HOMETOWNS: Sydney’s Flowertruck and Sunscreen to lead a top all-ages bill this week

Sydney outfits Flowertruck and Sunscreen will be swinging by Newcastle this week for an all-ages show at Softy’s Clubhouse.

The show forms part of a regional NSW tour, dubbed Hometowns, organised by record labels Spunk and Dinosaur City, taking the combined local rosters of both labels and friends back to their hometowns to give something back to the communities in which they cut their musical teeth.

Sarah Sykes from both Sunscreen and Flowertruck is a Newcastle native.

If the dream-pop stylings f Sunscreen or the indie-rock ear-worm merchants Flowertruck weren’t enough to get you excited, the bill will be rounded out by local acts e4444e, India and the Journey to the East and Chop – who recently pricked up quite a few ears as winners of the 2019 Bandwidth band comp.

Oh and best of all it’s all -ages and family-friendly so even your youngest whippersnappers can rock out with abandon.

Spunk is one of Australia’s longest-running record labels, celebrating 20 years this year! It’s 650 releases have featured some of the most awe-inspiring artists from around the globe. From Sufjan Stevens to Bill Callahan, Bat For Lashes & the Arcade Fire, the label has showcased some of the best artists of our time!

Dinosaur City Records meanwhile,was formed in 2015 by Jordanne Chant and Cody Munro Moore. It has since released 15+ records, annual mixtapes and is known for starting the careers of artists such as Body Type and Gauci. The label is ingrained heavily in the Sydney music scene
