Don't miss Vol. 2 Sounds of Our Towns - Mountain GetDown
Sin Cartera, Cammy Cautious and the Wrestlers, and K Town Funky Horns with special guests - local rappers Bluetongue, Skript and Glenview Collective - performed to an enthusiastic crowd that were obviously pleased to get their dancing shoes back on.
"Seeing local musicians connect with local audiences at the Blue Mountains Theatre was a real highlight after all the disruptions and missed opportunities brought by COVID," Blue Mountains City Council Cultural Development Coordinator Katrina Noorbergen said.
"The quality of the production at the Hub is world-class so it's great to be able to see a venue of this standard being rocked by emerging talent from our region."
The Sounds of our Towns - Mountains Get Down evolved from Sounds of Our Towns - a curated playlist platform - to live event presentation in a professional venue and is curated by the Sounds of Our Towns creator Willem Hendriksen.
"Sounds of our Towns - Mountains GetDown is putting 'community' in the Blue Mountains Theatre & Community Hub," Retro Rehash's Willem Hendriksen said.
Sounds of our Towns emerged last September as a new cultural innovation aiming to reduce feelings of community disconnection during lockdown, by sharing and promoting local music playlists. The playlists were promoted on iconic posters around the mountains and accessed by QR code.
"This is a great program, allowing up-and-coming Blue Mountains Bands to access professional performance opportunities," Willem said.
Tickets for Vol.2 Sounds of our Towns - Mountains GetDown on Friday April 29 featuring Trash Baby, PYLOTS EYE and Large Mirage are $20/$25 and can be purchased from here. Doors open 7pm for a 7:30 start.
