15 Peel St, Adelaide
No one throws house parties anymore. I don’t want to have to dress up to get a beer and a mac. And I don’t want to pay for that privilege either. Format is the next best thing to watching Rage on a Saturday night with couple of Asahi’s. The two level venue on Peel St is one of Adelaide’s hidden treasures. It’s all cheap bevvies, good music and uncomfortable chairs.
The venue not only hosts gigs, it also functions as a zine shop and gallery. The collective behind the venue is also responsible for the the annual Format Festival. This includes visual art exhibitions, literature workshops and the Adelaide Zine and DIY Fair.
Look out for the Peel Street Moving Image Project this August. Format will be moving it’s festivities to the street, featuring couches, projections, gourmet burgers, beer, handball and most importantly, YOU.
