Five gigs to get to this weekend in Perth
Jimmy’s Den, Saturday 3 September
Fresh from a recording stint in Sydney, Lilt will be showcasing a bunch of new tracks – primarily their new single Wait No More – this weekend with a headlining show at Jimmy’s Den on Saturday from 8pm.
Wait No More emphasises the three-piece’s intensity, particularly in the case of Louise Penman’s powerful vocal delivery.
Pre-sale tickets are sold out, but there will be some on the door, so get down there early.
Check out the music clip for Wait No More below.
Rosemount Hotel, Saturday 3 September
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Big Splash band competition was established in 2013 and has helped a number of promising local acts get off the ground.
This year, 32 bands have played across eight heats, with one winner from each heat making it through to the semi-finals, and now, four bands are left to compete for the grand final prize of $10,000.
The final showdown takes place this Saturday night at The Rosemount Hotel from 8pm and features garage/psych rockers Moistoyster, smooth-grooving up-and-comers Moon Puppy Blues Band, the explosive hip hop/jazz infusion POW! Negro and cruisy pop-rockers Segue Safari.
Tickets are $20 on the door.
Amplifier Bar, Saturday 3 September
After two full-length albums and a handful of EPs, Brisbane’s The John Steel Singers have decided to go on an indefinite hiatus.
Before that though, they’ve been treating fans around the country with a slew of performances with new EP Midnight At The Plutonium in tow, and they finish up the tour in Perth with a huge show at Amplifier Bar this Saturday night.
Tickets can be purchased here.
Check out Weekend Lover, the first single from Midnight At The Plutonium below.
Settlers Tavern, Friday 2 September; Capitol, Saturday 3 September; Newport Hotel, Sunday 4 September
Over the last decade, Brisbane’s Dead Letter Circus have forged a reputation as being one of the biggest names in Australian progressive-rock.
