Racerage: Racerage is an emerging politi-cute queer post-internet rapper based on Wurundjeri country. Their lyrical themes draw from their background in spoken word; focusing on the struggles, frustrations and interweb memory of intersectional feminism, decolonisation, race issues and the queer bubble. Racerage collaborates primarily with other QTIPOC beatmakers and artists and is excited about creating creative expression within and about their communities.
Devil Goat Family String Band: Devil Goat Family String Band are a five piece band who play high-energy bluegrass and fiddle tunes like they’ve never gone out of style. Their contemporary arrangements of traditional tunes utilize the twin fiddles of Kate Conner and Sophia Dunn, banjo of Gus Macmillan (Blue Grassy Knoll), Guitar of Luke Byrnes and Double Bass of Fran Evans. They traverse the old timey and new-grass traditions, and generate a live energy that is truly infectious to music-lovers of all generations. http://devilgoatfamilystringband.com
