Electro-pop band Sunset City will headline the final Live at Bond for 2016 on July 23, where they will launch their newest single 'Love Me With The Lights On' off their debut album set to be released later this year.
Sunset City will take the stage as the sun sets on Bond University's Twilight Open Day, which will also feature campus tours, art and architectural installations, street food and bars, live entertainment and a fireworks display.
Known for their upbeat electronic sound, local act Sunset City have been making waves on the Australian pop scene since the release of their debut single 'Neon'.
The four-piece are set to launch their latest track to the Live at Bond crowd, giving fans a taste of the music to come from their debut album, to be released in September.
"We started in Burleigh Heads just over a year ago, and since then have played gigs across the Gold Coast at live music institutions such as Sounds of Sunday, Shark Bar and Surfers Paradise Live," said Paul French, the band's lead singer.
"We've been really lucky to receive so much support from radio stations like Hot Tomato, ABC, SeaFM and 94.1FM.
"Our music is a fusion between a traditional band sound and a more modern electro-vibe. We bring a lot of energy to our live shows and a really fun, party feel which is exactly what the Live at Bond crowd can expect.
"We're so excited to be launching our latest single, and can't wait to share what we've been working on with everyone who comes out to have a dance with us at Live at Bond."
The Live at Bond concert series has built a strong following of fans and music lovers from the wider community and showcases a combination of professional headline artists and emerging musicians.
The free, all-ages gig on Saturday, July 23 will take place in Bond University's ADCO Amphitheatre, kicking off at 2.45pm with a showcase of local school bands including All Saints Anglican School, Benowa State High School, A.B. Paterson College and Trinity Lutheran College.
Sunset City will take the stage at 6:15pm, followed by fireworks over the lake at 8:00pm. Guests are invited to bring a chair, rug or picnic blanket and enjoy an afternoon and evening of free music, a food truck precinct and bar serving beer, wine, champagne, drinks and snacks, plus an on-site coffee van.
The musical performances form part of Bond University's Open Day celebrations, with people encouraged to tour the campus, learn about the university's innovative study programs, talk to world-class academics and experience the campus at twilight while enjoying the sounds of live music.
Open Day and Live at Bond are free, all ages events.
