WHERE: The Bird, Northbridge
Occasionally Perth bands go to Melbourne, never to return. For a Thursday night down in Northbridge it was a treat to see, now ex-Perth band, The Bluejays tear the roof off The Bird.
The WAMi Festival is on again and there is, as usual, heaps to do, see and of course hear. We’re going to be filming at a few events and expect some tweets form round the place too, there’s way too much stuff for us to be able to be at everything so if you see something cool let us know!
Kid Koala proudly presents The Slew Live. Six turntables plus Chris and Myles from Wolfmother on bass and drums. It’s rock turntablism like you’ve never seen it before.
It all started nearly five years ago when Kid Koala and Dynomite D were working together to create a soundtrack for a documentary, the pair were pushing into psych rock territory and and had Mario Caldato (Beastie Boys Producer) on board for the mix. By the time the documentary folded the pair were in too deep to let go so they teamed up with Chris Ross and Myles Heskett – the former rhythm section of Wolfmother – to form The Slew. This monster unit set out to put together a full-blown rock band experience to do justice to the material in a live setting.
Last October they dragged a wall of amps, six turntables, bass, drums and keyboards across America damaging the consciousnesses of rock heads and turntablists alike and now they’re heading to The Rosemount Hotel in North Perth to give you the same treatment.
The Slew bring attitude back to the turntable unlike anything you’ve ever heard. Check out the video at the bottom of this post for a taste. you can also click through to buy a ticket for the event for only $30.
