Tour Diary: Mathas (WA) on the road with Funkoars (Part Three)!

The end of the Funkoars' national tour has taken some serious recovery. Wrapping up with a stomper show in their hometown of Adelaide, the entire Golden Era family rolled up to celebrate. Mathas, who has been giving us some insights into his experiences on the road with the hip-hop crew, presents us with his final tour diary installment - from reconnecting with the Big Village mob in Sydney, almost sleeping in Newcastle car park, to meeting everyone's hero Larry Emdur, the last leg of the Funkoars tour was a hectic trip for the WA MC.

Tour Diary: Mathas (WA) on the road with Funkoars! (Part One)

Perth rapper Mathas is currently on the road with Funkoars, bringing chaotic live shows to fans around the country. The tour kicked off in Queensland last weekend and will continue through until June 12th, where the crew comes back to Funkoars' hometown of Adelaide for a show that will most likely leave fans and performers alike wearied, exhilarated...all of the above. For Mathas, the tour is an opportunity to take "Free Shit" - his new single - to more people than probably ever before, a great way to get the hype for his forthcoming Armwrestling Atlas album even more built up.
