There are many facets to singer Mikelangelo, most prominent though is the hair. The same from almost any angle, Mikelangelo's coif is like a creature all its own, pushing you to wonder if the do itself drives the star's deeper animus. Alternately Croatian, Melbournian, homicidal, horny, talented or tasteless, you're never quite sure how much of him is real and how much is affected. All his component parts seem plausible, yet he somehow leaves you with a deeper feeling of doubt. He's bringing it all to Notes in Newtown with a new line-up to back up his mournful croon. Having toured previously with his mordant, gypsy-folk band the Black Sea Gentlemen, he's playing now with surf-western band the Tin Star.

Mikelangelo has changed in other ways since his previous engagements. He's always had a particular penchant for fashion, but now he's sharing his couture tips in personal blog of styling tips, retro-chic shops and pomade. So if you want to get to have a closer look — at the hair, the fashion, the singing or the Tin Star — Mikelangelo is ready to receive your adoration.
