VOTE NOW: 6 local Perth bands fostered by 6 music publications (including us!) for Falls Downtown Music Fest
Six WA music publications - including yours truly - have been pitted against each other by each backing a band for a coveted spot at the 2016 Falls Downtown Music Festival.
Featuring six bands from the local Perth music scene from a different array of genres, it’s a great chance for a local band to get exposure.
Under the “Foster a Band” moniker, the bands and media publications involved in the fostering include:
Pow Negro fostered by Cool Perth Nights
Bells Rapid fostered by Isolated Nation
Phocal fostered by Pilerats
Dream Rimmy fostered by The Music
Gold Suns fostered by the West Australian
The Hunting Birds fostered by Music Insight
The band will be decided via public vote and the winner will gain a spot in the Falls 2016 Line-up.

In Transformers: The Last Knight, the freak show has been toned down; there's precious little human bile forced down your throat this go around. Heck, there's even some attempts at respectability. Which is boring and nullifies the series' proudly nihilistic juvenile identity.
With a fervent belief that true commitment to bad-taste transforms it into something fashionable, fun and infectious, Kirin is a lot to take in.
Slowdive know how to play to their strengths, pulling from the best moments of their discography to present us with something that is at once familiar and refreshing.
I couldn’t think of anything more terrifying than playing a delicate set of acoustic jazzy music to room full of mostly black overcoat-clad, chin stroking, forty-something, ultra-discerning listeners. But for The Necks, that is the thesis for their completely improvised performances.
The Exes share a deep passion for vocal harmonies and heartbreakingly good songwriting. This killer combination has crystallised itself on their new album When We Fall. We caught up with the Exes ahead of their two gigs at Babushka and Fly By Night this weekend.
We caught up with Sydney singer-songwriter Montaigne to chat about making positive change, video games, life, death, and spirituality. Have a read, then do yourself a favour and purchase tickets for her performance at Capitol on the 29th of July.
