Addressing pertinent matters such as kissing/fighting in the pit, favourite hardcore grunts, perpetuating Asian stereotypes, Is Punk Dead? and playing stuff from my label, An Out Recordings.
I think Jenn, the host, at one stage, said I talked like “Bob Ross but in your mouth” and that “punk’s not dead, it’s in Anna Vo’s mouth”. Haha.
I mainly used airtime as an excuse to make dumb noises and stupid accents.

Timely sets up the drumkit.
After I trained them all week, the whole gearteam were responsible for setting up and running this showcase.

My junior volunteer gear team, with their impromptu band, The Distortions, with their song, Jaden Smith, made up entirely of abstract sentences from his Twitter, such as “The Human Consciousness Must Raise Before I Speak My Juvenile Philosophy.”

This badass junior volunteer team gave workshops yesterday about setting up a PA, and used the phrase “stereo field”… So stoked/proud!

Releases on An Out Recordings

AN OUT RECORDINGS, along with being an ethical, anarchist label, has always made an effort to release more projects from women, people of colour and queer people, which has meant releasing projects that are sometimes less well-known, or less established than others on the label roster. AN OUT tries to curate a rotating mix between doom, black metal, harsh noise and drone, and asks fans to check out stuff from the label that they might not have heard before, to support upcoming artists. Feel free to ask any questions about any of the roster. Always open to submissions from thoughtful, brutal, political projects.
