Back To Live
As we’ve been touting for a few months now, Red Parrot Reunion is coming back for another year to remind Perth of one of its great music venues.
The DJ line-up has been revealed and now it’s time to unveil the live component, with The Waltons, The Diddywah Hoodaddys, Love Pump, Holy Rollers, Greenhouse Effect, The Jackals and the James Baker Experience (featuring Rod Radalj) all primed to roll. Renowned Perth singer/guitarist, Greg Dear, has curated the line-up.
“It has been a great privilege to have the job of chasing up the live acts to play at this reunion gig,” he says. “Most of these bands haven’t played together for many years and are getting together just for this event.
“My own band, the Holy Rollers, who played numerous gigs at the Parrot, will be among the many taking to the stage for the first time in many years. The Parrot was always my favourite venue to play because I loved the huge stage area that gave us plenty of room to move around, and the crowd was always great! Also important is the fact that it didn’t close as soon as we finished – bands would finish around 1am or so and the DJs would keep going until 3 or 6am.”
Last year’s event sold out, make plans now to head to the Astor Theatre next Saturday, June 14. Tickets available through Showticketing.com.au or at the door.
