VENUE: Amplifier–Nevsky Prospekt, Genre: Alternative Rock-July 10, 2015
Friday 10th July, the only venue in Perth to be at was Amplifier for this talented local line up.
Show kicked off with Nevsky Prospekt – 3 piece band from Perth formed in 2011 Nevsky are Stuart Mckay – Guitars, Vocals Haydn Bishop – Bass Perry De Gennaro – Drums.
I have had the privileged of watching these guys evolve since they came on to my radar over a year ago. Their sound has improved over this time and the material was always good anyway. Stu McKay plays guitar and sings their tunes that are driven by catchy riffs and unique vocal hooks. The more you hear the lyrical content the more you realise the place from which this comedy resonates, roots planted solidly in original punk music. This influence resurfaces again in the simplistic approach the band demonstrates when playing, they reject fluff of any description. It’s real, its catchy, its performed well and yep I’m a fan. Looking forward to what comes next from these boys. This show was another success and the crowd ventured out early to support them.

"MUSIC IS MY LIFE"
This sentence gets banded around by both performers & consumers for as long as I can remember.
But what does that actually mean?
I can only speak for myself, so I will attempt to describe what that means to me. Music can change my headspace from negative to positive within minutes, it can improve my attitude, it stimulates and inspires me, it provides a sound track to important life events and memories, it unites me with like minded souls and saves me from despair when I am challenged by life circumstances. Music gives me hope.
To show my appreciation I work to promote the work of many creative artists, I buy their material, I purchase tickets to see them perform and I spend my money of their merchandise. By supporting and contributing to the international music industry, I play my part in securing its future.
You are welcome!
