21 Jun Ripe Presents: Summer Flake w/ Good Morning, Hollow Everdaze & DIET, Live at The Gasometer Hotel (10/6/16)
After a bit of a break from the live scene, we decided to get together with some of our favourite Melbourne acts at the Gasometer Hotel to share an evening of music with you all. We’re chuffed to have been able to curate a night of such great melodic guitar music that truly showcased the strength of Melbourne’s up-and-coming talent, and we hope to share more amazing Australian talent with you all in future shows down the track.
The first band to grace the stage was five-piece surf outfit DIET. who have impressed us right off the bat with their releases like ‘Your House’ and more recently ‘Life Limbo’, a new single to be included on their forthcoming EP release.
Our third act for the evening Good Morning have had a massive year. Their Glory EP, released in February via Solitaire, demonstrated innate songwriting ability – melding lo-fi style with genuine musicianship. Lead single ‘Cab Deg’ drilled into our brains, and we’ve been hooked ever since.
Our headliner Summer Flake is the harmony-laden project from mastermind Stephanie Crase. Her sound is a glorious melange of genres and styles, equal parts Sonic Youth and Mac DeMarco, Hole and Karen Dalton. Crase, along with band members Antony Bourmas and Joel Cary, having just released the wonderful LP ‘Hello Friends’, were a joy to watch on stage as they brought our evening of wonderful Melbourne talent to an end.
