorporate free jazz, krautrock and ambient overtones in their music. Their music is often based on one riff or lyric, and then improvised and expanded upon until the piece reaches a chaotic, noisy, textured intensity…. Sort of like a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.

The Nest #5 – Saturday February 6th

Plate Captain Frank is hosting an evening of variety, under the name ‘Myfanwy’s Stockings: The Clay”. The event features 4 bands plus an array of outdoor activities and art installations.

Plate Captain Frank

Schizophrenic pop with backing dancers

Deaf Hedge

A collision of crass comedy cabaret rock, combining music and costume changes and satirical theatre and downright hilarity! Deaf Hedge like to take a genre, get it drunk so that it spills all its secrets, then humiliate it in front of its friends.

Snagglepuss

Woody Allen Hoo-Haa

experimental, psychedelic, noise punk with free jazz, krautrock and ambient overtones haha.
The basic song structure is based on possibly one riff, drum beat or lyrics etc and is then expanded upon through improvisation unlike the piece reaches a chaotic, noisy and textured intensity…. Sort of like a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.

The Nest

THE NEST is an all ages gig series, held at Megaphon Studios in St Peters. The bands that play at each gig are filmed and recorded and the Nest produce some awesome video clips from these materials. The recording studio is an intimate venue for live gigs and has full, rich sound, controlled and enhanced by the studios’ experienced engineers and production team. The space has been decked out a massive PA system, 2 rotating intelligent lights, an amazing starbrite lighting curtain as a back drop for the stage, some colourful LEDs, and a bunch of standard par cans. The lighting show really enhances the visual side of the production and adds to the overall vibe of the show. Some of the production crew have also contributed to the look, sound and feel of the space by installing some of their art, craft and creative ideas in and around the building.

We have had 3 gigs so far and the fourth one is scheduled for December 5th with alt-country band, Billygoat and the Mongrels and the vaudevillian style of On The Stoop booked to play. More bands will be announced soon.
