The 28th of March marked the first show Cursing Stone had ever booked independently. There are many reasons we decided to book our own show, but mostly we just wanted to test the waters and not settle for whatever shows we could find through booking agents and promoters.

The Valve Bar do an amazing job making their venue available for live music with a minimum of fuss, something that is incredibly lacking in Sydney of late. We put on another four like minded bands and the rest is history. The show was fantastically successful, with each band really shining in their own style.

Like all independent, original shows, it was a challenge, but if anything, this show was living proof that you can put on a show in this city and have wonderful people show up and enjoy the musical art that this town has to offer.
