|Brisbane, get ready for a free gig experience like no other. TKAY MAIDZA and visual artist EGO have joined forces thanks to the party people of ROAM with a free show at The Brightside, Brisbane on Friday July 14.
Fusing beer with a cheeky dash of flavour, ROAM pairs harmonious flavours and to celebrate its launch, joins two powerhouses of creativity; Australia’s queen of electronic hip-hop, Tkay Maidza and leading visual artist EGO, to collaborate for a world-first live event of music and art.
World class warm up DJs will throw some heat on the dancefloor to begin the night followed by the main event, Tkay and Ego. Activating a visually stunning stage backdrop – live painted on stage while Tkay Maidza performs, Ego will projection map his signature style animations onto the artworks, bringing the evolving backdrop to life with Tkay as the soundscape. This one-of-a-kind activation has never been performed live before and at the end of the night, fans will be able to see an entirely unique and un-repeatable piece of art. This will then be given away as a limited run of merchandise.
Tkay Maidza has risen out from the underground since the tender age of 15 to emerge as one of Australia’s most captivating artists and a global force. Ego has spent the last few years wowing audiences around Australia and the world with his visual work and live performances, recently exhibiting at Sydney’s VIVID Festival as well as MONA FOMA to rave reviews. Ego’s effortless visual style will be an ideal match for Tkay’s electric live show. Both Tkay and Ego are trailblazers in their worlds, they don’t overthink things. In fact, they ‘underthink it’ and just got for it when it comes to their art. It’s this carefree and seemingly effortless attitude that makes these two talented cross genre artists the perfect pairing for such an event.
This is a free 18+ event, with RSVP via the ROAM Facebook page. #UnderthinkIt
