ANNOUNCEMENT FOR MANDATORY READING:
On the 2nd of December, we will be hosting the 1st ever Goodgod Hunger Trivia.
The reaping will take place beginning today. In a week’s time, all tributes must come to the Goodgod Front Bar-ena.
Make sure to come dressed in your best outfits to impress the sponsors. Weapons and pens will be provided in the games.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
Victors receive a lifelong allowance for smugness knowing that you know everything there is to know about a girl with a bendy stick and plenty of other pointy sticks and a game where kids beat each other up.
(no spoilers in the trivia, but go and watch Mockingjay 2! Bring tissues)
Please note: The questions will be mostly from the movies, but also some from the books.
Brought to you by Goodgod Smallclub and Belly Bao.
Other December topics:
9 Dec – Star Wars with Angus and Levins
16 Dec – Xmas Movie Extravaganza with Elisha May
23 Dec – CLOSED for schmoozing

As our days heat up and the northern hemisphere braces for winter, the warm sounds of their summer spills over to our shores. Paddling in to bring his tropical vibes is breakout Norwegian DJ/producer Matoma, announcing his debut Australian tour this December.
In the past year, the 24-year old producer born Tom Lagergren has clocked an astounding 80 million plays on his Soundcloud from his unique and heartfelt remixes and edits ranging from Eminem to Maroon 5. A top all stands ‘Old Thing Back‘, his remix turned collaboration with Notorious B.I.G. which fused old school hip hop with the burgeoning electronic genre of ‘tropical house’ to create a song that is coming up on 100 million plays on Spotify since release and is considered by many to be a game-changer for the genre.
Rather than choosing a single genre label, Lagergren prefers to simply call his output the future of pop music. His skills as a producer have indeed gained high-level attention from the pop world, with his recent track ‘Try Me’, a collaboration with Jason Derulo andJennifer Lopez, receiving a warm critical response and 50 million more plays so far. Vibecalled the track a “perfect tune for drop-top weather” and SPIN labeled it the best song of Lopez’s career.
Now Matoma drops his long awaited follow-up single, featuring vocals from Jamaican dancehall hero Popcaan and reputable Washington D.C. rapper, Wale, titled ‘Feeling Right (Everything Is Nice)’. The perfect single to warm us up for summer, it continues to stakeMatoma‘s sole claim over the more urban side of tropical with a classic hip hop vibe and a nod to his future and perhaps the future of pop: a little more caribbean, contemporary and courageous.
Don’t miss Matoma‘s long-awaited Australian debut performances.

The BV Quarterly returns after a too-long delay, kissing the summer’s blessed beginning. Picture yourself soaking in sun long into the evening as the air stays balmy, heavy with the anticipation of another night with your purveyors of humid club music, Black Vanilla.
Last time we met, we spoke about liberating our bodies. Let us be more specific. If you, your skin, your kin, your identity is oppressed by dominant social forces in this world of slickly laden power, BV Quarterly is a safer space. Our friends enjoying social power in this society can make room for those others, to help us be liberated from the normative, to elevate our souls to greater heights. Then, only then, we will be a union of indivisible hearts under the rhythm of the club.
We’ll be enjoying the stage with Gussy, a queer icon forged outside of time and space, alongside Del and Lorna Clarkson, two of our favourite selectors from adjacent ends of Sydney’s vast rhythmic landscape.
♫ LISTEN: BLACK ON BLACK ON BLACK – BLACK VANILLA

HALFWAY CROOKS are joining forces with the mighty RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY to present a very special FULL VENUE party on Saturday 5th December.
Headling the event are hugely buzzing UK/USA duo GOLDEN RULES, bringing their soulful, psychedelic hip-hop – likened to that of the might Outkast and Cee-Lo Green.
Because it’s the last Halfway Crooks at Goodgod for 2015, they’re taking over the whole venue and assembelled an extra special #squad of legendary DJ mates to make this one hell of a party.
