Sunshine Coast Music News, July 21 2017
Damn it's cold. Warm up with some epic live music this weekend though. Tonight, Highlife bring the afrobeat/psych to Solbar, with Bassadi Kone supporting. In the front lounge, Richie Langford will be doing his thing. In Nambour town, reggae grooves will be flowing in The Basement with Jesse Morris & Rob DeMasi.
Brisbane's Calais will be playing Solbar on Saturday night, with Dosed supporting, and Parker St Dub Club in the front lounge.
Whiskey & Me will be launching their EP at the Imperial Hotel in Eumundi on Saturday night, with Bub-kiss and Rohan Nitschke supporting.
Then a massive show on Sunday night with Frenzal Rhomb, Totally Unicorn, and Something Something Explosion in the backroom at Solbar ($35 on the door). Mufassa will be at Alex Surf Club for a Sunday Sesh.
In the coming week, we'll be visited by The Screaming Jets (The V Room), and Dallas Frasca (Imperial Hotel Eumundi, with Hobo Magic, and Los Laws).
Speaking of Dallas Frasca, we managed to tee up a Q & A with Dallas & Jeff, which you can read here.
Big ups to the boys in New Clear Vision who shot up into the metal charts of Triple J Unearthed in the first week of releasing the new single, 'No More Screams' - if you haven't heard that one, click here.
The Floating Bridges have been getting some J love as well, with 'The Power' receiving some airplay the past two Mondays.
(Relative) newcomer, Jamison Kehl's doing well for herself, too, with 'The Meadow' hitting #10 in the Roots charts. You can here this indie/roots track, in its live form, here.
The guys in Bearfoot have been promising a new single, which we believe should be out in the next week (hell, their tour starts in 2 weeks), but in the meantime, they have snuck out a 'behind the scenes' (really, it's just a montage) in the studio, which you can watch here.
Dub/electro legends, Dubarray announced yet another European tour this week as well, which sees them cover four countries in just over two weeks. Insane.
And finally... don't forget to get your Live Performance Reports in to APRA by July 31 (the sooner you get to it, the less you'll be stressed and rushed) - collate all of your shows in the last financial year (including set lists, venues - including the street name), and upload them ASAP... or you'll miss out.
