I’ll be taking a sabbatical in the States during January so I’ve put together a list of the best gigs of the month for you to devour. I’ll be with you in spirit!
Thursday 5th January: Blood Orange – Goodgod Small Club – $36.80
Breathtaking pop music from the artist formerly known as Lightspeed Champion.
Friday 6th January: Flying Lotus – Metro Theatre – $59.70
Production at its very best, Flying Lotus should not be missed on his annual tour.
Saturday 14th January: Cant – The famous Spiegeltent, Sydney Festival – $43
As a member of Grizzly Bear, multi-instrumentalist Chris Taylor is brings his solo project, Cant, to the Sydney Festival.
Friday 20th January: Alpine – Oxford Art Factory – $18.40
If you haven’t heard of Melbourne 6-piece Alpine, you haven’t read this gig guide before. They’re touring to celebrate the release of their new single, “Hands”.
Saturday 21st January: Whitest Boy Alive – Keystone Festival Bar – SOLD OUT
Hopefully you were quick and snapped up tickets to Whitest Boy Alive earlier as this event has sold out. If not, start making friends.
Sunday 29th January: Active Child – Oxford Art Factory – $49.20
This will be the gig of the month, and quite possibly the year. Active Child’s ambient beauty took the world by storm last year. In town for the Laneway Festival Tour, he’ll be supported by locals Caitlin Park and Oliver Tank - this is a gig you should arrive on time to!
We will miss you Hughster! Bring us back the kind of coolness you can only get from the NYC. Check out hughsters, and other guest bloggers, profiles here.
