There's an old Chinese saying: 'Good things come in pairs'. With the exception of tinnitus and earwax, this is largely true. Just think of shoes, poached eggs at a cafe, Wayne's World, toasted crumpets, the seventh Harry Potter film, the original and the remix of the Bedroom Intruder video — and Gotye concerts at August's Graphic Festival.

Gotye (aka Wouter De Backer or Wally) has just announced a second show to follow his sold-out one on August 20, which as far as good things go, ranks pretty highly. Wally is a jack-of-all-trades and a master of, well, all — whether it's singing, songwriting, producing, being a one-man band or traversing an array of sonic landscapes. Gotye: An Animated Album Preview promises to be no less varied or enterprising. For the first performance of his third album, Making Mirrors, he'll be joined on stage by a 10-piece mini orchestra and will set the score to original visuals by some of Australia's top animators, including Rubber House, Lucinda Schreiber, Mechanical Apple and pictureDRIFT.

The only problem with Gotye's previous videos is that they're as short as they are catchy, so news of a second chance at witnessing this hour-plus audiovisual extravaganza makes us more excited than a nice pair of cosy socks. Get in quick though — tickets are sure to be even hotter than the second Franco brother. Okay, we'll stop now...
