TURIN BRAKES (UK) with special guest
Thursday 2 May 2013 8:00pm
The intricate melodies of ‘The Optimist’ won them many Australian fans nearly a decade ago, and now the Turin Brakes duo of Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian, along with long time band members Rob Allum (drums), and Eddie Myer (bass) are back in the country for a full band set in only their second visit to our shores. Largely overlooked by commercial radio, the band’s staunchly independent approach has won them a cult following in many countries and led to nominations for the Q Awards, The Brits, and the Mercury Prize among others. While this recognition is richly deserved their live set is where the band truly shines and is why so many other bands count them as an influence. Watch the video for ‘Ascension Day’ here.
