Baker Boy …
Dark Mofo’s late night offerings have established a cult following over the past five years, and this winter the annual Hobartian ritual rises again, summoning thee to Night Mass.
One ticket will play passport to this party-goer’s promised land across five venues and two outdoor spaces in central Hobart. Night Mass will lure the faithful into a labyrinthine neighbourhood writhing with contemporary dance, avant electronic, rock’n’roll, blood sports, misty archways and car bars, Cambodian drag, sonic ping-pong, erotic dance to sad songs, DJs spinning classical music, and some surprises.
Musical highlights announced for Night Mass include hardcore punk heavyweights High Tension, swoony Kiwi crooner Marlon Williams, Fijian hip-hop from Brisbane-based MC Jesswar, industrial electro-pop goth Zola Jesus, and a DJ set from electro-punk powerhouse Alice Glass.
Chilean band Föllakzoid bring their dreamy cosmic rock, Arnhem Land rapper Baker Boy will perform his danceable hip-hop in both English and Yolŋu Matha, plus LA artist Geneva Jacuzzi will bring her uncompromisingly obtuse synth-driven pop and unreal performance art.
Other highlights include David Lynch collaborator and impassioned chanteuse Rebekah Del Rio, Brooklyn based rapper Ms. Boogie, site-specific art installations from US architectural light artist Matthew Schreiber, and James Tapscott’s unearthly portal Vivisection.
Night Mass is presented by Riverlee, with support from The Grand Poobah and Cinema One for Dark Mofo 2018.
