DUNG will be playing with our friends at the launch of Publikarts’ KATA KITA fest. It’s FREE and it’s happening at the all-new open-air staging area Publika Square.
EVERYBODY DIPERSILAKAN HADIR!! IT’LL BE FUN, FUN, FUN! THERE’LL BE BOOTHS of stuff & also BYO allowed!
the LIVE BANDS part of the launch starts around 7PM and features:
“hi-energy, lo-culture” bunch of geezers playing electrified, sped-up & ridiculously livid modern folk music.
Uplifting reggae meets fist-pumping punk rock sprinkled with trippy dub adventures.
Brittle, raucous year zero punk rock dragged kicking and screaming back into 2011; tempered with rough’n’ready, skank-friendly reggae and dub.
REBOOT THE ROOTS BAND
Reboot the Roots is a charity working to promote the inclusion of the socially excluded â€“ recovering drug users, the stateless, the underprivileged, young offenders and those living with HIV/AIDS. We support the ideals of universal human rights and humanisation and believe everyone should be free to participate in society.
Yes, they have a BAND!
