Back in March, Rolling Stone launched new IGTV series In My Room, showcasing artists all over the world performing to very, very intimate audiences in lockdown.

The first episode kicked off with a performance by Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson in his California home. Fittingly, Wilson began with a short instrumental performance of “In My Room,” the Beach Boys’ early classic from 1963.

Rolling Stone Australia has also been featuring In My Room performances by legacy artists and newer names on its IGTV. With artists across genres and across the globe, performances from the likes of Haim, Indigo Girls and Goo Goo Dolls have been intimate, unforgettable experiences.

Now, in partnership with Green Beacon Brewing, Rolling Stone Australia is ramping things up a notch with four special performances every Sunday night from June 14th.

Kicking off the all-Australian In My Room lineup on Sunday June 14th is Brisbane alt-pop masterminds Cub Sport. The band are set to release their fourth studio album Like Nirvana next month, which Rolling Stone gave a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 in its latest magazine.

The following week will see Adelaide’s Bad//Dreems take over Rolling Stone Australia‘s IGTV on Sunday June 21st for their own In My Room performance. The band recently returned with a brand new single last month, sharing the blistering “Desert Television” on May 22nd.

The third act to take part in In My Room will be Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever on June 28th. Rolling Stone recently sat down with the indie-rockers to talk about their new LP Sideways to New Italy. “That kind of diaspora or creating a home away from home was sort of theme we were working around when we were making the record,” said vocalist and guitarist Joe White.

The final act to take part in the Green Beacon-presented In My Room series is Sydney duo Lime Cordiale. The Leimbach brothers Oli and Louis are readying the release of new LP 14 Steps To A Better You in July, and are still reeling off the back of having four tracks in the triple j Hottest 100.

Green Beacon Brewing said:

“Green Beacon loves music and proudly supports Aussie artists. We’re thrilled to be able to take this to the next level by teaming up with Rolling Stone Australia. The arts and music family is doing it tough right now so we couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity to bring some of our favourite bands direct to music fans right around Australia and the world. So enjoy this epic lineup and Make it a Beacon!”

Rolling Stone Managing Editor Poppy Reid said of the partnership:

“Music has always helped the world cope during trying times. Having launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rolling Stone‘s global In My Room IGTV music series has kept the music playing and benefitted music fans in ways that are difficult to measure.

“We’re extremely grateful to have the opportunity to keep this series going here in Australia in partnership with Green Beacon Brewing and four of the most incredible acts Australia has to offer.”
