When the Coen Brothers turned Cormac McCarthy's No Country for Old Men into a big-screen neo-western crime thriller, they made one of the best movies of their lengthy career. It's hard to improve on perfection, but the famous filmmaking duo managed it with their multiple Oscar-winning adaptation – and now Brisbane Festival is endeavouring to follow in their footsteps.

At this one-off Brisbane Hear My Eyes event, Aussie rockers Tropical Fuck Storm (aka Gareth Liddiard, Fiona Kitschin, Lauren Hammel and Erica Dunn) will add an extra layer to the acclaimed Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin-starring flick by playing their own original score while the film screens. After premiering the performance to huge success in Melbourne last year, this unique night of music and movies finally comes north, hitting up The Tivoli on Thursday, September 26.

Prepare to watch a ruthless killer unleash his worst in a modern classic that's both grim and poetic — and prepare to hear anarchic psych-rock sounds (and watch the band belt them out live) at the same time.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 21, with pre-sales from Wednesday, June 19.
