The Whistleblowers, Activists and Citizens Alliance is hosting a series of events all through summer, including community concerts, house gigs in lounge rooms and backyards, and intimate acoustic bedrooms sessions all across Narrm, all featuring local talent.
WACA is a grassroots alliance supporting communities to campaign to end war, defend human, environmental & civil rights & confront corporate corruption.
Your attendance will support WACA activists to pay off a year’s worth of fines from protesting abusive government policies.
Celebrate community and creativity, and enjoy a summer day with us!
Bedroom session 1
28 January at 4pm - A Bedroom in West Footscray
You are invited to a special, exclusive bedroom session of accoustic sets by all round summer hotties Public Meltdown and the girls of Doona Waves. Come get cosy and intimate and listen to some soft summer tunes. There will be babes, beverages and beats xx
Public Meltdown is the solo project of Elspeth Scrine, known from fronting Melbourne-based electronic three piece, Huntly. A defected jazz vocalist, Public Meltdown distills influences from British dance music to R&B, with a choir boy attitude. This is pop music that templates a shift between the romantic, apocalyptic, and existential, appropriately backlit by an enmeshment of tension and tenderness.
Mia Tinkler & Bella Quinlan (singers of band Doona Waves) explore their solo works together, amongst some older band songs. They sing songs apart and together, in between 80s guitar riffs, beach pop lullabies & country twang.
