Calvin Harris pledged to remix a Spice Girls song if Australia legalized gay marriage

This post was originally published on this site

Back in 2012, Calvin Harris reportedly pledged to remix the Spice Girls classic “2 Become 1” if Australia eventually legalized marriage equality.

Calvin Harris likely forgot about the promise he made half a decade ago, but Filip Odzak has certainly not forgotten about the Scottish superstar’s agreement with him. After the Australian House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly in favor of same sex marriage, Odzak was quick to remind Harris of their gentleman’s bet.

Odzak took to social media following the legislation’s passing, proclaiming that “We made a deal — sealed with a handshake,” adding that he has been waiting a lengthy five years for this. “I’m very excited to hear what you do with the track to celebrate the occasion.”

Even Spice Girl’s own Emma Bunton weighed in on the wager, “Let’s spice up Calvin Harris! It would be fab for Calvin to remix ’2 Become 1,’” she told British outlet The Sun.

It is unclear whether or not Calvin Harris will follow through with the bet, but Odzak is holding out hope, going so far as to state in an interview with Australia’s Power Back Radio show, “You’re very rich, you can have anything you want. I’ve got nothing, just do this for me.”

Here’s to hoping, for Odzak’s sake, that Harris does good on his word.

Alison Wonderland helps women propose at Australian show in honor of gay marriage

This post was originally published on this site

Australia joined the ranks of 25 other countries to officially legalize gay marriage on December 7, causing a wave of celebration over a legal battle that has been drawn out in the country for 13 years.

Alison Wonderland was on tour in home country at the height of festivities surrounding this development, and thus decided to use her gig in Sydney to show her support in an emotive fashion. The songstress assisted a woman in making her proposal unforgettable bringing the happy couple on stage and later giving them a shout-out on Twitter while expressing pride in her country.

The battle for marriage rights began in 2004, when the parliament amended the Marriage Act to ban the institution for gays. Since then, an overwhelming display of support for the return of their rights led to a new vote that officiated gay marriage as a legal right.

Sydney’s getting an insane new warehouse venue as a part of ‘The Warehouse Collective’ music series

This post was originally published on this site

Time to head down under, as Sydney, Australia is set to welcome a vast new warehouse space.

Set to open in Technology Park, the venue is part of an upcoming music series entitled The Warehouse Collective, a project created by the Sydney-based event organization The Division Agency, the mastermind behind events like Days Like This festival and the Goodbar events.

The new space comes on the heels of a questionable future for Sydney’s nightlife. Introduced in 2014, the city’s infamous lockout laws forced a 1:30 a.m. lockout at all clubs and 3 a.m. cease-service policy for all nightclubs and bars in central Sydney and the Kings Cross precinct.

Numerous lockout-law opposition groups have propped up in the city over the last three years, with artists following in their footsteps, offering their support. Nightlife regulators, ones like the Division Agency, still manage to further the musical endeavors in a city. They’re calling The Warehouse Collective “a warehouse experience on a scale never before seen in Sydney”.

And while the group is an innovator of all things house and techno, their new warehouse space will surely see out a series of huge lineups, pristine sound and lighting, and serve up unforgettable experiences.

The first of the events will take place Dec. 16 and will be headlined by the legendary Australian duo The Presets, featuring a formidable cast of support acts including Bag Raiders (live), Kilter, Nyxen, and LUCY CLICHE (live).

Tickets and more information are available here.
