A brief glimpse at the goings-on in the WA music industry, rounded up by WAM aka West Australian Music.
JOIN THE NEW NOISE COLLECTIVE
New Noise Collective is a young community group brought together by WAM to strengthen WA’s all-ages music scene.
A NOISY LIBRARY SESSIONS
New Noise Collective presents the Library Sessions; a series of free, all-ages gigs at the State Library of Western Australia. The Library Sessions close out with one last show on Saturday 29 June (3:30-5pm), with another knockout hip hop show featuring local rap legend Mathas and in-demand new comer MALi JO$E.
WAM MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: DEATH BY DENIM
Coastal rockers and WAM members, Death By Denim have announced their third national tour in support of a yet-to-be-released brand-new single ‘Plane From Amsterdam’. Kicking off 15 June with a home-town show, the tour will see the band return to the east coast in June-July for headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and, for the first time, Brisbane.
Hailing from Perth’s coastal suburbia, DBD arrived on the scene in 2016 after earning a coveted spot at Southbound Music Festival. They had a big start to 2019 with a Triple J premiere of recent release ‘Cigarettes And Honey’. The band is showing no signs of slowing down as they move towards the release of their sophomore EP later in the year.
