An entertaining prelude to your weekend and all FREE, every Friday evening (except 29 Nov which is a Thu replacing Fri 30) from 6-9pmFed Square Live will be churning out some of Melbourne and Australia's finest musical acts on stage. There's something for everyone in this free series of concerts that range from dream-pop and soul to big band and rock 'n' roll. An all-ages event, each week there'll be food trucks, bean bags and astroturf, just so you can kick back and let the good times roll!
Kicking it off on the first night are Roger Knox, a Murri Man who this year was inducted into the National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs) Hall of Fame. He'll be joined by indie folk troubadour Fraser A Gorman and Melbourne's favourite Americana songstress, Madeline Leman and The Desert Swells. With a love for country, blues and folk, listen to Gorman's sun-drenched tones and lyrical wit, while Madeline Leman and The Desert Swells take you on a trip through 60s surf, 70s pop and their unique brand of Femmericana twang.
With lots of fantastic and amazing performances in between, the series concludes with power pop-house Juliette Seizure & The Tremor Dolls, Loose Tooth and 60's surf rock infused Baby Blue. JS & the Tremor Dolls set out to be a blend of first wave punk and 60s girl-groups with a healthy dose of powerpop and punk. Swept together from the ashes of your finest night on the tiles Loose Tooth are a Melbourne three-piece who craft sweet guitar pop with frayed edges and swollen hearts. Baby Blue will be tapping into sounds of 60s surf rock with a sprinkling of Americana and Indie pop. Check the Facebook page which also has details of individual events.
