Groundswell Feat. Bob Evans + The Money War

Sonar Room and Little Creatures are proud to announce Groundswell, a fundraising event in aid of Support Act and St. Patricks Community Centre Fremantle.

Community and bringing people together is at the heart of Little Creatures. The recent launch of Sonar Room has helped do that through live music and performance art. Groundswell is a fundraising event in aid of Support Act and St. Pats which will bring homegrown acts Bob Evans and The Money War together for a charity gig and celebration of live music in the Sonar Room.

One hundred percent of ticket proceeds are going to St. Pats Community Support Centre and Support Act.

St. Pats has worked since 1972 to support the homeless or those at risk of homelessness in the wider Fremantle community. Support Act was founded in 1997 and assists artists and music workers who are facing hardship due to illness, injury or another crisis that impacts their lives.

ARIA Award winner and Western Australian songsmith Bob Evans, will headline the event with this his only Perth show. Under the alias of Bob Evans, (Kevin Mitchell from Jebediah) has released five albums, all of which showcase the versatility and skill of this talented and acclaimed singer songwriter. Gentle, acoustic melodies prevail, enveloping the classic folk storytelling and strong emotional pull that characterises his substantial body of work. Currently on tour celebrating the release of his best of album “Full Circle”, Bob Evans brings his much-loved contemporary touch to Sonar Room in support of Groundswell.

Joining Bob Evans will be Fremantle’s very own The Money War, back in Australia after an overseas stint in New York and for the release of their debut album on March 1st.

"LOVE IS HEARTBREAK TOUR"
Sunday Apr 21 2019 - Sonar Room - Fremantle, WA

Landing less than a year after their debut album 'Electric Brown', 'Love is Heartbreak' is the first track from the forthcoming sophomore LP 'New Romancer' by magnificent Melbourne shapeshifters Cousin Tony's Brand New Firebird
Recorded between LA and Melbourne 'Love is Heartbreak' is an ambitious and kaleidoscopic piece of indie-pop which perfectly sets the scene for the new record's thematic journey from heartbreak to recovery.

With millions of streams already behind them, 4-5 star Unearthed reviews from the folks at triple j; and Matt Corby, Montaigne and Gang of Youths' Dave Le'aupepe having all previously sung their praises, it looks like 2019 could well be the year that the 'bird truly soars!

Mia Dyson with Special Guests

LA-based award-winning Australian singer-songwriter Mia Dyson will return to Australia this March for a special run of headline dates.

 Mia will kick off the tour with a hometown show accompanied by her full band at Howler, Melbourne, followed by dates in regional Victoria and wrap up her string of shows with her first performance in Western Australia in over three years. 

 Since self-releasing her debut album at age 22, Australian singer/songwriter Mia Dyson has instilled her music with raw passion and timeless vitality, along with the sharp musicianship she’s shown in opening for the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks, and Eric Clapton. 

 In creating her sixth highly acclaimed album If I Said Only So Far I Take It Back, the L.A.-based artist deepened the connection to her musical roots by recording at Portside Sound: a studio in the same Muscle Shoals building where legendary records by the Bob Dylan and Joe Cocker came to life.

 

IF I SAID ONLY SO FAR I TAKE IT BACK AVAILABLE HERE
