Tonight Pimmon played a great set of abstract electronics at the Big Star Basement. That’s him below, with support Mourgos Grund second.
Pimmon plays again tomorrow at De La Catessen (just off Waymouth St near FAD) together with Richard Francis (NZ) plus locals Scott O’Hara & Kynan Lawlor, and Daniel Varicchio. Highly recommended.
In other gig news, the 2009 Womadelaide lineup has been annouced. Looks good for Afrobeat fans with both Tony Allen and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80. I don’t know too much else there but it’s always a good event (even when it’s in the middle of a ridiculous March heatwave as it was this year).
Unfortunately The Bug & Warrior Queen won’t be making it to Adelaide on their upcoming tour, they’re only playing Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The Melbourne show is on Jan 25, so an Aus day long weekend could be on the cards for fans from Adelaide though.
The Bug & Warrior Queen – Poison Dart
Also missing Adelaide is Dubstep producer Plastician who is only playing Sydney & Melbourne in mid December (he’s actually playing more NZ dates than Aus ones).
In February El-P is touring. No word yet on whether any other Def Jux artists will be joining him or if there’ll be an Adelaide show, all I know so far is Feb 26 at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne.
