All Things Meant To Be Enjoyed: Candence Commotions #2

Written by Leyne Elbourne on July 17, 2008

Sydney promoter/agent/manager/local music enthusiast – Cadence Commotions’ MD Leyne Deyveson talks to Music Feeds about YourSpace artists, random talent spotting, young people making music and upcoming events…

YourSpace Muso Showcase is an anomaly in the local music scene – ever growing, attracting new acts and new fans, each week presenting a wide spectrum of genres and levels of expertise and consistently booking out like hotcakes made to order. Our next available spot is mid September, so get in quick.

We’re also exploring new creative directions – By leaving plasticine and paper and textas out around the bar we let punters and artists of any persuasion or pedigree produce sketches, drawings, poems, lyrics, word games, puzzles and even mini sculptures. There are obviously the inevitable obscenities, funny little animals, noughts & crosses or dirty love poems – but every so often there appears some great examples of people’s sometime un-noticed, or even unknown artistic talents, some featured on this page.

So when’s the next chance to come down to The Sly Fox to check it out? Thursday 17th July. 7 solo acts and 3 bands, including return acts: BLo, Nancy C Mylott (ex-Kandy Apples), Shell Child, Rex Havoc, Laura Nolan and making their YourSpace debuts: Eirwen Skye, Ruby Moon, The Virgin Thursdays, Rohan Kleem and Come Up Smiling.

Then after you have gotten over your YourSpace induced hangover – Saturday 19th July hits and no is not just World Youth Day (queue chilling horror-movie sound effect) but something much less oppressive, much more fun and most definitely worth being influenced by – the first (of hopefully many) majorMINORS ALL AGES show at The Bald Faced Stag, Leichhardt. The show features TEN acts under 18 including: Shoulders of Giants, Cash, Classroom Riot, Mel Creagan & Bec Sandridge, A Bad Days Good Night, Max Wilkinson, Caleb Skips Chemistry, Minnie Marks, Is It Her and Spiel. Music kicks off at 12 Noon with a $10 entry.

The majorMINORS gig has been organised to present these great young musicians with all their various genres at an actual Venue. Young musicians very rarely get to perform on such a scale, often only getting to play at community festivals, youth clubs, band competitions and the like. If this show goes along as expected and is a great success – this will hopefully lead on to having further such events to feature even more talented young, upcoming musos. So grab your mates, kids, bros, hoes, sisters and sistas and come to the show! For more info on the majorMINORS show visit: http://www.myspace.com/majorminorsgig

Then just when you think you have had enough rest and are ready for more – it’ll be time for… The next YourSpace on the 24th July. 5 solo acts, 1 duo & 4 bands. Return acts: Joel Brocherie, Bud Petal, Scott Hackett, Simon Li, Nathan George, Elisha Keen, And Many More, Lazy Jesters – plus YS newbies: One Day Of Silence & Ungus Ungus Ungus.
