Laser Highway takes over Loop Project Space and Bar for the first time to host Australia’s only night dedicated to the very best anything-with-the-word-wave-in-it, italo-disco, outrun, electro, 80’s jams, games, and anything else firmly with its roots in 80’s synthesizer-based music to keep you grooving into the night!
We are back with a vengeance in 2017 at a new venue, monthly schedule, opening hours, incredible sound, double the lasers, projections, cocktail list, supplementary game space and an actual dancefloor (!!!) to transport you to your retro home away from home. We’ve prided ourselves on creating a radically inclusive alternative club night, to give you an experience that’s all about the music, the good times, a touch of nostalgia and camaraderie from your past, present and future friends that you haven’t yet met.
To make things even more super special, it is the second anniversary of Laser Highway’s existence, with some birthday surprises expected! We are also debuting an incredible Melbourne darkwave trio and interstate DJ plus your local LH stalwarts to keep the party rocking. This is the rebirth of the best night of your life (your mileage may vary)!
Togetherapart are a Melbourne Darkwave trio with an ethereal, melancholic sound, combining crunchy beats, gritty analog synths, shimmering guitars, and haunting vocals. Known for their atmospheric, textural shows utilising projected visuals, walls of smoke and splintering lights, the band have played regularly in Melbourne since hitting the scene in late 2014, and recently completed their first interstate trip to headline the Aether Sessions at Woolly Mammoth in Brisbane.
Togetherapart build their songs live on stage using samples, synths, guitar, vocals, percussion sampler, and effects, leading to an organic and spontaneous performance not locked to rigid backing tracks. Their current sets are performed as a continuos flow of music and sound, as each song merges into the next.
Currently focused on pursuing further slots on established events, and releasing new music, the trio released the singles “Too Far” and “Still Here” in 2016, followed by a number of remixes by an array of local producers. The group continue to evolve their sound and live show, exploring self-produced visuals, new aural textures, and an expanding range of instruments and technology.
