Goolugatup Sounds I

From 7pm, 26th March 2021
Bambi & Allbrook, Special Feelings Feat. Bad Whipp

Live for the first time, BAMBI & ALLBROOK is the new ambient collaboration of Dominic Simper (Tame Impala) and Nick Allbrook (Pond), an almost-too-perfect meeting of minds from two thoughtful icons of West Coast psychedelia. In the gentle wake of Simper’s debut under the Bambi moniker (2020 EP ‘Unfolding’) and atmospheric journeys such as ‘surf ii’ from Allbrook’s solo catalogue, tonight the two join forces to send mellow frequencies across the Goolugatup gardens as you swan through.

Plumbing totally different, but equally free flowing cosmic latitudes, SPECIAL FEELINGS team up with BAD WHIPP (members of GRIEVOUS BODILY CALM) to offer their distinctive, totally unbridled take on futuristic jazz - suffused with the twinned spirits of instrumental hip-hop and electronic beat music. Expect joyous expression, interweaving instrumental tangents, and a hugely dynamic ride. This rarely-seen supergroup feels less like a band, more like a billowing cloud of musical enthusiasm.

Bands take to the stage from 7pm; be sure to arrive early to explore Goolugatup’s incredible array of exhibitions (https://fb.me/e/3KZKVYF6L), opening in tow from 6pm. Pizza, full bar and sunset-by-the-river are also guaranteed. This is a FREE event.
