On July 29th 2017 ONE TROPICAL DAY returns in the midst of Darwin’s glorious dry season with GRINSPOON headlining along with an amazing entourage of Aussie musical talent such as THE SUPERJESUS, HOCKEY DAD and TIRED LION who will kick off the day and lead us into the sunset and rocking night time show.
Playing at Darwin’s newest outdoor venue, THE BOATYARD, located on Vesteys Beach adjacent the Darwin Ski Club, ONE TROPICAL DAY is excited to bring these rockers to Darwin in what will be a jammed packed evening of rock, indie rock and post grunge talent.
Headlining ONE TROPICAL DAY will be post-grunge Aussie rockers, GRINSPOON, having announced a 20th Anniversary deluxe edition of the album that kick started their longstanding music career, Guide To Better Living, alongside an epic 27-date national tour of Australia, where they will be playing the album from cover to cover.
Along with rock royalty THE SUPERJESUS who originally formed in Adelaide in 1994, mostly famously known for their hits Jet Age, Gravity, Rock Music and Eight Step Rail bring to Darwin their indie rock, post grunge musical styles with an expressive voice from their dynamic lead singer Sarah McLeod. The band is back stronger than ever after disbanding in mid 2004 and returning in 2013.
Also fitting effortlessly onto the bill HOCKEY DAD, who are two childhood friends from a seaside town in coastal Australia who have made it a long way in their short time of musical fame. Starting off playing in small bars in early 2013 Zach Stephenson and Billy Fleming really started to gather a following with the release of their first single named “Dreamin” in 2014. Recently signed with Kanine Records in the USA they are here to show Darwin why they were named the winners of Triple J’s Unearthed competition.
Plus join up and coming rockers TIRED LION straight out of Perth and into the Darwin dry, who are sure to have you rocking with their nostalgic sounds. Having supported the likes of KINGSWOOD, THE 1975 and GYROSCOPE this indie rock / pop foursome will have you on the dancefloor and humming songs you won’t want to forget. Lead singer Sophie Hopes says “the band is about the raw honesty in the music we make. If you sit back and take in the energy of what we are playing and what it's all about, it's a direct view into the looking glass that is collectively our lives - be it happy, sad or confusing. We're passionate about bringing to people a fresh take on this genre, keeping the guitars loud and trying to evoke some kind of feeling for the listener with dynamics and melody."
