Coast bands to set stage for play
AN ELECTRIC harp pouring out psychedelic melodies will lead the way to a performance of a new Australian play next week.
Coast band The Flumes will bring soulful musical stylings to the pre-show entertainment at the Nambour Civic Centre before the curtain opens on the comedy Hedonism's Second Album on September 4.
The play, by David Burton and Claire Christian, is about a fictitious Brisbane indie rock band, Hedonism.
Newly clean, front man Gareth is losing his cool, lead guitarist Chimney has cold feet, bass player Michael is keeping secrets and drummer Sumo has vanished.
Hedonism has rocketed from pub gigs to international tours, but now the pressure is on to make a second album.
To set the scene for the play, The Flumes and Coast band The Floating Bridges will bring the live vibe for a total gig experience.
The Flumes hope to invigorate audiences both new and old with their music.
"It's something a bit different for us and we're excited to be part of that whole musical vibe of the night," harpist Kayt Wallace said.
"It's going to be a whole evening of music.
"We will stay and watch too, can't wait to see it."
The Floating Bridges' formation was based on the Sunshine Coast, but diversity, eclecticism and travel have strengthened their musical skills.
