In November and December 2019, Spunk Records and Dinosaur City Records took their combined rosters and friends back to their roots for an unforgettable tour of regional New South Wales, known as Hometowns 2019.
The tour saw artists including Jack Ladder, Big White, FLOWERTRUCK, Body Type, Babey, Shining Bird, Emma Russack, Lachlan Denton and Sunscreen return home for some very special performances, entertaining communities often omitted from the regular touring circuit.
The sold-out, all-ages shows took place in community centres, scout halls, warehouse spaces and bowling clubs across Bellingen, Wagga Wagga, Bermagui, Narooma, Wombarra, Kiama and more. Soon after, some of these areas were devastated by the summer fires.
Thanks to RØDE Microphones, live recording engineer Bowen Shakallis, mixing engineer Cody Munro Moore, Harvey O’Sullivan and FBi Radio, you can experience the tour on Bandcamp, and via FBi Radio Live Feed, for the month of July.
The 13-track live compilation can be purchased on Bandcamp for $5. All proceeds will go to Sydney’s FBi Radio, who need community support now more than ever.
