In late 2020, select nominees of the Music Victoria Awards were given the opportunity for a paid and professionally filmed livestream event, thanks to funding from the Victorian Government’s Victoria Together Program.
These live-streamed concerts will provide a valuable income and promotional stream for the nine lucky recipients, along with providing income and networks to the crew behind the scenes.
Each Tuesday for the following 8 weeks, Music Victoria will introduce you to a new award-nominated artist, via live performances filmed at some of Victoria’s most iconic music venues, exclusively for Victoria Together.
Music Victoria presents Shepparton Airplane – Live at The Gasometer Hotel, Collingwood
Presented by Music Victoria
Still and Video Production by Semiconductor Media
Shepparton Airplane is a post-punk band from Melbourne, Australia. The band is driven by the twin guitars of Matt Duffy and Ezra Dowling and powered by the rhythm section of Steven Carter on drums and Stewart Rayner on bass guitar. Latest LP 'Sharks' is replete with unpredictable twists and genre-spanning soundscapes, signaling a sonic expansion for the band, all the while retaining the frenetic blend of jagged melody and pithy punk rock discourse found on 2018's 'Almurta' and 2016's self-titled debut. “Sharks” was nominated for Best Rock/Punk Album at the Music Victoria Awards 2020.
Catch a teaser of Shepparton Airplane's set below and keep checking in weekly for the other concerts on Victoria Together's website.
