Hot Freaks was undoubtedly one of the most important gigs for local music that has occurred in this first half of 2017.Featuring local Perth artists such as Grim Fandango, Red Jezebel, Glass Wave, as well as Brisbane rockers Screamfeeder. The line-up of this years show went above and beyond as far as representing Perth’s ever growing rock scene is concerned.
Taking place over seven hours, from 6pm to 1:30am the following morning. There wasn’t a single second of the event which made you feel as if you wanted to be somewhere else. Even for me, someone who goes to sleep at 9pm, I was energised the entire night. Looking forward to the next set of the next band for the next amazing performance.One of the major highlights of the night was Glass Wave. A Perth Punk band that’s been gaining popularity since the release of their debut EP in December last year. Playing a mixture of familiar tracks from their EP, and new tunes which haven’t been heard before. They even said while I talked to them after their set, that we should keep an eye out for a new tune, and accompanying music video within the next two months.
Hot Freaks 2017 was undoubtedly one of Perth’s greatest local gigs this side of the year. And hopefully, thanks to the amount of people who showed up, is something that we’ll get to see again next year.
