Feels Presents are bringing some diverse and great artists to Oz this year, check these gigs out if you can.
Xylouris White kick off their first Australian tour this Thursday 15th January at the Sydney Festival Spiegeltent and back it up with a MONA / FOMA performance on Friday and Melbourne’s Howler with support Laura Jean on Saturday. Sydney & Melbourne will sell-out so if you were vacillating, don’t! “At the height of their energy they are practically shredding: Xylouris’ fingers as much of a blur as White’s Free free-flowing limbs…”
Watch Spoon perform The Beast and Dragon, Adored a web only exclusive taken from their their Austin City Limits TV appearance. A reminder that Deep Sea Arcade are special guests to Spoon for all three east coast shows and Triple J unearthed winners Hockey Dad have been added to their Sydney line-up. The Perth Festival show is now sold-out and the others are humming along. Not long to go now…
Mick Turner, guitarist for Dirty Three, has been added as support to Mogwai‘s show’s in Brisbane, Wellington and Auckland shows. The calm before the storm? Or maybe a nice cup of tea prior to going out and getting drunk! Whichever, it’s an inspired choice. Meanwhile. Mogwai Teenage Exorcists. A new track from the new ep. Dig it.
J Mascis – he of Dinosaur Jr / Witch / Gas Food Lodging / Nike hi-tops footwear range and other notable cultural landmarks – also lands in Melbourne and all over the country this February. Magic Dirt’s Adalita joins J for the bulk of the ride as they both perform solo and electric. J’s wry humour is not often appreciated but try and stop yourself cackling to this interview from BBC 6 last week. Skip to 2 hrs 8 mins 35 secs if you want the edited J experience or listen to the whole show.
The rise of the Sunnyboys continues with the announcement of two sold-out shows in Brisbane – two months prior to the shows. That’s some 2000+ tickets! The march continue into Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Sydney with all shows expected to go the same way. And did we tell you the legendary Riptides are also on the Sydney bill? Too damn good. Elsewhere The New Christs, DM3 and young punks Bad // Dreems join the bill. Working in tandem, Sunnyboys albums Individuals and Get Some Fun are to be reissued in February both of them including bonus tracks, alternate mixes and live material – it’s a Sunny Day!
Tickets for all our shows are available from www.feelpresents.com. We sure hope to see you somewhere this summer.
