FBi Radio announces ‘Young Blood’

The under-18s gig gives young punters the chance to catch some of the nation’s finest musicians. 

Headlining is Ali Barter, with the femme rock champ playing tracks from her debut album A Suitable Girl. 

Joining her is noise/folk rock four-piece Tiny Little Houses fresh from the release of their ‘coming of age’ long-play Idiot Proverbs. Sharp, loud and sarcastic as hell, the Melbourne boys paint a whole new picture of what it’s like to grow up as a Gen Y slacker.

Also in tow is the sweet, sun-drenched garage pop of Flowertruck. Releasing their debut album Mostly Sunny on March 16, just two days before Young Blood, the event’s a chance to hear them play stacks of new tracks live for the first time.

Kicking the arvo off will be the noisy, lo-fi sounds of Newcastle 18-year-old Fritz. Putting out her debut album at the impressive age of 17, Fritz is a young gun that lets her music do the talking.

Plus, jumping on the decks for a special appearance is DZ Deathrays delivering blistering DJ sets.

The event is curated by FBi’s own Al Grigg, also a member of local Sydney bands Straight Arrows and Palms. Grigg says,

Some of the best memories from my teenage years are from the many all ages shows I went to at The Metro and The Fitz in St Ives back in the day.

“Music resonates with you in such a different and vital way when you’re young and those early live music experiences blew my sheltered mind way open, giving me a glimpse of a world that seemed so far removed from my daily life in suburban Sydney.” 

“I was stoked to have the opportunity to pull together a lineup for under 18s and to try and create that experience for teenagers today.

“Building audiences for live music is a core part of what FBi does, and engaging these younger audiences not only ensures a generation of new music lovers and an investment in the industry’s future, but also gives them the opportunity to experience something really special.”
