Hometowns tour for November! Plus Coalchella!


This December, with support from Create NSW, Spunk Records and Dinosaur City will launch ‘Hometowns’, a month-long program where the labels combined local rosters and friends return to their roots to perform, educate and engage with the communities in which they were raised, inspiring the next generation of young musicians across New South Wales. Artists including Jack Ladder (w band), Big White, Body Type, Shining Bird, Steve Gunn (USA), Floodlights, Flowertruck and Poison Abbey will be performing ten shows down the coast from Bellingen, Avalon to Bermagui out to Cooma and Wagga over the months of November and December.
While the basic premise of Hometowns is for the eight artists to return to their place of birth, the underlying feature is for the artist to return home and give love and support back to their local community. The shows in each town, will not just be one-off events. They are also going to encompass a full day of performances and talks at the artists’ former high schools. The partnerships aren’t just going to be with schools and the employed musicians, they are with the venues who are being encouraged to program contemporary music, which rarely (or never) happens in their venues.
Hometowns endeavours to bring relief to the community in these areas as well which aren’t on the regular touring circuit. Gluing the whole process together is two record labels, Dinosaur City & Spunk.
