Special Guests: The Laurels & Where's Jerome?

There's been a lot said and written about Sydney's inner-city music scene of the eighties and early nineties - and rightly so. For many it represented the city's most fertile period of musical activity and produced an amazing array of talent. Feel Presents has long been a supporter of this era having released two volumes of the 2CD collection Tales From the Australian Underground: 1976 - 1990 as well as promoting tours for Radio Birdman, The (original) Saints, Died Pretty, Laughing Clowns and others.

This time around Feel are showing their support for the era via a series of live shows entitled On the Street (a term familiar to all discerning gig goers of the time) and together with the Sydney Fringe will present a month of gig-going activity that recalls those heady times.

This is one such gig.

Following a powerhouse comeback at the 2011 Big Day Out, The Hummingbirds reunite once more for this one-off Sydney headline appearance. Expect to hear the hits & more including anthemic singles Blush and Alimony from their 1990 debut album loveBuzz, recently voted into the 100 Greatest Australian Albums of All Time sharing space with such disparate acts as the The Loved Ones, Hoodoo Gurus, InXS, AC/DC and Kylie Minogue. A major achievement for a band who once called Darlinghurst's tiny Palace Hotel their second home. A major event that will be sure to sell very quickly.
