SWM youth show
South West Music will next week present its third live stream as part of its 2020 Concert Series.
The Friday, October 2 concert will be held at 4.30pm, with a free performance from four-piece Tasmanian indie rock band The Tinderboxers.
Concerts have moved online to allow the concert series to resume amidst lingering COVID-19 restrictions.
South West Arts projects and concerts coordinator Dana McNally said The Tinderboxers show promises to be a fun show aimed at young performers.
‘‘We will be having a small in-house viewing of the concert for those South West Music members aged 12 to 18,’’ she said.
‘‘The young performers will watch the concert from the Conservatorium and participate in a Q&A with the band following the performance.
‘‘Everyone else will be able to view the concert via Zoom.’’
Formed in high school, The Tinderboxers have already scored a string of high profile support slots. They have shared stages with the likes of Ruby Fields, Luca Brasi, Lime Cordiale and Slowly Slowly.
Their jangly guitar pop, synth laden choruses, precise string arrangements and emotive harmonies won them the Triple J Unearthed Party in the Paddock competition earlier this year.
The band’s music draws on the observations and personal experiences of frontman Alex Buktenica, offering a unique chronicle of 21st century Australian youth, and exploring classic themes of late adolescence such as hopeless romanticism, feelings of isolation, poignant reflections on ageing and the importance of home.
