Fremantle based Otherside Brewing Co. started the competition this year to support talented West Australian musicians stage a comprehensive tour of the south-west, mid-west and Goldfields regions.

Good Doogs have made a strong first impressions on the musical industry, taking the national airways by storm after uploading tracks to Triple-J Unearthed. 

Since then the local band has carved out a name for themselves and have showed no signs of slowing down. 

Good Doogs drummer Michael Grainger encouraged the Mandurah community to get behind their local music and vote.

The band has made the finals in the competition and is currently in the lead, ahead of The Milkmen and Luke Fox and Friends. 

Otherside ran a similar competition last year, which was for a national touring grant and was won by Perth band Verge Collection. 

“Seeing as we are a band comprised of Mandurah members, who really want to push and expand the music scene in Mandurah,” Grainger said. 

“We thought something like this could bring then whole music scene here and the whole community together in general.

“If a Mandurah band wins, its only going to benefit the music scene here as a whole and help us put the city on the map in a music sense.”

Tapped By Otherside grants are funded through part proceeds of every Otherside beer sold.
