No-one was more surprised than Ed Kuepper when The Aints Play The Saints (’73 – ’78) Sydney show at The Factory sold out so quickly. Demand certainly exceeded initial expectation and the outcry over social media demanded the band consider a 2nd show. So, here we are; Ed – and the rest of The Aints, Pete, Alister, Paul – are pleased to announce a second and final Sydney performance: Thursday 23rd November @ The Bald Faced Stag, in the inner-west suburb of Leichhardt. Tickets on-sale now via baldfacedstag.com.au
The Sunnyboys will, perform a series of headline shows this summer playing venues big & small, regional and urban and ALL of them expected to sell out. The tour will celebrate six years of the rejuvenated band from their rebirth as Kids In Dust for Dig it Up! in 2012 to the present – their initial lifespan having just lasted four and half years from August 1980 to December 1984. “We really didn’t think we would ever play again as a band. But wow, we have! And we sure are having a bloody great time doing it” – Peter Oxley. Tickets available right here from Oct 24th.
Jim White (Dirty Three / Xylouris White / Venom P. Stinger) and guitarist Emmett Kelly (The Cairo Gang / Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy / Ty Segall) are THE DOUBLE. They’ve distilled THE DOUBLE’s essence into DAWN of the DOUBLE released on indie-record giant In The Red .
“You can meditate to this record,” says Larry Hardy of In the Red. “The first few seconds, it’s like, ‘OK, this sounds like the Gories. Then it’s, ‘No, this is like the Velvet Underground. Oh … it’s Glenn Branca. It’s just goes and goes.” Touring October. Tickets & details here.
The Cairo Gang is Emmett Kelly; American based guitar-slinger and songwriter extraordinaire. Emmett is also one half of The Double and sideman to both Ty Segall and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Master Kelly is in town for his Sydney & Melbourne appearances with The Double (also featuring Jim White) and will perform his Melbourne exclusive Cairo Gang show as support to the Scientists on October 28th at the Corner Hotel and for a free headline show on October 19th @ The Tote.
