Just discovered this very exciting news from Mona's
blog "Exile on Moan Street"
Arguably the stand-out performers at this years inaugural
All Tomorrow's Parties Festival at Mt.Buller, the Dirty Three
return to Australia this summer for a national tour -
their first in almost four (4) years - performing their
magnum-opus Ocean Songs, in its entirety.
The tour will take in an appearance at Sydney's month long
arts event, Sydney Festival and also the Perth International
Arts Festival. In addition the Dirty Three will perform Ocean
Songs at headline shows in Brisbane and Melbourne.
But that's not all... joining Dirty Three for the Melbourne,
Brisbane and Sydney performances will be long time
Dirty Three favourites, Laughing Clowns, performing their early
'hits' package 'History of Rock n' Roll Volume One',
also in its entirety. Yep, the same line-up that emerged after
a 25 year hiatus to perform at this years inaugural Australian
All Tomorrow's Parties Festivals - Kuepper, Wegener, Elliott,
Miller and Spence - will join forces once more time to put new
life into old classics such as Holy Joe, Sometimes
(I Just Can't Live with Anyone) and Everything That Flies.
Full dates as follows.
Thursday 21st: Melbourne, Forum *
Monday 25th: Brisbane, Tivoli *
Tuesday 26th: Sydney Festival, Enmore Theatre *
Thursday 11th: Perth Festival, PIAF -
