We kicked straight into the new year with a fun and vibrant in-store performance from an all female lineup of local outfits A+ and The Opals. Although the beginning of the year has been trying for many different people in many different ways, it is certainly beautiful to see and feel the community coming together to support each other, help out in any way we can, while also, in this case, celebrating live music. In light of the current bushfires, Echo Tone ran a fundraising raffle with a store voucher that was up for grabs for the CFA and we managed to donate $347.
