The event will also feature interviews with Bird’s Robe artists past and present as well as other entertainment interspersed throughout the show, giveaways for fans & a live chat with artists throughout the show.
It will be available for free and streamed at www.twitch.tv/birdsrobe on Saturday October 9th at 6pm Sydney / 8am GMT with a repeat session at 6pm GMT / 1pm NY / 10am LA time.

Director Mike Solo says:
On Saturday 5 December in 2015, a bunch of bands playing post-rock, prog, metal and alternative rock got together at Manning Bar in Sydney, Australia to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Bird’s Robe Records
It was awesome
Thanks to the work of clipped.tv and Log Cabin Productions, we’re now able to relive that one glorious day of prog, post-rock and popcorn, which has lived so fondly in our memories over all these years
And for all the friends and fans who’ve joined us since then, who never had the opportunity to see some of these wonderful bands play live, or with this era of their lineup, or these particular songs, this is our gift to you as well
It’s 5+ hours of a high quality bootleg of our very own festival, put together in our typical DIY fashion, with plenty of prog, post-rock and popcorn
Bird’s Robe is home to some of Australia’s brightest post-rock and prog exports, including sleepmakeswaves, We Lost The Sea, Closure in Moscow, Toehider, Meniscus, The Red Paintings, The Crooked Fiddle Band, Troldhaugen, Solkyri & more.
Earlier this year, the label announced plans for a documentary celebrating its 10th anniversary.
