Thredbo’s après scene will be pumping this Saturday as the First Base Après series kicks off at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel’s outdoor Alpine Bar. Billed as a “Vintage Après Soiree”, First Base is hosted by Tom Tilley (Triple J/Client Liaison) and Hugo Gruzman (Flight Facilities) and is presented by Falcona and Canadian Club and features throwback tunes from some of the hottest live acts in the country. It is all about hot tubs, vintage après outfits and having a good time and these après parties are not to be missed.
This week will feature a live set from Owl Eyes who will be bringing her disco inspired tunes and irresistible dance tracks to the Alpine Bar from 5.30-6.30pm. The show kicks off at 2pm with live DJs followed by the Falcona DJs from 3-4.30pm. Then Tom and Hugo host a set from 4.30 to 5.30 before Owl Eyes hits the stage. First Base wrap things up at the Alpine Bar with another set from 6.30 to 7.30pm.
Of course, things don’t end there with the Keller Bar opening its doors at 8pm with DJs Slippery Trout and Friends spinning tunes from 9.30 to 1.30am.
