Thanks to all enjoyed our first series of winter events at Caspa Gallery in Castlemaine. I look forward to posting more events - soon.
A Homeless Cinema audio visual event which celebrates the energy, the enthusiasm and the innocence of the first decade of Teen. Combining music from 56 - 66 with images, films and props from the time.

This page hopes to give some idea of what Life is like at Heatwave.
As the music plays the images fly around you. The beat pounds and the light flickers, the temperature increases, the sweat drips and the smile starts to spread form one ear to another.
Start at the top and press play on each clip, as you move down the page, feel free to dance or tap your toe.
The music will be mostly northern soul with a few detours in to the nascent musical movements of the time: Mod, R&B, surf and pop.
Each event will include a short segment about issues relevant to the time. In the information age - Go Go is an information raising, fund raising, Discotheque that sweats for change and pure fucking joy.
We hope it will give you an idea of what an hour or so will be like at Homeless Cinema's 'Heatwave.
It is ALSO a resource for music and style from the first decade of teen, roughly '56 to '66. Whatever we hope you enjoy!
