Footy + Superstar + Evelyn Ida Morris
Clawing through the wind and rain to catch three excellent homegrown acts.
July 16, 2013
Through dark wintry nights, Melbournians press on, bound by their love of music to check out live gigs. Melbourne venues outperform the rest of Australia, according to the annual survey by America’s live music bible Pollstar, and as for Melbourne's homegrown acts? Well, it wouldn't be like Melbourne to boast *ahem* but they do make it well worth clawing through the wind and rain.
Footy is one such example of local talent. Not for football boffins, they're an electric piano duo featuring the fine fingerwork of Paddy Gordon and Lew Mulverino. Fresh from releasing their critically acclaimed debut record Mobile Cemetery, they're classical, psychedelic and poppy all at once. On stage, Superstar will join them think lurid, transient tunes and Pikelet’s Evelyn Ida Morris, who has an uncanny ability to hand off melodic lines to wildly erratic movements.
This will be really *really* good, guys. You should go.
