TRIM THE FAT // LIVE MUSIC // BOD SUNDAYS
Sunday Smallgoods is excited to welcome Karate Boogaloo and J.Macfarlanes Reality Guest in for an intimate performance on March 29.
Making up the rhythm section of long-time Melbourne soul favourites The Cactus Channel, Karate Boogaloo are the zany quartet that exists to remind us of the beauty of colouring outside the lines; their unconventional, heavy hitting funk guided by a steadfast commitment to bending the rules.
2020 is looking to be big for the Boogers, with their debut album dropping, and a European tour on the horizon, with a slot at Giles Peterson’s We Out Here festival.
J. McFarlanes Reality Guest is a visionary project from the prolifically talented Jules McFarlane. The ex-Twerps member’s album ‘Ta Da’ has the instant appeal of a timeless pop classic and the surprising thrills of a free jazz odyssey. It made Triple R’s album of the week, with it’s powerful melodies, playful instrumentation, dubby production and pure creative curiosity. Her live performances with like-minded multi-instrumentalists Tamsen Hopkinson and Ela Stiles showcase a wealth of musical prowess.
Both bands have recently ticked playing at Meredith’s Supernatural Amphitheatre off their bucket list, with Karate Boogaloo playing a standout sunset performance in December and J. Macfarlanes Reality Guest delivering an unforgettable performance at Golden Plains last weekend.
