Continental deli. Cafe. Bottle shop. Leederville’s endlessly brilliant Re Store is different things to different people. Today, the Oxford Street landmark has added live music venue to its CV. Sort of.
The View From Here, RTRFM’s award-nominated short-film series that films local musicians performing in different locations, launched its second season with a 25-minute video of local dream-pop act Rabbit Island playing in the Leederville Re Store basement.
The video is as notable for the performances of the band’s frontwoman Amber Fresh and long-time collaborator Nick Allbrook (Pond, ex-Tame Impala) as it is for taking viewers behind the scenes at one of Perth’s favourite food and wine emporiums.
The next episode of The View From Here is released in May. Previous episodes can be seen at the RTRFM website.
