Boutique music company, Rare Finds, will be showcasing a line-up of the best independent bands in Australia on December 3rd at The Zoo in Brisbane. Ticket holders will receive a free 13-track sampler album, with tracks from all the bands and including a special Mars Volta remix of The Dead Leaves single, If The Shoe Fits.
Headliners, YesYou, will play their first headline show since the live realisation of their brand of ultra cool electro pop. Their massive debut hit, Half Of It, is among the most played songs on Triple J during 2011.
The line-up also features indie darlings The Belligerents, Triple J Unearthed winners Founds, Teleprompter, and Tin Can Radio, rising stars Gung Ho, Kate Martin and The Trouble with Templeton, along with many other local favourites and fresh discoveries.
The free sampler will be instantly available for download for everyone who purchases tickets to the event, Rare Finds director Andrew Stone explains “the sampler is a great way for people, who might only know 3 or 4 of the bands playing, to download the tracks and get them into their iPod or iTunes, and get excited for all the other great bands playing as well, or to discover something brand new and cool.”
