|VCR Fest – Cry Club|
Emerging as one of Australia’s most energetic, riled-up noise-pop acts, Cry Club are for anyone who’s ever been called too emotional, too sensitive, too much. Influenced by the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Eilish Gilligan, they wanted to build songs you can communally cry and dance to. Cry Club are an antidote to apathy.
Their debut single ‘Walk Away’ was titled “one of the best debut singles of the year” by Pilerats. Their follow up, ‘DFTM’ was added to full rotation on Triple J and saw them dubbed Unearthed Feature Artist while ‘Two Hearts’ only continued this trend, pushing them into a wider audience with support slots with Alice Ivy, Holy Holy and WAAX.
The inaugural VCR Fest (Virtual Common Rooms Festival) will take over screens this 31 July – 2 August, bringing Fringe Common Rooms to life online while the venue is closed to the public. This three-day event will showcase the provoking, inspiring and entertaining work being made by the likes of Zoë Coombs Marr, Cry Club, Joel Bray, Marie’s Crisis and more.
Presented on a newly created digital platform, VCR Fest will feature an interactive digital foyer and a choose your price format payable at the end of the performance to create a unique online experience.
