By the time they return to Australia to open Adelaide Festival alongside Scottish icons Mogwai, The Red Paintings will have played over 150 shows across North America, the UK and Europe in support of their stunning debut ‘The Revolution Is Never Coming.’  Their string-infused alternative rock is coupled with live on-stage performance art and body painting which has captured the imagination of thousands of art fans around the world.
Vampillia (JPN) + Fourteen Nights At Sea + Trash McSweeney & Alix Kol
Fri March 6 at Freemason’s Hall – more info here
No band has been more requested for a return since their sold out Australian tour of 2010 than Japan’s Vampillia. This incredible collective can’t be described in words, you just need to watch this video.
They are joined by Melbourne instrumentalists Fourteen Nights At Sea and a special acoustic set by The Red Paintings’ Trash McSweeney & Alix Kol.
65daysofstatic (UK) + Tangled Thoughts of Leaving
Sat March 7 at Freemanson’s Hall – more info here
English post-rock legends 65daysofstatic return to Australia for the first time in 2 years, including their first ever performance in Adelaide. The influential group have played countless shows around the world, collaborated and toured with The Cure and are completely unstoppable live.
65 are supported by one of Australia’s finest live acts, Tangled Thoughts of Leaving. This is perhaps the best description for their piano-driven instrumental compositions:  “…like The Dirty Three meets The Necks on steroids.”
