The View From Here #21: Abbe May

Monday 24th July / posted by Chris Wheeldon

RTRFM have teamed up with Fremantle story to bring you the next series of The View From Here, RTRFM’s long running video series highlighting local bands in unique and special locations.

For this series RTRFM heads to the port city to showcase the amazing spaces in and around Fremantle with some of Perth’s favourite musicians.

We join Perth’s favourite musical daughter Abbe May as she takes over the Fly By Musicians Club in the amazing Victoria Hall on High Street, Fremantle.

Abbe May, joined by KT Rumble (Bass) and Matt Wright (Drums) roll through thirteen minutes of blistering, guitar ladened classic Abbe May sounds. Constantly re-inventing herself, Abbe takes on the roll as front person better then anyone in Australia.

They roll through four songs – Are We Flirting, Like Me Like I Like You, Universe and Mamailan Locomotion – ebbing and flowing through the sublime to the straight up rocking, showing her range as a player and a vocalist.

Abbe’s sound fills the amazing 120-year-old Victoria Hall with her unique and perfectly suited music. An amazing building to match an amazing performer.

The View From Here will cover a variety of genres, showcasing the wellspring of talent in Western Australia’s music scene. The performances themselves will also take place in a variety of unique Fremantle locations, to be revealed as the series progresses.

Thanks to the City of Fremantle and Fremantle story: Be Part of the story for their support In The View From Here.

Head to fremantlestory.com.au to find more live music in Fremantle.

RTRFM and The City of Fremantle acknowledges the Whadjuk people as the traditional owners of the greater Fremantle/Walyalup area and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still important to the Nyoongar people today.

Like Me Like I Like You
