In conjunction with G’Day USA, the Twilight Concert series presented “Australia Rocks The Pier”.
The first act performing on the Santa Monica Pier was Aussie Native Phebe Starr. Like the opening act from the prior week, Phebe had been the winner of a competition to perform for the Twilight Concert audience.
I arrived at the pier after she had already started her set, but was able to get into the photo pit for the last half of her set.
Her music is synth pop akin to Lykii Li and Sia. Though I only caught a portion of her set, I could see the potential she has in developing her sound. She is in Los Angeles to record music, and it’d be interesting to see how Los Angeles inspires her songwriting.
