WORDS BY TARA CAMPBELL
After the fall of Live Music in 2020, many companies have banded together to bring back the sounds of music into pubs all around Australia. Coopers Brewery and Live Nation have teamed up to bring ‘Live, Loud and Local’, a series of gigs across Perth, Sydney and Adelaide, supporting Australia’s hospitality and entertainment industries, as well as the local communities hit hard by COVID-19 and related social gathering restrictions.
Thanks to the success of Coopers Brewery’s first livestream events, they’re back again with another brilliant program.
Melanie Cooper, Coopers Brewery Director spoke, “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 said.
“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.”
Kicking it off is Crooked Colours, a Perth-based Alternative Dance Group who have secured quite a name for themselves with over 50 million streams across their tracks. The group will be playing the first show of ‘Live, Loud and Local’ on the 17th of January at Hotel Rottnest in Perth.
