The time has come. This Sunday July 23, former lead vocalist of Frente, Angie Hart will make a special appearance at the very last Unplugged Live performance of the year. After spending approximately seven years with her ARIA award-winning band, she carried on making wondrous and sentimental pop-throwback tunes with her husband in the indie-pop duo Splendid. Talk about relationship goals. Since then, she’s released two solo albums, Grounded Bird (2007) and Eat My Shadow (2009), both showcasing super-catchy, acoustic guitar melodies. On top of that, don’t forget that Unplugged Live is always accompanied by one artist whose works will be available for you to take a look at. Kathy Temin made a name for herself in the ‘90s when her unique work technique of combining painting, sculpture, art and craft, abstraction and figuration into one using synthetic fur received many and various critics among art lovers. In addition, this show is absolutely free, starting at 2pm. Head to NGV website for more information.

Or perhaps you’re more interested in ‘an afternoon show that promises to be dope’ at Hip Hop Hooray at The Melba Spiegeltent. It features past triple j Unearthed Feature Artist of the Week Jimblah. His recent release Usually I’m Cool with Coda Conduct and jayteehazard can give you a glimpse of his contemporary sounds. Philly will be joining, a little fun fact, both artists proudly represent their indigenous roots. Nothing but respect. Does Philly sound familiar? You may have heard their Bob Marley Three Little Birds cover for triple j’s Like A Version. That was one of a heartfelt performance. Last but not least, if you enjoy Amy Winehouse’s sassy and alluring vocal deliveries on her second and final studio album Back to Black, you might also enjoy the last act, Lady Lash. Hip Hop Hooray goes down on Sunday July 23 from 12.30pm. Head to Leaps and Bounds Festival’s website for further information.


If you want to drag on your Sunday gig adventures, you can move on to Sunday at the Copacabana presented by Aarght Records and Ali Bird as part of Leaps and Bounds. There will be six fresh and diverse bands on the lineup. Doors open at 1pm and Hot Topic will kick off the show. Then it goes on to Drug Sweat, Bahdoesa, Power, RVG, and final act SHOUSE. The show doesn’t end there because DJs Jess Ribeiro, Karina Utomo (frontwoman of punk-rock band High Tension) and Ruby Koomen will provide the danceable tunes until 9pm. It’s held at Copacabana International, Fitzroy.
