Memo Mid-Winter Open Day – Sun 16 July, 2:00pm
Feat. two fun and extremely talented local bands:
THE LARGE NO. 12s + UNCLAIMED BAGGAGE.
Following the success of the ‘St Kilda Festival Open Day’ over the past two years, the MEMO team have decided to open its doors to the public every season of the year to showcase a stunning 100 year old art deco live music venue and a beautiful bunch of great live music acts, who will undoubtedly take you to another place.
Drop by and take a peek where you can experience a cosy warm atmosphere, reasonably priced drinks, FAB music, MEMO ticket and drink voucher giveaways and a great atmosphere as a chance to escape your boxed up lounge room and the icy winded streets of St Kilda, into the cosy warm hall of MEMO.
THE LARGE NO. 12s
The Large Number 12s (affectionately known as “The Largies”) don’t care if it’s 20 people or 1000 people the songs get played with the belief they were written with.Other musicians love the Largies because they are still making great rock, great melodies, great rhythms and great noise.
Once upon a time a late night pizza bar in Bendigo did not have a Large Number 12. After taunting and haranguing from certain drunken youths, the late night pizza bar created a large number 12 pizza. Years later a band was formed in Bendigo and its creator named it the Large Number 12s.
The Large Number Twelves sometimes worked and sometimes broke up, sometimes enjoyed praise and sometimes scorn. Sometimes real music is ignored sometimes not. In the early 90s the leader of the Large Number 12s decided to re-form the band with a rhythm section from a covers band he was working in.
They played covers and snuck in originals, people listened. One Sunday night an Adelaide record producer heard the band and stated he would record them in the pub. Six months later he showed up with a recording studio in the back of his truck and recorded the album “Every Sunday”.See their facebook page for more..
The band opened the show for Mental As Anything earlier in 2017, and were such a success, Mentals fans were lining up after the performance wanting to find out more about this wonderfully talented, fun band “Unclaimed baggage”.
