What’s a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than at a record store catching some live music? This weekend Melbourne music blog Paper-Deer is holding their first ever live event this Sunday at Pure Pop Records.
The free, all-ages event will feature acoustic performances by Georgia Fair and Alexander Gow from Oh Mercy. Georgia Fair is a duo comprising good mates Jordan Wilson and Ben Riley. The folk-inspired duo have released two EPs – Georgia Fair and Times Fly – and are currently working on an album which is set to be released later this year.
Alexander Gow will be heading off on a national solo tour with Dan Sultan in July. After touring the country in support of Oh Mercy’s latest album, Great Barrier Grief, Gow will use this opportunity to showcase his solo material. Conway Savage from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds will also be performing later in the day.
So if you can’t think of an answer to the question above, then why not head along?
