I was going to begin with a witty little quip that involved red-headed people, their imminent extinction, something about safaris (I haven’t quite ironed out exact details at this stage), but we’re all better than that aren’t we? This isn’t 2009. I’m sorry I almost underestimated you.
Outdated jokes aside, let’s get down to business. Bringing their self-titled LP to life, the lovely young men from Jinja Safari will be putting on their performing pants and playing in Melbourne as part of their 16 show nationwide tour, The Bay of Fires. Having spent time sharing their shoulder-shimmying tunes and dreamy vibes all over the world, the Sydney-based band will be wiggling their toes in Australian soil over September and October, grooving out at The Forum for a one night only show on September 27. I said one night only everybody, this is not a drill!
The Triple j featured band will be supported by local lovelies Okenyo and Cub Scouts, raising the good times to the power of three. We’re talking about good times cubed here. I’m no mathematician, but that is a lot of funk.
Known for their energetic live performances and infectious dance rhythms, you had better start warming up that finger clicking and toe tapping as soon as possible in preparation.
