They put bands on Melbourne trams for people’s commuting pleasure

We’ve all heard of La Blogothéque’s Take Away Shows and NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concerts. These are just a couple of many websites known for offering informal videos of musicians playing live in unlikely places. Tram Sessions are Melbourne’s answer to this latest rage in the music business.

Tram Sessions was created by Nick Wallberg and Carl Malmsten in 2010. It is a not-for-profit project where they film impromptu, guerilla style gigs on trams for Melburnians’ commuting pleasure. These guys have filmed many local and international acts such as Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls), Lisa Mitchell, and Vance Joy.

Above video is a live performance from Vance Joy for his single ‘Riptide’. The track recently took the top spot of Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2013.
