Hear the stars of Western Sydney in this new free gig series

New South Wales’ live music scene has taken a few hits in recent days, with music festivals axing gigs and making plans to move interstate, seeking out a land of lesser government regulation. While it’s a worrying trend, there’s still stellar new acts leaping onto the stage in Sydney thanks to organisations like the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre (CPAC) in Liverpool.

CPAC Live will be an ongoing series of free shows featuring similarly styled Western Sydney performers, and for the first edition they’re inviting artists from the hip hop and R’n’B arena to strut their musical stuff. The headline act for the inaugural party in the centre’s Turbine Hall will be laid-back hip hop troupe Freesouls, who won Sydney over with their 2018 hit ‘Kush Koma’.

They’ll be supported by multilingual rapper Leeroy Pereze and up-and-coming vocalist Calmell Teagle. Doors open at 5pm, and you can waltz through for free for a pre-show feed of burgers and beer from Bellbird Dining and Bar and Stockade Brew Co.
