As part of the Sydney Festival 2010 the Mods have put together what is more like a mini festival within the whole event focussing on Australian post punk, avant-guard and experimental electronic music.
Circa 1979 opening party kicks off on January 15 at the Seymour Centre with a key note address John Cale from the Velvet Underground.
The event includes live shows across the city from bands such as Severed Heads, The Reels, Steve Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) as well as art installations from hoarders of this period and there is a series of moderated panel discussions discussing the once lost musical and film catalogue.

This is set to be an epic few days of great music, art and all sorts from a scarcely documented era in Australian music. Hats off to people at Modular and Sydney Fest for setting this doozy up!
