Sounds@Sunset #5

TUNES OF UP-AND-COMING local musicians have been floating through the Nightcliff ocean breeze this year for the monthly Sounds@ Sunset gigs. 

We caught up with producer Shanae Kuo to find out why the last gig of the year is one not to miss. 

There’s no secrets here – tell us everything we need to know for S@S #5?
It’s an all-female line-up with Aisha Hayashi, Helen and Grace, and Emma Roe. Emma is also bringing a special surprise guest with her.

Okay, so maybe there are some secrets. We hear there’s also going to be some furry friends down there?
I saw lots of people come down to the other events with their dogs so I wanted to make this one animal themed. People can bring their dogs down, and the RSPCA and Top End Rehoming will bring down rescue dogs for people to meet. I’m trying to help the pooches that are in shelters as well.

Sounds@Sunset is all about giving young Darwinites more skills – what have you learned as part of the program?
The main thing I’ve learnt is that communication is the key for getting things done. I’ve also learned there are very few venues out there for young people to perform in, and I’m trying to work on that with some other programs I’m involved with, too.

Tell us more!
Before I joined Launch I ran Casuarina’s busking program and have a bunch of musicians I’m connected with that I help book gigs. Red Moon Music are teaming up with places like Nirvana and Deck Bar and raising money for charities. It helps upcoming musicians get out of their comfort zones and perform in a bar setting.
