Spacey Jane continue their white-hot recent form, with the Fremantle band scooping up four awards at the recent 2020 WAMAwards ceremony (23 March), staged at Perth's historic His Majesty's Theatre.
With 22 of their 25 shows on their upcoming national tour sold out, not to mention their #2 placing on the Hottest 100 for 'Booster Seat', there's no denying Spacey Jane are the 'it band' of Australian music right now.
They scooped up awards for Best Pop Act, Most Popular Act, and Best Single (for, you guessed it, 'Booster Seat') as well as tying for Best Album with Tame Impala.
Another multi-award winner was Afro, roots, pop, funk artist Grace Barbé, who walked away with three gongs: Best Global Music Act, Best Vocalist and Best Bassist.
A massive shoot-out to Mojos Bar, with the Fremantle live music venue winning Most Popular Venue for a staggering seventh year running.
Other major winners were Noah Dillon (Best EP for 'Everything Melts'), Psychedelic Porn Crumpets (Best Music Video for 'Mr Prism') and Blue Grey Pink who won the Label Of The Year award.
The 2020 Golden WAMi was awarded to RTRFM's Will Backler of RTRFM, whose contributions as Music & Program Director, Interviews Coordinator and Head of Training provide countless opportunities for WA artists and industry, while championing the broad diversity of talent WA has to offer.
The night also paid tribute in honouring two Hall of Fame inductees, the late Paul McCarthy and Fitzroy XPress. Members of McCarthy's last band Circus performed in tribute to the legendary singer-songwriter, while Fitzroy Xpress also took to the stage in celebration of their achievement.
Keeping the energy up throughout the night were stellar live performances from winners Adrian Dzvuke, Bexx, MissGenius, Noah Dillon, Tanya Ransom and nominees Nika Mo and Alter Boy.
Topping the evening off with a bang was a special full-band performance – their first in 12 months – from multi-WAMAward winning Tame Impala, leaving the audience ecstatic at the rare opportunity to witness the international music phenomenon in a theatre setting.
