Scrap Christmas! Merivale’s ‘Sunday Sundown’ Is All You Need This Summer
Everyone’s dreaming of a white Christmas, whether it’s with a traditional fresh blanket of snow, or sipping coconuts on the beach to Mariah Carey’s hit single.
The holiday season is a time of unwinding, travel and relaxing to welcome in a new year, but for those of you that can’t quite escape Sydney, we have the answer for you:
Merivale and Summer Bright Lager welcomes back another year of it’s incredibly dynamic and successful summer season.
With sixteen free live music events occurring over the summer, the dusk shows will showcase thirty-two Australian acts on the sun-soaked rooftop of Coogee Pavillion and The Newport from the 27th of November to 26th of February.
Aya Larkin of 90s funk rock band Skunkhour return to the stage for Sunday Sundown, stating,
“It’s a great day to see live music is still alive and running. Playing for crowds and rocking out is what this country loves and we’re keen to bring back the vintage classics.”
Crossing all genres of music, Eugene, the musician and producer behind his alter-Grime artist ego Dro Carey also highlights the season will allow Australian artists to showcase their talent to a diverse audience.
As a popular form of underground British hip-hop/rap, Grime has yet to fully surface on Australian shores, “we’ve got the audience and the crowd for it, so I can see a set at Sunday Sundown really encouraging people to support the up and coming Australia grime artists” comments Eugene.
“Plus playing heavy grime beats while the sun goes down across Coogee beach is going to create one incredible atmosphere” he adds.
Resident beach lovers and party boys from Melbourne, Harvey and Monte from Client Liaison will also perform their latest 90s revival dance-pop album, “Diplomatic Immunity”.
Dressed in their favourite “coral” and “reef” shades, in between dropping a new album, clothing line and developing their latest venture – vintage limousine services – the dynamic duo enthuse about the chance to “wear ridiculous clothes, perform funky music and dance and drink the night away”.
In addition, popular artists from the synth dance beats of BASENJI, PNAU and Yolanda Be Cool, to the indie rock of Ngaiire, Sons of the East and Jarryd James will feature in a stellar seasonal line up.
With a desire to make live music synonymous with beaches and bikini’s in Sydney’s summer, genres from across the board will feature, satisfying every taste and tone.
Panoramic views at both locations and brilliant live music acts are just a few of the reasons to head down to Sunday Sundown at Merivale’s venues.
