One of our favourite venues in Darlo Lo-fi Collective has announced that the venue will be under construction in the lead up to accommodate the introduction of live music (YAY!) But don’t worry kids, it will still be pumping for the next 7 weeks with some awesome shows leading up to the new space. They will still incorporate the visual arts in future, however their shows will not be as frequent as they are now. So get to it people and indulge in some awesome arty shit.
