Vag Halen - 20th Century Boy

Full review to follow. Although Fucked Up are an international touring machine, they still maintain strong links to their hometown — roots that are replenished through events like this monthly series of pay-what-you-can curated shows, which bring together music from diverse scenes alongside food, art and installations to engage the senses. There was a really positive vibe and everything was meticulously organized. The lineup for the final instalment (February 8, 2013) is insanely stacked, so don't miss out on it.

Heading out of The Beaver and into the streets, Vag Halen is putting a sexy feminist spin on some cock-rock favourites. Whether you want to excitedly chatter about how they're queering the aesthetic or just feel the sleazy lowdown grind of the guitars in your belly, this appeals equally to the cultural studies crowd and the types throwing up the devil horns.
