Live Music Roundup – Thursday 29, 2015


Sunday to Sunday

Jimmy Vann, Lachlan Jones and Tom Switlek are The Vanns – they have just released their new single Sunday To Sunday. Recorded and produced by Nathan Sheehy this single has all the catchy pop rock elements of a classic Vanns tune, a jump up and down, shout out loud, sing it to your mates killer.

Hailing from the New South Wales town of Kiama, The Vanns deliver an infectious salty mash of earthy pop and indie rock.

The Sunday To Sunday tour will take in over 25 shows and span from the Sunshine Coast of Queensland to Perth in WA, including Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and NSW.

Come and say g’day to the boys this Friday at the Hotel Great Northern.


For what it’s worth

Southern California Rock and Soul favourites Allensworth return to Byron Bay this spring as part of the Mullum Festival lineup and to promote a new EP titled Slow Fade. Byron Bay has become a second home to the band’s frontman/songwriter Jamie Allensworth and percussionist/vocalist Tony Mash since their first Australian tour in 2010. For the few that haven’t heard of Allensworth it’s all about FeelGood music, soulful grooves and infectious tunes.

Catch Allensworth as a 5-piece this weekend – Thursday, 7pm at the Byron Bay Treehouse and Sunday, 4pm at the Beach Hotel.


Calling all Red Tribes

A Tribe Called Red will be heading to Australia to perform for the first time an extensive run of shows throughout the east coast including headline dates as well as Australian Music Week, The Sydney Opera House’s Homeground.

A Tribe Called Red aims to challenge stereotypes about indigenous people by using video segments taken from pop culture (movies, cartoons) in order to poke fun of the racist imagery.

They not only mix tradition with contemporary art via music and video, but also their dancer who mixes b-boy style with traditional hoop dancing.

Famous for their experimental blend of instrumental hip-hop, reggae, electronic music and elements of First Nations traditional drumming and chanting, A Tribe Called Red are producing a truly unique sound that’s impacting the global electronic scene and urban club culture.

NORPA presents A Tribe Called Red on Saturday November 28 at Lismore City Hall.
