Underhouse Priestessa

Underhouse #7

A Houseless Kuranda House Concert

UNDERHOUSE #7 @ The Understage “An Evening In Paradise”
Featuring Priestessa & Dash (Melb)
Kuranda Amphitheatre, Saturday the 13th of September 2014

What happens when you don’t drive, you like to play live music and get together with and support other musicians? You organise house-concerts of course!

Kuranda’s “ever-subversive” globe-trotting ukulele duo Bosko & Honey were inspired by Nicholas Mills and his activities at Arthouse (where the the homely vibe is always strong) and since 2013 have played host to six house concerts under their old Queenslander home in Kuranda. With the support of Nick Mills and many Kuranda locals, “Underhouse” has become a highlight event for those in the know.
Usually inspired by the presence of an out-of-town act, each Underhouse has a theme of sorts, and showcases interstate and even international performers supported by lashings of local talent in an atmospheric and comfy rainforest setting.

Previous Underhouse concert bills have included Mike Cooper (Rome), Cello Joe (Canada), SETO (Japan), 8 Foot Felix (Melbourne), The Formidable Vegetable Sound System (Everywhere), Bart Thrupp (Brisbane), Renee Searles (Byron Bay), AJ Leonard (Melbourne), Dino Divo (Melbourne), Bunni (Vietnam) plus local legends Diggis, Polymantra, Secret Tuesdays, Blu Lustre, Faux Mo, Dave Cooke, Johannes Selhofer, Astrid Elika, Papa Stanley, File_Error, Paddy J, Bec Hastie, Trish Mo, Yuval Shalit, MO Zach, and of course Bosko & Honey.

Times have changed, however, and Bosko & Honey have had to move house. Now in a tiny apartment without the space to host events, they have responded to requests for another Underhouse by holding one at the Kuranda Amphitheatre… the “Understage” of course!

UNDERHOUSE #7 @ The Understage “An Evening In Paradise” will be headlined by Priestaessa & Dash (Melbourne) to kick off their Visigoths EP Tour. Priestessa & Dash build their music on the old fashioned notions of song craft, lyrical integrity and endless harmony. The chill of Melbourne’s southeast can be felt in the vocalisations which are reminiscent of Sarah Blasko and Stevie Nicks. Since 2009 Priestessa have been playing at Festivals such as FRL, Renaissance and the Darebin Music Feast. In 2011 they toured the UK, France and Germany, playing at Festivals like Sunrise and Glastonbury. priestessaanddash.com
