GIG: Solid State: Darknet, Perth, featuring cTrix

"We're back. We're bigger, harder, faster and louder than ever. We've returned to the stomping grounds where the very first Solid State was held, and we're bringing with us the monster laser light show, our trademark electro-psychedelic decor and cybernetic sculptures, and a full cadre of highly trained Resistance DJs, performing alongside some of the best and biggest names from Perth's underground music scene, spanning two arenas and more than a dozen genres of wickedly fierce tunes.

But we figured that ain't enough. We're pulling no punches - You can expect cyborg gogo dancers and hoop performances, live VDJ projections, interactive art, costume prizes, and hacker challenges - Plus a complimentary cortical implant for every sentient being through the door, to facilitate your interface with the rest of the darknet, molecular-engineered food and refreshments, mood-enhancing nano fogs and nootropics for your experimental pleasure."

Saturday 27th April 10pm - 4am
$20 Door sales
Gilkisons Dance Studio 45 Murray St Perth
