VB Hard Yards Finalists Announced
FBi Radio and Victoria Bitter have teamed up to give some hard-working musos the chance to get a bit of a helping hand via the VB Hard Yards initiative, and three finalists have now been selected. The finalists will play alongside and receive a mentoring session with the Cosmic Psychos.
RACKETT have been toiling away for the past few years, hitting the trails for national tours with The Darkness and Stonefield, picking up tonnes of praise for their intense, high energy shows. Three -piece MINI SKIRT from Byron Bay have earned a reputation as an energetic and electrifying post-punk band. And SHEARIN’ have worked hard to perfect their music both in the studio and on-stage, gathering legions of fans with their rockerific dolewave anthem 'Budget Cuts'.
All three bands will play a show on Wednesday November 22 at The Lansdowne Hotel, hosted by VB. It's during this show that one of these bands will be crowned the winner of VB Hard Yards 2017, being awarded recording time at A-Sharp Studios to record a new single, mixed by legend-extraordinaire Nick Franklin. That recording will be pressed on a split 7" with the Cosmic Psychos AND they'll get to chat music with FBi’s music director Amelia Jenner before recording, as well as winning $3,000 cash.
