As part of WA/foundation day/WAMI the state government are hosting the State of the Art festival. All Western Australian acts and it’s a seriously great line up for just $20. 11 hours of music. See you there!

Here’s my list of bands, an example of their songs in YouTube and my snippet reviews.
Riverside Outdoor Stage
St Georges Terrace Outdoor Stage
Wise Up – Love this song. Ruby has been getting around for a while making folk country songs.
Be Ready When I Say Go – I really like the style of these guys. Solid rock music.
Sun Stealer – Not a bad indie rock song. Haven’t heard much of his other stuff.
The Ghost Hotel
Take me home – Haven’t heard much of these guys. Nice bluesy sound happening though. Vocals are a little weak.
Siren Song – Dark and sulty sounds. Flick plays more live music than just about anyone out there in Perth.
Tongues in Cheeks – Totally catchy song. Haven’t heard much of their other stuff. Indie rock type sound.
Mammalian Locomotion – Dark, brooding with some awesome bass sounds. Rocking. House mate may have a massive crush on her.
Cup of Coffee – Got a bit of a british short fast loud thing going on.
Something Special – Got a bit of a Brow Horn like instrumental feel but much cruisier.
Dancing With The Wind – Folk/roots style.
Silverspoon – Another band that I kind of feel has a british rock sound. This one a lot more chilled out.
All You Gotta Do – Really liked these guys since I found them on JJJ Unearthed. Indie is about as good as I can
describe them. Great song.
Rocket Ship – These young ‘uns get better and better every time I see them. Multiple great songs.
Brow Horn Orchestra
Don’t You Wanna Sing Forever? – WAMI film clip of the year last year. Great band to get up and dance to
even if I still miss Emcee Rezide.
Boom! Bap! Pow!
No Pleasin’ – These guys missed their soul era but they somehow make it work in today’s world.
