THE FINAL EVER FRIGID
It is the final ever Frigid. And we're going out with a huge bang.
We've reached ten years and there's no better time to close down. Why? I hear you cry. Well, if we don't stop at ten then we'd not feel complete until fifteen and none of us can even imagine another five years of giving up our Sunday nights. Ha!
We'd like to extend an enormous thank you to everyone who has ever played at or attended Frigid. Its been a wild ride and we've all had lots of fun, and looking back there's nothing we would have done differently.
Hopefully our paths will cross again.
You can rest assured that even though Frigid is ending as a weekly night, that the idea behind Frigid will live on.
With the time freed up by Frigid ending you can be confident that new schemes, new plans and new concoctions will be dreamt up and turned into action. We may collaborate with new crews of people, and Cyclic Defrost, our magazine will live on. Heck, you might even find us putting on another Cryogenesis - a ten year reunion one - in 2007. Now that would be something. No promises though.
Frigid is one of Sydney's longest running electronic music nights. Started in 1996 it has been a weekly fixture across several venues over the years. A potted early history can be read in Cyclic Defrost.
Frigid has witnessed many live performances from local and international acts. Some of the highlights include Squarepusher, Funckarma, Kevin Blechdom, Jan Jelinek, Andrew Pekler, Hrvatski, Burnt Friedman, Manitoba, Luke Vibert, Pan American, Cylob, Boom Bip, Anticon, dj/Rupture, DJ Olive, Mitchell Akiyama, Lotek HiFi, Com.A, Tim Love Lee, Richard Devine, Pita, Monolake, and Baby Ford.
THANKS TO OUR SUPPORTERS!

Another super brief history -
We started Frigid as a short term way of raising some money to put on another Cryogenesis event way back in mid 1996. It was supposed to last a month or so. Then Kinselas (our first venue) asked us to stay. We stuck around until December 1996 at which point we got a call from the Dendy who wanted something interesting for their Martin Place bar that was vaguely intelligent and interesting. We stayed at the Dendy through 1997 and 1998 basically transforming the place into a venue that then got trashed by house parties. During that time we did some great film nights and some legendary one off events. We moved on to the Globe in Newtown (now a pizza shop) where we had some great times, merging electronics with live acts more and putting on some of the seminal Elefant Traks nights. After the Globe we went to the Hopetoun where things becmae even more 'live-oriented' before finally being poached by the @Newtown RSL which we've called home from 2005.
