Blues on Broadbeach is thrilled to announce that The Beautiful Girls are coming to Broadbeach and joining us as the prelude act to Wolfmother, performing at 7:00 pm on Saturday, May 22nd on the Kurruwa Park Stage!
But don’t be fooled by the band name, The Beautiful Girls operate as more of a collective. In fact, they’re not even girls! Similarly to the likes of Kevin Parker’s psychedelic project Tame Impala, The Beautiful Girls’ music is created by Mat McHugh, with various musicians joining him depending on what he’s writing at the time.
His diverse and groovy sounds are grounded in Roots but inspired by a range of genres, including Dub, Reggae and Folk, with a dash of punk rock spirit on the side. Just enough to whet the audience’s appetite before headline act Wolfmother rock the stage.
We can’t wait to see The Beautiful Girls.
In other news, our friends from across the Tasman, Kiwi reggae roots outfit The Black Seeds are no longer able to perform at Blues on Broadbeach 2021 due to the challenging logistics of arranging travel under these COVID-impacted times, but we hope to see them at our festival in the future.
