Real Life Music

With Cheap Fakes and Volcanic Lovers

After experiencing an unpredictably long period of quiet Friday nights, Lovestreet Studios are bringing live music back to HOTA. We’re talking real life music, with real life musicians, so close you it seems like you could touch them (no, you can’t touch them).

Emerging from the realms of isolation for their live debut live performance since the pandemic began are Cheap Fakes and Volcanic Lovers. Multiple members from the bands were recipients of our Rage Against V(irus) artist fund, and now’s your chance to see them IRL.

The night will be filled with punchy horn lines, vocal harmonies, sweaty drum grooves and the most important ingredient… a good dose of hip sway.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts and Lovestreet Studios

Installation: Orange

Experience the joy and absurdity of Orange while you’re at the Lakeside. Orange is a striking and almost unmissable being – moving, living; striving to be an enigma in an increasingly strange and changing environment. Drawing on performance and choreographic practices, Orange aims to capture some of the joys, sorrows, absurdities and small freedoms of our new normal lifestyles during the Covid-19 crisis. Providing a glimpse into the private world of this individual, who in many ways, reflects all of us.

Orange, created by Daniele Constance and Jorge Serra, was originally supported by our Artist Fund, Rage Against the V(irus). Read more about the project here.

Keeping you safe

It is incredibly important to us that you have a safe experience when you come to HOTA. We have a COVID-Safe plan which you can read on our FAQs page and the Fireside sessions will be set up to ensure we meet all social distancing and hygiene guidelines. All you have to do is enjoy yourself!

Eat & Drink

Good news – food is included in your table purchase for this event.

As the music starts heating up, we’ll be serving up some comfort food for a wintery night with Beef Yakitori (gf), Chicken and Lemongrass Dumplings, and rice with Asian Herb Salad.  Just made for sharing with good friends. And we’ll keep the good times rolling by bringing your drinks direct to your table. You won’t have to lift a finger!

Food will be served between 7-7.30pm and is included in the ticket price. This event is table service only.


Presented as part of HOTA’s Fireside Program.

This program is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
