There are some seriously big tours going on around this country at the moment, I hope you're all spending your tax refunds wisely!
King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard w/ Bitch Diesel
Not only do King Giz have one of the longest band names in Australia, they're also one of the biggest, and for bloody good reason. These guys have worked their asses off putting out mind bending, genre shifting full length albums for quite a few years now, backing up each and every one with monster international tours. With a new album out they're blessing their country men with one of these said tours. They're live shows are infamously electrifying, with their already expansive discography, you never know what they'll be pulling out of their bag of tricks. This tour they've also brought along Melbourne ass-kickers Bitch Diesel for the road. It's a show you really don't want to miss.
Friday July 12 @ Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide
Saturday July 13 @ Astor Theatre, Perth
Sunday July 14 @ Astor Theatre, Perth
Surf rockers The Grogans kick their second weekend of touring into gear this weekend. They'll be bringing the sound of the beach with them to a couple of spots that aren't too close to the old big blue. Their first weekend of touring looked like a hit and I'm sure the shows will just get more and more fun.
Friday July 12 @ The Setts, Mildura
Saturday July 13 @ The Crown & Anchor, Adelaide
Nick Nuisance and The Delinquents
Our favourite garage masters recently put out a bunch of new songs and they're hitting the road to test em out live. If you haven't listened to the new songs, you're going to wanna get onto that pretty quick so that you know what words to yell back at front man Nick. These guys have gone from good to great very quickly and these will be some of their biggest shows yet. Be there or forever regret it.
Thursday July 11 @ Bearded Lady, Brisbane
Friday July 12 @ The Northern, Byron Bay
Saturday July 13 @ Vinnies Dive Bar, Gold Coast
Skegss w/ Totty + Mini Skirt
This juggernaut of a tour is continuing to crash through the country this weekend, hitting Tasmania and Melbourne. Last week Skegss tore down the Thebarton Theatre and backed it up with two enormous shows at The Enmore in Sydney. The energies at these shows have been through the roof, shaking the old theatres to the core. I think their might still be a couple of tickets left for the third Melbourne show, so if you want to be a part of this historical tour, I'd snatch em up quick!
Friday July 12 @ Hobart Uni Bar, Hobart
Saturday July 13 @ Forum, Melbourne
Sunday July 14 @ Forum, Melbourne (U18)
Sunday July 14 @ Forum, Melbourne
Fidlar w/ Pist Idiots
Kings of surf punk FIDLAR are hitting our shores for the first time in quite a little while. Fresh off the back of a new album, they're heading down under to cause an absolute raucous. Oh yeah Pist Idiots will be there too. They literally just finished their own massive tour. So if they look like they're about to fall asleep on stage, please forgive them. I think they might have sold their souls for rock'n'roll.
Fuck It Dude, Life's A Risk....
Friday July 12 @ Metropolis Theatre, Fremantle
