Halid Beslic Live

^^

When: Friday 26th October
Where: Enmore Theatre

Halid Bešlić, legendary folk musician and singer who has been performing professionally since 1978 is making his long awaited return to Australia! Halid’s singing career was one of the most successful in the former Yugoslavia, and continues today throughout the entire Balkan region. By 1984 was his breakthrough year, with popular songs such as "Neću, neću dijamante" and "Budi budi uvijek srećna" being heard all over the balkans. Since then, Bešlić has recorded 17 albums and staged countless concerts worldwide. Halid also had several hit songs in the 2000s and 2010s. The 2003 album Prvi poljubac featured the hit song of the same name. The song "Miljacka", named after the Bosnian river, was featured on his 2007 album Halid 08 and the songs "Štiklom o kamen" and "Kad zaigra srce od meraka" were featured on his record Romanija (2013). Along with Halid, We are excited to announce that Sarajevo Pop/Rock Legends Crvena Jabuka will be returning to Australia with Halid for this unforgettable October Tour. Crvena Jabuka are one of the biggest names on the ex-yu rock and pop scene, a band that originated in 1985 and over 30 years later remain one of the most popular bands from the Balkan region.

The Grates

^^

When: Saturday 24th November
Where: Factory Theatre

Australian indie rock royalty The Grates are back in a big way! The Brisbane stalwarts are officially reuniting their original line up – singer Patience Hodgson, guitarist John Patterson, and drummer Alana Skyring – for a special run of shows this November/December, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their seminal album, Teeth Lost, Hearts Won. The tour has been dubbed the ‘Reunited and Excited’ tour, with shows that will see them perform in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth – playing some of the biggest venues they’ve toured in years, where they’ll be performing some of the most memorable moments of Teeth Lost, Hearts Won, as well as songs from their breakout, debut LP Gravity Won’t Get You High and some classics from the rest of their extensive and impressive catalogue. There aren’t many Australian bands in history with as much effervescence and infectiousness as The Grates. Their combination of Hodgson’s extra-extravert persona and inimitable voice, Patterson’s blistering guitar lines, and Skyring’s singular drumming style, made them a stand out from the outset when they first arrived with ‘Trampoline,’ back in 2004. Their debut album Gravity Won’t Get You High put them on the map in 2006, but it was Teeth Lost, Hearts Won’s release in 2008 that cemented the band as one of the true greats of the 2000s, thanks to stunning songs like ‘Burn Bridges,’ ‘Aw Yeah,’ and ‘Carve Your Name.’ The album debuted at number 6 on the ARIA charts (no mean feat for an indie rock band at a time when you still had to sell big numbers to get on the ARIA charts!), and was universally praised as the record that saw the band mature their sound, while retaining the youthful, unbridled energy that got them there in the first place.

The Growlers

^^

When: Friday 18th January
Where: Metro Theatre

Described by The AU Review as "a fine live band", The Growlers are no stranger to the stage having taken their live show across the globe. "What's so great about The Growlers' live performance is how raw and distinctive Brooks' vocals sound live, and their shared kookiness on stage," wrote Monster Children following the band's last stint down under. This sentiment is shared on an international scale, with Consequence of Sound (USA) remarking "Brooks Nielsen is as good a frontman as a band could ask for". Furthermore, the band's ability to cultivate and connect with their loyal audience is unparalleled; "The Growlers bring out the best in their fans and in turn, they do the same for The Growlers" (Volume Magazine, USA). The Growlers will be playing songs from their latest full length release 'City Club' (Cult Records), which was co-produced by Julian Casablancas (The Strokes / Founder of Cult Records) and Shawn Everett (Grammy Award winner for his work with Alabama Shakes). The album was recorded early 2016 in Everett's studio on downtown Los Angeles. Via Costa Mesa and down into the belly of Echo Park, The Growlers are the party band that grew into a traveling circus of psychedelia that influenced Burger and Lolipop Records and even spawned their own festival, Beach Goth. It's a zonked-out, uniquely Californian vision of bleached blond hair and drunkard culture that many bands have imitated but none have managed to reproduce. Lead singer Brooks Nielsen draws the kind of devotion among Growlers fans that Jim Morrison once did. And they've built their cult following without a single album review in Pitchfork.
