Welcome to Live By The Bay, a beachside concert celebrating music, food and good company. Taking place over the Labour Day long weekend, we invite people locally and from afar to enjoy the picturesque venue of Koombana Bay.
Dance with the sand between your toes or pull up a picnic rug and take in the sunset while listening to some of Australia’s great musical talent.
Dope Lemon is the new musical project of Australian singer/songwriter Angus Stone known to international audiences as half of the sibling indie pop duo Angus & Julia Stone. Featuring a more electric, '90s slacker rock sound than prior projects, Dope Lemon's first album grew out of writing at home on his farm and jamming with friends in his recording studio on the property. Prior collaborators Rohin Brown (the Walking Who) and Elliott Hammond (the Delta Riggs) are among those to appear on the finished debut, Honey Bones, which arrived on Universal in the autumn of 2016. The making of ‘Honey Bones’ became the ultimate reflection of Angus’s existence, a world where reality and fantasy, creativity and practicality flow together unobstructed, to form things tangible but that feel like a dream.
THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS
Periscopes, LaMar, Blackbird and I Thought About You, amazing performances all over the planet, the voice of Mat McHugh, heart-on-the-sleeve songs, pioneering Australia’s surf-roots-reggae sounds – these are things fans worldwide think of when they think of The Beautiful Girls.
The Beautiful Girls kicked it all off in 2002 with the debut EP, Morning Sun. The track Periscopes became a certified Triple J radio hit that summer and the Goodtimes EP, followed that same year. In 2003, The Beautiful Girls released their debut album, Learn Yourself followed by another EP, The Weight Of The World in 2004. Three more albums succeed, We’re Already Gone (2005), Water (2006) and Ziggurats (2007). Ziggurats’ main single, I Thought About You, was nominated for Blues & Roots Work of the Year at the 2008 APRA Awards. The album Spooks released in 2010, peaked at number 18 on the ARIA charts, debuted at number 1 in the Australian Independent Chart and number 7 in the US Billboard Reggae Albums Chart. Spooks, which Mat recorded with longtime co-producer Ian Pritchett, was described as ‘a majestic production where stylistic threads run deep’ which showcased Mat’s ever-solid song writing and his skill as a player of many instruments and producer. In the eight years to 2010, McHugh and the collective that comprised the live version of The Beautiful Girls, chalked up a dozen world tours, travelling to Japan, Europe, Canada, the United States and South America. Fans of Mat’s music span the globe.
The new album Dancehall Days was released on McHugh’s Separatista label in October 2014 followed by a highly attended national tour of selected festivals and venues. The fans danced and sang along to, as one reviewer put it ‘a combination of pulsing rhythm, emotive vocals and philosophical lyrics, they really couldn’t go wrong. Along with their magnetic performance, these guys killed the crowd with dancing”.
Plus support from some of WA's best talent.
