Cate Le Bon

^^

When: Wednesday 11th December
Where:
Factory Theatre

Mistletone proudly presents the great Cate Le Bon and her band, with special guests to be announced. Gloriously surreal and unapologetically strange, Welsh avant-pop legend Cate Le Bon has been making her brilliant experimental weirdo art-pop for over a decade now. She recorded her latest, Mercury Prize-shortlisted masterpiece Reward with frequent collaborators, drummer Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), guitarists Huw Evans and Josh Klinghoffer (Red Hot Chili Peppers), saxophonist Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), and Kurt Vile. “Surrealist, tactile, against the grain. Welsh polymath Cate Le Bon keeps a steady, curious hand. A ringleader who’s prepared to stake out uncertain territory, she walks the tightrope between krautrock aloofness and heartbreaking tenderness; deadpan served with a twinkle in the eye” – AUNTY MEREDITH. “On her fifth album, the Welsh musician is at her best. The more elaborate and eccentric her music becomes, the more she sounds like herself.” – PITCHFORK.

Dead Prez

^^

When: Wednesday 11th December
Where: Metro
Theatre

One of the most respected outfits in hip hop, Dead Prez are bringing their signature sound to Sydney for the 20th anniversary of their much loved debut album Let's Get Free. Following in the footsteps of Public Enemy, KRS-One and 2pac, they utilise brilliant, banging tunes to address the impact of unthinking consumerism, rampant sexism and homophobia in hip hop. Their signature tune, ‘Hip Hop’, is an incredible example of their fiercely intelligent art — the perfect answer to all that crass, commercial crap about cars, chains and clubs. Taking inspiration from the life and social activism of Malcolm X, the duo have released two proper albums, two underground mix-tapes and two solo albums of street level political hip-hop that is heavily aligned with challenging the status quo. Joining them at The Metro Theatre this December is the unmatchable Genesis Owusu and up-and-coming hop hip prodigy Lil Spacely.

Flying Lotus 3D

^^

When: Friday 24th January
Where:
Enmore Theatre

The Operatives are proud to present the exclusive first appearance of the globally-renowned, mind-bending Flying Lotus 3D experience.  No stranger to Australiasian shores, the artist known by fans affectionately as FlyLo has toured his past five studio albums down-under, since he attended Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne in 2006 and met some long-term collaborators in the cohort. Whether he's covered in women's bras at a secret Captain Murphy show, getting the 'shoe' at Meredith Music Festival, or blowing the curved-roof off the Sydney Opera House, FlyLo's shows have been a much-talked about affair for anyone interested in experimental music and visual arts across the country. Fans new and old, this time, are invited to forget what they've seen or heard before - Flying Lotus 3D makes the extensive and first-of-it's-kind stage show Layer 3 look simple. Even the tech press has been floored, awarding the patented show 'Tech Enhancement of the Year' (Pollstar 2019). 3D Live, the creators of the tech touts the visuals viewable from 120 to 140 degree angles, meaning the holograms, usually flat for the cinema experience, can be seen from around a concert hall. Complimentary 3D glasses mean viewers can see music and a virtual world literally collide - taking dancers into a kaleidoscope of pulsing colours, textures or imagery created by long-term collaborators Strangeloop and Timeboy. While the incarnation of the AV show has been performed for the past 2 years around the globe, and now is refined for his new album specifically - FlyLo is quick to point out that no night is ever the same, with both his music and visuals being improvised live by himself and the visual artists. We don't want to give away too much of what revellers can expect to see - but fans will know what they're going to hear. Flying Lotus' 2019 album, the fire-themed epic, "Flamagra". Following on from his Grammy-nominated LP "You're Dead" FlyLo's sixth studio album has a dream cast of collaborators, the perfect foil for his jazz-influenced, dizzying beats. No less than Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, Shabazz Palaces, Toro y Moi, and of course, Thundercat appear. Even David Lynch pops up for some spooky spoken word. It's an album loaded with jam sessions of electro-funk with hip-hop intuition, and the propulsive energy of the music was crafted with his cinematic synesthesia in mind. It's little wonder Flying Lotus' music creates inspiration for some of the biggest artists in modern music - born Steven Ellison in Los Angeles, FlyLo is the grandson of Motown songwriter Marilyn McLeod and is the great-nephew of Alice Coltrane. He got his musical start crafting beats for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim channel before releasing his own productions on debut '1983', the producer and occasional rapper quickly gained a reputation for his unique take on dusty hip-hop beats ala Madlib, as unquantized as Dilla, with a signature sound all its own, dropping some of the most distinctive albums of the decade with complex electronic odyssey "Cosmogramma" and the Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dog and Herbie Hancock collaborated record, "You're Dead!". Releasing music on revered labels like Hyberdub, Ghostly International, Ninja Tune and Warp, and of course, his own imprint Brainfeeder. Never one to run out of creative energy, FlyLo stepped into his passion for cinema in 2017, writing and directing the Sundance-premiered horror-future flick, 'Kuso'. In his first AU/NZ tour since 2015, FlyLo fans be warned - Flying Lotus 3D is coming. Fire is coming.

When: Wednesday 29th April
Where: Enmore Theatre

Back in the country for his biggest Australian shows to date, Irish gem Dermot Kennedy has celebrated the release of his long-awaited debut album Without Fear by locking in four special dates throughout April and May 2020. Ready to tread the boards at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney, the Forum in Melbourne, the Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane and the Astor Theatre in Perth, Kennedy will arrive at the zenith of a dizzying build that has taken him from busking on the streets of his native Dublin to the precipice of international mega stardom. 300 million streams, a “colossus of a voice” (as described by The Guardian), a huge debut EP in 2017’s Doves & Ravens and now, Without Fear: a debut album which exhibits the wildly emotive balladry and captivating production wizardry that have become Kennedy’s distinctive trademarks. His breakthrough journey was rubber stamped in early October as Without Fear zoomed straight to #1 on the UK Album Chart (knocking off the reissue of a little album called Abbey Road for good measure), making the 27 year old the first Irish solo artist to score a #1 debut in nearly 20 years. This landmark achievement was accompanied by the rising fortunes of Kennedy’s latest single ‘Outnumbered’, a powerfully propulsive tune that has hit the Top 10 in the UK, Ireland and Belgium. It’s also accompanied by a killer video which is currently heading towards 11 million YouTube views. Australian eyes are also smiling as they behold the man who was first discovered plying his trade on the cobbled laneways of Dublin by Oscar winner Glen Hansard (The Frames, Once). Kennedy has become a regular visitor Down Under, hitting both Falls and Splendour in the Grass festivals in recent years and making sure that his growing throng of followers get some regular face time with this heart throb. Without Fear hit the charts immediately on local release and is causing fans to fall further in love with Dermot Kennedy's astonishing voice. They’ll no doubt flock to these special shows to witness a generational talent in action.

Cowboy Junkies

^^

When: Wednesday 13th May
Where: Enmore Theatre

An Evening with Cowboy Junkies to feature career-spanning repertoire from The Trinity Session to All That Reckoning. Canadian alt-country pioneers Cowboy Junkies will return to Australian and New Zealand for the first time in 20 years in May 2020. Anyone who has followed Cowboy Junkies’ three-decade-long journey knows the band has always remained true to its unique artistic vision. In 1988, they proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise with its introspective, quiet intensity. Their new album, All That Reckoning, once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. It may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded. Formed in Toronto in 1985 with siblings Michael Timmins on guitar, Margo Timmins on vocals, Peter Timmins on drums, and Michael’s lifelong friend Alan Anton on bass, Cowboy Junkies has never had a break-up or taken a hiatus. They’ve never even endured a line-up change. The group has created a critically acclaimed body of work that has endeared them to an audience unwavering in its loyalty, and which is ripe for discovery by those who may have lost track along the way, or indeed who are new to the group’s charms. Their May 2020 tour of Australian and New Zealand will be one the undoubted highlights of the musical year.
