Philadelphia Grand Jury + Washington + Hungry Kids Of Hungary @ Valley Studios, Brisbane 10 April 2009 & more : April 2009 Tour

THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS TOUR

It’s a coincidence that three of the artists recently singled out by triplejunearthed.com name-check geographical places in their titles; their position as some of the country’s best new talent is not. Handpicked by our national broadcaster to perform at the 2009 Big Day Out, rising stars PHILADELPHIA GRAND JURY, WASHINGTON and HUNGRY KIDS OF HUNGARY now join forces to present The International Relations tour.

Traversing the Eastern states in April 2009, the three bands will co-headline a tour that sees them perform in many places for the first time.

The tour culminates in a very special FREE gig at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney, recorded exclusively for triple j and filmed by triple j tv for later broadcast.

cultofluna Cult Of Luna
Swedish post-metal masters!
Presented by: Scorpion Entertainment by arrangement with Live Nation

Post Metal Masters, Cult Of Luna are heading to Australia for the very first time this February!

Cult of Luna was formed in 1998 by guitarist Johannes Persson and vocalist Klas Rydberg in Umea, Sweden.

Their sound has progressed from being heavily doom metal influenced to one much less aggressive and more about orchestration which falls into a sub-genre known as post-metal. CoL are at post metal’s forefront along with contemporary such as Neurosis, Pelican and Isis. The band also cite Radiohead and Pink Floyd as major influences.

CHICAGO – The Musical – to tour Australia in 2009

chicago

Australia, prepare yourself for the razzle-dazzle of the hit musical Chicago, set to tour nationally throughout 2009 following a Gala Opening at Brisbane’s Lyric Theatre, QPAC. Winner of six Tony Awards®, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy® and thousands of standing ovations, Chicago is Broadway’s longest-running Musical Revival and the longest running American Musical every to play the West End.

It is nearly a decade since the “story of murder, greed, corruption, violence, exploitation, adultery and treachery” played in Australia. Known for its sizzling score and sensational choreography, Chicago is the story of a nightclub dancer, a smooth talking lawyer and a cell block of sin and merry murderesses.

“I’m thrilled to bring back to the Australian stage this wonderful musical, especially with the extraordinary cast we have assembled. Velma Kelly is the role which took Caroline O’Connor to Broadway for the first time, and her legion of fans will, I’m sure, be overjoyed to see her perform it once again. Sharon Millerchip has previously played Velma in Chicago ten years ago, and since has won awards for her many musical theatre roles. She will be an astonishing Roxie. Craig McLachlan blew us all away with his incredible audition, and he’s going to astound people with his talent as a musical theatre performer. And I am very excited to welcome Gina Riley back to the stage. Her strength, her presence and her powerhouse voice will make her a staggering Mama Morton. This truly is the perfect cast.

Ben Kweller @ The Zoo, Brisbane 9th April 2009

Ben Kweller returns to tour Australia in April in support of his new album Changing Horses, released through Shock Records.

The album is his fourth full-length and was produced by Kweller and recorded mostly in Austin, TX, where he and his family recently re-located.

benkweller1

The title is meaningful as it represents a sea change for the 27-year-old Texan-bred musician. Beginning with his first record, Sha Sha, released in 2002, Kweller’s albums have always been stylistically restless, moving from indie rock to ballads to anti-folk to melodic rock, often from song to song.
