Rich Brain

^^

When: Saturday 31st August
Where: EVAN Theatre, Panthers

Following on from his impressive Australian debut just last year which saw rising international star RICH BRIAN sell-out his first ever shows in Australia within a matter of hours, the 19-year-old Indonesian rapper returns to Australia next month for a run of headline shows at some of Australia’s biggest theatres. On his new album “The Sailor”, Rich Brian is not only feeling the sea change, but motion sickness too. “The Sailor” is a literal and metaphorical expression of a young man who is observing his own changing-self in the greater context of today’s world. Following an extended and anxiety-inducing writer’s block, making an album that was written with real instruments in real time in the studio was the antidote to the paralysis of overthinking. The Sailor is pure – clear in motivation and self-awareness. It’s about being another Asian kid with dreams, one who just went for them and continues to make them happen. The intent was to inspire others like Brian to be curious - to see what else there is to see. The Sailor has a gentle, wide-eyed wisdom; looking to the future and becoming more burdened with life. But not yet. Brian can see it coming, and some of it is already here, but there are many seas to sail yet.

Regurgitator

^^

When: Friday 8th November & Saturday 9th November
Where: Metro Theatre

Emerging from one of the eddies in the independent undercurrent of Brisbane’s 90s music scene, the past 2.5 decades have been of ceaseless reinventive spirit, playing with form and flux, the affection of self-parody, ever ambling a rickety bridge of modus vivendi, all bagged up with an effervescent outsider enthusiasm that has never left their skin. And now... to pound the quarter century mark with a fully blown visually rehabilitated retrospective of a show straddling a holographic hyperbole of antiquated technology, trawling the analogue back through the digital. And when it comes to those ubiquitous lists... Maybe 11 ALBUMS or so if you count the live, Jingles compilation and latest kids release; EPS surely must be 7 of these at least... and in their time maybe 16 singles, a few 7inches and 5 or so DVD releases. And MUSIC VIDEOS feels like maybe 47 or so of those... SHIRTS jeez, must have been close to 120 or so designs spread across... approximately 905 PERFORMANCES or thereabouts including maybe 25 national headline tours, 6 Big Day Out tours, so many festivals you could poke a stick at... along with some great times playing with DEVO, Boredoms, The Prodigy, TISM, Audio Active, CIV, The Mint Chicks, Ratatat, Senyawa, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Helmet, The Melvins and more including the odd collaborative excursions into theatre, dance, live soundtracks and generally just bent on allowing an unstable ingenuity... and on that note who could forget 21 days inside a glass BUBBLE! Whatever the extent of this output means in the greater scheme of things the obvious consistencies have always been the open pursuit of creative probity, humour above serious intent, sustainable mentalities above any need for dominance, and about as honest unto themselves as possible - whomever that might be? All in all just playing to the ad-hoc... making it up as it goes. Joining us for this head-brush of a warp drive through our times is none other than Japan's coruscating icons of sugar punk power popsters SHONEN KNIFE, along with erstwhile compadres in the mirthful upending of contemporary culture THE FAUVES. As well as featuring the always welcome festival invitations including CALOUNDRA MUSIC FESTIVAL on SUN 6 OCT, and LOST LANDS in Werribee on SUN 3 NOV (which also feature ever bending kids adventure POGOGO SHOW) we also present 2 days of extended celebration in hometown BRISBANE featuring on Saturday from 5.00pm - DICKLORD, TOTAL PACE (tbc?) and FAT ; and on Sunday from 3.00pm - KOKO UZI, THE STRESS OF LEISURE and SCREAMFEEDER . REGURGITATOR. Quarter Pounder - 25 years of being consumed. With guest superlatives at selected stores... SHONEN KNIFE & THE FAUVES
