Day 2 of the King Street Carnival and the rain has stayed away, leaving King street awash with hordes of live music loving revellers, roaming from venue to venue.
I had another little run around south King street to soak up the sounds
The Causeway – Moshpit
Fresh faced Sydneysiders, The Causeway mount the Moshpit carpets along with their weird little mascot Peplum and send out some sweet, bouncy, indie-pop numbers to brighten up the afternoon.
Have a listen to their new single OK here.
Salarymen – Union Hotel
A quick dash up the road to the quickly filling Union Hotel to catch Salarymen (not celerymen), play us a set of sixties influenced indie pop songs that got the pub bouncing.
Have a taste of those bouncy numbers, here.
Jess Finlayson – Moshpit
Back down the road (wearing a little rut along King street) to the Moshpit to catch Jess Finlayson of Raising Ravens slay a solo performance tonight, cranking out a huge rock sound with plenty of volume for one guitar and amp.
Check out her EP In My Room, here.
Babitha – Union Hotel
And back up the road again to the Union Hotel and jostle in to see Babitha for some sultry country sounds. Tonight she managed to fill up the stage with her band, as well as the venue with the crowd absolutely going off to a cover of ABBA’s SOS to close her set.
Sample some of her sultry sounds, here.
Andy Golledge Band – Union Hotel
By the time surprise mystery band Andy Golledge Band got to mass onto the stage, the Union had a queue of punters extending up the street, waiting to get in. The band was in fine form laying down some rollicking alt country sounds. There was much boot stamping and jigging all through the room.
Check out his energy here.
