Ánthem Sunday Sessions
Sunday October 22
Young & Jackson, Melbourne.
The iconic Young & Jackson is known for being the home of Chole, Melbourne’s most famous pub painting. Its also where you gather on the street for a beer after footy or on ANZAC Day. Its old, its atmospheric and its landmark for locals.
However the Young & Jackson is now playing host to the Ánthem Sunday Sessions giving you another reason to enjoy live music at its best.
This Sunday saw local artists Molly Ash, Fool Child, Britto and Priscilla and Emily take to the stage to belt out some tunes. First up was Molly Ash with an acoustic set of original songs, some very emotional and nicely written, she’s sweet and nice to listen to and a great opener to ease into the afternoon. Following soon after the boys from Fool Child, with a folk / surfie sound to keep the momentum going. The lads play in a tight set with easy listening and a nice relaxed style. These guys are here because music is where they belong and its clear. During his set Britto takes no prisoners with his on stage banter and witty song writing skills. He wants you to listen and he’s going to command your attention. This guy isn’t content with being just background noise and he’s going to make sure you know it.
To round out the afternoon Priscilla and Emily covered a few of the classics to wind down the day and make for a pleasant end to the afternoon. The girls catered to the crowd by playing a few favourites from older acts and showed they know how to play to a room.
The Ánthem Sessions don’t only play in the inner city for all of the suburb folk. There are also sessions in Frankston, Camberwell, Chadston and Mulgrave they have the city covered.
