Join us on Thursday night for a huge night of live music from some talented Tasmanian musicians. Entry is free! Bring your friends, grab dinner and settle in to see Isabel Rumble, Monique How, The Namesakes, Shoe and The Bad Dad Orchestra take to the Main Stage at Prince's Square.

Isabel Rumble

Isabel Rumble invites listeners into a cocoon of reflection on the subtleties of love, nature and human relationships.

Warm and clear vocals accompanied by acoustic guitar invokes artists of the folk genre, like Joni Mitchell and Laura Marling. Isabel’s intuitively crafted songs define an observant and soul-stirring emerging young artist.

The Namesakes

Launceston outfit The Namesakes play melodic, song-focused rock ‘n’ roll with flashes of 60s pop, classic punk, British and Australian indie and American college rock. They have released two EPs, a self-titled debut in 2018 and Super Computer in the December of last year. The latter received positive reviews on several independent music blogs. They recently supported Custard for the Tasmanian leg of their Respect the Form of 2022 tour.

Since their single ‘Egg’ was released in 2009 featuring a film clip by animator Felix Colgrave, Shoe’s popularity has continued to grow in the weirdest corners of the internet. After a brief/eight-year hiatus the group eventually dragged itself out of the mud and sticks where it had been enjoying its retirement and rejoined the world in 2019. Those weird, dank corners of the internet are going wild and the time has come for Shoe to return to their original birthplace - the live stages of Tasmania.

The Bad Dad Orchestra

Formed in 2015, The Bad Dad Orchestra presents a nine-piece partnership of fatherhood and friendship. Their driving rhythm section, guitars, keys and a three-piece horn-section deliver a unique yet familiar sound behind the front-man Jimi Steele.
