Former Snout frontman Ross McLennan (pictured) will play his final show for the year – a matinee performance featuring his New World Sympathique ensemble at the Northcote Social Club on November 8. The tour will cap off an eventful 12 months for McLennan, who was commissioned to perform at the Melbourne and Queensland festivals, and shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize with his second album Sympathy For The New World. He is reportedly working on a follow-up, which is due out next year. Supports from wayfaring duo royalchord and dark folk-noir purveyors The Orbweavers. Cost: $12 plus booking fees via the NSC website … Following Custard’s one-off reunion, another 1990s triple j mainstay have decided to return to the fold. For better or worse, Skunkhour – the acid-jazz combo fronted by Aya Larkin (now based in LA) – will embark on their first tour in eight years in December. Dates here. Supports by Beaverloop/Fini Scad/Pre.Shrunk? Fingers crossed … Quan Yeomans will return to Australia for a whistle-stop tour this month. The Regurgiator frontman, now based in Hong Kong, will perform songs from his debut solo outing The Amateur at Hobart’s Alley Cat Bar on October 23 and the Spring Break Festival in Adelaide on October 24. Recorded in Sydney, London and Hong Kong with a little help from his friends including Seja and Spod, The Amateur was released on Valve/MGM in lare 2008.
