AFROFUNK + LATIN GYSPY SKA + HIPHOP! Triple Threat Throwdown live @ Transit Bar!
Featuring: Lyre Byrdland (SYD) + Los Chavos (ACT) + Coolio Desgracias + House Mouse (ACT) - 7" single launch





/////Lyre Byrdland/////
10-piece afro-funk sensation Lyre Byrdland have been melting down clubs in Sydney for the past two years and are now ready to take their mix of Nigerian afro-beat and tight funk to the Transit Bar as part of their first national tour. 
With a four-piece horn line-up featuring some of Sydney’s grooviest masters of brass and a powerful rhythm section that never stops moving, Lyre Byrdland has honed their distinctly modern sound to get your heart pumping and your body moving. 

Drawing inspiration from the greats of the genre such as Fela Kuti and The Daktaris as well contemporary powerhouses Daft Punk and Snarky Puppy, Lyre Byrdland’s sound is both reassuringly familiar like a comfy old sweater but strikingly fresh like a new pair of jeans.

//////Los Chavos/////
Local trouble makers Los Chavos are know to infect venues and festivals with their one-sound mix of latin vibes, ska + rock overtones and reggae gypsy undertones.

They released their debut LP “Supermeng” in 2012 at the first Day of the Dead Fiesta - Canberra. The album was a significant development and evolution of their live performances and showcases signature their energy coupled with complex arrangements and a large variety of rhythms - but never straying too far from their ska/reggae roots. Romantic ballads are given a ska/cumbia twist and hard-hitting merengue horns are mixed with calypso-hiphop.

////Coolio Desgracias + HouseMouse////
Coolio has spent countless hours shootin; hoops, poppin' and lockin' on cardboard danceflo's, relacing his air jordans and listenin' to Rock It, MIdnight Star and the Beatstreet soundtrack. Coolio seeks to bring the hip hop to any style he inhabits. Whatever he does will always be that pimp shit, that freshly baked schwarzwald kirsch kuchen shit. Coolio & Mouse will be launching their 7" single!
