Southern Comfort today announce Southern Sounds, a string of curated nights inspired by the spirit of New Orleans – set to descend upon some of Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane’s most celebrated venues throughout summer – kicking off in January 2018.
Southern Comfort has handpicked some of their favourite Australian performers to celebrate the diverse and thriving culture of New Orleans, a city built on a love of live music and shared experience. Entry is on Southern Comfort, with a first come, first serve policy; so be sure to get down early.
Southern Sounds ramps up in Melbourne on January 11, where fierce hip-hop duo REMI, fast-rising act LOSSLESS and local artist Sezzo Snot will perform a soul-infused, Thursday evening set from Northcote Social Club.
The following week on January 18, Southern Sounds will head to Melbourne’s The Night Cat where Oscar Key Sung will lay his powerful, contemporary beats down alongside support from Silentjay (live) and Mira Boru, before heading to Sydney’s Botany View Hotel for a night dedicated to rock’n’roll and its prominent influence on the southern culture. Witness Sydney favourites Palms take the stage, following garage trio Bloods and Shag (DJ) on January 26.
The Southern Sounds tour will make a final stop at Brisbane’s The Foundry on February 1, where Joyride, Tiana Khasi and FlexMami will each deliver a rapturous, eclectic set of ground-breaking, hip-hop magic.
Southern Sounds will evoke the taste of New Orleans with bespoke Southern Sours and whiskey cocktails, providing ample added refreshment. Founded more than 140 years ago, Southern Comfort was born in the heart of New Orleans and is a key factor to the festive rise of the city’s vibrant live music scene. Southern Comfort has captured this melting pot of eclectic and vibrant spirits and will be re-creating it in Australia.
Don’t miss this not-to-be-missed event, experiencing the spirit of New Orleans through sound and taste!
