MUSHROOM BRINGS MUSIC TO YOUR EARS IN 2019 WITH THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF MUSHROOM AFTER HOURS AT COLONIAL BREWING CO.
Mushroom are excited to present to you the next leg of their showcase series, Mushroom After Hours.
Presented in partnership with Colonial Brewing Co., the showcase will take place at Colonial’s brewery in Port Melbourne on Wednesday 13 February. This night will feature two of the most exciting names in Australian music; Grammy-nominated trio, Mansionair and electronic newcomer, musician-producer, upsidedownhead.
And the best part? Mushroom After Hours is EXCLUSIVE and FREE to those lucky enough to win a double pass. With no tickets available to purchase, punters simply need to sign up at mushroom.com/afterhours to go in the running to win and stay informed about future events.
Note: Winners must be 18+. They will be notified on Tuesday 5 February and must RSVP by Thursday 7 February to secure their spot.
Mushroom and Colonial Brewing Co. have come together to transform Colonial’s brewery into an intimate performance space. Exceptional food and Colonial’s full suite of beers will be on offer, and completely complementary to the lucky winners.
Since their debut single, ‘Hold Me Down’, Mansionair have acquired an impressive 130 million streams worldwide across their singles including ‘Easier’, ‘Falling’, ‘Astronaut (Something About Your Love)’ – which recently achieved Gold sales status – and their most recent offering, ‘Shadows’. The trio have seen ARIA and Billboard chart success, supported major tours including London Grammar, Florence & The Machine, and CHVRCHES, and earned themselves a Grammy nomination for their work with Odesza on ‘Line Of Sight’.
Next on their radar? Alongside upcoming appearances at Laneway Festival and as one of only a handful of Australian’s on the 2019 Coachella bill, Mansionair’s highly anticipated debut album Shadowboxer is set for release on March 1; just two weeks following Mushroom After Hours. Those lucky enough to score tickets will have exclusive access to a pre-release performance.
“It bookends our first years of discovering who we are and what we wanted Mansionair to be, as we pushed through insecurities, uncertainties and moments of relief. It’s as much a diary of our first three years working together as friends as it is about making every mistake possible together.”
Up and coming musician-producer upsidedownhead will open proceedings on Wednesday 13 February. After years of tinkering on his own, the man behind upsidedownhead, Ross James, posted a single track online, ‘get low’, featuring the vocals of his friend Ric Rufio. With no video, no promotion, no label or social media, the song spread like digital wildfire, catching the attention of radio and forcing James to finally take upsidedownhead public.
“I really just wanted to make something I enjoyed,” James says with a fair hint of disbelief, “and when I put ‘get low’ up people started contacting me from all over the place telling me they loved it. I probably should have done it earlier.”
upsidedownhead released his debut EP complex only a few short months ago via Liberation Records. Featuring the debut track ‘get low’ alongside ‘my cave’ and ‘the moment’ (check out the live video here), the artist has piqued the interest of a global audience on this, his first complete solo offering.
