Electronic three-piece, Crooked Colours are prepping for a trip to Rottnest Island this Sunday (17 January) as part of Coopers Live, Loud & Local gig series.
Melanie Cooper, Coopers Brewery Director and fifth generation family member, says the brewery wanted to build on the momentum generated by its initial Live, Loud and Local series – which became Australia's biggest virtual pub experience during the national lockdown.
"Our first series was all about bringing the pub experience into Australian lounge rooms so patrons stuck at home could still enjoy a night out on the couch," Mel says.
"Now we want to help bring great Australian live music back to the stage and encourage people off the couch and into their local pub.
"It's been a really challenging time for venues, musicians and patrons. Live music is an essential part of our culture as is heading to the local for a social drink with friends. It's something we've all missed.
"We're putting together a great series of gigs that will allow fans the chance to see their favourite bands perform live again and support local venues in a socially responsible way."
When it comes to enjoying a meal with their Coopers, each member of Crooked Colours has a different response. "I always accompany my Coopers Pale Ale with 30 oysters (delicious)," Leon admits, while Liam has simpler tastes: "Pacific Pale Ale goes well with Bao Bun in hand." What a pairing?!
Though we reckon Phil had the best response: "A six pack of Pale Ale goes down well with my best mate."Tickets are still available
to hang with Crooked Colours at Hotel Rottnest (WA) this Sunday 17 January (2pm).
Other Coopers Live, Loud & Local shows include The Rubens at Selina's Coogee Bay Hotel (Sydney) 3 February and Bad//Dreems at The Bridgeway Hotel (Adelaide) 19 February, with more shows to be announced.
