Tom Fisher and The Layabouts play RTRFM's Harbour Sundays (17 February).
2019 has kicked off with music, events and people around Perth.
Commencing last Sunday (3 February), RTRFM’s Harbour Sundays series showcases live, local music at Fremantle’s WA Maritime Museum. The series continues the next three Sundays (10, 17, 24 February). Each week you’ll be treated to a selection of live music acts from around Perth.
In week 2, enjoy a night of sweet tunes from Perth singer-songwriter Grace Armstrong and the majestic harmonies of Simone & Girlfunkle.
Join us for week 3 to catch the drawling sounds of Tom Fisher and The Layabouts and some big-band magic of Fremantle troubadours, Salary.
Finally, to round it all out on 24 February we are joined by the funky and rootsy Dilip n The Davs before the soul wonder that is Odette Mercy plays in trio form.
Plus, each week, stick around to catch an RTRFM DJ spinning tracks on the night, including Rockin’ The Roots’ DJ, Rhian Todhunter, DJ Harvey Rae from Thursday’s Drivetime and DJ Marnie Richardson from Drastic on Plastic.
We’ve also teamed up with Gage Roads Brewing Co. so you can enjoy a beer or cider while sitting back by the Indian Ocean at the best spot in Perth to watch the sunset.
We are also pleased to announce that Neon Picnic will be returning in 2019 at Hyde Park on 23 March. Get your picnic rug out and come and join us in the park for a day of free, live music for the whole family... dogs included.
Before you come to Harbour Sunday 2019, have a listen to this selection of our favourite tracks from some artists that are playing at the series.
Salary – 'Polite Rebellion'
Fremantle band Salary have just released their first single after the release of their 2017 debut record. Their new single, 'Polite Rebellion', is part of this week's RTRFM Sound Selection and showcases their full, rich and warm, melancholic sound.
Grace Armstrong – 'Bleeding Out'
Grace’s folky, melancholic sound is dreamy, dreamy, dreamy! Her voice is pure and so smooth. Soft drums and synths lift the song from a quiet, acoustic track to a full-bodied sound that will capture your heart at Harbour Sundays 2019.
Simone & Girlfunkle – 'Gary Song'
‘Simone & Girlfunkle’s happy track, 'Gary Song' is filled with uplifting synths, catchy guitar riffs and melodies that are velvety and full of harmonies. You can catch Simone & Girlfunkle’s magic at RTRFM’s Harbour Sundays 10 February.
Dom Mariani & The Majestic Kelp – ‘The Golden Ones’
This surf-rock blues soundscape is summer in a can, filled with smooth guitars and slow-kicking drums.
Fuzz Toads – 'Ovals'
Distorted guitars over a shaking bass, smooth vocals ride over the top to bring the roof down on this track, released in May 2018. 'Ovals' creates a defining sound for the band and you can catch these guys at Harbour Sundays.
