Perth’s Birds of Tokyo are fresh out of Australia’s Covid lockdown and up and running after a delicious Australian tour with Symphony Orchestras. The guys have teamed up with Coopers to play a Live, Loud and Local gig on April 11 on WA’s Rottnest Island. The band’s sixth album ‘Human Design’ is out now and this will an awesome opportunity to witness what’s been cooking over the last year.
The Live, Loud and Local series aims to support Australia’s hospitality and entertainment industries as well as the local communities hit hard by COVID-19 and related social gathering restrictions.
Melanie Cooper, Coopers Brewery Director and fifth generation family member, said the brewery wanted to build on the momentum generated by its initial Live, Loud and Local series which became Australia’s biggest virtual pub experience during the national lockdown.
“Our first series was all about bringing the pub experience into Australian lounge rooms so patrons stuck at home could still enjoy a night out on the couch,” Mel said.
“Now we want to help bring great Australian live music back to the stage and encourage people off the couch and into their local pub.
“It’s been a really challenging time for venues, musicians and patrons. Live music is an essential part of our culture as is heading to the local for a social drink with friends. It’s something we’ve all missed. We’re putting together a great series of gigs that will allow fans the chance to see their favourite bands perform live again and support local venues in a socially responsible way.”
Birds of Tokyo: Formed in Perth back in 2004, Birds of Tokyo have grown from independent roots to become one of Australia’s most popular contemporary rock bands. Songs like “Good Lord”, “Two Of Us”, “Plans”, “Lanterns”, “Brace” and “I’d Go With You Anywhere” have all been top 10 airplay hits and have lead to appearances at every major festival in this country including Falls, Splendour In The Grass and Groovin’ The Moo, as well as headlining slots at the AFL Grand Final and NRL’s flagship State of Origin game.
