Selby & Friends

^^

When: Friday 24th May
Where: The Concourse, Chatswood

Kathryn Selby is one of Australia’s most acclaimed musicians. Her reputation as both a soloist and ensemble pianist is formidable. In this concert, she is joined by two distinguished musicians: Sydney Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster, Andrew Haveron and Australian Chamber Orchestra Principal 'Cello, Timo-Viekko Valve. Together, Selby and Friends create exciting musical chemistry. Their concert reminds us that there can be great warmth and intimacy in Beethoven's music. It begins with Beethoven's variations on a theme from Mozart's Magic Flute; piano and 'cello sing of love in its many moods - tenderness, exuberance and yearning. Beethoven's violin sonata Op. 24 explores a lyrical world filled with grace, generosity and elegance. While Carl Reinecke's arrangement of Beethoven's orchestral concerto Op. 56 reaches deep emotions with its rich musical textures and powerful expression. BEETHOVEN - Variations (7) on Mozart’s "Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen" from The Magic Flute, for 'cello and piano, WoO 46. BEETHOVEN - Violin sonata no 5 in F major, Op 24, Spring. BEETHOVEN – Concerto for violin, 'cello and piano in C major, Op 56, Triple (Arranged by Carl Reinecke). Sydney Mozart Society is a not-for-profit group dedicated to promoting the music of Mozart and other great classical composers and to providing Sydney audiences with world-class performances by leading chamber musicians.

serpentwithfeet

^^

When: Wednesday 12th June
Where: The
Lansdowne

Hailing from Baltimore USA, the now New York-based experimental musician, singer and pop savant serpentwithfeet, has announced his first ever Australian shows to be held this June. In support of his debut record and Double J feature album, “soil”, released June 2018, serpentwithfeet will perform two intimate headline shows at Sydney’s Lansdowne on June 12 and The Worker’s Club in Melbourne on June 14, alongside his festival appearance at Tasmania’s Dark Mofo festival on June 13. Tickets for Sydney and Melbourne go on sale at 1pm Thursday, April 18. My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning 12pm Wednesday, April 17 until 12pm Thursday, April 18. His influences make him dangerously cool and impossibly contemporary. Born Josiah Wise, the once Maryland choirboy, who now operates under the alias serpentwithfeet trained as a jazz vocalist, performed in a neo-soul group, went through a goth phase and at one point even considered a career as an opera singer – experiences that led him now to write and create some of the most astonishing balladry heard in modern times. Following his sensual debut on an EP titled “blisters” in 2016, the Avant-Garde/R&B singer fuses the devotional beauty of gospel with self-deprecation and despair, while at the same time avoiding any sort of genre classification. His 2018 release “soil”, which rated 8.1/10 on Pitchfork, features Wise’s ecstatic voice delivering direct emotion on tightly written pop songs that examine his most personal fears, fixations, queer insecurities and longings. In a review on “soil” by Resident Advisor they explained, “serpentwithfeet is not a project that deals in restraint, but it's the mix of melodrama and newfound control.” The Australian tour dates follow his appearance at Coachella 2019, the first opportunity for Southern fans to experience serpentwithfeet’s modern take on soul and R&B – an experimental new taste of the genre that’s not to be missed.

After a triumphant showing in this year’s triple j Hottest 100 and a stint touring the country nationally this summer with Laneway Festival, Skegss are hitting the road once more in support of their debut ARIA #2 album ‘My Own Mess’ and its new single and video ‘Road Trip.’ With previous songs ‘Up In The Clouds’ (#11), ‘Smogged Out’ (#71), ‘Stop’ (#173) and album title track ‘My Own Mess’ (#193) all appearing in the top 200 tracks voted by triple j listeners, it’s time for a fifth serving with the next track sung by Toby Cregan, offering some colourful reflection about a different kind of trip. Directed by Kai Neville on rustic old gear, ‘Road Trip’s official video is a fitting visual accompaniment to one of ‘My Own Mess’’ more subdued moments. "I jumped in the van with good pals Skegss for two days while they were on tour. In theme with Toby’s lyrics I felt 16mm would fit the track. Shot mostly handheld on my Bolex h16. It’s an older camera, you can barely see through the viewfinder. It’s small and kinda looks cool so was perfect to run around back stage and throw in front of torched fans. Not a very invasive camera rig so helps keep a candid shooting approach. Love how the 16mm rushes look and the final cut came out.” Kai Neville. Of the upcoming tour, the band offer: "We are really excited to come and play our dream venues around Australia. Dropping our debut album last year My Own Mess everything has been crazy. We are taking our friends Aaron Gocs, Totty and Mini Skirt on the road. See yas there!”

The Sisters of Mercy

^^

When: Thursday 31st October
Where: Enmore Theatre

It howls. It's grindingly beautiful. It's dangerously sentient. It’s The Sisters of Mercy returning to Australia this October and November for their first headline shows in over 7 years! Propelled from the obsession with electronica but still a far distance from the machinations of the mainstream music of the time, the signature sound of The Sisters Of Mercy cultivated a powerful mystique, creating some of the most influential rock music of the 1980s. Led by the haunting voice and visual focus of founding band member Andrew Eldritch, The Sisters Of Mercy’s ingenious and self-proclaimed ‘supercharged industrial psychedelia’ spawned a subculture of underground rock music that gained cult status and has since been cited as a major influence by the likes of Metallica, Nine Inch Nails and My Chemical Romance. “aggressive, decadent, magnetic, metallic, and..downright operatic.” - AV Club. Over the course of three decades The Sisters Of Mercy released three, utterly brilliant and hyper influential studio albums scaling the charts around the globe and have amassed a legion of devoted fans who flock to see classics such as 'Lucretia My Reflection', 'Temple Of Love' and 'This Corrosion', a testament to their incredible live shows. In 2019 The Sisters' fun juggernaut drives on with a little new chrome and a lot of vintage attitude.
