Tickets $8.00 + bf. Doors 8PM.
Tom West's music traverses the rocky and undulating ground between simple, whimsical folk tunes and grand and moody soundscapes. It's been nearly 12 months since we heard from the Adelaide songwriter while re-wrote and re-recorded songs that have been in progress since 2016. It's been worth the wait.
New single "Got It Cheap" was premiered with Zan Rowe on Double J, and sees the songwriter venture to Melbourne for his first show since 2017. The track is drawn from West's upcoming album that was composed over a two-year period during which time he was influenced strongly by the sudden and traumatic death of his father & mentor. A reflection on the disposability of the routines modern life imagined during dream-like walks through the Australian suburbia. Open tuned banjo plays off against West's old Stratocaster before the song collapses into riffs and swells into unexpected changes.
Born and bred in the historic gold-mining town of Beechworth in North-east Victoria, Liv Cartledge is a rare find. Liv's husky tones, soul-filled lyrics and warm melodies will draw you in and leave you wondering how you got there. Since taking out the coveted 2015 Telstra Road To Discovery competition, 2017 saw Liv release the 'TIMBER' EP, play to sold out venues in Melbourne, and tour throughout VIC, NSW and SA. "Love the voice, those guitar melodies and the sense of intimacy." - Dom Alessio
