Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: War on Trauma

In the War on Trauma we care for hurt people.

It just amplifies the trauma. And amplified trauma leads to drug harm.

Bearfoot at the Hotel Brunswick. Sunday at 4pm with support, Ole Falco.

Bearfoot is a powerhouse sextet that knows how to dig in and get a crowd bouncing, then brings them back down for some chilled dub-fused island grooves with a blend of social, hip hop and dub reggae, and a dash of the Endless Summer soundtrack thrown in. This show will be a sweat-drenched, high-energy sharing performance with catchy melodies over deep grooves – that’s their speciality. 

The crew mix sweet harmonies to support Asher Chapman’s passionate rapid-fire vocals. With dubby guitars, bright horn lines that just won’t quit, bubbling keys and a solid rhythm section full of fat bass and steadfast drums with percussive flare – Bearfoot has a take on Australian roots/reggae music that is completely their own.

Their Hotel Brunswick show begins on Sunday at 4pm with support, Ole Falco.
