Tours Missing Adelaide

One of the greatest bands around when I was going to gigs in Sydney in the 90’s was Crow, they’re back together and are playing at the Northcote Social club in Melbourne on July 25.

The Flaming Lips play in Sydney on July 28th (after I’ve left though).

In early August NZ pop legends the Bats launch their latest album The Guilty Office in Sydney & Melbourne. I was fortunate to be in Christchurch for the launch there back in December and it was fantastic, definitely recommend the gig and the cd.

Also coming up GZA is touring the east coast in September playing Liquid Swords.  There are rumours that fellow Wu Tang Clan member Raekwon might tour later in the year as well.

Animal Collective play the Meredith Music Festival plus shows in Sydney, Brisbane & Perth in December.
